Look: forget everything I ever said about music up until this point. Forget any high-minded bullshit about miserable ambient music. This is the only non-worthless album we have ever stocked. This is it. This is all I care about.
The nigh-on a hundred plus songs on this monolithic and dubiously cash-grabby soundtrack for Bob’s Burgers prove the show has long since outrun the greatest cartoon sitcoms in the musical number department; the Simpsons gave us all of the greatest and most iconic parodies, but the songs in Burgers fully make the show soar. From quick montage vignettes to super surrealist stream-of-conscious rambles -- from songs about pooping and gardening to heart-breaking laments (like my go-to tearjerker, “I Don’t Need Music”, in which farty pop star kid Gene quits music forever) -- this show has told its story in song, squirming its way through life with a little comfort from tweedom.
Much in the spirit of the show's scrappy failures and posi downbeat vibe, these songs are incredibly catchy and terribly delivered, the characters largely squealing and howling their way through their treatises with true emo power (like the song where a choir of the nasal sing romantically about Thomas Edison electrocuting an elephant). They pretty much remind me of my daily karaoke routines in this office, where I’ll sing with full conviction a song nobody wants to hear. Life is worth living and also there are a couple of extra reworks by the National, St. Vincent and Stephin Merritt, so that’s a nice plus.
I wish all the proceeds to this record were going to the Belcher family, but sadly... they don't exist? Good lord.
