Music Review: Flight of The Conchords

If you’re in the mood for laugh-out-loud hilarity, then it’s about time you check-out (literally,) Flight of the Conchords’ self-titled album. The comic duo has had 4 Emmy nominations and won a 2007 Grammy for Best Comedy Album. Flight of the Conchords uses hip-hop, rock soul, pop and glam rock to deliver their powerfully funny and sarcastic messages, while also paying homage to the Pet Shop Boys, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, and even Shabba Ranks. Although the album pokes fun at a variety of themes, including the French language, attractive women, how humans have contracted disease from monkeys, and the violence of inter-city life, “killing each other using knives and forks,” the album is very well done. Check out the tracks Faux da Fafa, Inner City Pressure (my personal favorite,) Ladies of the World, and Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros.

I second Melissa's excellent review. Ever since I got Flight of the Conchords I cannot stop listening to it. They've managed to somehow mix their hillarious comedy with fantastic songs.
