AllMusic Review by

This four-disc box set from Collectables includes four of the groundbreaking, new wave/punk outfit’s early offerings, including New Traditionalists (1981), Shout (1984), Oh, No! It's Devo (1982), and Duty Now for the Future (1979). By no means complete (1978’s Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and 1980’s Freedom of Choice remain Devo’s finest moments), Collectables Classics provides a nice snapshot of the band in its prime.
