Devo: Oh, No! It's Devo (1982)

I don't think this is the best Devo record, but it's not the worst either. Some have argued that, on this record, Devo thought it wise to try and sound like very other new wave band. Bringing in Roy Thomas Baker, who had made some great sounding Cars songs, might convince one think that is true. And, the use of the guitar is limited on this record, but I am not sure if that is a bad or a good thing. At any rate, this record is so much better than the album that followed it. Also, I have to give a thumbs up to the cover.
