This is so damn depressing, to even think about this album makes me sad. Devo were one of the great 70s bands (yes I'm counting their early college recordings as 72-80 was when Devo were at their prime), pioneers along with The Ramones. In the 80s they got worse with each album, each one being more dull than the last, yes I got it but I didn't really care and no one else did by the time this one came out. Devo were getting no respect from their record company being treated like garbage. The music channels threw their videos off this album back at them (Devo was the only "different" band that ever got constant airplay, more than the awesome Ween could ever hope for) and they got no airplay, the band must have been suicidal. Devo died with a tiny pathetic beep.

This is truly a great final new works album, with a message and musical execution as fine as any early mutant masterpiece. I can't understand why "Devo Has Feelings Too" isn't listed on every Devo post post-band greatest hits album. As a whole, it rocks and hits the conceptual nail right square on the head.

Unless you are a true Devo fan, don't go out of your way for this one. The music is so - so and because of marketing of this album
on the Enigma Label it is a hard one to find.

A Brainy Bye Bye March 1 2005
By Tim Brough - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
DEVO had one more album in them before Mark Mothersbaugh decided there was more to be done scoring "Rugrats" cartoons, Disney cable shows and movie soundtrack work. "Smooth Noodle Maps" (the title refers to the patterns on the surface of a human brain) plays to all the strengths of their "Freedom Of Choice" salad days. The guitars are back among the electronics, and the compositions are hooky and dance floor smart. The one-two punch of "Stuck In A Loop Again" and "Post Post Modern Man" reinvigorate the theory of de-evolution in a powerful fashion, with a great deal of zip. They even throw in a DEVO-esque cover of the ancient "Morning Dew" (probably best known as a Grateful Dead favorite) to prove they still have what it takes to twist an oldie. They may have lost most of their sense of societal irony, but with the nasty "Jimmy" and the burned out relationship blues of "Dawghaus," DEVO at least could claim they closed up shop with a solid recording.

To all the Jonee cum lately spuds... Jan. 13 2006
By Harper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album was the perfect way for them to call it a day. Only a prententious artsy-late-on-the-bandwagon newb would not at least enjoy this album if not downright love it.

I've been a spudfan since before there was an MTV, and even before *shudder* there was any Freedom of Choice.

The only thing Devo can be said to be guilty of is in miscalculating just how fast the music industry would go straight to hell.

Listen to anything by most current "artists" and you'll probably agree with me.

Unlike the crappers/boybands/tramped out gansta chicks etc who've been out there for the last few years, DEVO never took themselves at all seriously.

There's something to be said for that...

A refreshing, unpretentious slice of spud. Sept. 18 1999
By vfr7504me@aol.com troy "devo88" doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album the week it came out. After Total Devo, this was a step forward. Definately a must have, and one of Devo's last studio albums.

Great, but overlooked Feb. 23 2000
By David Greenwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the only Devo album I have yet heard, but it is incredible. There are no bad songs, and aside from the Big Picture (which is merely ok), they're all great. Morning Dew is amazing. Smooth Noodle Maps is very pop and accessible, but still edgy and weird enough to be interesting. Get this one now, you won't be sorry.
