In his fourth (and quite possibly best) album, Patton covers a range of topics from how hipsters make the Spam museum sad, the greatness of sweatpants, and revisits his attack on KFC Famous Bowls.

You pick up extra nuances, definitely worth a buy.
Kenneth L. Kirsh
The changes of his life (i.e. his fatherhood) have really come through on his comedy, and honestly, he is still just as funny as he ever has been.
Girricane
Patton Oswalt is is hugely funny, geeky and thought-provoking.

I saw most of this material performed at a show in Fargo, ND. It was good but maybe a bit of a letdown to me back then. If I had known he was working on new material I might have given him a bit more credit. That was a while ago now and clearly he got it whipped into shape because this is a fantastic set. It really helps that the crowd is energized too, I haven't heard applause and laughs this loud on a CD possibly ever. Patton's clearly in a transition phase from nerdier, more niche material into broader topics related to parenting and life but if it remains this good I don't think we'll hear cries of "sell out" and if we do they should be ignored.

I was very pleased with this purchase. Patton is especially funny as usual. I would rank it up there with his other CDs of recent years.

Coming off of Patton Oswalt: My Weakness Is Strong (DVD / CD Combo) Patton is back with brand new album that covers everything from his new life as a dad to his renewed views on KFC Famous bowls.

Compared to his previous albums, this is much more focused on the daily minutia of life, and less so on any political/nerdy subjects that were covered more in-depth on his previous albums. The changes of his life (i.e. his fatherhood) have really come through on his comedy, and honestly, he is still just as funny as he ever has been. I listened to this album with a number of my closest friends, and there were quite literally times where we were having problems breathing we were laughing so hard. "The Ham Incident" is hands down one of the funniest things I've heard in a long time.

Fans of Patton Oswalt should not give this one a second thought and buy it, but those of you on the fence will find this album to be one of Patton's most approachable (and funniest) yet.

I have all his previous albums and you can actually hear him getting better with each release. His timing and delivery are more polished than ever, and the material, as always, is dead on.

Like many of the best comedians, Patton's advantage is not just that he's hilariously funny, but he's also a superb writer. I've read his book, "Zombie, Spaceship, Wasteland," and it's also excellent. This is not a club comic tossing out one-liner observations. He's insightful, sharp, and flat-out funny. I'd give it five stars, but I have a feeling (a hopeful one) that even better is yet to come.

I first became aware of Patton Oswalt when I saw "No Reason to Complain" when it first came out on DVD. I wasn't terribly impressed. Patton's performance felt too rushed, loud and hurried for me to really enjoy it. I'm happy to say that since then, he has become one of my most favorite comedians of all time. Each album he has released has shown his growth both as a human being and a phenomenal writing talent. Let's be truthful; NOTHING IS HARDER THAN COMEDY. Patton's perspective has grown wider, not narrower as the years have passed. Married life and fatherhood has done nothing to blunt his cynical view of the world. In fact, these life-changing events have added a slightly sweet edge to his nerdy bitterness that really helps to leaven his anger with the small graces that a happy home life can bring. He has become more confident in himself and his material, and thus even funnier.

Just compare the performances between "Feelin' Kinda Patton" and "Finest Hour." On the former album, Patton is almost berating the audience with his jokes. He yells a LOT, and it makes for a fairly bombastic experience, as if he wants to browbeat the audience into submission. On the latter album, Patton still uses volume and rage, but he's much more selective about it. He chooses the right moment for them, just as he chooses the right moment for a particularly saucy string of profanities or vulgarities. I loves me some gross humor as much as the next person, but I don't want a steady stream of it. Patton has struck the right balance and his material has developed a much wider range, both in subject matter and delivery.

There were two bits on "Finest Hour", that when I heard them for the first time I literally could not get the air in quick enough to laugh.

Glad I bought it.

Patton Oswalt is my favorite working comedian. I was a bit disappointed in his last CD, "My Weakness is Strong," which I didn't believe up to the level of "Werewolves and Lollipops," but I think this one is a bit stronger. He shows no signs of slowing down. What I like the most about him, other than his voices, is that his moral compass comes showing through his jokes, whether he means it to or not. By this point, simply hearing that Patton Oswalt has come out with a new CD is enough to get me to click over and buy it without asking too many questions.

This comedian has good timing and stories. Some of the bits are very vulgar. I don't mind the vulgarity so much when it is funny. It is a 50-50 split on the vulgar routines.

I only initially wanted to give this CD 3 stars. That thought pained me because I have listened to two of his previous albums "Feeling Kinda Patton" and "Werewolves and Lollipops") and they are 5 stars no doubt. So I instead just never reviewed the album. Since then I have listened to it several more times, and as many musical albums do for me, I liked it more the more I listened. If you think Oswalt is funny give this album a listen. Just give it more than one.
