This disc comprises of Devos 2nd and 4th release on one disc with a few (i think) single only tracks.

This cd is the best of this set from Virgin Records, it has two great albums instead of a great album and an okay but not vital release (like the live ep and the album Oh No It's Devo).

The packaging is just plain bad, it has none of the charisma of the original releases and on a few songs even spells tracks wrong!

If you get all 3 of these releases you get 6 albums, and thats great for the price, but if you can, get either the original vinyls or more devo-ted re-releases. This simply feels like a way for Virgin to cash in on them which is sad.

Worth getting for the music alone, but the packaging is worth only one star out of five.

Many years after the event I feel it's now my duty to report that I spoke to the members of Devo after a gig in the 80s and was delighted to discover that my favourite album of theirs is also their favourite album: Duty Now for the Future! It's a contentious point because the first album was such an amazing debut, but the production on the second album is just so much better.

Although Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA has always been my favourite track, you also have S.I.B. (which also has a tremendous version on the Dev-O Live album), Pink Pussycat, Secret Agent Man, The Day My Baby Gave Me a Surprise, Blockhead, Strange Pursuit - all strong numbers in my opinion! The album has a highly unified feel to it, a very strong identity. I bought it on vinyl when it was released and it gave me a surprise, a new sound. The band were obviously very proud of what they achieved with this album, too. They felt that the people who engineered the sound on this album produced the sound and the effect they were looking for, and I knew what they meant when they said it.

'Duty Now for the Future/New Traditionalists' is probably the least attractive of the three Virgin Records double LP Devo CDs released in the early 90s. It is hardly the fault of the material, 'Duty Now For the Future' (1979) was a fine follow up to 'Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!' but the songs weren't as memorable. 'New Traditionalists' (1981) was their follow up to the stateside hit album 'Freedom of Choice'. It too is a weaker album than its predecessor. Devo seemed to lose momentum after 'Freedom of Choice', they were still recording brilliant singles, but on each album the number of weak and novelty songs began to cloud the albums.

An overall criticism of the trilogy of Virgin releases is the pairing of albums. Sonically 'Duty Now For the Future' should have been paired with 'Are We Not Men', 'New Traditionalists with 'Oh, No! It's Devo' and 'Freedom of Choice' with the 'Devo Live EP'. This is only a minor quibble as the value for money ratio cancels out issues of ordering and the albums cheapo packaging. One other set back is that the two albums are presented with less bonus tracks than the other pair. Only (the admittedly smashing) `Working in a Coalmine' appears additionally.

The individual albums are full of quality moments. The out and out highlight of 'Duty' is the six-minute 'Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA'. As the title suggests it is a two part song, first half has a military stomp in which vocals and instrumentation becomes more vitriolic. The second half turns punky and shouty but the synthesizers remain pronounced but as a gurgling bassline. The singles 'Secret Agent Man' and 'The Day My Baby Gave Me a Surprize' are strong but hardly as iconic as 'Jocko Homo' and 'Mongoloid'. Other bright moments include the dark electronic workout 'S.I.

Great to get this on CD as have some of the single releases from both albums back in 79 -81. When I was a big Devo fan and indeed still am. While not as obvious as the fantastic Freedom of Choice album these still merit 5 stars mainly on the strength of New Traditionalists. Duty Now..starts with an instrumental into which sounds like a Synthetic version of a Tudor orchestra in the court of Henry VIII! Before moving onto the rather chaotic and forgetable first track 'Clockout'.
More interesting Electronic experimentation follows on track 3. Next comes 'Wiggly world' fairly typical of the wacky New wave tracks these guys excel in , but a big improvement over track 2 never the less. This album picks up further with the 'Blockhead' with distorted guitars ,Mark M's often manic vocals and a strong synth riff throughout. Some interesting vocals but not sure if they were singing about anyone or particular. Next track is the absolutely brilliant 'Strange Persuit' which is more inovative ,featuring a superb electronic bass line and crazed vocals with some use of vocoder in the chorus. The arrangements are inovative, which I had only heard on Ultravox in New wave at the time in the UK let alone the USA. Devo continue the Electronic experimentation with ' Swelling Itchy Brain' slighly loopy vocals by MM but a great sound non the less. 'Triumph of the Will' Is a bit Bizzare with a change in vocals (GK) sounds as if it would be at home in Americ Pie with its Sexual referene and High School humour!! Next is the best track on the Album ' The Day my Baby gave me a suprise, Got this on 7 inch in 1979. Devo at their best with Fuzzy guitar and Synths. With its classic Whaahoo vocal chorus .Love it now as much I did back then!!
