The song Re: Your Brains is worth the price of the Album and you get so many more hits like: Chiron Beta Prime, I Will, Stroller Town.

His music fits the times we are living in. Where a Beach Boys type song is turned into a song about baby strollers or my favorite (Re: Your Brains) about Zombies in the office world and all that want to do is eat your brains... Which in large part is true... Anyone can relate with lyrics like "Here's an FYI, your all gonna die screaming" Now tell me that is not an office job.

You'll love it.

I first discovered Jonathan's music a year ago. In fact, it was Flickr, the title track to this CD, that first caught my attention. Flickr was first released as a video and is a song about a series of un-related pictures off of the public domain photo sharing Flickr website. Absolute brilliance! Thing a Week was a project where Jonathan generated one new piece of music every week, for a year. I think he even quit his day job to do it. He recently finished and Thing a Week Two is the second CD in this four part series.

The thing I enjoy about Jonathan's music is his originality and penchant for intelligent humor. A lot of songs could easily be really good "songs"...however, a close listen to the lyrics will have you bent over laughing. His hilarious perspective on life coupled with his obvious musical talent makes Jonathan Coulton a force to be reckoned with.

The gems on this CD are Flickr; Dance, Soterios Johnson, Dance; Chiron Beta Prime (An outer space Christmas tale); Stroller Town (A Beach Boysesque tune on...strollers!); Re: Your Brains (A hilarious and incredibly catchy song about reasonable zombies). Jonathan even covers the Beatles', I Will, and does a really good take on Rick Springfield's Don't talk to Strangers.

Do yourself a favor and discover Jonathan Coulton. You will be glad you did!

Jonathan Coulton is a former engineer/code monkey turned singer/songwriter. His songs are a reflection of an over-educated person with a sick and twisted, yet sometimes touching, sense of humor. This album is probably my favorite, featuring my all time favorite song "RE: Your Brains", a song depicting what would happen if corporate America became zombies. Other favorites include "Chiron Beta Prime", a Christmas letter from the future when robots rule the world, and "Curl", the only song I know dedicated to the sport of curling. If you have never had the pleasure of hearing him, I recommend listening to "RE: Your Brains". That will tell you all you need to know.
