Brain Candy, the mixed-bag companion to this month’s Kids in the Hall vehicle is most exasperating when its contributors fall back on their trademark attributes ā€” i.e., Scott Thompson’s sexuality (”I’m Gay”), They Might Be Giants’ cheek-pinching whimsy (”Spiralling Shape”), and Liz Phair’s studied naughtiness (”Six D— Pimp”). Cibo Matto, Pavement, and Stereolab fare better, but maybe not enough to justify the price.
