Oingo Boingo - Only A Lad Only A Lad
Pop New - LP SP 4863 A&M
Sealed 1981 Original. “Only A Lad Contains Obvious New Wave Elements, But It Doesn't Stick To Any One Style Long, Undulating Over A Vast Musical Terrain. Ska, New Wave, Classical, Heavy Metal -- They All Make At Least Cameo Appearances. The Band's Musicianship, Even At This Relatively Early Stage, Far Exceeds Most Of Their Peers, And Elfman's Deft Songwriting Ability Offers A Clear Glimpse Of What Was To Come. Elfman's Voice Fits Perfectly Within An '80s Context, But Otherwise, The Album Sounds Far Ahead Of Its Time. As Such, It Should Come As No Surprise The Album Had More Influence On Musicians And Artists Than On The Charts. It's Probably A Good Thing That This Particular Oingo Boingo Collection Never Reached Too High A Level Of Prominence, Though, Because The Lyrical Content Of Only A Lad Could Have Landed Them In Serious Hot Water. Although Never Vulgar, The Album Brazenly Shuffles Through Taboos Without Compunction, Writing From A Pedophile's Point Of View In "Little Girls," Not-So-Clandestinely Discussing Masturbation In "Nasty Habits," And Generally Adopting A Socially Whimsical And Irreverent Attitude. The Lone Track Not Written By Elfman Is A Stellar Tribute To The Kinks' Classic Cut "You Really Got Me." Later Cited As An Influence By Such Diverse Bands As Nirvana, Mr. Bungle, And Fishbone, This Album Stands Up Well To The Test Of Multiple Listens And Would Make A Worthwhile Addition To Any Album Collection.” Kieran McCarthy, AMG.... more details

Oingo Boingo - Dead Man's Party Dead Man's Party
Pop Used - LP MCA 5665 MCA
Rare 1985 Original With Lyric Insert. Large Custom Hype Sticker On The Front Cover. Unplayed Promo Copy With Gold Promo Stamp On Back Cover. From The Collection Of A Tower Rep. “Returning After A Two-Year Recording Hiatus (During Which Bandleader Danny Elfman Recorded A Solo Album), Oingo Boingo Forsook The Excesses Of Smart-Aleck Humor And Quirky Production That Had Led Critics Almost Universally To Dismiss The Band's First Four Albums. The Sound Is Still Maybe Just A Bit Too Uptight And Over-Determined, But The Horn Charts Are More Focused And Sophisticated, And Elfman Has Matured Considerably As A Lyricist. Alongside Such Typically Oddball Fare As The Title Track And A Surprise Hit Song Called "Weird Science" Are The Faintly Paranoid "Just Another Day" And The Frankly Romantic "Stay," As Well As A Glorious Motown Tribute Called "Help Me." But "Weird Science" Is What Really Brings Things To A Close With A Bang -- Though It Reverts Somewhat To The Band's Earlier Indulgence In Wacka-Wacka Sound Effects And Willfully Crazy Production Technique, It's Also One Of Boingo's Most Satisfying Pop Songs Ever. Overall, This Is Perhaps The First Oingo Boingo Album To Hang Together Really Well As A Whole. Recommended.” Rick Anderson, AMG.... more details
