Must-have Boingo CD
Posted by: eriq73 from: Austin, Tx on
This CD is definately worth having in my collection as it has a ton of deep cuts not heard on any of the compilation/ best of CD's. "Insects" has the feel of a Danny Elfman / Tim Burton film score, "Whole day Off" (recently re-released as a live track on the Anthology set) has the twisted humor Elfman portrays so often in his lyrical style-
"Have you seen my girlfriend?
She lives in a pig pen
Have you seen my girlfriend?
I can't seem to find her
Perhaps she is hiding
Underneath a blade of grass
Lets take the whole day off.. "

The music here is very kinetic. The opening track is somewhat slow/soft compared to most of the album. It's still very involved - there's 8 band members, including the vocalist who plays rhythm guitar. Some of the band members are credited with multiple instruments, so there's lots to hear on this album. And it's not just a few standout songs. It's the whole album. Even when the qty and type of instruments are stripped down a tad, there's still lots to hear. You could say this album is made for people with ADD. I don't have ADD nor do I know anyone who does, but I'd imagine some people would listen to this and be like "WHAT?!".
