Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. Verified Purchase. This disc comprises of Devos 3rd and 5th release on one disc with a few i think single only tracks. This cd is the worst of this set from Virgin Records, it has one great album Freedom of Choice and one okay but not vital release Oh No. The packaging is just plain bad, it has none of the charisma of the original releases and on a few songs even spells tracks wrong!
If you get all 3 of these releases you get 6 albums, and thats great for the price, but if you can, get either the original vinyls or more devo-ted re-releases. This simply feels like a way for Virgin to cash in on them which is sad. Freedom of Choice is their most famous release along side the debut but in my opinion it is Duty Now For The Future which is the best release.
I almost gave this 3 out of 5 as this simply the worst of the 3 releases, but, Freedom of Choice is still very much worth listening to. Worth getting for the music alone, but the packaging is worth only one star out of five. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. I didn't get how great 'Oh No it's Devo' is - but now I do. Whether Peek-a-boo was about the NSA is a moot point, it is now.

I am not a Devo fanatic, but I do like so many of their songs. I already own a greatest hits CD which is missing some very good tunes, so when I saw this offering on Amazon I needed to get Dont You Know - Devo - Oh No Its Devo / Freedom Of Choice (CD).
I still have my vinyl of Freedom of Choice in the garage and I always remembered how I enjoyed it from beginning to end, so being able to get it on CD plus a bonus CD of Oh No It's Devo for a good price was a no brainer. So, in conclusion 5 stars for the value and the amount of good songs you get out the CD.
The 3rd and 5th DEVO albums together on one disc. Oh Yea! Many great songs here. This whole album is very good, lot's of memories. Oh, No! I always felt this album came at a time when this band had plenty of funding and experience.
Certainly one of my personal favorites from them. Devolve into the techno-liciousness that is this double-album at a bargain price! Two spuds up!! Been looking for Oh no it's Devo on CD for a while to preserve my albumsbut it has been tough to find.
