Album review: Flight Of The Conchords - 'I Told You I Was Freaky' (Sub Pop)
Come get your sugalumps...
8 / 10
It’s the CD-based return of the socially inept Kiwi strummers, containing all the best songs from Series Two: ‘Hurt Feelings’
. 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”.
