Background: Are We Not Men? was the debut LP from Ohio’s Devo, a band that had been playing clubs around the country for years.  Produced by Brian Eno, the album got a lot of positive press upon release and reached #78 on the U.S. charts. gave Are We Not Men? a 4 1/2 star review:

Produced by Brian Eno, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! was a seminal touchstone in the development of American new wave. It was one of the first pop albums to use synthesizers as an important textural element, and although they mostly play a supporting role in this guitar-driven set, the innovation began to lay the groundwork for the synth-pop explosion that would follow very shortly. Q: Are We Not Men also revived the absurdist social satire of the Mothers of Invention, claiming punk rock’s outsider alienation as a home for freaks and geeks. While Devo’s appeal was certainly broader, their sound was tailored well enough to that sensibility that it still resonates with a rabid cult following.
