nice intro to the world of TMBG
24 February 2003 | by (St. Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Satisfying introduction to the world of TMBG. Your appreciation for these videos might depend on your taste for the band's unique musical vision, but it's hard for even the uninitiated to come away without tapping a toe, or smiling at the goofy visual wit. Wisely, the compilation's been arranged in reverse chronological order, so the videos get cheaper, loopier, and more inventive as you go along. The best ones come nearer the end: `Birdhouse in Your Soul,' `Ana Ng,' `Don't Let's Start,' and `Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head,' which feature bizarre choreography, jam-packed design, and a permeating silliness. Essential for hardcore TMBGeeks, of course, but recommended for newbies, too. The DVD contains some neat extras, and low-key commentary from Flansburgh and Linnell.
