3 stars At 1985, Oingo Boingo moves to the MCA records and quickly becomes a pop-oriented band between ska and post-punk with their fourth release, Dead Man's Party. The album tracks was already used as soundtracks for a hundred movies and TV series: Back to School, Weird Science (the song of the same name was written specially for the film), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Casper, Chuck, the Brazilian telenovel Top Model, and more.

The album is good, but it have some weak tracks. I must admit that my favorites here are their best-known songs, Stay and Weird Science. By the way, this release has nothing to do with prog, and it's not as good as their early albums.
