So... In 3-D. A very good Al-bum with six really good songs, three mediocre/bad ones and two pretty good ones.
1. Eat It - 5/5. Classic. Nuff said
2. Midnight Star - 5/5. Hilarious song about a tabliod newpaper. Contains the immortal line: "They're keeping Hitler's brain alive inside a jar". Good tune, also.
3. Brady Bunch - 4/5. I can relate to this one.
4. Buy Me A Condo - 2/5. Ok, at best
5. I Lost On Jeopardy - 5/5. Another great one. Music video is very funny.
6. Polkas On 45 - 5/5. One of his best polkas. Al creates polka versions of classic rock songs.
7. Mr. Popeil - 1/5. Every Al-bum has one of these.
8. King Of Suede - 4/5. Funny Police parody.
9. That Boy Could Dance - 3/5. Okay.
10. Theme From Rocky VIII (Rye Or The Kaiser) - 5/5. Great parody of the Rocky films, and another great food song.
11. Nature Trail To Hell - 5/5. Hilarious satire on those stupid teen slasher films. A great epic (six minutes in length) with cool music and a hilarious backwards line: "Satan eats Cheez Wiz". People who find this offensive and potty-mouthed, should either get a life, or watch a Quentin Taratino film, whatever comes first.
So, this is worth buying for: "Eat It", "Midnight Star", "I Lost On Jeopardy", "Polkas On 45" "Theme From Rocky VIII (Rye Or The Kaiser)", and "Nature Trail To Hell".

Weird Al's second album shows him in great form. The food songs, songs on TV, and song send-ups, social commentary, silly lip music, and silly noises, are all there, but there is also featured a Weird Al standard present in nearly every album. I'll get to that later.
"Eat It" is the first Michael Jackson song to be sent up--"Fat" would be done on the Even Worse album. Here though, the booming synths and guitars are replicated by Al's group of musicians instead of the accordion: "Eat it/eat it/get yourself an egg and beat it/have some more chicken have some more pie/it doesn't matter if it's boiled or fried." There's a great approximation to Eddie Van Halen's guitar solo here.
Bright 80's keyboards start "Midnight Star," about the nonsense found in supermarket tabloids, such as one's pets being extraterrestrial and most important, the story of the man born without a head, that the Incredible Frog Boy is on the loose again. I myself wonder what makes people want to read this rubbish in the first place. They can't have much circulation, but if they do, small wonder the average IQ of this country is in double digits.
Al's observations on TV shows and the stunning variety of programmes is a constant theme in his music. "The Brady Bunch," which is a send-up of Men Without Hats' "The Safety Dance" mentions Mr. Rogers, Three's Company, Barney Miller, MTV, the Addams Family and sundry others before later singing the theme song to the Brady Bunch in the later verse. His comment: "You can watch TV till your eyes fall out of your head" and "television is taking its toll" is a well-known observation on how much TV Americans watch.

Yes, I'm demented, yes, I'm stuck in the '80s, and yes, I've listened to this album about 3,546,034,002 times, and I think it's one of his best. "Nature Trail to Hell" is ingenius musically. Yes, it's twisted and morbid and has a lot of screaming, but it has the most bizarre instrumentation. I've never heard anything like it before. "The Brady Bunch," a parody of "The Safety Dance" (and '80s classic), is a very unlikely combination, but that's what makes it work. Personally, I think it should've been a single. I can relate to "Midnight Star" because I was a cashier, and when I wasn't checking out customers, I was laughing at the tabloids, which is what "Midnight Star" is mocking. My other favorite is "Polkas on 45" which includes Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (I doubt I spelled that right) and a Devo song who's name I'm not sure of. Call me uncommercial, but I could do without "Eat It," but I'm sure Al would disagree with me. If it weren't for that single, we couldn't call him the "Eat It" guy. Overall, this is a great album, and I think the title, though dated (who wear 3-D glasses anymore?) is great.

This was "Weird Al's" breakthrough album. This was the first album to feature Al's touring band of guitarist Jim West, bassist Steve Jay and drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz. The album opens with Al's biggest hit, "Eat It". There are four other great parodies of then recent hits, including the chart singles "King of Suede" and "I Lost on Jeopardy". Al also wrote five funny original songs on this album. "Midnight Star" is a hilarious song about tabloid newspapers. "Buy Me a Condo" is a reggae song about a Jamaican trying to assimilate in America. "Mr. Popeil" is a funny song about the creator of Veg-a-matic and many other "as seen on TV" products (Popeil's daughter actually sings background vocals on this song). "That Boy Could Dance" is about a dorky guy who was a good dancer, and it's probably my least favorite song on the album (but still pretty good). "Nature Trail To Hell" is a great song that is a parody of horror movie trailers. The album also features Al's first polka style medley of rock songs, "Polkas on 45". He continued to do a polka medley on virtually all his albums. This is a great album that Al's fans will love.
