5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Greatest Recordings Ever... March 3 2005
By Eyes and Teeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
And that's just not hyperbole. Pardon my ignorance, but I was just not aware of the full extent of Devo's power. These seminal recordings (this and Volume 2) truly blew my mind, and actually made me ashamed that I had not heard them previously. I was only familiar with Devo post-77, which is some of the finest post-punk, new wave ever. If you have not heard these two albums, do yourself a favor and seek them out. Kill if you must. These tracks are much rawer and more deranged than later Devo. From crude vocoder paired with detuned synth duets, to fuzzy guitar rock, this is some truly Devolutionary music for Devolutionary spuds. Some of these songs have a leering, almost sinister edge which was later smoothed out for mass consumption. It is absolutely criminal that these two albums are out-of-print. I sure hope Mark Mothersbaugh and Company hold the rights to these gems, because they deserve exposure. You need this, you just don't know how much yet. I feel that these two albums made me a better and smarter person (than you).

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Best Songwriting July 12 2005
By XraySpex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If your expecting songs like "Whip It" you aren't reading the title. This is a compilation of awesome stripped down songs that contain truly great melodies and socially cutting, humorous lyrics. Songs like "Automodown", "I'm A Potato", "Midget", "Ono", "Stop, Look, And Listen", "Soo Bawlz", "Social Fools", etc... contain the most adventerous, funny music ever produced. I love this album, and would love to hear in a different context if Eno produced it. It would be my favorite album of all time. As it is it is just a lot of fun and a great hidden treasure in an awesome career.

4.0 out of 5 stars Little did I know... April 19 2003
By Lee Rentless - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
at the time of purchasing the two volumes of obscure early-70's 4-track Devo mutations that they would be out of print, highly sought after, and so expensive. I just remember grousing about the exorbitant price at the music store for something there was no way I was walking out of without. Not meaning to gloat (too much), but I'm glad I ponied up.
For the reviewer lamenting his inability to secure a copy of Vol. 1, take heart; you have the better of the two available. That's not to say it isn't something yearn-worthy. It's just that IMHO, vol. 1 = 4 stars, and vol. 2 = 5.
However no Devo fan should be without Auto-Modown/Space Girl Blues, I'm A Potato, and Ono. The whole collection is great, but these three songs are truly the sounds of things falling apart. Both volumes chronicle Devo at their most creative, chaotic, and frightening.

5.0 out of 5 stars EMBRACE THE SNUG PRUD LOAF Nov. 18 1998
By "dsgreen@juno.com" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In spite of what the apparently retarded David Cavanagh thinks of the album (he obviously gets paid per whine), Hardcores I & II dredge the basest instincts and drives from my frustrated intellectual and hormonal adolescence and crams it back into my ear...easily some of their best work, before the Pinks, Grinks, Groinks and Glorps at the record companies made them more palatable to the pond-scum masses...

5.0 out of 5 stars I got a gut feeling Dec 15 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have a hard time finding CD's that I really want to listen to. But this is one. Part of the reason I like it so much is that I like their rawer, earlier CD's much better than their smoother, later ones -- and this of course is their earliest available work. This may sound strange, but to me there's something incredibly good-natured, funny, and unpretentious about Devo. Most of their humor is directed at their own geeky selves. And there's something inexpressibly cool and catching about their quirky instrumentation. My 7-year-old boy and 3-year old girl love Devo (I have to be careful about which tracks they hear) -- it's sophisticated, visceral kid music for kids of all ages.
