Another record for the children by They Might Be Giants! As with their other ventures into this field, this is a sincere, fun collection of songs, with not a trace of snark in sight. The answer to Why? must be ‘to give parents music that neither they nor their children will hate’: a surprisingly rare commodity. Out on Lojinx.

7/10 Jack 18th February 2017
I've been following They Might Be Giants for a while, and have appreciated all of the fun and interesting stuff they've brought to the kids music arena. With so much "said" on their previous kids CDs, it seemed at first like this collection may have been superfluous, but it's something that can be eventually enjoyed. Highlights are "Oh You Did" "Cat Named Dog" "Definition of Good" and "Mess". Why? is funny, charming, tender, clever, smart, imaginative album from a musically skilled and crafty bands.
