Today's album of the day selection, came about in an unusual way. I was at the office and had a co-worker ask if I could play the They Might Be Giants album that had "Particle Man" on it...
I haven't listened to Flood in nearly 20 years... so I was kinda eager to hear a number of tracks on the album. If you haven't listened to it in a while, you may discover that it's a strange listen.
There's a number of tracks that are under 2 minutes... the sound and subject matter of the songs run the gamut. There's songs bout Racist Friends and Minimum Wage...
There's also a number of amazing songs like Birdhouse in Your Soul.
If you're unfamiliar with the band, this is possibly the best album to start with. It's possibly their most accessible album to jump into.
Stand out tracks:
- They Might Be Giants – Birdhouse In Your Soul
- They Might Be Giants – Istanbul (i think i saw a video for this on a cartoon)
- They Might Be Giants – Dead
- They Might Be Giants – Particle Man
