iTunes Review

Explaining concepts like photosynthesis and velocity through song is no easy feat, but this quirky alt-pop duo succeeds wildly. They Might Be Giants are so good at presenting scientific principles in a kid-friendly format, you might have a hard time convincing your offspring that you found this band first. Tracks like “I Am a Paleontologist” and “Why Does the Sun Really Shine?” will convince kids that science is cool and have adults dying to don a lab coat too.

For Those Who Think They Can't Buy the Album as a Whole

Sorry, I shouldn't really review this because I haven't listened to the whole thing yet but for all of you complaining that you can only buy individual songs, try clicking on the "Here Comes Science" link at the top of the page. It refreshes with the option to buy the album for $15. Hope this helps.

I love TMBG because they make so many different sounds in one album. It shows they have lots of talent musically and still can be creative enough to appeal to any audience. This album isn't any exception, and with the introduction of videos to the whole iTunes album, it adds a level of depth that their past albums haven't had. Long live TMBG! Longer, anyway. Also, to all of you who rate the album one star because you don't like what iTunes is doing, STOP IT!! It makes it look like the album is bad! I was surprised to see a 3.5 overall, and it's because you people rate the albums based on iTunes' service, and not the actual album. If you have a complaint ADD IT TO THE END OF YOUR REVIEW.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Combining a knack for infectious melodies with a quirky sense of humor and a vaguely avant-garde aesthetic borrowed from the New York post-punk underground, They Might Be Giants became an unlikely alternative rock success story as they reinvented themselves throughout their career. Musically, John Flansburgh and John Linnell borrowed from everywhere, but this eclecticism was enhanced by their arcane sensibilities. The duo referenced everything from British Invasion to Tin Pan Alley, while making...
