an absolute gem 15 août 2002
Par Stuart MacDonnell - Publié sur
Format: CD
Just what it was that made Was (Not Was) so very special is a little hard to pin down: the crisp tight production, the ability to seamlessly go from funky r'n'b to lounge to rock to heartbreaking ballads to whatever other style they chose, the sensational vocals of Sir Harry Bowens and Sweet Pea Atkinson or their ability to write memorable melodies and couple them with some of the wittiest, most bizarre or touching lyrics in popular music? Could be all of the above. Whatever it was, they are all amply demonstrated on this album - their finest hour. For me, the achingly beautiful and tragi-comic balladry of Somewhere In America, Anything Can Happen and Anytime Lisa are standouts. But then so are the funky (and so clever) Spy In The House Of Love, Out Come The Freaks and Boy's Gone Crazy. Despite the wide range of styles there is not a dud track here and in 2002 this album still sounds as strong and fresh as it ever did.

I was listening to WUD again today.... 8 mai 2003
Par William Anderson - Publié sur
Format: CD
Read the other reviews. This is the album to take with you if you are tranferred to the moon. It is the best of Weiss & Fagenson's simply incredible sampler albums. All of them are must-haves.
Check out this partial lyric (from _Shadow and Jimmy_, track 15):
Men without women are like fish without
Water to swim in
With their eyes bugging out
They flop on the beach
And look up at the girls
Who are just out of reach
Now, this lyric is delivered (by Sir Harry, I believe) totally straight, and very musically. But I was listening to this album again today, and I had to pull my car over to the side of the road to keep from killing someone, I was laughing so hard.
I wish that 1) Weiss and Fagenson would get off their duffs and release their first WNW album on CD (I have the vinyl), and 2) They would release the "new" material that was rumored to be in the can circa 1999-2000.
I love these guys.

Chic Meets Jonathan Richman 29 mai 2000
Par dev1 - Publié sur
Format: CD
The title What Up Dog? begs the reviewer to open his comments with: Well, I'll tell you what up. These are two goofy guys (David and Don) from Detroit who make jumping dance tempo R&B with a heavy touch of zany lyrics - sort of Chic meets Jonathan Richman. Lead vocalists Sir Harry Bowens and Sweet Pea Atkinson sound as sweet and soulful as Little Anthony fronting the Imperials (Somewhere In America There's A Street Named After My Dad, Love Can Be Bad Luck, Anything Can Happen, Wedding Vows In Vegas). The two crooners will have you thinking that you're listening to Motown's Greatest Hits. The straight-up dance numbers (Spy In The House Of Love, Out Come The Freaks, Robot Girl, Walk Like A Dinosaur) are robust and rhythmic. Pop the CD in your car player and do the funky chicken (or whatever it's call this week) on your drive to work. I was in tears when the clubs stopped playing this stuff about 10 years ago.
What Up Dog? is a jaunting dance grove, but what pushes the CD into the realm of masterpiece is the lyrical craziness. `Somewhere In America' there is a quiet neighborhood with "no saber-tooth neighbors" and "no day care Felinis." In `Spy In The House Of Love' the spy admits "I used a tiny camera - I thought I'd Japanese her." `11 MPH' is a funky composition about assignation. `Anytime Lisa' is the town tramp whom David and Don treat with compassion. And the grand finale is the cynical `Dad I'm In Jail.' Must be heard to be appreciated. Danceable R&B with lyrics actually worth paying attention to. Contagious material.

Forgot how great this CD is! 28 novembre 2006
Par J. G. - Publié sur
Format: CD
I was cleaning out some old CD's and picked this one up. I hadn't listened to it in a long time and figured I'd give it to my ex-husband, since I knew he liked it way back when. Well, on the way to his house, I listened to it in the car. By the time I got there, I had decided to keep it! I forgot just how great this CD is. Really great stuff. My youngest loves "Walk the Dinosaur", "Robot Girl", and "Dad I'm in Jail". You can't get "Spy in the House of Love" out of your head. Very groovable. You really want to move to this music. Great writing too... "11 mph" is great, as is "Somewhere in America there's a Street named after my Dad".

My Desert Island Album 6 décembre 2001
Par Anne R. Eason - Publié sur
Format: CD
This is the one. If I could only listen to one CD on an extended stay on a tropical island, this would be the one. What can I say? I've been listening to this disc at least once a month since its debut in 1989 and I still find it fresh, funky and exciting.
The sheer variety of music on the album is a marvel. From the pure adolescent pop of "Anything Can Happen" to the hard rocking "11 mph" to the slinky urban reggae of "Shadow & Jimmy," it's all here. Favorite tracks are probably "Somewhere in America" (one of the greatest opening tracks of all time) and "Out Come the Freaks."
This is a band at its short-lived peak. I've always hoped Don Was would someday open the vault and release other material recorded by the band around this time. If such music exists, it would probably kick the butt of most of the stuff on the radio today. Most highly recommended.
PS. Does anybody know why the follow-up album, "Are You OK?" has been out of print for so long? It's not bad, it just pales in comparison to "What Up Dog."
