Customer Reviews

Still good, twenty years later.

As being born a 90's kid, I didn't hear the b 52's when they first came out. However, I grew up listening to them because of my mom and her generation. Can't say I'm mad she did it, this album is amazing. All of their albums are purely genius music. I know pretty much all the songs, thanks mom, and it's a shame the music today isn't as good.

Yes, this is the one. It is thee defining B-52's album, I believe moreso than the debut album. Top to bottom, great songs. This is one of the definitive new wave 80's albums. It belongs in the time capsule, it is just that good. Danceability? off the charts! Quirky, creative, hilarious, rockin' lyrics. Devil in my Car is one of their most underrated songs. Quiche Lorraine is deliciously cool. Get this album, party out of bounds and then do what Fred tells you to do underneath a strobe light. You won't regret it.

The first of many acts to cement the college town of Athens, GA, as a hotbed of alternative music, the B-52's took their name from the Southern slang for the mile-high bouffant wigs sported by singers Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson, a look emblematic of the band's campy, thrift-store aesthetic. The five-piece group, which also included founding members Fred Schneider, guitarist Ricky Wilson (Cindy's older brother), and drummer Keith Strickland, formed in the mid-'70s after a drunken evening at a Chinese...
