I heard this album before I saw any episodes of their TV show, but I'm pleased to say that Flight of the Conchords' goofy, absurdist and faux-dramatic songs work perfectly both on screen and on record. They pay homage to many various musical genres throughout, such as the Pet Shop Boys-style "Inner City Pressure" complete with spoken worded verses and vocoded choruses, while "Mutha'uckas" destroys gangsta rap with its hilariously mundane verses about a greengrocer and ATM fees. While comedy songs can be novelties, the duo's articulate songwriting will win you over. "Ladies of the World" is a fine vocal performance with the added bonus of an ethereal reverb-drenched coda, and "A Kiss is Not a Contract" takes the overly sensitive sounds of 60s folk and beautifully makes it their own. Some parts may need a bit of context to them, but these songs are not only so clever and funny, but also put-together so well that you can go into Flight of the Conchords blind and have a good ol' time nonetheless.
