Album Review

Twenty-six monsters, one for each letter of the alphabet, are appraised in this offbeat and humorous album. A young child introduces each track with an epigrammatic description of the creature. The beasties range from legendary personalities like Dracula to more modern characters like E.T. and such ghost story stars as Headless Horseman to crypto-zoological question marks as Sasquatch. The music is largely simple, with quirky guitar duets or similarly simple instrumentation. The effect is one of exaggerated and mock creepiness that mates with the verses well. David Fair gave us the lyrics and lends his sonorous tone to much of the material, sometimes with Jad. The CD insert is decorated with children's illustrations. The album is delightful, unique, and deserves to be a classic with children and adults that still like Halloween and Godzilla movies.

Horrible Album

I do a kids radio show on Saturday mornings....I listen on song and accidently didn't listen other ones...and bought the album because of all the titles... being monsters and all... boy do I wish I had...every song is the same ridiculous thing... really really really bad stuff...wish we could return this one. DONT BUY IT

DO buy this album

do buy this album. are you really gonna take advice from someone who has nothing better to do on a saturday morning than to play kids records on a station noone listens to? the other reviewer's a fool, this albums is amazing...and educational. what better way to learn the alphabet than by singing songs about monsters. the fairs are geniuses. just ask daniel johnston, their old acid buddy.

Musician, instrumentalist, and artist David Fair is best known as the co-founder of Half Japanese, the long-running experimental rock band fronted by his brother, Jad Fair. The Fair brothers, born in Michigan, are believed to have been living in Maryland when they launched Half Japanese as a bedroom project in 1975. The band's music was founded on the notion that anyone could make music if they pleased, and their early recordings made clear that neither David or Jad had much use for traditional rules...
