Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! Even the title of Devo's debut album shows that this band has a lot of strangeness to unpack. A New Wave quintet from Akron, Ohio, Devo dresses in industrial jumpsuits with goggles and plastic flowerpot helmets on their heads. Stay with me.

The band's main argument and name is based on the idea that human civilization has reached its peak and is actually devolving. I'll let you be the judge of that claim, but I still highly encourage you to check out this incredibly rocking, highly danceable album.

Consider this: Brian Eno, David Bowie and Robert Fripp all wanted to produce this first Devo LP long before they were famous. Strange? Perhaps not as strange as the music, but, if you've seen the band live and at their best, you know they're phenomenal. These are Devo's best songs and a truly ground breaking debut. Don't like "Whip It"? Neither do I. Try "Uncontrollable Urge" or their unbelievable syncopated version of the Rolling Stones "Satisfaction". Their later material is an embarrassment. This LP is a classic.

Impossible for me to rate this as I always kinda disliked Devo. But some of the songs are really great and you can't deny them their historic importance. The live show tacked on to this re-release is interesting, but hardly vital.
