CD Reviews

My least favorite OB compilation
Water Monkey | Santa Clarita, Ca. | 10/25/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While I love Oingo Boingo (they have been my favorite band for the last 20 years). This is the CD I listen to the least. Don't get me wrong, on its own it is a great CD, but with all the other OB compilations available this one falls short.Part of the problem was the band was splitting from one record label and moving to another. This CD was put out by the former record label in order to fulfill their contract with OB. Plus for any true OB fan this marks the beginning of the end for the band. After the release of "Skeletons" and "Boingo Alive", Danny Elfman (yes Jenna Elfman's uncle) concentrated on his music scores more than he did on the band. Thus releasing fewer new recordings.If you are an avid OB fan and must have everything they own, get this CD. If this was going to be your first OB CD, get their "Anthology" CD. It is more complete."
Great Introduction

"This is the first Boingo CD I ever heard, and I can't wait to get more! (Of course, in Canada, Boingo CDs must be special imported from the US, making them hard to find.) This is a truly brilliant album, with great sweeping lyrics, pulse-pounding music, and a true sense of genuis. Elfman rules!"
Best of the best

"This particular release is amazing! There is not one bad song throughout the entire cd. It is one of those albums that you can listen to over and over again and never get tired of that's what I call a great record.

For those of you who have never heard of Oingo Boingo, I would say they are a band that makes music that is almost impossible to describe. Their music is truly unique and is completely different from anything you've ever heard. Although there are a lot of bands that have their own sound, Oingo Boingo adds to their sound diversity by including the use of wind instruments. So I'll make an attempt and say Oingo Boingo is punk meets pop meets new wave meets brass meets weird, and that's about as close as I can get. So give them a listen, you won't be dissapointed."
