Content includes the 12 tracks from original album plus 6 live bonus tracks, all on one disc. With Freedom of Choice, Devo completed their transition into a full-fledged synth-pop group, producing a musically cohesive album spawning hits like the breakthrough hit 'Whip It,' 'Girl U Want,' and 'Gates Of Steel.' Synthesizers were fully integrated into the band's sound, frequently dominating the arrangements sharing equal time with the guitars. Everything is played with a cool, polished precision that mirrors the stylized uniformity of the band's visuals; the dissonance is more subdued than in the past, and the rhythms lock the band into a rigidly even keel.

Where are the b-sides?

"Again, I own several copies of this album - WB CD, Virgin CD with 'Oh No...' and LP. It's the one where start getting more rigid in their songwriting but nevertheless produce plenty of intelligent and original songs from their world view. Plus it has their most popular songs, "Whip It" (which despite it's status as a novelty hit is a really great song), "Girl U Want", "Freedom of Choice" and "Gates of Steel." However, while it's neat seeing the entire track listing of the 'Devo Live' 12" EP as bonus tracks, it's missing the b sides! What kind of CD reissue excludes single b sides? Where's "Turnaround", the b-side to "Freedom of Choice" single (I think?) or "Snowball" (dance revolution)? Why would I need this reissue, it seems useless to me."
