Worth Discovering
19 March 2006 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Before I did any of my own investigation, I just assumed Devo was a one hit wonder of the New Wave era. They have now become one of my favorite bands, and this DVD only confirms it further. This is the chronological history of them by Music Video; some of the earlier pieces on this DVD are stories as well, bits and pieces about their 'Devolution Theory'. The early videos weren't shot in the best quality, but ironically those videos tend to reflect their better music, because as you'll see as you gradually progress into the DVD you'll see the video quality enhance but the songs become less familiar & popular. The ideas of most of their videos are random and yet sometimes very literal at the same time. A majority of those videos were produced during the early stages of video editing magic and CGI, so they do seem rather kitsch, but after all, isn't that Devo in a nutshell? This DVD also includes a slew of extra features, as well as commentary and some live performances. I really recommend this DVD to the Devo fan, the Avant-Garde music enthusiast, and the B-Quality film admirer.
