The Bongos were different enough from their contemporaries that Drums Along the Hudson has dated remarkable little since it was released in 1982, sounding less like "new wave" than a simply timeless example of smart, edgy pop. The joyous charge of the opening cut, "In the Congo," is pure glorious sugar rush, "The Bulrushes" is fraught with seductive mystery, "Three Wise Men" very nearly beats the Feelies at their own high-tension game, and "Glow in the Dark" is one of the most charmingly off-kilter love songs ever.

Drums Along the Hudson is one of the 10 or 20 best albums of the 80s. It's probably one of the 100 best albums of all time. Perfect pop made by wild jungle boys. I discovered the Bongos when a friend's band opened for them at a tiny club in West Haven CT in 1983. I'd never heard of them but was mesmerized from the first moment. This album is the apotheosis of everything that made their music so great. Super-short spiky songs, oblique yet evocative lyrics backed by punchy guitar work
