3 stars Despite the previous album having crowd pleasers like Dead Man's party and the theme song from the movie and TV show Weird Science, I find this album to be a (very) slight improvement over that one. Home Again is an interesting piece, mostly because of the layered vocals in the chorus section. Tell Me Where My Friends Go is a cool, call and response piece with some funny lyrics, and Elevator Man is the obligatory toe tapper. The album, while nowhere near as good as Oingo Boingo's first three, manages to remain interesting enough, with the slightly eerie New Generation, the not quite outrageous enough Outrageous, and the nice closer, Pain. The prog quotient is not much better than the last album, but at least it keeps my interest, and makes a fine party disk.
