First off I should state that this is my favourite DEVO album. From the first pulses of Time Out For Fun to the final note of the super closer Deep Sleep, this is all killer, no filler. The transistion to fully-fledged synthpop was complete with the herky jerky guitar sound of Q: Are We Not Men?... long-gone, which may put some fans off. As revealed in recent interviews, DEVO created this work as a reaction to two different Rolling Stone magazine articles, one describing the group as "fascist" and the other - "clowns". With it's juxtaposition of wacky humour and creepiness, this 'fascist clowns' aesthetic is clear throughout, from the manic laughs of Peek-A-Boo to the controversial use of lyrics by aspirant presidental assasin John Hinckley Jr. in I Desire. This is DEVO at their '80s best.

To me, this is the Devo equivilant of Tromp Le Monde. Listened to it once and shelved it. Nothing like Are We Not Men?
However, i must report that giving it a fair chance has turned out to be a DE-eply rewarding experience. There isn't a dud on it. No Praying Hands, no Its Not Right. Even the idiosyncratic Speed Racer with its cartoon voices is insanely catchy. And the good songs are VERY good: Out of Sync, Patterns and Big Mess, every one a winner. But the best song has to be I Desire. I swear, if I Desire had been released by Human League it would have gone top 10. Is that damning with faint praise?
Oh No.. is very much like Devo themselves. A hard sell to start with, but once you accept the rules of their world there's no going back.

Love DEVO? Love 80's Future Electro Pop? Love Great Songs?
Buy this CD!

I hadn't played my vinyl version for Years and awaited it's CD arrival with Utter Glee and High Expectations!
It didn't disappoint.
I waited for a weak track to come and there were None.
An album full of Great Devo Songs, some of which would be great covered!

Sounds great too up against the rather Excellent New DEVO album, which i trust you all now own!? (but please, not on MP3, get the Real Product!)

The production on "Oh, No It's..." still sounds rounded and Full. Great Synths. Squelchy!
One intro even gave me a flashback to an underground RAVE from back in '89.
Which is cool considering this album came out in '82.
And there's a moment of Men Without Hats in there, which is also cool coz they were a great band too!
Some fave songs: the slinky "I Desire". The brilliant "Speed Racer". and of course "Time Out For Fun".
They should manga animate the whole album and re-release it!

A Fun Joyous Spud-tastic Essential album to add to your DEVO collection.

Everyone interested in 80's Synth-Pop knows this album. Nothing more to say. One of the best in this decade and a must have for every collection.

But: If you want this gem in best sound-quality available, go for the 2008-Papersleeve-Version (J-Import, Warner WPCR-12952), which is a new remaster by Isao Kikuchi.
Much better than the 1995-Version (remastered by Bill Inglot + Ken Perry).
