Reseña de álbum

A gothic, experimental band that utilized a simple blend of R&B and new wave, Oingo Boingo was quite an innovative force in the eight or so years covered on Best O' Boingo. Few bands can claim such a unique spot in the annals of pop music, but thanks to the visionary songs from lead singer Danny Elfman, Oingo Boingo often transcended the limitations of whatever genre they chose to take on. Picking up after their highly bizarre new wave years, this retrospective emphasizes their poppy, mainstream work, starting with their morbid good-times anthem "Dead Man's Party." Perhaps the best song in their catalog, the track utilizes every likable aspect of their sound, from the intense horn work and start-and-stop rhythms to Elfman's endearingly nasally yelp and impressive compositional skills. Other highlights include the Talking Heads-influenced "Not My Slave," the eerie Eastern-flavored "Sweat," and the campy creep-out anthem "No One Lives Forever." Without access to the material from Boingo's years on A&M Records, the album does feel a bit padded, especially when material from the bland Boi-ngo gets so much play. But with so many great Elfman songs in one place, it's hard to argue with the amount of quality new wave that makes it onto the record. Besides, 1999's Anthology underrated this period in their career, making Best O' Boingo the premiere sampler of their pop-oriented years.

LA's Best Kept Secret of the 80's

Few outside LA has ever heard of the group Oingo Boingo. KROQ listeners were about the only ones. Thanks to the TV genre, many have heard the name Danny Elfman but did not have the opportunity to appreciate his music prose in the band. This very quirky and highly entertaining band is easily summed up in this great collection of fine work. Best O’ Boingo displays the musical mastery of the band and Elfman lyrically displays the angst many teenagers are feeling. That, in itself, is difficult to translate. Many of us will remember the live shows, especially the Halloween party. These are very talented and well trained musicians who put on a fantastic live performance and wrote timely, intricate music and lyrics. You would be hard pressed to find a band that can emulate all of their sounds. Purchase of this collection is a true no-brainer and a must for any Boingo fan. This is great on an iPod while exercising. There you can listen to the many nuances of Oingo Boingo. Miss you people. Curtis Chow, Cottonwood, CA

Absolutely amazing!

If you are new to Oingo Boingo, this album is an excellent place to start. It has a wide variety of music, from the satirical humor of 'Only a Lad' to the soft beauty of 'Stay' and 'Out of Control'. Oingo Boingo's diverse talent and Danny Elfman's fearless vocals are a simply stunning combination. Best O' Boingo is brimming with musical genius, and is completely enthralling from start to finish.


This is one of those albums that makes you feel.. WOW! Elfman reaches his highest potential in this astounding compilation which truly is the BEST of boingo. This album is definately not backround music. None of Oingo Boingo's albums are. You've gotta be in the mood for a rush of an intense crazy feeling. This is definately good stuff! For any boingo fan. (Geddes, if you're out there, Listen to this!!!) Definately my favorite band! Make sure you listen to the songs before purchasing. It's an aquired taste that is worth aquiring!

Although Oingo Boingo was often compared to Devo throughout their career (due to both bands' affinity for quirky new wave, goofy stage acts, and most obviously, peculiar yet intriguing band names), Oingo Boingo never obtained the mainstream success that Devo did. But the band did manage to obtain a large and devoted fan base, especially in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA. Oingo Boingo started not as a traditional group per se, as they were originally put together in the '70s by movie director Richard...
