iTunes Review

Although rounded out by Yankovic originals, Weird Al’s third studio album contains some of his finest song parodies: Madonna herself suggested "Like a Surgeon," and The Kinks, Huey Lewis, and Cyndi Lauper all attract Al's satiric attention. The highlight, however, is the title track, a bounty of bad advice in the style of electro-pop pioneers Devo. Yankovic also lampoons Elvis and cheesy sci-fi flicks before winding down with a relentlessly perky polka pastiche of a dozen pop hits.

This album is just awesome!!!


EVERY Track on this album showcases Al bringing his A-Game. With smartly written lyrics and razor sharp production and performance of the songs; Al and the band turned out inpiring parodies( "Like a Surgeon" "I Wanna New Duck" and "Yoda") and hilarious original fare ("Dare to be Stupid" ,"Slime Creatures From Outer Space" and my personal favorite, The ULTIMATE BREAK UP SONG "One More Minute"). I remember when this album came out that it was such critical and financial success that expectations for Al's follow up "Polka Party" was so high that there was no way it could ever live up to it's potential which was set by this album.

is the real title 'the best of Wierd Al?'

Because this is hte best he's ever done.
