"The Voice of the Beehive was hip during the late 80's and this album was why! Walking through a record store when I was 21 this music caught my attention as being different as it was played inside the store as a new release. The record store owner said "we haven't really sold that many and I have no idea why". I bought it and listened to it and it is legendary and fun to listen to. I don't know why it wasn't played more either, but a friend said that a couple cuss words on this album turned off the radio land on them. The content is easy to be "catchy" and easy to sing along to. Once you hear any song on this album you will know their sound and their beat. I have read other reviews which state this is a womans' album but I can say that men love it also. Very much like a "bangles" sound, but has more sing along songs and party type songs than any bangles album. Most albums have 3 or 4 good songs and then you skip through the rest. This is different and you will want to hear them all over and over again. Take a drive along the "scenic highways" of america and crank up the Beehive and you will become a BEE-liever too. They are catchy and unfortunately hard to find. By the way does anyone know where they are from and where they are now? I have over 200 albums in my collection and this is by far my favorite and the most played!! You won't regret adding this to your dj collection."

"Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! I originally picked this album up in the 80s and fell in love with it from the start. One of those few albums you can really enjoy from begining to end. I still have fond memories of driving down to the beach with friends listening to the Beehive!"
"I Say Nothing" is worth the CD price, all by itself.

"I remember hearing "I Say Nothing" on the car radio FM (out of Baja) when I was stationed up at Camp Pendleton, and the choruses/refrains hooked me instantly. It's one of those tracks on which a band does almost everything just right. I've since made it a point to hear most everything else that VoB has done, and "I Say Nothing" has a rare pop magic that you see (or rather hear) once in a blue moon. I would have paid $10 for a CD single of that tune."
The coolest thing about them is their name.

"This group is really cool. They have a cool name, their songs are cool, and their lyrics are also really cool. Actually, their lyrics are great. I guess they remind me of the B-52's, but rather than do them the injustice of classifying them I'll just praise them: their voices are good, and they achieve a lovely harmony. The songs are fun, lots of fun; doing housework listening to this music makes the job less tedious. The music can be uplifting, and never gets dull. It also makes my birds crazy, and any music than can touch the heart of a beast must have merit, right? I highly recommend this cd."
