AllMusic Review by

Factory Showroom, They Might Be Giants' second effort with a full band, is a stronger album than its predecessor, John Henry, boasting a more natural sound and a more diverse selection of material. However, John Flansburgh and John Linnell are still suffering from a slight creative block -- they even recycle an old B-side, "James K. Polk" -- as evidenced by the lack of memorable hooks and forced jokes.
