This modern world deserves a modern attitude.

"Bent. Off-kilter. Twisted. But no words can nail Voodoo's odd, dissonance--or its catchy tunes and sinister, cynical view of the world in which every person is a time-clock punching, end of the road loser about to be hammered. This album captures the sick conventionality of modern life--as apropos now as in 1981--and the odd, empty shells that masquerade as living, thinking beings. Every song is great, but I especially like Back In Flesh, Call Box, and Good Times."

"Just recently I have discovered that there is more to Wall Of Voodoo than their lone hit "Mexican Radio".

I found this out from seeing their "Call Box" video on VH1 Classic and hearing their remarkable cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire". Since this particular album "Dark Continent" has been long put of print and sells for big bucks on ebay, the only choice I had were to download some of the songs I could find from this album. It's definately some of the most original music I have ever heard, way ahead of it's time. My favorite songs off here have to be Call Box (1-2-3), Red Light, and Back In Flesh.

This is one album that's long overdue in the re-release department. It would be great to see it in stores and be available for purchase at a reasonable price."

"Chances are if a lot of the more creative and energized stuff from the Eighties was promoted and/or re-released everyone would quickly figure out how much contemporary stuff stinks. This was a hell of an album and the "Ring of Fire" cover was incredible. One of the last times music of the future sounded like music of the future. Write your congressperson."
