    Divorced from their HBO series, the songs have room to stretch a little, only occasionally sacrificing context. [May 2008, p.98]
  2. I feel like Flight of the Conchords could do something interesting if they embraced the absurdity of their act and didn’t stand aloof from it at an ironic distance.
  3. But as a musical concern, the Conchords can’t hold a candle to [Tenacious] D, a shortcoming that’s much more apparent on this homonymous CD than it is on TV.

    Stunningly original understated ironic musical parody that lampoons the two musicians in a band that are the biggest social losers since Stunningly original understated ironic musical parody that lampoons the two musicians in a band that are the biggest social losers since Charlie Brown came on the scene 50 years ago!

    It's a good album, but anybody who's familiar with the band's live act (especially their HBO special) should realize that It's a good album, but anybody who's familiar with the band's live act (especially their HBO special) should realize that FOTC's comedy comes not from funny references but their perfect comic timing. They've sacrificed much of the awesome awkwardness of their live act for slick production, which kills much of the humor, like a funny stand-up comedian forced into a merely decent sitcom. Fans of the show will like it, but both the show and album suffer from this overproduction. Full Review »

    Incredibly funny, something that everyone should be able to enjoy.
