  1. This is top-flight stuff, and not just because I needed to glancingly reference the band’s name before signing off.
  2. Many songs play out like shared "private" jokes but succeed all the time. [Spring 2008, p.75]
  3. Best of all, the Conchords never force their hand, frequently letting bizarre sonic references and awkward lyrical fumbles serve as unspoken punchlines.

    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.
