Call of the West songs Product Information
Call of the West album for sale by Wall Of Voodoo was released Oct 25, 1990 on the I.R.S. (U.S.) label. Wall of Voodoo's second full-length album, Call of the West, was a noticeably more approachable work than their debut, Dark Continent, and it even scored a fluke hit single, "Mexican Radio," a loopy little number about puzzled American tourists that's easily the catchiest thing on the album. But while Wall of Voodoo's textures had gotten a bit less abrasive with time, the band's oddball minor-key approach was still a long way from synth pop, and frontman Stan Ridgway's songs were Americana at it's darkest and least forgiving, full of tales of ordinary folks with little in the way of hopes or dreams, getting by on illusions that seem more like a willful denial of the truth the closer you get to them. Call of the West CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs. ...See Full Description

If you consider a follower of progressive music at all, You must own this album. As innovative as the Talking Heads, WOV proves you can make an original project and leave the rest of the music world in the dust.

I bought this CD on the basis of Mexican Radio, a single I heard many years ago. The rest of the CD improves on this track and is a collection of innovative music and lyrics.
By a reviewer (England)
I never put W.O.V. on my top band list, but after listening to "Mexican radio", I was "forced" to listen to the rest of the songs on this album... and I was pleasantly surprised with the final product.

This is one of Wall of Voodoo's absolute best CD's. I love the instrumental 'Intersate 15'. Long live Wall of Voodoo.
By Gavin Heim (Irvine, CA)
||One Of The Best Albums Ever!|
What is there not to be said about this new wave treasure? From their fun and playful "Mexican Radio" to the darkness and solemn tones of "Factory", Wall Of Voodoo delivers the goods over and over in every song.
