On their major-label debut, Flood, They Might Be Giants exchange quirky artiness for unabashed geekiness and a more varied and polished musical attack. Although the album contains two of the group's finest singles in "Birdhouse in Your Soul" and "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)," the overall record is uneven, since the group's hooks aren't quite as sharp as before and the humor is either too geeky or leavened with awkward social statements like "Your Racist Friend." Even with its faults, Flood has a number of first-rate songs, and it's a strong addition to their catalog, even if it isn't as weirdly intoxicating as its predecessors.
Buy it, definitely.
In general, listening to They Might Be Giants is an experience that can only be topped by hang gliding off a dragon into a mound of teddy bears and fairy dust.
Lol, Second Flood
Second Flood makes for good times. As far as I can tell this is exactly the same as the other version..
Awesome, this record got me through high school and I lettered in Track & Cross Country too!
