5.0 out of 5 stars Great sampling of FOTC wit Feb. 8 2008
By Knex - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When FOTC's show first came out, I was instantly sold. I ordered this EP and their 'Folk The World Tour' (live album) from SmokeCDs. Both of these albums have their own unique edge. This one (Distant Future) will whet your appetite for FOTC Season 2 (WTF?) and remind you why you enjoy their show so much.

While I wish either this or the 'Folk The World Tour' album contained the studio/show tracks (i.e. for songs like BOOM!, Robots, etc.), these are still pretty good--especially for a (mostly) live album. You can also get free mp3s off their site--google 'em and you'll find a few not on either album.

With the live show recordings, there's a great freshness to their banter that illustrates just how talented these guys really are (esp. on the fly). Buy this...and don't forget to check out their 'Folk The World Tour' album, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, Love it, Love it!!!!!! Oct. 16 2007

This cd may only be 6 tracks long but it makes up in humor. You get the best of their studio and live acts. Bret and Jemaine's vocals compliment each others so well. John Mayer wishes he could sing as soulful as Jemaine Clement. "I'm Not Cryin'" is so great, everyone's been there when you fool yourself that its just been raining on your face. I can't wait for their full length album, and hear great tracks from the show like Sellotape and Inner City Pressure. The live tracks are hilarious, they make up for the cd only being 23 min long, especially the "banter" track, when they talk to the audience, and the "Robot" song, with the binary solo, too funny. I have no idea why these guys aren's selling out stadiums.

I bought this as a gift for my father-in-law off his wishlist. He was very excited to receive it, and he played it for us while we were there. My husband and I both found the songs to be hilarious despite never seeing the TV show, and we added the show to our DVR list as soon as we got back home. Now we're hooked on the show and planning on buying the CD for ourselves soon.

If you're not familiar with Flight of the Conchords, they write humorous songs that sound surprisingly "normal." The band is made up of two men from New Zealand. The TV show (on HBO) follows their attempt to make their band successful in New York City.

5.0 out of 5 stars F.o. the C. are the greatest!! Aug. 8 2007

Fellow robots or "robros" you need to get this!!!

This EP is great and I just can't get enough, I'm really looking forward to the full album. I became a fan of these guys back in 2005 when I first saw them on HBO and I am so glad that are now getting some real recognition.

Also has the "Complete BBC Radio Series" three CD set with a running time of three hours. Most of the material has been reused for the HBO show but it is all still very funny. You should check that out as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars landing in a cd player near you... Sept. 24 2007

Talk about funny. Better than six with a stranger. Although this is a relatively short cd, all of the songs are great. If you like parody music or comedic music, you will definately appreciate the laughs you get from these guys. If you have seen them on HBO and were entertained, listen to their music and be entertained some more. Covering modern topics like the prettiest girl in the "room", or hip robots taking over the earth, you will miss a great cd if you pass this one up. Affirmative, I poked it, its a hit.
