Album · 1990 · 19 Songs. It's pretty funny that two paeans to sloth are buried on this hard-working 19-song album, but that's hardly the only good joke on Flood, trickster duo They Might Be Giants' third album. Try the title of "We Want a Rock. ) Their first for Elektra, it finds the indie wunderkinds taking their omnivorous, only-half-kidding pop above ground.

On their major-label debut, Flood, They Might Be Giants exchange quirky artiness for unabashed geekiness and a more varied and polished musical attack. Although the album contains two of the group's finest singles in "Birdhouse in Your Soul" and "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)," the overall record is uneven, since the group's hooks aren't quite as sharp as before and the humor is either too geeky or leavened with awkward social statements like "Your Racist Friend
