1. White & Nerdy
This is a great track obviously.... what's to say? This is the big showpiece track of course and the album seller. Never heard the original

2. Pancreas
With Genius in France I see this as a piece close to Al's heart as probably represents the kind of thing he'd like to do more of. Very creative

3. Canadian Idiot
Written with a live show in mind I think, a crowd pleaser. Not especially clever or creative

4. I'll Sue Ya.
Probably one of my personal favourites. There's some real venom in this one

5. Polkarama
A polka, what else is there to say?

6.Virus Alert
Funny song that I was surprised not to see done live. It would make a great and very do-able live number

7. Confessions pt 3
Funny song, surprising a segment made it into the live show, but it would be tough to make it a feature song. Never heard the original


8. Weasel Stomping Day
A bit of fun that seems to come from the 1980s for some reason. Filler

9. Close but No Cigar
Another personal favourite. I tend to agree with Amanda about some aspects of the video, but thats down to John Kricfalusi I guess

10. Do I Creep You Out
This one would have worked well as a featured song in the live set. It's kinda lost in the medley and I think it deserves better as it's a really good song. Never heard the original


11. Trapped In The Drive-Thru
Well I don't get this one really. It's OK, a bit pointless and much too long, but I've never heard the original and I believe that's supposed to be a big part of the joke

12. Don't Download This Song
Creative and accomplished, tuneful, impressive and very very annoying. I just don't get into this at all


Straight Outta Lynwood is only my SEVENTH favourite Weird Al album though which will surprise people as it was the first one I had andof course I've been to the live show.
Worth buying for

White & Nerdy, I'll Sue Ya, Close but No Cigar and DICYO

I know this is really random, and I didn't know where to post this. But I just looked and only two of Al's albums (SOL and PH) are in the top 100 comedy albums. I just think thats kind of weird...isn't it?

Is that a hillbilly Weird Al tribute album? Also, welcome, Sam Waterburry.

It had better be.

But is it a real album, recorded, released, and everything?
