Uncut (magazine) - p.79
3 stars out of 5 -- "The earlier material fares best, notably Kate Pierson's kookily obsessive pleading on 'Give Me Back My Man' and the solid funk groove on 'Mesopotamia'..."

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. ~ James Christopher Monger
