3.0 out of 5 stars Devo's best?? Maybe Aug. 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
Let me qualify this review by stating that I am not now, nor have I ever been, and I hope I never will be a Devo 'fan'. But I have heard all of their albums, at least from the first up to "Smooth Noodle Maps", and I have certainly found tracks of interest scattered haphazardly throughout their recordings- most of which I find mildly annoying at best. But this album always seemed to stand out from all others. "Total Devo" is different. Instead of emotionless robotic vocals and bland early electronica, this album actually is overflowing with emotion amidst the bland early electronica (although it must be said that this came out in '88; electronica had long since passed it's early Gary Numan era and advanced, while noone apparently told Devo). From what I can gather, it appears that Mothersbaugh had weathered an extremely bad relationship prior to or during this album, and while that is a sad thing, it helped Devo's music. To me, at least; I can actually feel something other than comatose while hearing "Total Devo". Still, this is by no means a classic, must-buy cd. I don't even play it more than once in a blue moon or else whenever a friend discusses Devo. But it's the only Devo cd I personally own, and it's the only Devo cd I would recommend to anyone. "Smooth Noodle Maps" is also acceptable, to a lesser degree...maybe in their final years Devo attempted maturity. I don't know, really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look! They Changed Their Clothes! Nov. 17 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album marks a drastic change in Devo's previous sound. Gone are the bouncy, immature, ironic humor laced lyrics of the albums before it. They are now replaced by more mashed up love lyrics. Devo sounds like they matured on this one.
Low points: Most of the songs are just not so memorable. Most of it is bland synth-pop.
High points: Baby Doll! Very catchy and a Swedish version was featured on the movie Tapeheads. Disco Dancer is a really energetic tune, especially the included 12" remix by Ivan Ivan. Some Things Never Change is a classic song of the Devo view on the fallability of the human race.
This isn't a terrible album, but it's certainly not Devo's best. If you are looking for the more techno oriented Devo, try Smooth Noodle Maps. I recommend Are We Not Men? We are Devo!, Freedom of Choice, and New Traditionalists as better albums to start with.
A note about the album art: They are posing naked on the back cover! I hear it's a parody of a Prince album. The front cover has a poorly pasted chin on David Kendrick's face. It's like sliding down his jaw! What happened was that Bob2's shirt was covering David's chin during the photo shoot. They didn't feel like posing for the same photo again, so they did a little last-minute "plastic surgery" on Kendrick.
Some things never change.

4.0 out of 5 stars PREACHIN' FROM GUYS WHO AIN'T GOOD AT PREACHIN' April 26 1999
Format:Audio CD
This was the album that first started shaking my set-in-stone, leg-humping love for the Boys From Akron. Overall it's quite good; however, some of the songs on the album were borderline _preachy_...dig it! Instead of gnawing-at-your-throat lyrics that if you were so stupid that you didn't understand them you were probably the target of them, the listener is presented with songs that are _blatantly _preachy_, with all the _blatant_ social commentary of a Monkees' song. However, this is still a pretty good album, and well worth obtaining, especially for the loverly cover of "Don't Be Cruel"....
