Often fun, but very hard to take serious. They have their place, but it's not a big one.

Fun fun fun... Creative, danceable mess. Sometimes gets a little trite, but if you stick with the gems you're good.

THE B-52's, COSMIC THING, and...yes...BOUNCING OFF THE SATELLITES are the three must-haves of this group. Kate and Cindy are two girls that can really sing! And Fred? Fred is just so...well..off-beat. This retro-chic new wave surf pop delight is absolutely addictive. From COSMIC THING, be sure to listen to "Channel Z" and "Roam" along with the over-played, but still funky-as-hell, "Love Shack." From the debut, check out "Planet Claire," "52 Girls," "Lava," and (no surprise here) "Rock Lobster" (the song that actually made use of the same types of crazy noises that Yoko made 10 years earlier). Also, do NOT dismiss BOUNCING OFF THE SATELLITES! "Summer of Love," "Girl from Ipanema Goes to Greenland," "Wig," "Theme for a Nude Beach," "Detour Through Your Mind," "Housework,"...damn...that album, which is aften overlooked because of the the tragedy surrounding it, is filled to the brim with catchy, poppy, fun, and infectious. Sure, the other two albums are more popular...but this one definitely contains some of their strongest work! I'd recommend it highly for any B-52's fan, new wave fan...or the person that has never listened to the B-52's. BOUNCING OFF THE SATELLITES is a wonderful introduction to the B-52's and absolutely captures their spirit more than any of their other releases.
