from the two shy guys of They Might Be Giants. Uncompromising, yet attempts to function as a normal pop album. It fails, much to everyones delight. Released when the "Shuffle" button on your CD player was a novelty, they invite you to shuffle it so that the 20 or so little odd five to twenty second snippets comprising "Fingertips" pop up around the regular three minute ditties. In this case, youll be listening to say, "Narrow Your Eyes", a relatively straightforward song, and then suddenly,"...whats that blue thing, doing here?" issues from the speakers only to continue on innocently with the next song as if the part about the blue thing was a hallucination. So, it's fun in that sense. Doesn't quite have that classic feel of "Lincoln" or "Flood", but still a very good, of course clever installment in the TMBG catalog. However, it should be noted that this was the last TMBG cd I ever bought. Im still not sure why.

Who could not like this album? Every song on Apollo 18 is a work of art, from the catchy and upbeat "The Statue Got me High" to the eclectic mix that is "Fingertips" to the more pop-like "See the Constellation". A few of my favorites from Apollo 18 are "Dinner Bell", "I Palindrome I", and "The Statue Got me High", but every song on this album is a work to be admired and enjoyed. If you are going to buy one TMBG album, buy this one.

Apollo 18 is the best They Might Be Giants album to date. Why? For one, all of the songs are consistent and are fun to listen to. And I must mention FINGERTIPS next. There is no other song like it in the world. It is a collection of several musical styles with a higher than normal amount of TMBG lunacy. You must hear it to appreciate it. Then there is THE STATUE GOT ME HIGH. Where else can you hear the lyric "Your turn to view the stone and then your turn to burn." Classic TMBG stuff there. While the lyrics of TURN AROUND are grim, it is a song the whole family can sing along and enjoy. It is just so much fun! There is so much to say about this album and I can't mention it all. This is a must have for fans and music collectors alike.

This album is a musical learning experience. This was my first exposure to TMBG and the songs on this album are truly genius. Only artists coming off the other side of the brain can produce such masterpieces...of course, we all have to be willing to switch over to the other side of our brains for a little while to appreciate it...but that's fine by me. TMBG has a unique knack for creating equally catchy lyrics and music...you'll find quirky little phrases floating around your head all day...such as "he's even got a twin like me!" from "My Evil Twin." "She's Actual Size", "I Palindrome I", "Fingertips" and "Mammal" are the highlights...I feel the big spotlight however should be aimed directly at the brilliance of "Dinner Bell." Based on the experiments of Russian scientist Pavlov...this piece is musically mindboggling and lyrically perfect. "Apollo 18" is art...and don't let anyone convince you otherwise!

They Might Be Giants have done a lot of great work, but this is still the CD I return to again and again. It is filled with wry lyrics set to catchy music, and the "high concept" (requiring use of your CD player's shuffle-play or random-play feature) easily provokes a big grin. At the end of the disc are some 20 assorted short tracks - almost splinters, really - designed to be mixed into the longer songs. Although I rarely actually *do* this, the idea is amusing in any case.
My favorite might be "My Evil Twin," containing a shopping list of the subversive twin's characteristics, climaxing with the unforgettable conclusion that "...he's even got a twin like me." Also memorable is "Turn Around," a jazzy stomp with its stirring chorus: "Turn around, turn around - there's a human skull on the ground." Two high-energy cuts, "The Statue Got Me High" and "See the Constellation," will have you dancing around the living room with their irresistibly revved-up guitars, and I could go on and on. Almost every track is a winner, and everyone will have individual favorites.
Some have complained that the dynamic duo of TMBG are too sly for their own good. Well, until we have a surfeit of such cleverness running around, let's just enjoy these sharp guys and their feverish imagination.

Apollo 18, overall, is better than Flood. However the songs on Flood are better than the songs on Apollo 18. Anywho, they are both fabulous albums and should definitley be checked out by those who like humor and music incorporated together. They are reminisant (Ouch, check out that spelling!) of Weird Al, and dare I say... Frank Zappa. Some of their songs are crap, yes, but more than often their songs are realy freaken good. Check them out.

This TMBG album has some wide and glaring weak spots. It is certainly not the peak of their career, but there are still moments of genius, as in "I Palindrome I", "The Statue Got Me High", and even "Mammal."
Skip this one if it's your first purchase, though, and get "Flood" instead. It can be rather hard to digest in places.
