I was anxious, I'll admit. I've been a fan of They Might Be Giants since Birdhouse In Your Soul was a hit in 1990, but when I found out they were releasing a children's album I was a tad concerned. Would this album be immature, just a little too silly? Anyway, being a fan, I bought the album from Amazon for completist's sake.
Granted, some of the songs are a little daft - Violin, for example - but a lot of the songs are cheerful, catchy and musically quite good: Four Of Two and The House At The Top Of The Tree are two of my favourites. The CD is enhanced, which means you can listen to the songs and interact with and watch various pieces of animation on your PC. This feature, presumably, is for the benefit of youngsters, but - hey! - I'm 27 and have just spent the best part of 30 minutes bursting balloons, spilling grocery and feeding potato chips to a cartoon mouse.
If you're a fan of They Might Be Giants, or if you have kids and want to introduce them to music other than, I don't know, Bob The Builder or S Club Juniors, or if you simply want to buy an album that's unusual and different without it being Kid A by Radiohead, then I strongly recommend No! by They Might Be Giants. You will love it.
