I just got the new CD today called "DEVO Something for Everybody".

In a word..........

AWESOME! ;D

Very loud, high N-R-G dance music, very heavy!

Unusually great lyrics!

Exceptional vocals.

Fantastic low end for sub-woofers! ;D

There is nothing minimalist about this recording. It is very thick, super produced, lots of effects and unbelievable synth sounds. There are some hints of sounds and note lines from some of their previous masterpieces.

I was blown away to hear acoustic piano in "No Place Like Home". Now that's taking it to the next level!

This is absolutely an instant classic that fits right in their with their first 5 releases.

Now I can't wait for the live show!

Looks like they will be close to Ohio in the first week of July!

I wish they would play The Akron Civic Theater!

They could sell it out 3 or 4 nights in a row, no problems.

James.  :)

It really is a fun album.  So glad DEVO is back and also that the new album is so good.  It's been a few years since I've seen them perform.  The last time I did see them was as the Concourse in San Francisco at the ZDTV opening party. (Was this 10 years ago?)  I was the laserist at that event and I didn't even know they were playing.  Yes, I got to throw lasers for DEVO.  On a side note, this was also the first time I saw the Blue Man Group.  The Blue Men brought a giant jello mold to the stage and dug the ZDTV logo from inside the jello.  I didn't find out who those wierd blue guys were until several years later.

For those of you who don't know Uncontrollable Urge  is from their first album.

Thanks!

Now all I need is one more decent photo of the fifth guy with an energy dome, looking like he's dancing and playing a keyboard. Then I'll have all five!

Suggestions are welcome!
