AllMusic Review by

One would have thought that after 34 years, America’s premier dance party band would have released a slew of live albums, but believe it or not, With the Wild Crowd!: Live in Athens, GA, represents the first official, non-bootleg live set from the B-52’s to date. Recorded in 2011, the 18-song set offers up a nice mix of old and new, blazing through beloved standbys like “Love Shack,” “Rock Lobster,” “Roam,” and “Planet Claire” with more gusto than one would expect from a band halfway into its third decade. Anyone who's ever been to a B-52’s show know that Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, and Cindy Wilson never phone it in, and now they’ve finally got the goods to prove it.
