6 Gem Songs for $6
Nancy Brown | 07/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"S~E~X~X~Y is a very cool song of course. But Sen-surround is one of the best songs that TMBG ever wrote. It alone is worth the price of admission. Unforgotten is a sweet ballad, which isn't great but good enough to stand. Then We've Got A World That Swings is a classic remake, in much the same way as Why Does The Sun Shine? . The Techno remix isn't bad, but is kinda of long. It was surprisingly good, considering I can't stand most techo. So, what are reading this for, at $6 you can't afford not to buy this."
S-E-X-X-Why Never Buy This CD?

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best They Might Be Giants CD I have ever heard! S-E-X-X-Y and the remix on it are fantastic. SenSurround is their best song ever written, in my opinion. Unforgotten is a little depressing but it's still good. We've Got A World That Swings is a remarkable remake of the song from the Nutty Professer and it is great. If you're going to buy a TMBG CD buy this one."
Pick it up!

"They Might Be Giants is notorious for sticking great songs on B-sides, and this CD5 is no exception. SenSurround is my favorite TMBG song; it combines the energy of the later full band material with the loopy joy of Their early work.We've Got a World that Swings is a great cover tune. John Linnel croons this Cole Porter-esque love song over a toy piano accompaniment, making this the first TMBG song you can put on a mixtape for your girlfriend.Unforgotten is a country-fied Flansburgh ballad; a little slow and a little whiny, the weakest song on the disc but still worth a listen or two.But there's more! Neither of the two s-e-x-x-y's here are the album version. There's a radio edit, which speeds up the proceedings (good) and cuts out the strings (bad). Then there's the "microwave" mix, which is about two minutes too long but makes the song crackle and spark (much like a CD in the microwave -- not that I'm suggesting you try it).So you get two great songs, an okay song, and two different versions of the single. Definitely a must-have for TMBG fans."
