This album has some great songs (Hurt Feelings, We're Both in Love with a Sexy Lady, You Don't Have to Be A Prostitute) while some are hard to get through (Demon Woman, Petrov). I love Flight of the Conchords and actually enjoyed season 2 (where all of these songs are featured) more than season 1 but I have to say the content of the show was stronger than the songs that came with it this time around. Much of the first season of the show was based around songs that they came up with long before they were one HBO. For the second season they had to write the show and entirely new songs all at once and the difference shows, some of the songs seem a bit rushed. Even so I think this album proves how creative these two guys really are. Jermaine and Bret still have a great subtle sense of humor and have created some truly catchy songs.

Hilarious! What more could you expect from Flight of the Conchords, this album is a release of songs from their second season HBO program. 'I Told You I Was Freaky' spreads it wings over different genres such as Folk, Techno, Hip-Hop/Rap, and Reggae all wrapped in a comedy blanket. This album with standout songs such as, "Hurt Feelings","Sugalumps","Carol Brown", "You Don't Have To Be A Prostitute", and "Rambling Through The Adventures of Time" this comedy-filled album is sure to be the hit of late 2009. The Vinyl copy includes a poster, download coupon for the entire album, and it includes the guitar chords for each song. Flight of the Conchords are so unique and original they can't be painted in a corner, they are constantly changing and developing. The only complaint I have about the album is that I wish that they included songs left off from the first season such as "Bret You've Got It Going On" and "Cheer Up Murray." To put it simply Flight of the Conchords are 'The Beatles' of Folk Comedy.

This album is a solid title with a very different feel than their first album. While attempting to branch out further than just two guitars and some jokes, the synth and mock-rap blows this CD up and makes songs like "Sugalumps" and "Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor" songs that will forever be hilarious and make me laugh everytime my Zune comes across 'em. Season 2 featured a GREAT lineup of songs...especially "You Don't Have to be a Prostitute", "Carol Brown" and "I Told You I Was Freaky". The only weak link in the album lies in the lyrics and delivery of "Petrov, Yelyena and Me" other than this very odd song, every song delivers laughs and surprisingly catchy hooks. Great Sophomore album for the Kiwis.

New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo is at it again with "I Told You I was Freaky". I hear the term "sophomore slump" thrown around on the interwebs when talking about this album. I feel that this labeling is unjustified. This album is great and packs in the comedy just like the first. Bret and Jemaine are spot on as they always are!

Here is a breakdown of each song.

Hurt Feelings: Great opener to the album. I love it when these guys rap!

Sugarlumps: The first time I heard this song on the show I was in tears. The Dave rap in the middle is enough to make anyone chuckle.

We're Both In Love With A Sexy Lady: This song pokes at the extremely lame trend of "talking songs" very funny.

I Told You I Was Freaky: I have a really hard time placing the genre of this song. The beginning of this song is pretty weak but the last 40 seconds or so really makes it awesome.

Demon Woman: Perfect song to come out right before Halloween!

Rambling Through The Avenues Of Time: Sounds an awful lot like Piano Man! Epic. I think at one point in time this song was called "Bret's Day" although the new title is much more epic!

Fashion Is Danger: I love the intentionally bad lyric repeating in this song! This song could have easily been a #1 hit single in 1985.

Petrov, Yelyena and Me: I love the short story songs! Especially when they are about cannibalism!

Too Many Dicks [On The Dancefloor]: Easily one of the best songs on the album! Once again the Dave inclusion is awesome!

You Don't Have To Be A Prostitute: I'm sure this song was inspired from the lyric in Inner City Pressure. Only this time in a Jamaican styling.

I don't want to sound like Mel but after this compilation was released, the amount of time I spend listening to it would lead most to think I'm freak 'ka'. Musically, this album simply jams. The care put into producing the sound, pitch, clarity, rhythm, and humor make this an awesome piece of listening art. There is a simplicity that makes this musically fun to listen to but also complex enough to make it tons of fun to play along to on keys or strings. People beat this up comparing it to the first album but if you compare either to any, and I mean any other CD you have bought in the past decade, you will need to search far and wide for more creativity and fun this CD delivers. The humor is dry and character driven so that it stimulates the best sarcastic and creative senses that made Seinfeld such a pleasure. If you are not listening carefully you'll simply miss some of the funniest material released in music. When Jemaine says "oh nooo what" in Were Both in Love with a Sexy Lady it makes me bust up. It actually pulls the listener into the song. This is Smothers Brothers meets Quincy Jones and the combo is great. If you do care about entertainment that is creative and funny; check it out. It is no wonder they stopped after the 2nd season. This much creativity, time in the studio, quality of production, obscure humor, TV contracts, would burn any 2 people out. I have thousands of albums in my collection. This album and the first release are in my permanant rotation. They simply put a smile on my face and a beat in my day. The first album is a great place to start. I hope this one is not the end. Keep it up guys; GREAT JOB! Thanks for making it fun.
