Album Review

This 1992 compilation released on Sire stands as the best introduction to Kid Creole & the Coconuts, a thrilling group that exemplified New York City's diverse cultural mix during the '80s. Kid Creole Redux reaches back to early Ze and Island singles like 1980's "He's Not Such a Bad Boy," 1981's "Going Places," and 1982's "I'm a Wonderful Thing, Baby," and it also includes cuts from the mid-'80s that saw the group reach its highest level of popularity ("My Male Curiosity," "Endicott").

Whatever they were, they cranked out some humorous, rhythmic, vibrant pop music that has had no problem translating to the present.
