Devo’s 8th album, Smooth Noodle Maps, was originally released in 1990. It received a lukewarm reception from critics and fans initially, but time has been kind and it is now a fan favourite. It includes a version of Bonnie Dobson’s Morning Dew, which was also famously covered by The Grateful Dead. Devo were never a band to do things in a normal way, and that has continued into their reissue program. It is being released on three different coloured vinyl versions and CD.

If this was a quid in a charity shop I would knock it back, no one ever needed a deluxe reissue of this at £40 a pop. No wonder they packed it in as they were totally out of spunk, juice, pep, fire, jazz and clean out of new ideas etc etc. I'm sorry you have to try to sell this as I have no idea who would sit at home and listen to this.
It's like the crossroads in movies from the 80's that were actually filmed in the 90's that still seem like 80's films but they've lost all of the magic. The 80's mad cap stuff is a continuation of the 70's stuff that was more serious but still 'out there'but as we hit the 80's it's a bit more crass and commercial, mad-cap and still fun but as we hit the 90's it's still got that flavour of the 80's but it's lost all it's spunk zest and zap. Like when Steve Martin goes shit after Trains Planes and Automobiles.
The Jerk - Planes Trains and Automobiles - Cheaper By The Dozen
That is my little analogy.
