The second helping of this sitcom following Flight of the Conchords; Kiwi synth-poppers in New York, was almost as funny as the first, though most critics agreed the songs were weaker.

There are certainly a few fillers here – and some highlights, like Kirsten Schaal’s “Dreams”, have been omitted – but at least half of these tracks are as good as anything on Series One.

They include “You Don’t Have To Be A Prostitute” (a nod to The Police’s “Roxanne”), the Eminem-inspired “Hurt Feelings” and the Daft Punk-ish “Too Many Dicks (On The Dancefloor)”.

Best of all is “Carol Brown”, in which Jemaine recounts 50 ways in which lovers have left him (“Britney? Britney hit me”) while being serenaded by a chorus of ex-partners (“yeah, shut up girlfriends of the past”).
