I'm a B-52's fan, just so you know from the start. This CD is for the collector, or for the fan who just discovered Love Shack and wants to hear more like it. This CD has some of The B's best early songs, along with some of the wacky ones. This is a party album(as every B-52 CD is), and it's highly amusing. Let's see, we have Planet Claire (a classic song, but highly simple.) Lava with nifty guitars, and nicely contrasted voices. Downtown, a funky new wavish version of the original. Strobe Light, a song focusing mainly on having a good time, sure to lighten up a dull atmosphere. Future Generation, a song as interesting as it is true. I can go on, and list the good qualities this CD has, but I think i'll let you buy it yourself, leaving you with this last message-- This CD is a certified "B's" cd, none of their commercial crap.
