I own Stephen Lynch's two previous CDs and while they have some great songs on them, there are a few misses on each CD. With "The Craig Machine" though, Lynch has put out the damn near perfect musical comedy CD. And it's obvious now that everyone in the audience is on the fact that these sweet sounding love songs are anything but (check out how the audience reacts after he sings the first line of "Love Song"). "Craig," "Voices in my Head," "Beelz," "Baby," and "Vanilla Ice Cream" are the standouts on the CD, but I'm sure everyone will find all the songs as entertaining as I did. Be careful when listening to the CD though, because you'll be surprised what will get stuck in your head. I've been singing "I'm the only French bum in New York" for two days.

This album was definitley worth the money. Stephen Lynch is one of the funniest comedians I've ever heard. Only down side, in my opinion, is that lots of the songs that were repeated from the "Live In El Ray" DVD released a while ago were better on the DVD than this album. Individual song reviews:

1. Vanilla Ice Cream (8/10): Good song, catchy and funny. Love the beginning.. ending isn't that great.

2. Baby (8/10): The song is awesome, but the DVD version is way better. Some of the lyrical changes are great, but he just doesn't seem to get into it as much as he did on the DVD.

3. Halloween (9/10): Definitley a funny one. I like the fact that I've never heard it before from him... great concept for a song!

4. Love Song (9/10): I love the crowd reaction when he starts singing.. they know what's coming! This one's just as good as the DVD version, I think.

5. Craig (10/10): To be totally honest, I hated this song when I first heard it on the DVD. I thought it was boring. The more I watched the DVD, though, the more the song got stuck in my head. Then I bought this album this morning, and I haven't got the song out of my head all day. Such an awesome song... I have no idea why I didn't like it from the beginning.

6. Beelz (10/10): BY FAR the best song on this album, possibly one of the best songs Lynch has ever made. I absolutley LOVE the voices he creates!

7. Albino (7/10): Not as catchy as the other songs, but still funny. This is the song I skip through the fastest, though.

8. Mixer At Delta Chi (8/10): Maybe I just like this song because I'm in college... but it's good either way. Could be better... I'm not too hot on the chorus, but overall it's good.

This is by far one of the best albums that I've come across in the past few years. Since hearing this, Stephen Lynch has gone from just some guy I whose comedy special stuck out in my mind, to one of my favorite artists.

From a musical standpoint, this is a very good singer/songwriter album. Songs like "Litty Tiny Moustache" and "Vanilla Ice Cream" are written so well, that sometimes I find myself ignoring the words and foucsing in on the melodies. In fact, at certian points, I was almost a little dissapointed that these are joke songs. Quite a few of these tracks would have had the opportuinity to be in the same league with songs by artists like Simon & Garfuknel, Neil Young, and Johnny Cash.

There really isn't a low point to the album. Each song is consistantly different from the last, and the topics of each very in the same way. Everything from Jungle Fever to The Third Reich is satarized by Mr. Lynch. I highly reccomend this album to anyone looking for a laugh, a good acoustic album, or just something new.

Make sure to check out Stephen Lynch's preformance of Adam Sandler's character "Robbie Heart" in the Broadway adaptation of The Wedding Singer.

This CD will be a great addition to your comedy CD collection and is a must have for any Stephen Lynch fan. Personally I think this CD is better than his previous two. If you own the DVD, some of the songs you will already know...but the new ones add the normal Stephen Lynch shockers and lines that are unforgettable. You will be singing along with the CD in no time. If you do have a chance, check out his tour dates, because he is even funnier in person-[...] to check out the details!

"The Craig Machine" is the latest comedy CD by novelty song writer/singer Stephen Lynch. This is the third CD for the artist & his second live album (the previous two albums being "A Little Bit Special" & "Superhero", which was also a live album).

Unlike "Superhero", which basically was a live version of "A Little Bit Special", with some original bonus tracks added, "The Craig Machine" contains 14 all-new songs plus a bonus track, a revamped (3-player game?) version of the song, "D&D", a song about the game Dungeons & Dragons.

As with his first two albums, "The Craig Machine" is loaded with hilarious, and sometimes envelope-pushing, songs. One of those songs is "Halloween", about a maniac, who eats 'Trick-or-Treaters'.

Another song is "Craig", about Jesus' non-miracle performing brother Craig Christ.

A third song, "Beelz", features an effeminate Beelzebub talking about himself & his interests.

So, if you haven't figured it out by now, this CD is NOT for children. Only people aged 18 & over should purchase/listen to this CD, because of language & content.

The only complaint I have with "The Craig Machine", has nothing to do with the music, which is fantastic; it's about the packaging, which is horrendous. The CD doesn't come in a traditional, plastic case, it comes in a double-flip, cardboard case. Not only that, but the CD sleeve is only big enough for the CD itself; the song booklet, that comes with it, simply falls out, the second you take the plastic off of the case.

Over all, "The Craig Machine" is an enjoyable, funny comedy CD. A must have for any Stephen Lynch fan.
