Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

The B-52s

Funplex

2008-03-24

This album doesn’t need much description. It sounds just like the B-52s! Keith Strickland still runs the show musically. Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson still mesh beautifully on the vocals. Fred Schneider still adds his Ethel Merman voice to the mix. This is their first release since their anthology in 1998. The updated B-52s use a bit more electronics in this sexed-up party. Highlights are the title track “Funplex” as well as #2 “Hot Corner” and #11 “Keep This Party Going”. - Rebecca Ruth
