Initially the songs follow a numerical order. The smooth sounds of 'Zeros' explains how they can mean so much (enjoying the irony the whole way), accounting for numbers big, small, and nothing at all. Other highlights include the Elton John-esq 'Number two', the Devo reminiscent 'High five' talking all about how to celebrate with your friends. 'Figure 8' is a fast paced and rocking tune full of energy. The comically fun 'Nine bowls of soup' will get everyone laughing along, while 'Ten Mississippi' teaches a valuable trick in counting seconds. Finally, 'One dozen monkeys' provides a cute and sweet little story.
After the initial counting, the album moves on to slightly bigger concepts such as bigger numbers in the short, fast, and loud 'Eight hundred and thirteen mile car trip' and in the poppy song about the largest number ever 'Infinity'. Then there is the poppy sing-a-long 'I can add' teaching kids about addition, and the more subdues 'Even numbers'.
Added bonus material includes the closing track to the Mickey Mouse clubhouse show, 'Hot dog', and then the 'Mickey mouse clubhouse theme.' Followed by live versions of previous children's tunes 'John Lee Supertaster' and 'Bed bed bed'.
This is a sensational album that gives children a fun, exciting, and educational introduction to numbers while standing up musically, as another great They Might Be Giants' album.
