Not feeling this polka as much as others, but as it is a "Weird Al" Yankovic polka, it's pretty durned good. It certainly is better as a studio version, though.

Well, that's all fine and good, but what did you think of "Polka Face"? :P

After only one listen through, I will give my ranking. I fully expect this to be completely different in 24 hours...

1. Party In The CIA
2. Polka Face
3. Skipper Dan
4. Perform This Way
5. CNR
6. Craigslist
7. If That Isn't Love
8. TMZ
9. Ringtone
10. Another Tattoo
11. Stop Forwarding That Crap To Me
12. Whatever You Like


That was surprisingly hard to do.

2. If That Isn't Love
3. Skipper Dan
4. Polka Face
5. TMZ
6. Party in the CIA.
7. Perform This Way.
8. Craigslist.
9. CNR
10. Another Tattoo
11. Whatever You Like
12. Ringtone

1 Party In The CIA
...
12 Ringtone

These two are set in their ranking for me. The rest will likely fluctuate over time.

Like most people, I don't wanna do a full-on ranking just yet so I'll just include some brief comments from the first listen.

1. Party in the CIA - Loved it. Great vocal, clever lyrics.
2. Skipper Dan - I maintain that it's one of his catchiest originals ever, and the concept is perfectly executed in all its subtle brilliance.
3. TMZ - Was surprised to enjoy this one so much. Love the spoken part.
4. If That Isn't Love - A Hanson style parody? If that isn't awesome, I don't know what awesome is!
5. CNR - Still awesome.
6. Craigslist - Ditto.
7. Another Tattoo - This probably will fall a little bit. The subject matter I think is a little too easy although there were some good lines.
8. Perform This Way - It's no "White and Nerdy" but still a great lead single.
9. Polka Face - I'll probably appreciate it more over time as I learn to love it as its own song (I'd only listened to the live version once, when it first debuted)...but initially, my view on a polka depends a lot on how much I care for the original songs, and there aren't many here I'm a fan of.
10. Ringtone - More interesting as a performance than the song itself. But I do enjoy it.
11. Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me - It took a little too long to get anywhere. Decent, but could've been shortened and/or increased the proportion of jokes to repetitions of the title. Also, I think it's too similar to DDTS and probably shouldn't have been the last track.
12. Whatever You Like - I still hate it. Sorry Al.
