Just post a song by song review of BHD, like this:

Amish Paradise: 8/10: This song is funny, but it lost it's touch. Well, it's certainly better than the original, that's for sure.

Everything You Know Is Wrong: 9/10: "I was driving down the freeway with a rabid wolverine in my underpants..."

Cavity Search: 8/10: One of the most underrated parodies.

Callin' In Sick: 7/10: I thought this song was a little dull at some points, but overall, it's ok.

The Alternative Polka: 10/10: Greatest. Polka. Ever. How can you not give it a 10 when it has a better version of a Green Day song? Loser? Closer? These is a good example of hard work.

Since You've Been Gone: 7/10: "I felt almost as bad as I did when you were still here"

Gump: 9/10: My favorite parody on the album. The music video is even better!

I'm So Sick Of You: 6/10: My least favorite song on the album.

Syndicated, Inc.: 7/10: Way to underrated. Can't see why this is such a crappy song, I like it.

I Remember Larry: 8/10: I like this song for so many reasons, mainly because of the backwards message: Wow! You must have a lot of free time on your hands (which is true)!

Phony Calls: 6/10: This song is OVERrated.

The Night Santa Went Crazy: 10/10: This is perhaps Al's greatest original song. I can actually see why this is popular.

Overall rating: 8/10

Great accordion, yes, but not a funny song does it make.

1. Amish Paradise. An Al Classic!
2. Syndicated, Inc. The humor gets me from the opening line. "My whole family-loves Three's Company..." It goes without saying,one of Al's best accordion solos. I generally like Al's TV tributes, and he's doing less of them it seems.
3.Gump. Same as above, I'm not sure why Al doesn't tackle as many movies these days, but this was another one well executed.
4.Everything You Know Is Wrong. Another simple,zany example of Al's stream-of-consciousness songs. This one featuring some good accordion as well.
5. I Remember Larry. I really enjoy the 2nd half,hearing about Larry's fate. Only Al could make something so dark sound so hilarious!
6.Phony Calls. Love the song,hate the Simpsons part.
7. Since You've Been Gone. Funny song that doesn't overstay it's welcome.
8. I'm So Sick of You. Decent song with a few laughs.
9.Cavity Search. Cool song,with some funny moments. Hard to divorce it from memories of the horror of going to the dentist.
10. Callin' In Sick. Nothing too special.Some funny lines "What's that little twerp gonna say?"
11.The Alternative Polka. Probably one of the lessor Polkas. I've never liked Alternative/Grunge for the most part,so it's not Al's fault. That's all he had to work with.
12.The Night Santa Went Crazy. One of my least favorite Al songs.
Back off me,man-back off.

Callin' In Sick, c'mon, what a great song. Maybe you should give it a few more listens. :D

instead of reviewing each song I'm going to rank them in my order of favorite. this is probably my favorite Weird Al album of all-time. at one point or another in my life I have individually loved every one of these songs.

1. Since You've Been Gone
2. The Alternative Polka
3. Everything You Know Is Wrong
4. I'm So Sick of You
5. Callin' in Sick
6. I Remember Larry
7. Phony Calls
8. The Night Santa Went Crazy
9. Cavity Search
10. Syndicated Inc.
11. Amish Paradise
12. Gump

Very interesting that I tend to like the 2 main singles least. I think that speaks to the strength of this album since I do love Amish Paradise and would consider it one of his better lead singles following the 80's. Prior to Tacky, I would say Phony Calls was his best track 11.
taste is only something if it is yours.
