CD Reviews

Classic Oingo Boingo
Water Monkey | Santa Clarita, Ca. | 10/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the hallmark albums of the "New Wave" era. With this recording OB jumped onto the music scene with a mix of upbeat high energy ska-punk music and brooding lyrics about middle class S. California life.This is one of my favorite OB recordings. This CD marked the beginning of Danny Elfman's best writing.If you want to know what true OB sounds like, this is one of the albums to own (along with "Nothing To Fear" and "Good for Your Soul")."
Areia | WCFM | 08/12/2000

"You will listen to Only a Lad. You will not stop. You will learn to appreciate every song on here, even the ones (or perhaps especially the ones, depending on your tendencies) dripping with libertarian sympathies. You will admit that Danny Elfman is an evil mastermind and trust him when he says "Put your life into my hands/Look around you'll understand". You will like all of the other Boingo albums very much, you will appreciate Danny's soundtracks, but they will never match the hyperkinetic joy of Only a Lad. Submit."
Spectacular Boingo
Sean O'Neill | Seattle, WA USA | 03/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album captures the early sound of Oingo Boingo, with all of their quirkiness and unusual instruments. You get some top hits like, 'Only a Lad' and 'Little Girls', but they also have some great grooves like, 'Perfect System' and 'On the Outside'. The lyrics on 'Capitalism' are spectacular as well.You may know Danny Elfman from his movie scores, but this is where it all started. Oingo's greatest hits contains some of these songs, but this album is still worth owning for the lesser-known gems."
