Flood is the third studio album by Brooklyn-based Alternative Rock duo They Might Be Giants. Originally released in 1990, the album is generally considered to be the band's definitive release, as it is their best-selling and most recognizable album.
Despite minimal stylistic and instrumental differences from previous releases, Flood is distinguished by contributions from seasoned producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, who as a team worked with artists like Morrissey, Elvis Costello and Madness. The critically acclaimed album generated three radio singles: "Birdhouse In Your Soul," "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)," and "Twisting." Other promotion for Flood included TV appearances, promotional videos and an international tour.
The reissue of this classic They Might Be Giants album is pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl and is presented in a gatefold sleeve.
"On their major-label debut, Flood, They Might Be Giants exchange quirky artiness for unabashed geekiness and a more varied and polished musical attack... Flood has a number of first-rate songs, and it's a strong addition to their catalog..." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
