They Might Be Giants - Severe Tire Damage (Restless Records)

Do these guys even need an introduction anymore? Does this CD even really need a review? If there's anyone out there that hasn't at least heard of these polka-jazz-lounge pioneers, well-okay, I never go outside or listen to the radio or pay much attention to really anything that isn't taking place right in front of me, and I know who they are.

Anyway, to get on with it, this disc is pretty much a greatest-hits collections, with such happy little classic gems like 'Birdhouse in Your Soul,' 'Why Does the Sun Shine?' the obligatory 'Istanbul (Not Constantinople)', and a bunch of other songs (17 tracks in all), some of which have never been released before. Pretty frikkin' cool, all the way 'round.
