Here Comes Science

I'm the biggest TMBG nerd in the world, and also I'm a massive nerd in general, so obviously I was psyched about "Here Comes Science." I remember buying the EP of "The Sun is a Mass of Incandescent Gas" in 1993, or so, and thinking, "Hey, they should put that song with Mammal, and maybe get some other science songs together, and that'd be pretty cool." Well, Mammal isn't here, but there are a lot of fun songs and videos. I am a Paleontologist and Meet the Elements are my favorites. Kudos to Disney for being brave enough to release an album whose first track is "Science is Real", and makes clear to kids that angels are no more real than unicorns. Or maybe the Disney police just weren't paying attention, or didn't care. Only nerd kids are gonna hear this, anyway. So, feast away, nerd kids!
