They Might Be Giants: Apollo 18 (Elektra)

Paul Lester, Melody Maker, 9 May 1992

THE COVER features a squid, a satellite and a whale. Yup, They Might Be Grating are back. Think of all the ugliest expletives you could possibly hurl at pop music — zany, screwball, quirky, fun — then run screaming for the nearest bunker. You can almost smell the horn rimmed glasses and slicked-down, greased-back hair from here.

Total word count of piece: 206
