  • Summary: The second album for the New Zealand-based duo features songs that appeared in the latest season of their HBO series.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 22
  2. Negative: 0 out of 22
  1. Even shorn of their comedic context, the best of these tracks still have the power to rupture internal organs at 20 paces.
  2. While memories of the accompanying visuals of the jokes from the series helps, it is by no means strictly necessary to enjoy the humor and musicianship of Freaky.
  3. Freaky succeeds not just because it's hysterically funny, but because the songs themselves are authentically good, with hooks and melodies and instrumentation solid enough that you'd go back and listen again even if there were no jokes at all. [Fall 2009, p.58]
  4. Much like the show’s second season, this second disc fails to build on its predecessor, rehashing the same digs at male bravado, emotional insecurity, and musical eccentricity.
  5. 60
    Like the second series of their HBO sitcom, from which most of the tracks here are culled,...Freaky feels a little rushed, but there's still plenty to love. [Dec 2009, p. 95]
  6. On the second full-length album from this comedy duo, electro beats and white-soul croons bump against jokes about cannibalism and girl troubles--in other words, nothing terribly new for these smart Kiwi guys.
  7. As much of Freaky wallows in the jokes, the record runs out of ideas astonishingly early.
