Listing Detail Tabs

Flight of the Conchords follow the release of their six-track Grammy
Award-Winning CDEP The Distant Future with their full-length album debut, the
conveniently titled Flight of the Conchords (which, not at all coincidentally,
is also the name of their HBO television series).

Produced by Mickey Petralia (Beck Midnight Vultures, Ladytron Light &
Sound) in Los Angeles, New York and Wellington, the album features fully
fleshed-out and professionally recorded versions of Flight of the Conchords
concert and television favourites.

The songs are heard here in expanded but reverent arrangements. Bret McKenzie
and Jemaine Clement's trademark acoustic guitars lead the blitz, backed by a
diverse array of instrumentation.

These 15 songs pay homage to Pet Shop Boys, censorship, Marvin Gaye, sexism,
Shabba Ranks and backhanded compliments.

Review
Taking the torch from Tenacious D and then taking 14 songs from the first
season of their HBO series (plus a 15-second outro), Flight of the Conchords'
first full-length release for Sub Pop is a strong serving of songs from the
dynamic deadpan duo. Unfortunately, since the show included a few songs per
episode, 11 of the songs didn't make it past the cutting-room floor, and gems
like “If You're Into It,” “I'm Not Crying,” and “Sello Tape” got the
axe, along with the character dedications and motivations “Cheer Up,
Murray,” “Song for Sally,” and “Bret, You Got It Going On.”
It's forgivable, though; a double-disc set of every song would have been
overkill, and most of the favorites make the cut on the CD. Fans still get the
neo-soul
