I sometimes wonder all the way about party bands, and the organic vibes they've conjured up. It all just seems to be exactly the same thing to me. Particualrly today, it all just seems to be so overmanufactured and overproduced, you can't seem to tell what is actually real and what isn't real. Still, there is no party band in my mind that seems to show it more than the B-52's. Although they've seen some highs and lows in their lives, they honestly can make the right kind of tunes to get up and dance to. Fred, Kate and company definitely are the party animals here.
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!!!
