Every once in a while, a band creates an album that is truly unique, an album so starkly original and wildly creative that nothing before or since has sounded similar to it and likely never well. Truly this is the case with the group Wall of Voodoo's first LP, Dark Continent.

Wall of Voodoo in the Ridgway era was a complete original. No band has ever or will ever sound like them. I also rate Dark Continent as one of my top 10 or all time! I also love the Seven Days in Sammystown album but anyone interested in locating that recording should be aware going into it that the Prieboy era sounds very different from the Ridgway era. Much less stark sounding and doesn't match Ridgway for superb humor and lyrical content. This is Wall Of Voodoo's 1st full-length album and their best album. It's in my personal all-time Top 10 list (and I've been listening to ALOT of music over the many years. Even though their 2nd Lp Call Of The West is more well-known and "critically acclaimed" with the radio hit "Mexican Radio" and has a more lush, sophisticated sound, this predecessor broke new ground in originality and style and still sounds great today.

In some ways, Dark Continent is Wall of Voodoo's greatest album. Although it lacks the "Mexican Radio" of its follow-up, there is no filler and the arrangements and concepts are brilliantly executed. Proffering an utterly unique blend of drum machine beats, Marc Moreland's Western-influenced guitar leads, and Stan Ridgway's distinctive vocals and lyrics, Dark Continent has been compared to the music of Devo, but is not quite like anything - or anyone - else
