Good, but not worth $25 - Use eBay

Apollo 18 is a great album, and personally my favorite TMBG album, but I cannot believe the price. Sure, the Fingertips songs are funny, but not worth a dollar for ten seconds apiece. I got this album in very good condition for about $5 including shipping and handling, and I advise others do the same. You don't get it instantly, but saving $20 is worth another week and a half.

Arguably the best of TMBG.

I agree that this shouldn't be $25. In fact, if you HAVE to buy it here, buy it by song, but skip Fingertips. While a fun romp through many genres, it's lackluster. Now, the rest of album. The best stuff, ever. Dig My Grave starts with a calming tone, then fires into Flans screaming into the mic. I Palindrome I is Linnell's standard fare, and is one of his best works. She's Actual Size is akin to Whistling In The Dark (see Flood), and My Evil Twin and Mammal use few sounds, but are so catchy due to their lyrics. The Statue Got Me High is positively brilliant, Spider is fun and addictive, The Guitar is a quiet, groovy tune like Lie Still, Little Bottle (Lincoln), Dinner Bell is a showcase of Linnell's amazing lung capacity and melodic song writing, Narrow Your Eyes is again perfectly melodic, Hall of Heads is a creepy narrative (though hard to get into at first), Which Describes How You're Feeling on Apollo 18 is a very catchy version, completely different from the more powerful demo on Then. See the Constellation is a great rock track, If I Wasn't Shy is sung as it sounds it would be, Turn Around is much like Whistling as well (and as dark), and Hypnotist of Ladies is led by a chainsaw guitar and sung as if Flans is trying to hypnotize. Fingertips, as said, is an alright venue of the Johns' mastery of different genres, and the instrumental Space Suit is just beautiful. A must-own.


Let me just be the 200th person to say it: iTunes has made a terrible mistake in the pricing of this album. Clearly anyone who buys it doesn't realize the price. This is a four-star album, which I will give one star because of the retail stupidity taking place.


Formed: 1983 in Boston, MA

Genre: Alternative

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...
