Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy

As always, Was Not Was is technically brisk and funky to the core! You've gotta LOVE the screaming sax! Lyrics (if you happen to listen while emphatically dancing around) are eccentric enough to keep you interested on all listening levels.
Sweet Pea Atkinson's vocals are delivered with all the gusto and energy that WNW fans have been missing during the years between 'Then' and 'Now'.
Of course catching these guys in concert has always been an event, but having this cd keeps the energy pumping long after they've left town.
Thank you, Was Not Was, for this come back. This will definitely keep us happy and bring in new listeners... for now...!"
An excellent return after so much time

"I love these guys. It has been some fifteen years since "Are You Okay" and yet this record is as fresh as if they had been together through all those years. The vocals are as usual, just wonderfully over the top and the subject matter is the same crazy stuff. God how I have missed this. With the single exception of "Needle Tooth", every song on this record is lovingly done and fits in the existing catalog like a glove. Even "Needle Tooth" is part of the tradition but it is hardly musical. Never the less I give this five stars without hesitation. This is record I can actually listen too analog, all the way through. There are very few records that I feel that way about. If you're a fan you won't be disappointed. If you're new to this and you like your funk stirred together with influences form jazz, rock, country and a whole host of musical queues, go for it."

"Though a couple songs are curiosities this album is pure Was (Not Was).
If funky Americana is your thing you'll love this disc."
