Next big thing

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.

Devo 2.0-Self Titled

None September 21st, 2006



The signs were there when Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo began composing for children's films like "The Rugrats Movie." It should come as no surprise that something like "Devo 2.0" would eventually arise. Devo 2.0, a group of 10- to 13-year-olds, sings the Devo classics and a couple of new tracks by Mothersbaugh and fellow Devo songwriter, Gerald V. Casale.
"Devo 2.0" is a Disney product, which should say everything. The question is, what does this mean to the fans of the groundbreaking band? A reunion didn't seem to be a possibility since the last new material from Devo came out in 1990.
At any rate, the music is adequately re-created, making the project weird but not a complete throwaway. The vocals are competent enough to cover the songs and quirky enough so the songs aren't as anemic as they should be. "Devo 2.0" is amusing at best, but soon becomes grating, much like most other 10- to 13-year-olds I've met.
