5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive They Might Be Giants album, 12 Aug. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Lincoln (Audio CD)
People who have some They Might Be Giants in their CD collection can be put into one of two categories: they are either fanatics who'd happily purchase anything under TMBG's name, or they're people who own (but rarely listen to) the album Flood, simply because they were after that one song (Birdhouse In Your Soul). This is a shame, really, since this album, Lincoln, which in 1989 pushed U2's The Joshua Tree off the top of the US indie chart, is one of the most important alternative rock albums ever produced.
Ana Ng, the album's opener, is a delightful tune, and, perhaps unusually for a song so catchy, it does not get on your nerves after repeated listens. Other highlights include: They'll Need A Crane, which contains the best middle-8 section since Costello's Oliver's Army; the singalong Shoehorn With Teeth; Kiss Me, Son Of God; Where Your Eyes Don't Go; dammit every song (with the exception of maybe The World's Address) is great.
In a nutshell: this album is hugely recommended.
