Talk:Rhino Hi-Five: They Might Be Giants

From This Might Be A Wiki

Is this some sort of cheap EP series Rhino is issuing to expose culty bands to a wider audience? I know I'm looking at this with dedicated fan eyes, but come on: of the five songs, two are covers and only ONE is a Linnell tune. And it's "Particle Man".

Actually, two and a half are covers. Sort of.... — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 21:31, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
Wait, what? New York City and Istanbul are the covers, right? Then what's the ha- oh. -J2

This sort of missed the mark... and who's idea was it to start anything with Particle Man? Ecks

Was this released in a physical form or via iTunes? --Luke 22:03, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

as far as I can tell, just digitally. I searched Rhino's store and I could only find a downloadable version of the EP thing: 22:16, 9 March 2007 (UTC)


why does this need "(EP)" tacked on the end? there's no other Rhino Hi-Five catalogued on the wiki. the closest thing is Rhino, but i don't think anyone is going to be confused. -Apollo (colloquia!) 15:19, 10 July 2013 (EDT)

I halfway agree. If anything, the parentheses could be removed, but I think it's worthwhile to keep the EP designation. Also, this compilation is pretty much a wash. :-( --MisterMe (talk) 18:25, 10 July 2013 (EDT)
i don't think i follow. other EPs that don't have a title track don't need to be disambiguated. why should this one? EP is not part of the title. it's only loosely even an EP. -Apollo (colloquia!) 20:31, 10 July 2013 (EDT)
Hark, thy logic is impeccable. I say, make thy proposed change, Godspeed you! --MisterMe (talk) 21:36, 10 July 2013 (EDT)

What they should have done[edit]

1. Ana Ng

2. Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

3. Don't Let's Start

4. Particle Man

5. Birdhouse In Your Soul

I think even the most casual fan would look at the track listing for this release and shake their heads. So many missed opportunities, even with the understanding that it's a budget-line series. Of course, nowadays, in the era of "free" streaming music and creating individualized playlists, things like this are totally obsolete and irrelevant. --MisterMe (talk) 22:41, 20 March 2020 (EDT)
