Album: Join Us
. . .
When They Might Be Giants fifteenth studio album Join Us was released in 2011, it was marketed as They Might Be Giants first “rock album” in four years, because Here Come The 123s and Here Comes Science were their previous two releases, I guess.
But one thing I knew for sure, they opened it with their best song in ages, the utterly stunning “Can’t Keep Johnny Down,” showing that Johns Linnell and Flansburgh could still kick out utterly killer pop toons a quarter-century after “Don’t Let’s Start.”
