Love Shack is one of my least favourite B52's tracks, Roam one of their best, and that sums this album up for me. A few too many tracks that are shown up a litte too much by the best of the others - Roam, Dry Country - still a decent listen though.

I decent, summer album. Check out the two part harmonies with the female singers.

Massive comeback, but still a little inconsistent. Stick with a compilation or their debut.

Right as everyone wrote them off as dead after Ricky Wilson's death and the subsequent failure of the underrated "Bouncing Off The Satellites", they came back bigger than ever. I am partial to the earlier records and admit that "Love Shack" isn't one of my fave B-52's songs but as a whole a very solid album that deserves to be known for more than that one overplayed hit.

Not anywhere near as much fun as the early albums. When the people throwing the party start sounding old, it's time to find a new and better one.
