Product description

This product has passed our meticulous quality checks and is guaranteed to be in great condition. You can buy from us with confidence.

At last, the album that fans of Bob, Pilchard, Wendy, Farmer Pickles and co have been waiting for. As with most children's television musical tie-ins, Bob the Builder--The Album combines quirky, humorous lyrics that reference the narrative and the characters of the show, with contemporary musical sounds. Copying the successful formula of the UK No. 1 singles, "Can We Fix It?" and "Mambo No. 5" the album is packed with plenty of building trade lyrical allusions ("...mix it up","...don't mess with my JCB"). "Let's Get Busy" has a garage-style beat that cheekily incorporates bird "cheeping" samples, while "No One Can Dig It" is a down-tempo Latino-type track which quotes some of the lines from "Can We Fix It". Line-dancing though gets the most acknowledgement, with "Bob's Line Dance" and the duet with Wendy "Blonde Haired Gal" paying homage to Texas's greatest musical export. Overall a fun album that is only slightly soured by Spud the Scarecrow's plucky ballad "What Can I Be" which strangely resembles Keith Harris's and Orville's winsome 1983 hit "I Wish I Could Fly". Top pop for tots, builders and adults too. --John Galilee
