THE SPINE is They Might Be Giants's tenth album.
Like a lot of good albums (OK Computer is one I can think of) it takes at least three complete rotations of the songs to really see how good the whole thing is.

I got this CD because it has the single "Damn Good Times" on it. Another great song I like is "Stalk of Wheat". Solid album from TMBG.Published 9 months ago by Frank

I have been a longtime fan of TMBG, since the "Flood" days, and I've seen the Johns in concert more than any other band. A curmudgeonly older fan, as another reviewer put it. Read morePublished on November 9, 2007 by Brian A. Schar
`The Spine' is another wonderfully eclectic offering from TMBG, with rich musical arrangements and extraordinary lyrics. Many tracks seem simultaneously familiar and new. Read morePublished on October 10, 2007 by Grimnebulin
TMBG keep getting better--and even way better. The Spine exceeds my expectations. I fell in love with spines.
I hadn`t listened to any TMBG since "Factory Showroom". Read more
