Oingo Boingo Dead Man's Party. Before he wrote half the soundtracks in the world (Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas) Danny Elfman led himself an eccentric little rock band called Oingo Boingo. Actually they weren't so little; in fact, the eight-man band boasted one of rock's finest horn sections in addition to Elfman's devilishly good, often humorous songs. Dead Man's Party is Boingo's finest hour, melding their whacked-out mix of XTC, Frank Zappa, and Tower of Power with a genuine pop sensibility. Elfman is in perfect vocal form here, leading the combo through their biggest hit, "Weird Science" (which put Elfman on the soundtrack path) as well as Boingo chestnuts "Fool's Paradise" and the infectious, macabre title track.--Michael Ruby

In short Oingo Boingo are a new-wave/post-punk group with flashy sounding guitars and glistening keyboard effects. Another interesting aspect about the band is that they incorporate minor jazz and funk elements into their music along with snazzy brass instruments and groovy basslines. Danny Elfman does an excellent job at lead vocals, his powerful, eerie, and spastic voice takes control of the music and while it can sound almost to loud and crazy at first it adds an upbeat atmosphere to the music. While Oingo Boingo didn�t create anything amazing with Dead Mans Party they produced some fun, slick pop songs and added a more sinister edge to new-wave music. Review by Chris Jackson
