Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The surprise success of Beauty and the Beat meant that the Go-Go's were expected to remain hitmakers, so perhaps it shouldn't have come as a surprise that their second album, Vacation, is a considerably slicker affair than their debut.

However, Vacation is far from a washout.

    Still THE best girl band

    Back when I was in 5th grade I wanted to be in the Go-Gos. Even when I got older and became more discerning when it came to music, I still thought the Go-Gos were way cool. Recently, after a long hiatus I listened to this old album and I was surprised to find that it still rocks. Wow, it really does have staying power. Now that 80s punk is back, the Go-Gos still sound fresh. Personally, I think they sound 10 times better than The Donnas and Kelly Osbourne.
