Cargo is the second studio album by Australian pop rock band Men at Work, which was released in April 1983. It peaked at No. 1 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart, No. 2 in New Zealand, No. 3 on the United States Billboard 200, and No. 8 on the United Kingdom Albums Chart. Four singles were released from the album, with "Overkill" being an international top 10 hit in Canada, Ireland, Norway, and US Billboard Hot 100.

All rights belong to SME and Men at Work. I'll say this much, I grew up with this also and remember this album cover when I was young. As a now much older person who better understands things in this way, the beauty of this art and other art coming from someone with this type of gift - the true beauty is that you create the meaning, and so do I and everyone else in our own special way.

Men at Work already had an album in the Top Ten when the Australian ensemble released Cargo, which continued the momentum gained by its record-setting debut. As ambitious and even more diversified than its initial salvo, the 1983 effort firmly established the band as new-wave pioneers-a group whose goofy playfulness, sharp hooks, brass accents, and memorable choruses helped define the decade’s landscape. While remaining true to the approach that garnered them a Grammy Award for Best New Artist, Men at Work expands the creative palette on Cargo by giving guitars a more prominent role and increasing the rhythmic textures. With the sweeping ballad Overkill and politically savvy cynicism of It’s a Mistake, the band furthered their radio domination and extended their run of Top 10 singles.

Again, the album is anchored by two extraordinary singles. Despite this growth, the remainder of Cargo is weighed down by filler. Doctor Heckyll and Mr. Jive" might be goofy fun and "High Wire" and "Blue for You" are tight pop songs, but the rest are simply pleasant, occasionally embarrassing ("I Like To,".

When Australian pop-rock quintet Men at Work’s second album, Cargo, arrived on April 29, 1983, it did so amid great expectations. Debut title Business as Usual had been released the previous year and wound up spending 15 weeks at the top of the . chart, despite their American label’s initial doubt over launching it at all. Cargo was already in the band’s past, having been completed in the middle of 1982 but held over because of its predecessor’s continuing success. Overkill, the second and best-selling single from Cargo, was an example of the exception proving the rule. While it features Hay’s Sting-like vocals, it didn’t carry Men at Work’s usual reggae touches, instead displaying a reflective, melancholy texture. ‘Overkill’ was written when was really starting to take off, Hay said in 2017. And I thought to mysel. Well, nothing’s going to be the same ever again.
