The B-52's are one of those bands where I can actually say "I prefer their earlier stuff"

Listen to the first album, then listen to Bouncing off the Satellites back-to-back, and you'll be shocked how quickly they turned into Anypopband, USA - Cyndi Lauper, Madonna - that kinda padiddly. Totally keyboard. Totally faceless pop.

God, what the hell happened, dammit? Their later work is NOTHING like their first two records. How quickly they degenerated from an exciting amalgamation of 60s kitsch and surf rock into.... generic pop music '86. Disappointing. Very, very disappointing.

especially cindy

Wild Planet was their peak

Mesopotemia was interesting because Byrne was involved but it lost that surf sound for new-wave general.

Whammy was hit and miss

Satellites was garbage

Cosmic was generic 80s twangy guitar pop, like what REM and other bands were doing already.

Kate used to be straight, I always thought Cindy looked much dykier than her

Anyone here from Athens GA?

Whats the music scene like now, Sterile and shitty? Is it even that gay of a place?
>>
>>61881208
Completely agree with this

People say Satellites is "their best" and I don't understand that. There's nothing weird or interesting about it, unlike the earlier records
>>
>tfw one of the only two presents I got this past Christmas is a B-52s Best of album

ffffuck you Robert

In honesty though, what were they supposed to do? By the time of Satellites, new-wave was pretty much phased out. Debut album was 1978 and the other was 1985..

I suppose they could've called it quits after wild planet.

it went downhill as soon as people found out it was a cool place to live

It all went to shit when Cindy's brother Ricky, their guitarist who died in 1985
