Album review: Flight Of The Conchords - 'I Told You I Was Freaky' (Sub Pop)

8 / 10 It’s the CD-based return of the socially inept Kiwi strummers, containing all the best songs from Series Two: ‘Hurt Feelings’, ‘Sugalumps’, ‘Friends’. Even shorn of their comedic context, the best of these tracks still have the power to rupture internal organs at 20 paces. OK, they have included ‘Petrov, Elena And Me’, which wasn’t funny the first time, but it’s counterbalanced by an affectionate Trapped In The Closet piss-take (‘We’re Both In Love’) and lush LOLsome twee-pop (‘Carol Brown’). What separates this from any other comedy pastiche is the quality of the songs. Undeniably the highlight is ‘Too Many Dicks’, especially for the blessed line “Make sure you know before you go/The dance floor bro-ho ratio”.
