Devo 2.0, as all the Nickolodeon-watching world knows, is a kiddie spinoff of the original upside-down flower-pot wearing New Wave band. And, as it goes forward and moves ahead with "Whip It" and the 11 other Devo-penned tracks on this audio/video double-disc package, it's ruffling a lot of feathers. New Wave nerds are rightfully leery of the kings of their long-lost scene being kiddified, of course. But maybe more significantly, parents who heaped hosannas on Disney for conceiving Here Come the ABCs, the 2005 They Might be Giants masterpiece, can't help feeling like this left turn ought to be greeted with a failure-to-signal citation. "That's Good," no matter how compellingly it's sung by cute tween frontgirl Nicole, is no "E Eats Everything," after all. And though there's no shortage of message songs here--check the revamped "Through Being Cool" and "The Winner," one of two new Devo-penned tracks--any learning going on as a result of this disc is strictly a geek-chic side effect. But that's not to say Devo 2.0 isn't a whole heap of fun, or that Disney, with this first outing on its Disney Sound imprint, isn't onto something. 2.0, more than anything, is the anti-Kidz Bop: here are five kids, ages 10 to 13, deeply in touch with their dorky sides in the same way their weirdly dressed mentors were, and here are five kids who can sing with distinction. Add to that the danceability of these tracks, and all the naysaying seems baselessly grouchy. Spin it and see if you don't find yourself singing a different tune--one with "bring on the Go-Gos" in it. They're Disney Sound's next signing, and they'll undergo the same kids-take-the-mike treatment. --Tammy La Gorce

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a gateway October 21, 2006
By E. Fox
Format:Audio CD
I found an old Devo's Greatest Misses cassette in my garage recently and had been playing it in my car while taking my elementary-aged daughters to school. While the tape brought back great memories for me, my kids hated Devo. Then on a trip to Wal-Mart I found DEV2.0, noticed it was produced by the folks from Devo, bought it, and have been playing it for the last two weeks in the car--and my daughters like it!

Although I can't bring myself to sing "Boy" U Want and I shake my head in disbelief when I hear the focus of "Uncontrollable Urge" changed to a passion for snack foods, I consider this CD a gateway to the harder Devo recordings I plan to introduce as the months progress.

Now, if only I can get the kids interested in Zappa, too....

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh No! It's Devo!...For the Kids! October 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
One of the stranger, more subtly subversive DEVO products ever unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

Like the long-out-of-print RYKODISC " DEVO-E-Z listening" CD, which contained Devo's self-produced muzak versions of their own songs, performed in various styles and genres, DEVO 2.0, is another experiment of exposing Devo to society at large...Or at least, more specifically this time --- your kids.

Given that Mark And Bob Mothersbaugh and Bob Casale write and produce music for some chidren's programming and movies nowadays, it oddly seems appropiate. The difference here is, that this album is not subversive Devo background music but a sort of greatest hits of DEVO, re-interpreted, along with 2 new tracks and with pre-teens making up this "band": 3 boys, 2 girls. The girl lead singer has a Gwen Stefani vibe in her performance.

Not to be missed with this CD package, is the DVD that comes with it. Full of videos for most of the songs on the CD, it shows the kids performing in front of computer animations, shown on plasma TV's, which sync up and go along with the music...reminscent of what was done by the actual Devo back with the "oh no! it's Devo!" album tour in concert back in the 80's. Also, on the DVD...a big Bonus for Devo fans...Interviews with Gerry Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh, the braintrust of the REAL DEVO, conducted by the Dev2.0 band members itself. Worth a few chuckles, is the apparently Disney-produced "history" of Devo, a commercial included on the DVD as an extra that attempts to explain DEVO to the younger generation. funny...

You may not agree that Dev2.

5.0 out of 5 stars We ARE all DEVO July 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
DEVO 2.0 is a project by DEVO. There are two disks, a CD and a DVD. They claim in the interview on the DVD that DEVO has always yearned to be more than just a band and the idea of them being the "puppet masters" behind other artists fronting as DEVO is not new. Indeed as mentioned in the other reviews here, DEVO released two albums of genuine and earnest MUZAK versions of a collection of their songs. Also they played as the musicians on TONI BASIL's debut album in 1982 `Word of Mouth" while she covered four of their songs (Space Girl Blues, Be Stiff, Pity You and Love's Little Red Book).

While they claim that the members of DEVO 2.0 will be capable of playing their own instruments by the time of their summer 2006 tour, DEVO does in fact play all the instruments on the CD. The DVD has both the DEVO 2.0 music videos with colorful new DEVO cartoons playing on monitors in the background, and the option of watching those cartoons by themselves with only the DEVO soundtrack. They compliment each other and I found both enjoyable to watch. And if that weren't enough, DEVO 2.0 covers two new DEVO songs, Cyclops, and The Winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lil' DEVO February 22, 2006
By D2
Format:Audio CD
DEVO - The Next Generation.

While the release date is listed as March 14th, 06 it is actually now available at Target. Also worth noting, the Target version includes a 2 bonus videos and 1 bonus song.

The music was produced by DEVO with the vocals by DEV2.O. Word is, that the kids now know how to play and when on tour will do their own music (other than some complex synth patterns). Having grown up a DEVO fan, I am very happy with the slick product that is being presented here. I like the idea of my children being able to enjoy the music I grew up with.

Some lyrics are changed, and this does impact some of the irony of DEVO. But DEVO did the re-writing, and while the changes do cause me to stumble when I sing along, children won't know or care.

The music is fun, energetic and meant to be played LOUD! Nichole does a great job on vocals. I don't care for her in the videos, she hams it up a little more than needed. Then again, I am not the target audience, so what do I know?

Maybe we will get another CD from DEV2.O, but something tells me this is a one-shot deal. Hope I'm wrong, I'd like to hear them tackle: Time Out For Fun, Jocko Homo, Mongoloid and Speed Racer. We'll see....

1.0 out of 5 stars Craptacularly Gagworthy
Thankfully common sense reeled me in before even contemplating buying this atrocity. I did listen to the 'samples'. I guess, Mothersbaugh got his 'revenge' on Disney after all.

The music is not bad, but the vocals sound like she is cold reading them off the sheet for the first time. Tuneless and emotionless.

It isn't thaaaat bad, is it?
For those true Devo fans out there, I would say this: Do you remember "Now It Can Be Told"? That was a live album that Devo released a long time ago. It stunk. I heard one mighty song after another butchered. Devo is not flawless. They have made music that I didn't like in the... Read More
