A: We Are Devo! It was one of the first pop albums to use synthesizers as an important textural element, and although they mostly play a supporting role in this guitar-driven set, the innovation began to lay the groundwork for the synth-pop explosion that would follow very shortly. Q: Are We Not Men also revived the absurdist social satire of the Mothers of Inventionclaiming punk rock's outsider alienation as a home for freaks and geeks. While Devo 's appeal was certainly broader, their sound was tailored well enough to that sensibility that it still resonates with a rabid cult following.
It isn't just the dadaist pseudo-intellectual theories, or the critique of the American Белая Акация - Вадим Казаченко - Скатертью Дорога (Лучшие Песни) as unthinkingly, submissively conformist. It was the way their music reflected that view, crafted to be as mechanical and robotic as their targets. Yet Devo hardly sounded like a machine that ran smoothly.
There was an almost unbearable tension in the speed of their jerky, jumpy rhythms, outstripping Talking HeadsXTCand other similarly nervy new wavers. And thanks to all the dissonant, angular melodies, odd-numbered time signatures, and yelping, sing-song vocals, the tension never finds release, which is key to the album's impact.
It also doesn't hurt that this is arguably Devo 's strongest set of material, though several brilliant peaks can overshadow the remainder.
