Roger Alan Wade's last album, 2010's DEGUELLO MOTEL, was a deep, thoughtful folk/country album, full of deeply emotional gems that drug fingers through the fuzz covering redneck lifestyle. But, as we know from R.A.W.'s debut album, he has a snarky side too (he's Johnny Knoxville's cousin, after all), and TOO FAT TO FLY exhibits this latter persona.

Now, I'm more of a fan of Wade's serious stuff, but there's no denying he's good with funny wordplay, usually in a completely non-P.C. manner. "Gone Back to Whorin'...Again" revisits one of his debut's funnier tunes, while "Too Fat To Fly" makes fun of the whole Kevin Smith situation (Google it). "Haulin' A**" is a nice double entendre, while "Pyscho B**** From Hell" describes quite a few people you've known in your life (admit it). Wade plays it straight-faced on such tunes as "Leave Me Alone (Or I'll Find Me a Woman Who Will)" and "Stoned Playin' Pinball," and actually gets somewhat touching on "You Turn the Key (On My Rack of Spam." He ends with the highlight "The Sun Don't Shine On the Same Dog's A** Everyday," with each verse sung with more-or-less accurate impersonations of musical figures (my favorite being the Springsteen: "The sun don't shine on the same dog's a** everyday, mister."

Overall, this is an album for Wade's devoted fans. If you're approaching his music for the first time, check out DEGUELLO MOTEL and STONED TRAVELER to get an idea of his songwriting depth; then give this album a listen to see how amusing he can be at times. TOO FAT TO FLY isn't Wade at his best, but it's Wade having fun, which is still pretty damn good.
