"Excellent CD and DVD combo to introduce Science concepts"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent CD and DVD combo to introduce Science concepts to children of every age. We listened to the CD many times in the car before watching the DVD and this helped a lot with getting to know the songs. The songs are fun and catchy in a variety of styles, and are tolerable to the ears of all family members despite differing tastes in music – so perfect for family trips.

The DVD simply contains the songs set to lovely animations using mixed media that illustrate the song along with quirky introductions by TMBG.

The song titles are mainly self explanatory. “Roy G Biv” is about the colour spectrum and “The Ballad of Davy Crockett” is a remake of the song with a space theme. “Why Does the Sun Really Shine?” clears up the inaccuracies in “Why Does the Sun Shine?” and demonstrates the scientific method at work. The different styles of song also mean that we get to hear a Round with “What is a Shooting Star?” and that would have to be my favourite song followed closely by “I am a Paleontologist”. My daughter's fa­vourite is “Electric Car” and the DVD has the most gorgeous animated video to go with it – guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone who watches it.

Something to be aware of is the speed of the lyrics can be a bit too fast for young children to hear clearly (making for amusing misheard lyrics when they sing on their own) and some concepts will be more suitable for slightly older children though they aren't wasted on younger ones.

Overall, I haven't experienced one moment of regret at buying this album and my only wish is that They Might Be Giants would release another science album so we'd have even more songs to use as jumping off points for science!

Description

Here Comes Science follows up their successful past two children's albums Here Come the ABCs and Here Come the 123s. With songs like “Electric Car," "Photosynthesis" and "Solid Liquid Gas" among others, kids will learn about science while having fun. Comes with DVD showing videos of all the songs for the kids to sing and dance along to!

Combining a knack for infectious melodies with a unique, bizarre sense of humor and a vaguely avant-garde aesthetic borrowed from the New York post-punk underground, They Might Be Giants were one of the alternative success stories of the late '80s and early '90's. The duo – John Flansburgh and John Linnell celebrated their 20th anniversary in summer 2002 with their first foray into Children's music.

Early in 2005, the band entered into their successful partnership with Disney Music Group through which they have released three children's CD's titled- Here Come the ABCs, Here Come The 123s and Here Comes Science CD/DVD.

These three titles are now available for the first time in New Zealand!

Here Come The 123s include family-friendly original songs and music videos that make learning numbers fun and entertaining. They Might Be Giants won the Best Musical Album for Children at the Grammy Awards 2009 for this release.
