Overview

From the defiant tones of its opening track -- They Might Be Giants' theme song, "Boss of Me" -- this album is a gem for fans of the upbeat alternative pop and rock featured each week on Fox's clever comedy Malcolm in the Middle. The series follows the various mishaps of a typical, dysfunctional, and chaotic household, at the center of which is Malcolm, the reckless but inherently sweet genius who narrates the action. Like the program, the tracks on the accompanying soundtrack are quirky but fun, from the Latin-flavored reggae-funk of Baha Men's "You All Dat" to the Getaway People's funky, G. Love-ish "Good Life" to the Barenaked Ladies' catchy, frenetic "Falling for the First Time" to the pleasing pop of Travis's gentle "We Are Monkeys." Also included in the album's eclectic mix are Hanson, OPM, Eagle-Eye Cherry, and Citizen King. In addition to the theme tune, They Might Be Giants contribute the whimsical "Older," leaving the Dust Brothers to close the album with "I Just Don't Care," in which a defiant sound bite from Malcolm himself and great bits of dialogue repeat against a pulsating electronic beat. It's rare that a TV soundtrack so completely evokes a show's mood, but Malcolm in the Middle is that welcome exception.

I agree in saying that this soundtrack fits the mood of the television show. quirky, yes, bouncy, yeah, and good, oh yeah. maybe these songs aren't my ABSOLUTE faves, but this soundtrack is perfect for the show.

I love Malcolm In The Middle. I think it would stop The Jeffersons, and Home Improvment dead in its tracks. Though I do love Home Improvment. This show also has the greatest TV theme in history (besides The Boondocks hip hop theme I like that). I love Barenaked Ladies, OPM, Rednex, The Push Stars, Stroke 9, Eagel Eye Cherry, and most of all, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buy this CD and you will want to listen again and again and again.
