    Okay, @vinylmeplease let me try this again the right way because I don’t want to blow anyone’s chance at picking up such a fantastic album due to my negligence.

    They Might be Giants ‘Flood’:

    Introduced to a young generation of CD buyers through videos of two of the album’s songs on the cartoon variety show “Tiny Toon Adventures”, Flood sauntered across the tightrope balance of whimsical lyricism and earnest themes, or vice versa. It was among an early wave of genre-hopping indie releases that was produced with pop appeal in mind but just enough under the surface to ensure its songs would be remembered and revisited for months and years to come. Solidifying the careers of They Might be Giants, it is easily their most well-known and loved record and a perfect place to begin experiencing their delightful quirkiness.

    3 sentences!!! I did it!!! And I don’t yet own the vinyl, so I will buy it along with other members if it shows up in the store :)

    1. Band of Horses - Cease to Begin

    2. This is the album that steered me back to listening to albums instead of singles after my digital music binge in the early '00s. For long, family road trips it always makes the playlist. I usually try to time it so that this starts right around sunrise on the road.

    Still think this would make a perfect VMP Community Pick.
