    Truely in a Class by themselves

    The greatest album of the 1980, load your drunken friends into a large American made V-8, insert disc, get on the highway going anywhere or no where and instant party.

    Walk into any party and change the disk to this and watch everybody get crazy. Pure FUN, whether your 5 or 55.

    This is the first outing back in 1979 and it still sounds, fresh and warm. If you are like me and have cooled to the 1,000,000 th time you have listened to Rock Lobster put this aside and listen to the other tracks. The album alone is worth the bang for your bucks with tracks like Lava and 606-0842. The lyrics and melodies are wacky, quirky and downright danceable. I love this album and it's always good for parties, get together events and jsut for the fun of it. It has aged very well. A true classic.

    My Favorite Record

    This record shook up the snoozing world of rock in 1979, becoming a truly classic disc, one full of landmark moments and heavy with possibilities. Most ''real'' rockers in the late '70s tried hard to ignore the Sex Pistols and the Clash, claiming the punk tumult was a merely a fad; but fun-loving types couldn't resist the magnificent hooks and grooves of the B-52's debut. They fell into the ''new wave'' while dancing their tushes off. The magnificent ''Rock Lobster'' remains unmatched in terms of its relentless, spastic power to move one's feet; ditto ''52 Girls,'' with its nod to '60s trash rock. A Cramps-ish guitar grinds through ''Lava,'' which features his-and-hers innuendo-laden lyrics. ''I'm not no limburger!'' goes one line from ''Dance This Mess Around,'' but you just never question why. Brilliant. --Lorry Fleming
