Editorial Reviews

Here Come the 123"s, the numerically inclined sequel to They Might Be Giants" winning CD/DVD collection Here Come the ABC"s, presents more fun and unmeant means to learn from John Flansburgh and also John Linnell. The album begins in mathematically specific fashion, beginning with the bouncy bossa nova of "Zeroes" prior to hitting one through ten and also then onto fancier numbers prefer 12 and infinity. "One Everything""s funky rock is one of TMBG"s typical brain-twisters, a little little zen ("there"s just one everything") and a little bit immediate ("please clean your room/we share the exact same omniverse"). Many type of of the various other songs are just as fun, but feel more like traditional kid"s fare than Here Come the ABC"s did, and should be knowledgeable on the DVD for their complete, quirky impact. That shelp, story songs prefer "Triops Has Three Eyes" and also "One Dozen Monkeys," and also movement songs such as "Ooh La! Ooh La!" are never before much less than adorable. However, as Here Come the 123"s" numbers get greater, the album builds momentum. After gaining basics choose "Ten Mississippi" out of the means, on songs prefer "Nonagon," the Johns obtain down to the type of smart kookiness and purposeful silliness that fans of all eras have actually involved intend. Seven gets two songs: "Seven Days a Week" is an anti-reveille complete of laziness and also trumpets, and is a singalengthy favorite in the making. "Salso," meanwhile, imagines a human being where number sevens can ring the doorbell and also hang out for awhile eating cake. "Nine Bowls of Soup""s bowl-balancing ichthyosaur renders that song a standout also, and also things gain literally loopy on "Figure Eight""s action-packed, figure-skating rock, and on "Infinity," a tribute to eight"s sidemethods sibling.

Even if it"s not rather as brilliantly clever before as Here Come the ABC"s, Here Come the 123"s never talks, or sings, down to its audience.
