A small tangent from oingo boingo
M. Tefer | MN, United States | 11/16/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"After 1983's Good For Your Soul, Danny Elfman found time to record So-Lo in 1984. It's an interesting deviation from Oingo Boingo's exotic style, but not a long shot from it. The hooks on So-Lo are relatively simple and contain much more treble and sometimes ambient (Go Away) sound than anything by Boingo.
Everybody Needs and Cool City are among of the albums finer points. This album is only Danny Elfman in name, since OB is completely present here. Undeservedly panned by Critics, So-Lo will mostly strike a chord with hard corps Boingo fans / New Wave fans.
This Is Boingo NOT A Soundtrack
The Orange Duke | Cupertino, Ca United States | 12/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Oingo Boingo fans take note; this is really a lost Oingo Boingo album, and an excellent one. This is not Danny's classical style soundtrack stuff; here he sounds just like when with Boingo, dark, punchy and rhythmic. This is Goth music to a rocking dance beat. Elfman was once a true original; there never has been another band like Boingo, then or now. If you like your music lively and your lyrics wry and twisted just push that buy button, you will not be disappointed. All tracks are excellent, especially `Gratitude', `Cool City' and `Sucker For Mystery'."
If it's your kind of music, you'll love it.

"This album is perhaps a more concentrated dose of the Oingo Boingo sound than any other I can think of - it's, for lack of a better word, weirder than most of their albums... which is not to say that Oingo Boingo usually sound "normal", but just to say that people who don't like Oingo Boingo REALLY don't like this album. People who are into that catchy, frenetic kind of edgy 80s pop (myself included), on the other hand, will absolutely adore this album. It's an incredible piece of work, with no particularly weak tracks and several standouts. I only refrain from giving it 5 stars because that perfect rating is deserved ever so slightly more by other albums in the Boingo canon such as the eponymous Boingo or Dead Man's Party."
