The Flight of The Conchords TV series was perhaps the one thing since Peep Show that I simply had to watch every week. Of course I didn't actually watch it every week as my attention span simply doesn't extend that far; I did buy the DVD though and watched the entire series over a weekend.

I don't throw this word about with gay abandon, but on this occasion it's more than justified. Flight of The Conchords was/is GENIUS. Quite apart from it being the funniest thing on TV, it's musical parodies were so spot on that you couldn't help but laugh. This CD brings the best of them to your home CD player in crystal clear stereo.

Be it the Pet Shop Boys stylings of Inner City Pressure, the Barry White-aping Buisness Time, the French Bossanova of Foux du Fafa or the Kraftwerk-baiting Robots, virtually every song hits that sweet spot. It's funny AND musically accomplished.

Of course I would have to admit that it's not quite the same as watching it on TV or catching their side-splitting stage show but if it falls short from the genius on display there, its only by the merest of fractions. As funny as it is catchy, this is simply sublime.

The only reason it's four stars not five is that it can't quite match the TV series.

Confession time. I haven't seen one frame of the TV series this album is lifted from ( I mean to put that erroneous oversight right by the way) Consequently I come at this album from a completely fresh perspective and judge it just on the strength of the songs.
These are parodies done in various styles - rap, R & B , singer songwriter and so on and are not only spot on musically with fulsome melodies and erudite arrangements but brilliant lyrically . You will laugh ...a lot. I was painting the first time I listened to this album and one couplet made me laugh so hard I dripped paint over the carpet , missing the dustsheet I had meticulously laid down. Thanks a lot guys.
It's all quality stuff but the highlights for me include the Pet Shop Boys pastiche "Inner City Pressure " ( "The manager Bevan starts to abuse me , chill out man I just want some muesli ".The bass line , widescreen synths and the use of the line "You just stand there" are uncanny. The rap p**s take "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenocerous" has priceless lines like "My lines are so potent they end this small segment and made all of the ladies in the area pregnant./Yeah sometimes my lyrics are sexist but all you lovely bitches should know I'm trying to correct this". It's "Motherflippin" ace.
On the earnest R&B overload of "Think About It" kids are killing each other with knifes and forks and getting disease from monkeys. "Ladies Of The World" is a flawless parody of smooth contemporary soul leading into the profane hard edged rap hilarity of "Mutha,uckas" . "The Prince Of Parties" is a wonderfully observed rip off of 60,s psychedelic music . I'm not entirely sure what "Leggy Blond" is pastiching - though over intense singer songwriters would be my guess.

Brett and Jermain can do little wrong and this soundtrack is a musthave for any FOTC fan.

Positives:
a) A lot of very funny and intelligent tracks that you can sing along to

Negatives:
a) Couple of glaring ommissions i.e. If you're into it, Sello-tape.
b) Slightly different words to that on the series/live shows. Not really a negative but some bits I liked from the live shows weren't on the cd ("Team-Building Exercise 99 from Business Time is different on the cd for example)
c) Bonus track is about 10secs long and is hardly a bonus.

Verdict:
Very good and don't regret buying it for a second. Get the feeling though, that the songs date to before they became a global success and any updates, modifications were not added to this cd which is slightly disappointing as well as some missing favourites. Altogether a good but not excellent album.

I have only seen glimpses of the TV series, but no matter. This a wonderfully silly album combining very witty lyrics, with accurately observed pastiches of every genre of music.

The standout track initially is "It's partytime", in which a self-delusional "luvvaman" serenades his "wo'man". It's the last time I'll ever try to seduce my wife wearing just my black socks!

The other tracks bear repeated listening, and the joys of the wonderfully crafted lyrics are soon to be relished and enjoyed.

BUY IT!

perfect album, but I'm hopng the reason they omitted some of the other great songs from the series is because they are planning a second album (probably at the end of the next series so it'll be a long way off).
Notable exclusions being - 'If you're in to it', 'Frodo, dont wear the ring', 'song for sally' and 'doggy bounce'. You can pick a couple of these tracks up on the 'Distant Future' EP.
Still, this album is fantastic and will have you laughing to yourself on the train all the way to the office.

Firstly, I really enjoyed the television series with which this is based upon. Initially I thought it would be difficult to imagine myself simply listening to the songs without the hilarious scenes that accompany these in the television series - flashes of brilliance which complement the story to well.

I found myself after many months, returning to these on YouTube and decided that I would buy this album. I agree completely with the reviewer that stated you don't need to have seen the series to enjoy this album - the album alone is a testament to the sheer beauty, comedy and complexity of the artists lyrical talents.

I think it would be an understatement to simply refer to this album as a piece of `comedy'. In many senses, each song describe a whole story or parody and at times is modern and though provoking, touching upon many cultural and social references.

The reason for four stars, I found after repeated listening, I would miss songs and on occasions, the sheer repetition made elements unfunny but don't let this put you off - this album is sublime in so many ways and laugh out funny.
