They Might Be at it Again
Here Comes the 123s is another excellent addition the TMBG children's catalog, and to their entire catalog as well. Although the songs on here are meant for little kids, there are a number that teenagers and adults could love as well. "Apartment 4" only has a children's song facade; it is really a sweet love song. The drawback to "Apartment 4" is that, because it is a kids song, it is short. I feels like it ends at the halfway point of the song. The other real winner for non-kids is "Nonagon", which is just a flatout great song. Kids will love this album, and teenagers and adults will enjoy it, and appreciate some songs (such as Apartment 4, which is indeed subtle in its real intent) in a way kids cannot, making it work as an adult song just as well.
yay!!!! its finaly out I want to buy it and I'm way to old for kid songs!!
Decent, but not as good as their other children's albums
"Here Come the 123s" is They Might Be Giants third album for children, following "No!" and "Here Come the ABCs." Hopefully, they'll take a break at this point until they can reach the level of inspiration behind "No!", which was clearly the best of the three. There are some great songs here ("One Dozen Monkeys," "Infinity," and "Nonagon" being the standouts), but a lot of it falls flat ("Ten Mississippi" and "The Secret Life of Six" aren't interesting enough to be b-sides). That said, mediocre They Might Be Giants is better than nearly all other children's albums out there, and my kids love just about everything here. Just be sure you turn it off before you get to the Disney shill tracks at the end.
