The discography of Canadian folk rock/alternative rock band Crash Test Dummies consists of nine studio albums, 23 singles, one live album, a greatest hits compilation, and two video releases. This list does not include material recorded by band members individually or with other side projects. Crash Test Dummies is most identifiable through Brad Roberts' distinctive bass-baritone voice, and the backing/occasional lead vocals of Ellen Reid.

By 1999, Crash Test Dummies probably figured they would never be hip in America, so they made partial concessions on Give Yourself a Hand. If you have trouble getting past Brad Roberts' awkward singing and writing, then maybe innovative breakbeats and arrangements might obscure them. The results are exactly what you'd expect - an instrumentally progressive pop album, completely neutralized by embarrassing lyrics and vocals. Give Yourself a Hand redefines the Dummies sound with lightly applied techno strokes, not far off from Everything But the Girl's classic Walking Wounded
Do you march to her band? And when you're by yourself With a drink in one hand Do you break your little rule And give yourself the other hand? C'mon and give yourself a hand C'mon and give yourself a hand C'mon and give yourself a hand C'mon and give yourself a hand I know your wife's uncle He's a very nice man He's got long clever fingers On his lovely pink hands Did you give that bad boy The back of your hand? I know you want to I know you can.
Give Yourself a Hand is a strange little record, but I do find myself coming back to it a lot. At the very least, it was pretty ambitious of Crash Test Dummies to keep exploring uncharted territories and not rest on their laurels; it’s neat that their cult fanbase has appreciated such musical diversity over the years, even if their commercial heyday has long past expired. You might want to pick this one up if you want to hear a different side of Crash Test Dummies, or if you just want to hear some quirky hip-hop/trip-hop tunes that have a bit of soul sprinkled throughout.
