John Henry/Factory Showroom

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
This "two-fer" from veteran alt-rockers They Might Be Giants includes two complete albums, 1995's John Henry (their first outing to feature a full band) and 1996's Factory Showroom, the latter of which signaled a return to the more quirky, keyboard-driven approach of their early outings.
