Did you love Only a Lad?, did it rattle your bones and make you feel...queer? If you felt at all attracted to the quirkiness and incredibly witty lyricism, if you quite liked the hyperactive and somewhat disturbed voice of manic front man Danny Elfman then you, yes YOU! will devour this OTHER Boingo delicacy most ravenously!

Oingo Boingo's best, and a best of the '80s 11 Jan. 2006
By Kid A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For a short time in the early '80s, Oingo Boingo was right up there with the premier bands of the time. Their infectious grooves, incredible soundscapes and Danny Elfman's wacky vocal stylings dripped with their unique blend of genres infused with a bit of something nobody will ever be able to put their finger on much less duplicate. There just aren't that many bands that can inject so many different sounds into their music without it becoming bloated. With Oingo Boingo, though, every sound has its place and none detract from the overall feel of the music.

If you think you've heard Oingo Boingo but you've never heard this album (or Good For Your Soul), you really haven't heard Oingo Boingo. If you know nothing about Oingo Boingo, start here. This is by and far the best album to start with to get the Oingo Boingo firehose pointed in your face. Good For Your Soul (their next release) is also extremely good, though.

Nothing To Fear is quite possibly one of the best releases of any bands in the 1980s. There just isn't a weak song here. Give it a critical listen. Give it several listens, because it'll be a long time before you get to the point where you listen to it and *don't* hear something you never heard before. It's the gift that keeps on giving; an all-time classic!

An 80's masterpiece! 4 Dec. 2004
By Christopher Priebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is incredible from start to finish. Musically and lyrically amazingly ahead of it's time(1982), this album encompasses every crazy emotion that could only be conjured up by one Danny Elfman. The musicianship is top notch. This album grabs you and does'nt let go until the final song is over.It's dancy and funky style of pop-rock is unparalleled. Forget buying a best-of, go out and get this first. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Then go and buy(in my order) "Good For Your Soul", "Dead Man's Party", "Only A Lad" and whatever else you come across. Easily a fave of mine in my 3,000 c.d. collection. My ONLY regret was not seeing them live!

It grows on you, like festering mold. 12 Aug. 2000
By Areia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album has three of Boingo's best songs, "Insects", "Private Life" and "Islands," and for those three alone it should be worshipped. There's a little less of the Mystic Knights here than on Only a Lad (the nods to music from the past are less frequent), but it's nearly as addictive and actually touching at times. ("Islands" is such a sad and personal song for early Boingo!) You gotta get it.

Sarcasm and Wild Sex? 14 Oct. 2005
By A. F. Rigum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm afraid so - and it's great fun. However, Elfman becomes slightly overexcited to tear down politics and religion, and it comes out just a little forced when you first listen. But I love it all, so, I don't think I really condone that last statement.

Track 1 "Grey Matter" is a great stepping stone from the first Boingo album "Only a Lad" and decidedly one of the best Boingo songs. And one of the most true to life. In fact, I would say I knew the person Danny Elfman wrote this about if she (or he) hadn't been born five or so years after it was released.

Track 3 "Private Life" is definitely one of the best of Boingo. Musically quite solid, and the style and sound feels very unique. Not to mention the fairly simple universality of the lyrics.

And Track 4 "Wild Sex (in the Working Class)" is possibly my favorite Boingo song. If you really pay attention to Elfman's lyrical style, you will realize that sex is not really the point, although in many of his other songs it is only as basic as that. It resonates with the familiarity of "Private Life" and yet maintains a distance for those who are too shallow to look deeper than the beat and the chorus.

And Track 7 "Nothing to Fear (but Fear Itself)" should be just pure entertainment anyone who likes Boingo. But it is one of Danny Elfman's proselyting songs, so humor him for being opinionated, please. Unless you agree... Then just enjoy it, I guess.

Second Album Phenomenon 19 Sept. 2001
By R. Toomey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In my opinion, Danny Elfman ranks up there on my list of the greatest rock songwriters of all time. I'll even go as far as calling him a genius in many ways. This album, their second, is truly amazing. Packed with great songs such as "Grey Matter", "Private Life", "Nothing To Fear", "Whole Day Off", "Wild Sex" and my favorite Oingo Boingo song of all time "Reptiles and Samurai". Everytime I listen to this I vision a party. It's great party music and Oingo Boingo definitely ranks up there with the greatest party bands. This one will not disappoint you.
