Brilliant and at a bargain price
on 14 June 2007
I cannot recommend this album highly enough. It is one of those rare things, an album for children that can stand repeat adult listening. In fact, I would rate it up there with 'Flood' and 'Don't Let's Start' for tunes, inventiveness and pure, silly fun. But it's not all fun, kids. There's some serious learning going on too. Thanks to 'The Alphabet of Nations', my children can now recite a country beginning with every letter of the alphabet, a skill that's sure to prove itself invaluable in their adult lives.
The album comes with a free DVD with some wacky videos, and puppet versions of the two Johns. But if the last time you saw They Might Be Giants was in the video for Bird House in Your Soul in the eighties, look away at the end as you might be shocked. Luckily they transform into weeble-like characters for the bonus 'Higgly Town Heroes' video at the end. Phew!
