Synopsis

Amazon.com
The soundtrack album of the popular TV show Malcolm in the Middle kicks out a few tires and windows as it replicates the boundless, smart-assed enthusiasm of youth. They Might Be Giants wrote an entire song ("Boss of Me") around the show's theme music, and it's the duo's spastic energy that sets the tone. The addition of bands with proven laugh tracks, such as Barenaked Ladies and Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies (who attack Dr. John's '70s hit "Right Place, Wrong Time" with punk-funk smarts), keeps things flowing as expected. But the surprises are what's interesting. Reeling from their David Letterman endorsed "Who Let the Dogs Out," the Baha Men provide the subtler, melodic "You All Dat" (radio mix), which won't be chanted in stadiums worldwide, but is a catchy tune nonetheless. Sneaking Hanson onto a soundtrack filled with promising acts like Travis, Eagle-Eye Cherry, and Stroke 9 might seem like a breach of protocol, but isn't being sneaky and deceitful part of the show's charm in the first place? --Rob O'Connor

Is That Hanson?

"Hmm.....Is that Hanson singing Smile? It does'nt sound like them, and it's very, very good!As a former Hanson-Hater, I suppose I have to accept that they've changed........."
Hurrah!

"I owe everything to MitM. It introduced me to They Might Be Giants! I hafta say, this CD is great for ANYONE who likes rock music and ANYONE who likes the show. The tunes really capture the essence of what Malcolm In The Middle is all about: being a kid and loving it! I'm not really keen on 'We Are Monkeys' despite previously being a pretty casual fan of Travis and I think that perhaps 'I've Seen Better Days' by Citizen King would have been a really good song to put on, plus it was used in the pilot episode.All in all, most of the songs are brilliant (Boss Of Me, Washin' + Wonderin', Bizarro) but some do get a bit tiresome after a while. It is a great CD and I definitely would recommend it, but you certainly have to be into rock to enjoy it."
