Editorial Reviews

More than three decades after the release of its visionary debut, 'Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo,' and a full 20 years since its last studio album, Devo is back with the aptly titled 'Something for Everybody.' The long rumored, wildly anticipated album (which was launched with a memorable performance in Vancouver at the Winter Olympics) features the band's classic line-up - Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, Gerald and Bob Casale - joined by drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n' Roses). Though the songs recorded for 'Something for Everybody' are built on Devo's signature mechanized swing, the recording and presentation of the album saw the band experimenting with an entirely new approach. A series of studies were conducted through the clubdevo.com site to help the band with its creative decisions, from color selection to song mixes. In fact, 16 songs were recorded but only 12 made the final album. DEVO invited fans and critics to help select the songs that they liked best to make the cut by participating in a Song Study at clubdevo.com.

Alright, I've been a Devotee for something like 32 years. But let's not get straight to the heart of the matter. Where does this album fall in the scheme of all things Devo? The first 2 albums were guitar driven uber-nerd and quirky affairs. This is where I first fell for Devo. Freedom of Choice was where the boys had said they wanted to go - a keyboard driven band. Some fans were taken aback, was this a sellout? Yes and no. Devo if you recall had their own corporate anthem in 1979. They were always about pop culture and marketing. More on this below. So we embraced the new Devo. Then came New traditionalists. The first truly lateral step, but still good stuff this. Then came Oh No, It's Devo. Hmm. Love it or leave it, this was where fans began to rift. I still loved it. But alas, I fear the boys had run out of things to say - or perhaps we had really just caught up. Shout had its moments, but from here on the world seemed to be moving by. And so it passed.

Now comes Devo 3.0. (we shall never speak of Devo 2.0). A sharply honed purpose driven, lean and hungry new Devo. A Devo with a plan. A Devo shaped and polished by the infamous Focus Group with 88% approval*. Not a "reimagining", nor a "reboot", this is Devo for 2010. Sarcastic, witty and angular - this is the Devo we've been waiting for a long, long time. They have something to say and songs to play with an energy I personally thought was lost. Remember, these are the guys that used to do jumping jacks on stage if they weren't doing anything else. And it sounds as if they could do it again!

Will this create a whole new legion of Devotees? I don't know, but if you're new to Devo I'd say this is as good a starting point as any - and I never thought I'd say that about any "band reunion" album.

Something For Everybody is popular music's finest hour. It's the fountain of youth. An instant classic. I used to drive my parents batty back in 1980 jumping around the house singing Whip It and Uncontrollable Urge now my kids jump around the house singing "What we do is what we do"... My 9 year old said "this music is too good to be new"... the torch has been passed. Something for Everybody serves to ease the pain for all of us suffering through these musical dark ages.

They're back. And this time, they mean it. With this album Devo aims to set us straight on who's the boss in laying down ironic beats. Back in their heyday Devo proclaimed "It's a beautiful world we live in." Today they shout "What we do is what we do. It's all the same, ain't nuthing new." Both statements are the opposite of true. Several tracks on this album offer a whole lot of new. First, if you're buying the Standard ("Corporate") album, skip over Fresh. It's a Devo classic rave-up, with a wonderful stuttering chorus, but it sets the wrong tone for the newness to come. Start up with Step Up, a rocker with wicked swing. You haven't heard this from Devo before. Then continue with March On, a synth opus that could pop the tiles off the dance floor. After that, check out Human Rocket, another swinging rocker that mixes electronica with rockabilly, and offers lyrics that make you smile. After Human Rocket, just dig in. Some of the cuts sound (wonderfully) like old Devo on steroids (Don't Shoot... and the omnipresent Fresh). Mind Games is pure 80s power pop (also new for Devo) and perhaps we could have done without it. The biggest surprise -- and quite a departure for Devo -- is the gripping "There's No Place Like Home," in which Devo frames the most devastating assessment ever of human stupidity in a satirically pretentious pseudo-Rush power ballad. It's $#!@ BRILLIANT. And Devo can play! At its best, classic Devo made you think. Sometimes it made you cringe. On this album, Devo makes you proud.

Good album or not, it's just so amazing to finally have a new Devo album after all these long years. Thankfully, it is indeed a good album. It's not their best work ever, but it's certainly better than Total Devo and Smooth Noodle Maps... and that's all I dared to wish for. It somehow sounds like classic Devo without actually sounding like any of their previous material. (One thing I keep going "Oo!" at is that Bob's guitar is so dominant in the mix, which almost hearkens back to the first two albums.) It's better than anything on the radio these days, and that's a fact. I'm getting a kick out of their new de-evolved corporate strategy, all of the market testing and whatnot. They didn't just get back together to slap together and spit out a new record; they're genuinely back with us in today's horribly de-evolved world. And it's fantastic. I only wish Alan Myers was back.

EDIT: This morning I was listening to Sparks' Whomp That Sucker (1981) and was shocked at how similar some of it sounds to this new Devo. Check out the song 'Upstairs' to hear what I'm talking about.

This is a very good album! The band's previous two albums have always struck me as fairly lackluster compared to the energetic and highly creative output of the band in their heyday. Well, a 20 year break from making albums seems to be exactly what they needed, because Something for Everybody is loud, fun, exciting, and very high energy! DEVO manages to retain their quirky approach while sounding fresh and new. They are in top form here, and although the boys are now in their 60s, you'd never guess it listening to this brilliant album.

Something for Everybody is a MUST HAVE for fans of DEVO. I honestly wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do. This one's going to stay in the CD player for a while.
