Review: The B-52s Anthology

David Greenberger reviews Nude on the Moon — The B-52s Anthology. It's a two-CD set that covers more than 20 years of songs from this pop band from Athens, Ga. Their sound has always been playful, space age, and loopy. Many of their songs became party anthems, like "Rock Lobster", "Love Shack", and "Private Idaho." Greenberger says this set is a great collection of songs from a surprisingly inventive and resilient career.
