Word to all rap-parody ? practitioners: Andy Samberg’s Lonely Island crew perfected your craft with ”I’m on a Boat,” and you only emphasize that fact by trying to top it. Exhibit A? The sophomore studio set by Flight of the Conchords, which gets off to a disappointing start with a string of lame loverman jokes over even ? lamer dime-store production. (Next time shell out for T-Pain, guys.) I Told You I Was Freaky improves with the wry synth-rock send-up ”Fashion Is Danger” and ”Rambling Through the Avenues of Time,” a ? pitch-perfect Billy Joel pastiche. But the hip-hop is not hot. C+
