New decade, new DEVO,
This review is from: Freedom of Choice (Audio CD)
This is the album that secured DEVO's place in mainstream US culture in the 1980s. Their 'energy dome' headgear has been an enduring image of the decade and remains part of their regular stage costumes to the present day. The single - Whip It is easily their most famous song in America (not so much here in the UK) and along with it's accompanying video, is what most people associate with DEVO. The rest of the album is solid and contains many other new wave favourites such as Girl U Want and the awesome title track. The sound is slightly more commercial than previous albums and it's considerably more upbeat than the dark Duty Now For The Future. A great place to start.
