Top Customer Reviews
-If you're the very casual Devo fan (like so many of us are), you probably just want to get a Devo album or compilation for Whip It. Needless to say, they didn't forget to put that on here.
-You also get the underrated masterpiece Mongoloid, off of the band's debut album. Would someone mind telling me why this song is so damn underrated?
-This is the only readily available American compilation of Devo material that contains both Mongoloid AND Whip It.
-There are also cover songs. Among these is (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (originally by the Rolling Stones) and Secret Agent Man (originally by Johnny Rivers.)
-The compilation is only about forty-five minutes in length, and a compact disc can carry as much as eighty minutes of material! Why wasn't this filled to the brim?
-It doesn't cover any of the band's later eighties material.
Despite some minor shortcomings, this is a good compilation, and the one that is most readily available in the United States. If you like Devo, even just a little bit, this is a recommended compilation. However, if you can find a compilation that has Whip It and Mongoloid, and considerably more tracks, get THAT one instead.
Forewarned is forearmed.
