Time Capsule: Songs For A Future Genertion, consists of 18 great songs from the B-52's lineup. The songs fit very well here, but at often times can party you down a little bit. Still, the formula of great dance songs fits well here for newcomers to their music, like myself, and die hard fanatics of the B-52's. There are just so many great dance classics here, including the #1 signature song, Love Shack, as well as Roam, Private Idaho, and the funky Rock Lobster. Arguably, the songs are great, and still beats what is hot on the dance floor today. Still, it is just a shame that people don't respect these songs, and think of them as a guilty pleasure. They're alright to me, but could've offered lyrics to all 18 of these crafted tunes.
Many people don't seem to play the B-52's anymore, and how wild and wacky those songs simply are. Still, it does beat manufactured artists Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez anyday. Get your jukebox money, and buy this album all the way down to the love shack baby!!!
This review is dedicated in loving memory of my relationship with my sister Anna

-More than likely, the only reason you want a B-52's hits compilation is so that you can get Love Shack, Rock Lobster, and/or Roam on CD. And, needless to say, you'll find them all here.
-This compilation doesn't just rely on the hits. You get a number of underrated masterpieces, including Planet Claire off the band's debut album.
-Three unreleased tracks are available here, and only here. Two are entirely new songs, one is an alternate mix of an old favorite.
-THE SONGS ARE IN ORDER OF RELEASE! Failure to do this has ruined many a hits compilation.
-This is the band's best hits compilation, period .(It's a better value than the two-disc anthology, and it covers the band's entire career unlike the Planet Claire compilation, also available here on Amazon.)
-I have only one complaint with this compilation, and it's one I make for just about every hits compilation - The unreleased tracks are just part of a ploy for the band or the record company to pull in extra cash.
If you only get one hits compilation by this band, make extra sure it's this one. These are some of the greatest songs ever released by ANY band, and you're only hurting yourself by not buying this.
