Freedom of Choice is the third studio album by the American new wave band Devo. It was originally released in May 1980 on the label Warner Bros. The album contained their biggest hit to date, "Whip It". Freedom of Choice was recorded between October 1979 and early 1980, at the Record Plant in Hollywood, California. The album saw the band moving in more of an overt synthpop direction, even though guitars still played a prominent role.

Freedom of choice Is what you got Freedom of choice. Then if you got it, you don't want it Seems to be a rule of thumb Don't be tricked by what you see You got two ways to go. I'll say it again, in the land of the free Use your freedom of choice Freedom of choice. Freedom of choice Is what you got Freedom of choice. In ancient Rome There was a poem About a dog Who found two bones He peeked at one He licked the other He went in circles Then he dropped dead. Title track from the 1980’s album (3rd one in their career) is also the last single from it. "Freedom Of Choice" Track Info. Written By Gerald Casale & Mark Mothersbaugh. Recorded At Record Plant, Hollywood, California. Release Date December 29, 1980.

Written-By – Debbie Smith, Sue Schmidt. Freedom Of Choice ‎(LP, Album, Promo).

It contains Devo's most well-known song, "Whip I. This album is the third that they made in 78-81, and is an important album in their discography. The themes of the lyrics and sound style Devo's music was affiliated with the synth pop movement of the 1980's, but their sound was more unique and distinct than the rest of the synth pop.

With Freedom of Choice, Devo completed their transition into a full-fledged synth-pop group, producing arguably their most musically cohesive effort in the process. Everything is played with a cool, polished precision that mirrors the stylized uniformity of the band's visuals; the dissonance is more subdued than in the past, and the uptight rhythms are no longer jarring, instead locking the band into a rigidly even keel

Freedom of Choice starts off with the offbeat, Girl U Want, and right away, the strengths and weaknesses of the album are revealed. Devo manage to make Girl U Want a very catchy song, opting for adequate simplicity over a mess of complexities. However, different elements are more widely utilized on Freedom of Choice than have been on previous releases.
