There never was anything quite like TMBG. Lyrically maniacal, musically schizophrenic. Lincoln captures their charisma better than there other great albums.

My intro to TMBG and I love it! Quirky and charming yes, but hasn't lost its roots with Punk either.

This is TMBG at their smart and quirky best. Lincoln is more consistent than most of their albums though IMO "Don't Let's Start" is still their best song. If you want to try them out then this is the album. Their sound is not for everyone.
