Biography

"Thirty years ago, people said that we were cynical, that we had a bad attitude," says Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh. "But now, when you ask people if de-evolution is real, they understand that there was something to what we were saying. It’s not the kind of thing you want to see proven right, but it does make it easier to talk about."

4.0 out of 5 stars A Brainy Bye Bye March 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
DEVO had one more album in them before Mark Mothersbaugh decided there was more to be done scoring "Rugrats" cartoons, Disney cable shows and movie soundtrack work. "Smooth Noodle Maps" (the title refers to the patterns on the surface of a human brain) plays to all the strengths of their "Freedom Of Choice" salad days. The guitars are back among the electronics, and the compositions are hooky and dance floor smart. The one-two punch of "Stuck In A Loop Again" and "Post Post Modern Man" reinvigorate the theory of de-evolution in a powerful fashion, with a great deal of zip. They even throw in a DEVO-esque cover of the ancient "Morning Dew" (probably best known as a Grateful Dead favorite) to prove they still have what it takes to twist an oldie. They may have lost most of their sense of societal irony, but with the nasty "Jimmy" and the burned out relationship blues of "Dawghaus," DEVO at least could claim they closed up shop with a solid recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars To all the Jonee cum lately spuds... January 13, 2006
By Harper
Format:Audio CD
This album was the perfect way for them to call it a day. Only a prententious artsy-late-on-the-bandwagon newb would not at least enjoy this album if not downright love it.

I've been a spudfan since before there was an MTV, and even before *shudder* there was any Freedom of Choice.

The only thing Devo can be said to be guilty of is in miscalculating just how fast the music industry would go straight to hell.

Listen to anything by most current "artists" and you'll probably agree with me.

Unlike the crappers/boybands/tramped out gansta chicks etc who've been out there for the last few years, DEVO never took themselves at all seriously.

There's something to be said for that...

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing, unpretentious slice of spud. September 18, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album the week it came out. After Total Devo, this was a step forward. Definately a must have, and one of Devo's last studio albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but overlooked February 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is the only Devo album I have yet heard, but it is incredible. There are no bad songs, and aside from the Big Picture (which is merely ok), they're all great. Morning Dew is amazing. Smooth Noodle Maps is very pop and accessible, but still edgy and weird enough to be interesting. Get this one now, you won't be sorry.

4.0 out of 5 stars DEVOTE April 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Great CD, Wish I had the LP. Mastered a bit too loud however, had to turn it way down compared to most other CDs. Wonder Why? New CD from them in the Fall, can't wait!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost Devo Album from the 90s September 13, 2013
By Ozwell
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although they continue to tour and still have millions of fans around the world, Smooth Noodle Maps is an album from the wilderness years of the band. Other project and interests would soon lure them away.
The single Post Post Modern Man is the standout, and you could feel happy to buy the album on the strength of that alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another post-Warner jewel June 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
More mellow than Total DEVO.
A reflective period for the band?
Suffered from poor label support and promotion.
You are remiss if your collection does not include this.

DEVO's CD 'Smooth Noodle Maps' is a great departure from their early recordings of the 1980's. The Big hit on the CD is a song Called 'Post,Post Modern Man'. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars an underappreciated gem in the Devo catalog
This album is a huge step up from Total Devo. I like Total Devo, but it's easily the band's worst album. This one has better songs, better flow, and better production. Read more
