Product Description

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! This 1992 album was the follow-up to their hugely-successful Cosmic Thing, which was their last album of the '80s. Moving on with their 'party band' persona (but minus founding member Cindy Wilson), the '90s version of the band was just as fun, catchy and focused as ever. Though down to a trio, there's not a drop in energy or ideas and Good Stuff has plenty of both. How can you resist an album with a song like 'Hot Pants Explosion'? Other highlights include 'Revolution Earth', 'Breezin'' and 'Dreamland'. The B-52s would not release another studio album for 16 years! Warner.

Minus Cindy Wilson this is marginally less cosmic than its multi-platinum predecessor. Still, there's plenty of delicious absurdity ("Is That You Mo-Dean"), Seventies camp ("Hot Pants Explosion"), serious romance ("Revolution Earth") and a tune ("Good Stuff") that frankly celebrates the wild thing. Let's not be stingy: this is great• stuff. --Jeff Bateman

I'm by no means an expert on the musical career of the B-52's; Good Stuff is in fact the only B-52's album I own, but I think it's a great CD. The B-52's are nothing if not quirky, and this special characteristic is front and center on such tracks as Tell It Like It T-I-Is, the wonderfully fun, retro Hot Pants Explosion, and Is That You Mo-Dean? This album looked like it would make a big splash, as the single Good Stuff was quite popular upon its release; for some reason, though, the album just seemed to slip into oblivion after that. It's too bad because there are some surprisingly impressive tracks here: Revolution Earth, for example, is sort of a love song on a cosmic scale that has a soothing quality I can listen to again and again. Vision of a Kiss is another awesome song that I thought had the potential to be a big hit indeed.
There really is an element of the cosmic in B-52's music, one that soothes while it entertains, all the while communicating some serious messages (okay, not in every song, but definitely in some of them) that belie the group's fun-loving musical persona. The World's Green Laughter and Breezin' don't do much for me, but every other song on this album has a contagious quality that almost requires you to sing along and join the fun. Whenever I get this CD out, I end up listening to it over and over again for weeks on end, and it never fails to raise a smile even during the darkest of days. Maybe this isn't the group's best album, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun.

While not as solid from start to finish as its immediate predecessor, "Cosmic Thing", "Good Stuff" is just that -- good stuff, at times even great stuff.
The best songs on here are the first three -- the album just explodes out of the gates (much like Smarty Jones did at the Belmont Stakes, only to fade at the very end). The first three songs are "Tell it Like it T-I-Is", "Hot Pants Explosion" (super fun and very catchy), and "Good Stuff".
The other two songs on here that are very fun are "Is that You Mo-Dean?" and "Bad Influence" (the last song on here and the one that arrests the slide quality-wise of the last half of the album).
I give this album 4 stars because these five songs are 5-star quality, while the remainder of the album is 3-star quality. Therefore, for a casual B-52s fan, this honestly is not a must-own. You could get a couple of the best songs from here on the B-52s Anthology along with some other classics. If you love the B-52s, though, you really ought to get this album to get all five very catchy songs I mentioned above.

Maybe this album not quite the same as "Cosmic Thing" or "Wild Planet" or any of the other B-52's albums but, if you really listen to them each of their albums are rather differant to the other. The production here is, I feel, much better than that on "Cosmic Thing" and the album does really grows on you after repeated listenings. I bought it when it first came out and I was far from disappointed. For me Kate Pierson has always been my favorite member of the group and, with the temporary departure of Cindy Wilson from this album, Kate is given her chance to really shine. Her vocals on "Revolution Earth" are, excuse the pun, out of this world! She brings the song to life in all it's psychadelic glory. It could easily pass for a companion piece to 1989's "Roam" (both songs had the same writers). Kate is also given the chance to show just what she can do on "Vision Of A Kiss". She is not "flat" or "sugary sweet" as other reviewers have stated - she really lets loose and that is pretty much what the B-52's are all about - just let loose and have a great time (and this album will definately help you do it!)

It's been a long time since the B-52's (currently on the county fair circuit) have recorded, and it seems that this will be it. Kate Pierson has to carry the load here, and that's OK, as she really belts it out. There's only a little "good stuff" here, but it's exceptional.
The star of this show is "Revolution Earth", and Kate really hits a spot in your head that tingles, ranging from high notes to growls and singing with authority throughout. It's a great song, their best in my opinion, "fun" songs aside.
Parts of "Mo Dean" also resonant, and you can add "Green Laughter" and "Dreamland" to your playlist, they're pleasant enough.
So, while the group doesn't maintain the consistency of "Cosmic Thing" (which of their other albums did?), and Cindy is missed, "Revolution Earth" is worth every cent. A pity this group didn't fall into that groove earlier, and put the silliness behind them. Kate Pierson is a great vocalist, and there simply aren't enough solid songs that feature her talents; indeed, some of her best work was done in cameos.

Cindy Peterson's departure in no way hurt the Athens, GA group's long-awaited follow-up to their watershed album Cosmic Thing. Unfortunately, it turned out to be their last studio album to date. And while it's not Cosmic, the epithet Good Stuff is too much an understatement. The pro-environmental, positive attitude, quirky subject matter, and clever and offbeat lyrics and music is still dominant here.
"Tell It Like It T-I-Is" shows that Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, and Keith Strickland have not lost their touch. It's one of their environmental songs, as they tell people to maintain the balance of nature, and ask them, "Can you feel the movement/Hear the untamed melody/Tell it like it is and was and.Always should be-yeah!"
"Hot Pants Explosion" is a mischievous jamming dance song about a girl's hot pants, Check out these lyrics: "You burned a hole in my mind/When I saw your cute behind/Wearin' those hot pants." And how's this for a request: "If you would be so kind/Put on those red hot pants and take a stroll through my mind."
The title track is about a guy who's "got sincerity that's bonifide/And a heart so fine it's certified". That's the good stuff referred to. He even tells the girl "The big dipper sure ain't big enough/To hold all of your dang good stuff."
"Is That You Mo-Dean?" is a quirky story about a guy who gets kidnapped by a UFO and is returned to earth 987 years later, by which times all his friends have died.
"The Earth's Green Laughter" is a cool instrumental with jungle sounds, mostly birds, woodpeckers, thunder, native South Americans, and rain falling infused within, and could be another in their pro-environmental songs like "Juicy Jungle." Another wordless wonder in the tradition of "Follow Your Bliss.
