Wild Planet is the second studio album by the B-52's, released in 1980. As with their first album, the B-52's traveled to Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas to record Wild Planet. Several of the songs from the album had been concert staples since 1978.
The B-52s (styled as The B-52's prior to 2008) is an American new wave band formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1976. The original line-up consisted of Fred Schneider (vocals), Kate Pierson (vocals, keyboards), Cindy Wilson (vocals, percussion), Ricky Wilson (guitar), and Keith Strickland (drums, guitar, keyboards). Ricky Wilson died from AIDS-related illness in 1985, and Strickland switched from drums to lead guitar. The band also added touring members for albums and live performances.
Conventional wisdom has it that all the B-52's' subsequent releases are highly inferior to their debut. While Wild Planet is not the rarefied wonder their first platter is, it's still darn good. The songs here are generally faster, tighter, and punchier than previously, though production values are not as wonderfully quirky and detailed; fewer songs here are as over-the-top crazy as the first album's "Rock Lobster" or "52 Girls.

The B-52’s came out sounding raw and live because Blackwell wanted to accurately capture their electric sound in the rock clubs, which had won rabid fans with its danceability and maximal minimalism. It got them mentioned in the same breath as post-punk heavyweights Devo and Wire as art-punk on its release. Major label or no, it’s still one of the most outright bizarre albums to sell over a million copies. From the opening Morse-code beeps of Planet Claire, the band’s interstellar obsession is foregrounded. Its Peter Gunn riff, Pierson’s keyboards, and wordless vocals make up the first two and a half minutes of the song before Schneider starts singing. It’s about their willingness to let tension build to the edges of discomfort, to startle a listener who might have thought this was going to be an instrumental only to start yelling at them about a planet where all the trees are red and no one.
The B-52’s, (now stylized as The B-52s) are an internationally successful New Wave band also known for their campy fashion. Their original line-up included Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson and Ricky Wilson. Originally, all members of the band played multiple instruments. It was followed by Wild Planet in 1980 which spawned another minor US hit with Private Idaho. Whammy! followed in 1983, giving the band a third minor US hit with Legal Tender. Their fourth album, Bouncing off the Satellites, was released in 1986 after Ricky Wilson’s death. Their sixth album Good Stuff came out in 1992, notably lacking Cindy Wilson, who took a break from the band and was temporarily replaced by Julee Cruise. Their 1994 remake of Meet The Flintstones for the feature film The Flintstones (as ‘The BC-52s’) is their last US top 40 hit.
Forget "Rock Lobster. The true B-52's signature song is "Private Idaho. If you look at their career "Rock Lobster" doesn't really hold up as well as a lot of their material. It is a great song, don't get me wrong. It got played out fast. It came from their debut album that, when played alongside later records, just doesn't have the same replay ability that albums like Wild Planet or Whammy! do. "Private Idaho" should have blown up. It is a rockin', dance-y, catchy ing piece of art. And that is what most of Wild Planet sounds like.
The B-52s advanced their reputation as the greatest party band on the planet to a whole new generation of music fans. They played to sold-out audience worldwide on a tour that would last more than 18 months, including an Earth Day gig before nearly 750,000 people in New York City's Central Park. Soon after, Cindy Wilson amicably departed. In 2008 the B-52s released their first new album in 16 years, the aptly titled Funplex. With its primal guitar hooks, driving drums and the B-52s' unmistakable vocal style, Funplex is instantly recognizable as quintessential and contemporary B-52s. Newsweek Magazine declared, Like a sonic shot of vitamin B12, the dance floor beats, fuzzy guitar riffs and happy, shiny lyrics keep the energy going. The concert was released on a CD, DVD and Blu-ray entitled The B-52s With The Wild Crowd! Live in Athens, GA.
