Flight of the Conchords: I Told You I Was Freaky CD

SKU ID #108464
$15.98
While Flight of the Conchords first hammered out their reputation from behind the relative safety of acoustic guitars, blithely billed as a ''folk comedy'' act, nowadays their musical style runs rampant, unchecked. Judging from the range displayed on their sophomore album I Told You I Was Freaky, Flight of the Conchords have yet to unearth a genre which can withstand their artistry. Unflinching in their lyrical stance, sophisticated with their arrangements, crafting melodies which always lodge firmly in the frontal lobe: Flight of the Conchords have here created 13 best-selling ringtones, humbly masquerading as songs. Their rhymes are fearless, their thesauruses dog-eared. Only cool, confident specimens of manhood such as these could drop three-dollar vocabulary busters like ''dungarees'' and ''pantaloons'' while still mesmerizing the ladies with their undulating ''Sugalumps.'' Vivid imagery? Check: The ardent ''Angels'' should spur listeners to think twice the next time they consider catching a snowflake on their tongues. Better still, the amorous odyssey of the album’s zenith, ''We’re Both in Love with a Sexy Lady,'' unfolds before the listener's very ears in real time; Flight of the Conchords are making history, and You! Are! There! I Told You I Was Freaky is, among a great many other things, a genre-tripping tour de force and includes three songs from the second series of their popular and award-winning/nominated HBO TV show which are otherwise as yet unreleased (''Rambling Through the Avenues of Time,'' ''Too Many Dicks (On the Dance Floor)'' and ''You Don’t Have to Be a Prostitute'').

        FOTC concert was the best way to hear these guys. The opening comic was horrid, but once she left the stage, we were all good. I came prepared with my own hand gestures to rapidly match the binary solo with sign language counting. I perfected it for weeks because it is not as easy as you may think. Finally, at the concert I hoped to start a new fad and raised my hands above my head to salute The Distant Future.

        Sadly my seat was on the top row and the wall was behind me. Nobody saw my beautiful hand chant 00000001, 00000011, etc.

        Shortly after, some idiot in the crowd yelled "Freebird!" Bret and Jermaine played that guy's request for him.

        I hope there is a 3rd season, but don't see how they can overcome that last episode. I guess the will come back as a couple of old guys in a boy band.

          Comments about this product:

          I Told You I Was Freaky could also be considered a conceptual album, as many of the songs deal with relationships, as well as the pursuit and fallout caused by them. And where the self-titled 2008 album was largely composed of folk songs, the new album is much more musically exploratory, incorporating elements of R&B, electronica, disco, and hip-hop.

          To Dick, the Crazy Australian, "Rambling Through the Avenues of Time,'' ''Too Many Dicks (On the Dance Floor)" and "You Don't Have to Be a Prostitute" were NOT released. They were featured on the show, but never released on iTunes like the other tracks. You couldn't buy those three tracks anywhere before this CD. Sure, you could have recorded them off the TV show or the DVDs, but they were never officially released. Overall, this CD is awesome. I just wished there were more songs on it, I just can't get enough of the Conchords...

            Comments about this product:

            The main page is erroneous in the fact that it mentions the following: ("Rambling Through the Avenues of Time,'' ''Too Many Dicks (On the Dance Floor)" and "You Don't Have to Be a Prostitute") - are previously unreleased.

            Only "Rambling Through the Avenues of Time" is unreleased - the other two featured prominantly in the second season.
