アメリカン・テクノ／ニュー・ウェイヴを代表するバンドの1978年のデビュー作『Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo』と81年のライヴ盤『DEV-O Live』をカップリング、さらに3曲のボーナス・トラックを追加。CDの収録時間ギリギリに挑戦した2 in 1お買得盤。ローリング・ストーンズの名曲をぶっ壊した「サティスファクション」はパンク・スピリットとユーモアを融合させた名演。「ガール・U・ウォント」「フリーダム・オブ・チョイス」「ホイップ・イット」など初期の代表曲が次々と飛び出すライヴも楽しく、1枚で2粒おいしい内容だ。（山崎智之）
This CD combining `Q: Are We Not Me? A: We are Devo' and `Devo Live' is fantastic. As a starting point and introduction to their music I would recommend greatest hits compilation instead, but this CD is most defiantly worth getting. Not only do you get two albums on one CD but you get two of their best albums.
`Q: Are We Not Men...' is fantastic, worth buying alone for just `Mongoloid', `Jocko Homo' and the best Rolling Stones cover ever `Satisfaction' - I shudder when I hear it (the video is awesome but no one ever shows it anymore).
`Devo Live' is a testament to the musicianship and proves just how fantastic they were, and since I never got to see them live (being that I was to young and also living on a different continent) this recording is just enough compensation.
If you like post-punk, new wave, synth pop, college rock with hints of avant-garde then you probably have this already, if you don't why not?
Growing up in NE Ohio [the land of futile tradition and complacency] around the time these guys were getting popular adds a little to the magic of this band for me. To think of these guys playing this stuff to those people at that time, well - it's amazing these guys didn't end up permanent residents of a hospital somewhere. At the time we all heard it we thought it was too unusual to be cool because NE Ohio wanted more and more and more derivative and stale metal rock, until one day we realized "we're all Devo!".
This premiere recording by Devo is guitar-driven psychotic angst at its finest. To me, it's the sound of past, present and future rolled into one loud lump: like 50's music played by aliens on 70's musical equipment. This album set the precedent for the yet-to-be-seen punk variety of new wave and in retrospect, it's amazing how prophetic the band was. Go back 25 years and hear the future of rock. I challenge you, spuds.
