The follow up to the phenomenally successful debut album was an even better effort from the B-52s released in the fall of 1980. Though it lacked a breakout blockbuster song like "Rock Lobster", their second LP was more solid and consistent and contained no "throw-away" tracks like "Downtown".

"Party Out of Bounds" opens with the sound of breaking glass and lets us know the B's are back in town and ready to party. Kate hoots her way through the track while Cindy asks "Where's the punch?" with just the right amount of blase in her tone, and Fred explains the chaos that happens when party crashers descend upon your house.

"Dirty Back Road" is a rather low-key change-of-pace offering and is surprisingly my favorite track on the whole album. Kate and Cindy's vocals blend perfectly together like milk and honey while the cleverly suggestive lyrics seem to refer to "back-door" sex.

"Running Around" features amazing guitar work from the late Ricky Wilson and is the kind of retro-pop '60s music that seems to have inspired the Austin Powers franchise, et al.

"Give Me Back My Man" has Cindy on lead with a slightly ominous bassline and ends with her anguished wails accompanied by hypnotic chimes.

"Private Idaho" kicks off what was Side 2 in the old days of vinyl and is probably the second best track. From Kate's hooty opening to the Twilight-Zone inspired riff right before the chorus, to Ricky's surf-rock guitar licks right after, Keith's machine-gun drumming and Cindy's "I-I-I-da-ho", this song's a winner and will stay in your head for days.

"Devil In My Car" is another rowdy number but not one of my favorites.

"Quiche Lorraine" is Fred's hilarious mid-tempo tale of a fickle poodle who deserts it's owner for a Great Dane.

If you were stuck on a desert island you want to make sure you bring this CD. Just about every song here makes you wanna dance. Some great memories with the B's. Truly one of the cornerstone bands of the New Wave era with a style that will never be duplicated. A must have for any 80's or even punk fan. Strobe light is one of my favs. 5 stars! Go get it!

Lots of bands suffer from the legendary "sophomore slump." The B-52's were no exception: WILD PLANET seems quite tame in comparison to their legendary, self-titled debut. Even so, the release offers several truly memorable B-52's classics--you'll just have to work a bit harder to get at them.
The big number here is "Private Idaho," and it stands alongside the absolute best of the band, a sharp and crackly piece with sardonic lyrics, a driving tempo, and a wicked sense of humor. "Party Out of Bounds" and "Devil in My Car" aren't quite in the same league, but they're still good enough to spin your head around. But the rest of the selections don't quite manage to cross the line into manic B-52's country.
"Dirty Back Road" and "Runnin' Around" are well done but not actually very memorable--and indeed, as I sit here fresh from the recordings I can barely call either of them to mind. "Give Me Back My Man," "Strobe Light," and "53 Miles West of Venus" seem to be slightly lesser reincarnations of cuts from the debut album, and while the notorious "Quiche Lorraine" starts well it overplays into pure silliness without ever finding the cutting quality for which The B-52's were and are so famous.
Listening to WILD PLANET today, it seems to me that the problem was less with the band than it was with management. The debut album got lots of critical attention and became a cult-smash, but then as now it proved too edgy for the sort of airplay that translated into big bucks with the buying public. I can almost hear the money men saying "Oh, that's fine--but if you'd only just...

I loved the first B-52's album for its wackiness and great beats. This second outing has some great material (Party Out of Bounds, Private Idaho, and possibly Give Me Back My Man) but the rest of the songs are much weaker: You can't listen to Quiche Lorraine too many times before it wears out and other tracks sound out of energy.

The dog runs away after a German Shepherd, leaving the man broken-hearted and vindictive for being abandoned
I started with this, for it is mentioned in an earlier review. I fealt a need to correct it. It's actually a Great Dane, not a German Shepherd... from the song "Quiche Lorraine." It goes "Oh no, here comes a Great Dane, trotting down the lane...etc." Anyhow, other than that, mostly what has been written about how great the album is, I agree with. I was 10 when they first came out with their debut, and I bought all their albums through the release of "Whammy." Soon after that, I became enthralled with Metal, but B-52s and Devo have always been enjoyable for me. To be honest, I wasn't too much into "Love Shack," however. This (Wild Planet) album is, I believe, every bit as good as their first.

Does it get any better than the The B-52s' 1980 follow up of their classic debut? ... From the frantic opening track, PARTY OUT OF BOUNDS, to the trance inducing closer, 53 MILES WEST OF VENUS, WILD PLANET is one party that just doesn't quit. The band comes up aces on this one by deftly blending rock, disco, new-wave and punk into their own unique high octane cocktail.
Gems are truly across the board on this outing. DIRTY BACK ROAD is a perfect ditty that features a Kate and Cindy harmony in front of a snaky rythmn courtesy of Ricky Wilson's genius guitar and Keith Strickland's rock steady beat. RUNNIN' AROUND has all the urgency and drama that only frontman Fred Schnieder can serve up and gives the tune a raw punky feel to it. Other highlights are the hilarious ...STROBELIGHT and the Twilight Zone borrowed, forever hip, PRIVATE IDAHO.
One of the biggest gems among all these diamonds, however, is the Cindy Wilson showcase, GIVE ME BACK MY MAN. On this track the band truly shines. Cindy's vocals run an admirably wide gamut between seduction and desperation while Kate Pierson's keyboard bass solidly anchors a tune that could only be described as a ballad from Neptune.
So do yourself a favor and hijack a rocketship and get to WILD PLANET. It's the best party you've never been to.
