#439: Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!
by Devo (1978)

Favorite Track(s): "Mongoloid" and "Jocko Homo"

Thoughts: I'm surprised this album came out in the 70s, as I always thought of Devo as an 80s band. And they are considered new wave, which I'd never known to classify them as. Mostly because I couldn't really tell you what new wave is even if you asked me. 'You know, that punk...rock...electric...stuff...from the 80s?"

Anyway, I did like this album, but didn't love it. I kept wanting to listen to something a little more lush and musical-feeling. Half the time I couldn't understand the lyrics, and the songs grew old quickly for me. Which is why I'm a bit frustrated to find this album this far up the list.
