A Brainy Bye Bye
Tim Brough | Springfield, PA United States | 03/02/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"DEVO had one more album in them before Mark Mothersbaugh decided there was more to be done scoring "Rugrats" cartoons, Disney cable shows and movie soundtrack work. "Smooth Noodle Maps" (the title refers to the patterns on the surface of a human brain) plays to all the strengths of their "Freedom Of Choice" salad days. The guitars are back among the electronics, and the compositions are hooky and dance floor smart. The one-two punch of "Stuck In A Loop Again" and "Post Post Modern Man" reinvigorate the theory of de-evolution in a powerful fashion, with a great deal of zip. They even throw in a DEVO-esque cover of the ancient "Morning Dew" (probably best known as a Grateful Dead favorite) to prove they still have what it takes to twist an oldie. They may have lost most of their sense of societal irony, but with the nasty "Jimmy" and the burned out relationship blues of "Dawghaus," DEVO at least could claim they closed up shop with a solid recording.

"Great CD, Wish I had the LP. Mastered a bit too loud however, had to turn it way down compared to most other CDs. Wonder Why? New CD from them in the Fall, can't wait!"
