AllMusic Review by

Decade is an excellent singles compilation, featuring all of the highlights from Duran Duran's heyday -- "Planet Earth," "Girls on Film," "Rio," "Is There Something I Should Know," "Union of the Snake," "The Reflex," "The Wild Boys," "Save a Prayer," "A View to a Kill" -- plus late-'80s hits like "Notorious," "Skin Trade," "I Don't Want Your Love," and "All She Wants Is." By juxtaposing their stylish new wave pop against their latter-day lite-funk experiments, the group's decline becomes shockingly evident, but no other Duran Duran album sums up their appeal like Decade, and it's hard to imagine another compilation working the same ground as effectively.
