Everything you read and heard about it is TRUE

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I owned the original US WB pressing of the LP, then the "Collectibles" CD version, which I thought was crap. Today I received in the mail this remastered version of the album, and though it sounds better - more solid volume, sound, it seems the remastering emphasized too much the lows - so that the CD "thumps" a lot even at a flat bass and treble setting, and the high midranges and highs appear muffled. Originally I believed it was intentional or due to the poor quality of the LP mastering, but apparently what I've read here about the master tapes being damaged may very well be true. If so, it may indeed be a pity and may explain why the price of the CD - "new" has fallen below eight dollars. it is also a shame because WB could well have requested the original recording engineers to cook up another master tape from the original multi=track recordings. Clearly Devo has not been treated by the label with the seriousness and respect they afford Los Lobos song-stealer Paul Simon. I give this release 4 stars for the sound quality, 5 for the music."
A clearer gem from the past....

"The sound on this under rated Devo classic has been cleaned up considerably bringing it out of the muffled fog it was originally in. The clarity is much noticed on "Through Being Cool"

I like the extra tracks. They might be found on other Devo releases, but I don't mind them here. I like them especially "One Dumb Thing" which, from what I understand, eventually was rewritten as "PATTERNS" on "Oh, No! It's Devo!" It's neat hearing how a song was...then eventually ended up as. I do miss "Working In A Coal Mine" on this release even though it's not one of my favorite Devo songs.

The mark on the front "Parental Advisory Explicit Content" I feel was placed there for a marketing ploy. Anyone who is familiar with the original release knows there is nothing more than Benny Hill naughty boy type humor here as in "Soft Things". But possibly, if a consumer had not heard the extras before might think they are something REALLY naughty included there.

Over all, great price, great cd, great bonus tracks, GREAT DEVO RELEASE!
