Product Description


Minus Cindy Wilson this is marginally less cosmic than its multi-platinum predecessor. Still, there's plenty of delicious absurdity ("Is That You Mo-Dean"), Seventies camp ("Hot Pants Explosion"), serious romance ("Revolution Earth") and a tune ("Good Stuff") that frankly celebrates the wild thing. Let's not be stingy: this is great• stuff. --Jeff Bateman

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! This 1992 album was the follow-up to their hugely-successful Cosmic Thing, which was their last album of the '80s. Moving on with their 'party band' persona (but minus founding member Cindy Wilson), the '90s version of the band was just as fun, catchy and focused as ever. Though down to a trio, there's not a drop in energy or ideas and Good Stuff has plenty of both. How can you resist an album with a song like 'Hot Pants Explosion'? Other highlights include 'Revolution Earth', 'Breezin'' and 'Dreamland'. The B-52s would not release another studio album for 16 years! Warner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a cosmic hit! July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Following the release of COSMIC THING in 1989,B-52's member Kate Pierson joined R.E.M. in the recording of ME IN HONEY and SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE from R.E.M.'s 1991 megahit album OUT OF TIME(I forgot to mention the latter song in the review for COSMIC THING). In 1992 came this album which sold far less than COSMIC THING. The B-52's were reduced from a quartet to a trio. Cindy Wilson quit the band after COSMIC THING. Fred Schneider's words,as usual,are spoken instead of sung. On the first track there's a bit of weirdness("tell it like it T-I is"). HOT PANTS EXPLOSION("at the factory") is awesome("they're getting so hot,we might have to take them off!")! The title track is also awesome. Pierson sings,"How about giving me some of that good stuff!". Schneider replies,"Here it is,here it is!". IS THAT YOU MO-DEAN is cool. To this day,I have no idea what that's supposed to mean. THE WORLD'S GREEN LAUGHTER is instrumental. Other cool tracks are BAD INFLUENCE,VISION OF A KISS and BREEZIN'. Not one song on this album gained as much attention as COSMIC THING'S LOVE SHACK. After this album,the band recorded MEET THE FLINTSTONES for the 1994 Universal film,THE FLINTSTONES which I like better than the version heard in the animated sitcom's opening and closing montages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff indeed July 5 2004
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I'm by no means an expert on the musical career of the B-52's; Good Stuff is in fact the only B-52's album I own, but I think it's a great CD. The B-52's are nothing if not quirky, and this special characteristic is front and center on such tracks as Tell It Like It T-I-Is, the wonderfully fun, retro Hot Pants Explosion, and Is That You Mo-Dean? This album looked like it would make a big splash, as the single Good Stuff was quite popular upon its release; for some reason, though, the album just seemed to slip into oblivion after that. It's too bad because there are some surprisingly impressive tracks here: Revolution Earth, for example, is sort of a love song on a cosmic scale that has a soothing quality I can listen to again and again. Vision of a Kiss is another awesome song that I thought had the potential to be a big hit indeed.
There really is an element of the cosmic in B-52's music, one that soothes while it entertains, all the while communicating some serious messages (okay, not in every song, but definitely in some of them) that belie the group's fun-loving musical persona. The World's Green Laughter and Breezin' don't do much for me, but every other song on this album has a contagious quality that almost requires you to sing along and join the fun. Whenever I get this CD out, I end up listening to it over and over again for weeks on end, and it never fails to raise a smile even during the darkest of days. Maybe this isn't the group's best album, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff All Right June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
While not as solid from start to finish as its immediate predecessor, "Cosmic Thing", "Good Stuff" is just that -- good stuff, at times even great stuff.
The best songs on here are the first three -- the album just explodes out of the gates (much like Smarty Jones did at the Belmont Stakes, only to fade at the very end). The first three songs are "Tell it Like it T-I-Is", "Hot Pants Explosion" (super fun and very catchy), and "Good Stuff".
The other two songs on here that are very fun are "Is that You Mo-Dean?" and "Bad Influence" (the last song on here and the one that arrests the slide quality-wise of the last half of the album).
I give this album 4 stars because these five songs are 5-star quality, while the remainder of the album is 3-star quality. Therefore, for a casual B-52s fan, this honestly is not a must-own. You could get a couple of the best songs from here on the B-52s Anthology along with some other classics. If you love the B-52s, though, you really ought to get this album to get all five very catchy songs I mentioned above.

5.0 out of 5 stars KATE PIERSON SHINES! March 26 2004
By David
Format:Audio CD
Maybe this album not quite the same as "Cosmic Thing" or "Wild Planet" or any of the other B-52's albums but, if you really listen to them each of their albums are rather differant to the other. The production here is, I feel, much better than that on "Cosmic Thing" and the album does really grows on you after repeated listenings. I bought it when it first came out and I was far from disappointed. For me Kate Pierson has always been my favorite member of the group and, with the temporary departure of Cindy Wilson from this album, Kate is given her chance to really shine. Her vocals on "Revolution Earth" are, excuse the pun, out of this world! She brings the song to life in all it's psychadelic glory. It could easily pass for a companion piece to 1989's "Roam" (both songs had the same writers). Kate is also given the chance to show just what she can do on "Vision Of A Kiss". She is not "flat" or "sugary sweet" as other reviewers have stated - she really lets loose and that is pretty much what the B-52's are all about - just let loose and have a great time (and this album will definately help you do it!)

Even after thier guitar player died of AIDS, the band continued to write great songs. With Cindy's departure however, the void was painfully obvious with this debacle. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD!
The b-52's, a band still playing today has made a great CD for a great price. All songs are entertaining, well-thought, and very, very dependent on vocals.

I don't exactly bear any animosity towards this album, seeing as I bought it for $4.99, but compared to the previous album, it's phenomenally weak. Read more
