Product Description

This acclaimed Kiwi novelty band follow the release of their six-track Grammy Award-winning CD EP "The Distant Future" with their full-length debut. Features fully fleshed-out and professionally recorded versions of the duo's concerts and TV favorites. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement's trademark acoustic guitars lead the blitz, backed by a diverse array of instrumentation and production technique. If amazing, delightful, and hilarious is your idea of funny, then prepare for undisappointment. These fifteen songs pay homage to Pet Shop Boys, censorship, Marvin Gaye, sexism, Shabba Ranks, and backhanded compliments.

Amazon.com

Anyone familiar with cultish comedy series Flight of the Conchords will be aware of the wonderful songs that the hapless New Zealand duo Bret and Jemaine concoct for each episode. Tackling all genres, from hip hop and soul to glam rock, the duo create highly original and well-produced tracks that typically satirise the very genre they?re imitating. This album collects together many of the show?s best musical moments, many of them subtly revamped. "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros" and "Boom" illustrate the pair?s hilarious 'rap' skills. "Think About It" parodies socially minded soul visionaries such as Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, "Bowie" satirises the 70s icon (especially his prodigious drug use), while "Inner City Pressure" mimics the Pet Shop Boys. Two of the most memorable songs from the series--"The Prince of Parties" and "The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)"--are also both present, making this the definitive FOTC compilation. The humour ranges from offbeat to downright daft, but there's nothing laughable about the production, which is mostly first class. It's true they could have given us a few new songs, but then how many comedy albums can you repeatedly rewind and find yourself not only laughing, but dancing too?--Paul Sullivan

The really funny thing is, that the humor aside, this is just a really good album. (CD... project... whatever...)
If you aren't listening to the lyrics and just have it on the background you'll find the rhythms and sounds a little retro and old school sometimes.. but just extremely well done.
Unlike lots of comedy music acts, these guys are actually incredibly talented musicians with an incredible gift for song writing and musicality.
It's true what a couple reviews have said, that much of it is funnier and fresher in sound and and feel in the much more pared down live acoustic versions.
But it is kind of apples and oranges to me... and it all makes a nice salad.
I've found myself humming one or another of these songs for the past two weeks and, again-and-again - it is what I reach for to put in while I'm just surfing the web or whatever.
Often I'm not even listening intently to the lyrics and laughing any more... I'm just not thinking about it and grooving to the groove.

Best CD I've bought in a long time really.

This summer was all about Flight of the Conchords. Forget about Rhianna and her umbrella, or shawty's gitten low, and all those other groups and performers. Give me the Rhymenacerous vs. the Hiphopotamus any day, they can spit rhymes like hot FIRE!!! Not only do they have a good beat, they're clever. My only criticism is what happenend to "Who Like's to Rock the Party?" The song that was continuously attempted to be sung on the show but was never finished. "Pencils in the Wind" is missing as well, but it's still one of the best records of 2008.

Such a fun album! Very clever lyrics and interesting subjects; from living broke in a big city to the mystery of lovely hermaphrodite ladies, or just saying goodbye to a sexy coworker. I also learned a valuable lesson-don't just assume you will get to score with a man just because he's in a two man novelty band, he may not be ready for Business Time. In all seriousness- a lot of the harder profanity is edited out which was nice. Love Flight of the Conchords, but I like things I wouldn't be ashamed if my mother found. I heard about this band through a friend who made me watch Jenny on YouTube. At first it was meh, but the more I listened the more I liked and realized how excellent and unique these two are. For people who like Weird Al- this is rated R, but there are a couple of songs that a very clean. If you don't care about any of that, GET THIS ALBUM!

Really funny for someone just hearing it for FIRST time...my favorite track'S are the Robot song, Inner City Pressure, Prince Of Parties, Think About It, Ladies of the World, The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room), and BOWIE (Bowie's nipple antenna ha ha ha)!!! Ha ha ha! Although, EVERY track has something CLEVER and UNIQUE to say that just makes you LAUGH. I like them ALL but as a girl I do not really like Business Time, Leggy Blonde, and Boom. On top of everything, the album art is cool AND the music is good even without the comedy. I'd like to point out that i had to pay for the album 2 TIMES because the cloud player malfunctioned but IT WAS WORTH IT.

Love me some Flight of the Conchords but hadn't purchased this album. To be honest, I was afraid I wouldn't like it...I mean, sometimes it's hard to imagine something you love getting better ;)

Well, this album has been great...listen to it over and over...sometimes twice in a row... great for work or gym. I've laughed out loud, I've replayed...the tunes are so catchy, layered, funky, funny, MUSICAL. These guys are just so talented.

So happy!

Bought this as a birthday gift. It was a hit! We loved the sound quality and great mix of songs. The fun play on words and insight on the angst of their dating lives is perfection. Highly recommended for anyone who needs a good laugh.

If I may...I'm just going to copy/paste the same review I posted for their other album "I Told You I Was Freaky."

If you're looking into a FotC CD on Amazon, then you already know what they're all about, and this review is not going to sway you one way or the other. Stop looking at reviews and just add the dang album to your cart.

Let's face it: The Flight of the Conchords are not a band, they're comedians. Unfortunately, these audio only songs do lose a little something when you don't see Bret and Jemaine taking themselves totally seriously with these ridiculous songs. Don't get me wrong, these songs are absolutely funny, but only if you're already a fan. There isn't really much difference between the songs from here to the versions heard on the HBO series. So my recommendation is this, if you love the guys and you love the songs and the HBO show, then go ahead and buy the album (or more accurately Season 1 soundtrack). If you haven't seen the show or the Conchords' shtick before, then see it and judge whether or not you like it. Also, there are a few notable omissions from the disc:

I'm Not Crying (On the Distant Future EP)
If You're Into It (Also on the Distant Future EP)
Albi the Racist Dragon
Bret You Got It Goin On (Available from iTunes as a pre-order only bonus track, too late)
Frodo, Don't Wear the Ring
Sello Tape (I love this one, I wish they put it on there)
Cheer Up Murray
Song for Sally
Mermaids
Jenny (hillarious)

Also, they could have done without Leggy Blonde (not very funny). O well, it's still nice to have for posterity's sake so that you can sing along and laugh with all of your other Conchord's fan friends.
