The best record made by this promising band, Fig. 14 has the comic, campy qualities that made Human Sexual Response such a fun band, including "Jackie Onassis" and a screwy cover of "Cool Jerk." Bangor's singing might get a little irritating, but Rich Gilbert's big guitar always saves the day. In many ways, Fig. 14 is a classic piece of early-'80s new wave rock.
