The album doesn't really have a good flow to it, it definitely seems like it could of been assembled better. The album does seem awfully samey, don't get me wrong, there are a lot of different type of songs, but oddly they still seem overall to have the same feeling, for someone naturally inclined towards a band like Devo eg. Sometimes the personality of the band can become a substitute for a decent hook.
The final and largest flaw is "Pink Pussycat". Don't get me wrong, I actually do enjoy the song but it's ANNOYING as hell some say hell contains torture unimaginable, I say it's annoying , and there's been more than one occasion where the skip button on my ipod has been pushed. Blame Mark Mothersbough. He just sings it in such a high pitched, irritating manner, this was probably intentional, take that as you will.
The world is a negative place though and we need some positive thoughts, otherwise our brains will weigh us down, weighing the earth down and causing as to plummet into the sun. And, well, "Whip It" gets one part of that right. Devo are goofy, nerdy, awkward -- all those things.
But framed in that young video media, it seems forced, even contrived. But on Duty Now for the Future , Devo fly their freak flag in the most honest way possible. They were nerdy first, and then they made music. It wasn't about creating an aesthetic; it was about being true to their crooked selves.
So no wonder the album is rife with sci-fi paranoia and doomed futures. Right from the opening track, "Devo Corporate Anthem" -- a nod to Rollerball , speaking of goofy -- it establishes a tone. The lofty yet synthesized horns of that brief intro set up an album with high walls around Mark Mothersbough and his fellow cogs, as they fight within a dehumanizing machine to take it all down.
It may sound antiquated now -- hell, it might even have been close to that back in -- but the band's execution is flawless. Flawless because not only do they take it all on without the slightest bit of irony, but also because they show they are a tight as hell band. Devo's greatest strength was their inability to sit still. He also states an oddly prescient worry here when he sings, "I got a feeling the future is going to be maintenance free. The unassuming, palm-muted guitar of "Blockhead" is outfitted with awkward twists of guitar and spinning keyboard notes.
