    Dance your butt off!

    Love the B-52's, always have. Saw them perform recently and had to get their latest cd. "Pump" opens up the cd with a strong danceable beat. "Juliet" is a beautiful harmonic duo with Kate and Cindy. The title track "Funplex" is hysterical, danceable. This cd was one enjoyable surprise after another.

    "FUNPLEX" is just what we need!

    The world may be splitting apart at the seams, but thank goodness the B'52s are back to save us! I haven't taken this cd off my player since I got it! "Pump", "Juliet of the Spirits" and the title tune are all stellar standouts and as good as anything they've EVER done! In fact, even the filler songs work great, due to producer Steve Osbourne's deft touch and electronic flair. Fred is once again the wacky ringmaster, Cindy and Kate's vocals are his lush sideshow muses and Keith's guitar work strikes just the right balance for their first musical foray into the 21st C. The whole thing flows brilliantly so go ahead buy the cd, download it, whatever - but be sure to crank it up - I dare you to sit still in your chair!

    It's the B-52's Sex, Cocktails, and Rock and Roll Album!

    I have been a fan since 1981 and am an avid collector of the B-52s sound. I can tell you, that this fantastic new album holds it's own against anything that this band has done in it's 30+ year history. Funplex is most definitely vintage B-52s! All 11 tracks are trippy, fantastic, funny and contain that same wonderful vibe that all of us hardcore fans really love! "Juliet of the Spirits" is going to take the world by storm! Support the B's! Get Funplex on March 25th, and try to catch one of their many shows this spring and summer!

    A reviewer

    Record has a chance to be Cosmic Thing redux. The B 52's will cement their legacy as a seminal new wave band with legs. "Keep This Party" sounds like the new Loveshack - lord know it's time for a new LOveshack "Pump" "Hot Corner" and "Juliet" all with hit potential. Not all will hit but the clubs will definitely pick up on this record heavily. Radio and sales tbd but the B52's and this record deserve lots of both. The World's Greatest Party Band is just that and proving why- yet again

    THEIR BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WOW!!! This is what radio has been missing, for years. The return of the world's greatest party band, sexed up, rock ready and check out these beats.... Best Band out of Athens, Georgia- not about to sell out or slow down, these songs smoke. CHeck out Hot Corner, PUMP, ULtraViolet, Juliet of the Spirits is a joy and worth every bid of this masterpiece. The harmonies are as tight as ever, Keith Strickland has taking his time and crafted an arty ode to Punk, Rock and that raw garage guitar we first loved about this wacky party band that knows no boundries. Funplex along with Love in the Year 3000 are dance floor romps. From start to finish this is a classy welcome return and their best effort since they took off. Get ready to party FUNPLEX is finally here! Lets Keep this party going on!
