UAIOE is industrial rock group KMFDM's fourth album. It was released in 1989. UAIOE began a KMFDM tradition of using five-letter words as album titles, a tradition that survived until the release of Hau Ruck in 2005.



Vocalist Raymond Watts had left the group midway through the recording of the previous album, Don't Blow Your Top. Multi-instrumentalists Sascha Konietzko and En Esch brought drummer Rudolph Naomi on board, who had previously worked with the group in the mid-1980s, along with reggae vocalist Morgan Adjei. UAIOE was recorded in Hamburg, Germany at M.O.B. Studios.


UAIOE was released in 1989 on Cash Beat Records in Germany, on Deutschland Strikeback Records in the United Kingdom, and on Wax Trax! Records in the United States. A remastered reissue of UAIOE was released September 12, 2006, featuring new liner notes and photos of the band.


UAIOE received somewhat positive reviews. Andy Hinds of AllMusic said the work sounded more complete than previous releases, and called "More & Faster" the band's first classic song. Robert Christgau said the album was "groovier than the noise norm" and said the guest vocalists "add personality".
