Details:
By turns hilarious and melancholy, rockin' and melodious, Jonathan Coulton's lovely ditties about vengeful nerds, ennui-afflicted clowns, partially-imagined historical figures, and devotees of a certain Swedish prefab furniture store are insanely clever without ever being too clever for their own good. They repeatedly lure you into laughing before suddenly breaking your heart. And the sick part is, you keep coming back. Coulton's is the voice of every spooky elementary school kid who could never quite keep his shirt tucked in or shoes tied; every lovelorn mason and mad scientist; every one of us who has ever sat despairingly on the floor, surrounded by parts of an Ikea endtable, weeping over our allen wrenches. (He also acquits himself beautifully in the ever-popular genre of odes to outdoor copulation.)

"singer-songwriter stylings with all the versatility and winning wit of They Might be Giants"

"if Raffi liked to sing bad words every once in a while"

"craftsman-ly pop, with made to order tunes regarding jingoism, Swedish furniture super-stores, de-evolution and the shadowy, world-domination-oriented cabal known as the Masonic Guild!!!"

"like the Barenaked Ladies, but not soul-suckingly horrible in the least"

"Tom Lehrer with a guitar and a high fever"
