1. Beverly Hillbillies- I started liking it after i heard it in concert, and the guitar solo at the beginning is cool 8/10

2. Gandhi II- Weird but funny 7/10

3. Attack of radioactive hamsters from a planet near mars- Its different but ok 7/10

4. Isle Thing- worst parody on the album 5.5/10

5. Hot Rocks Polka- Pretty good medley of the Stones's songs 7.5/10

6. UHF- a classic with an even greater video 9/10

7. Let me Be Your hog- Good little filler song 7/10

8. She drives like crazy- Hilarious lyrics and the way Al sings it 10/10

9. Generic Blues- I dont think any other Al song has made me laugh so hard! 10/10

10. Spatula City- YAY!!!!!!!! 8.5

11. Fun Zone- Its alright 7/10

12. Spam- Good song 8/10

1. BEVERLY HILLBILLIES--5/10 Nothing special.

2. GANDHI II--5/10 Sound clip. Blah.

3. ATTACK OF THE RADIOACTIVE HAMSTERS FROM A PLANET NEAR MARS--8/10 Good original.

4. ISLE THING--7/10 Pretty good parody...

5. THE HOT ROCKS POLKA--4/10 My least favorite polka.

6. UHF--9/10 VERY good song.

7. LET ME BE YOUR HOG--10/10 Best. Song. Ever.

8. SHE DRIVES LIKE CRAZY--9/10 Good parody.

9. GENERIC BLUES--9/10 Very good blues song.

10. SPATULA CITY--5/10 Blah. Sound clip.

11. FUN ZONE--10/10 A VERY good instrumental. It's so catchy!

12. SPAM--10/10 Best parody here.

13. THE BIGGEST BALL OF TWINE IN MINNESOTA--10/10 Nice way to end the album.

Personally, I hate how Al put the 2 sound clips on this album. He could have used that space for 2 more songs.

Money For Nothing / Beverly Hillbillies: I don't like the Beverly Hillbillies and this is a very overrated song. With that in mind I hand out my first score, a 6 / 10.

Gandhi II: Very funny skit, a great twist on history but can be very boring unless you've seen UHF. I like it so I'll give it a 7 / 10.

Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters From a Planet Near Mars: Good song but a bit redundant. I never really cared for it too much so I'll give it a 6 / 10

Isle Thing: I really don't like this song at all. It's not a very good parody and lacks the very roots of what Al's all about, humor. This one deserves its 5 / 10

The Hot Rocks Polka: This is one of my favorite polkas (ignore Jace :P) Al does a very good job of capturing the feel of the songs and putting them to a faster beat. Very good, Al, You get 9 / 10

UHF: Very good song about a very good movie. The song takes some getting used to, though. I like it and the video, although it gets less and less recognizable as the years go by, is very funny. 9 / 10 for you.

Let Me Be Your Hog: Funny skit. I love the effect that it has on those hearing it for the first time. 9 / 10, yay!



I have to go now but I'll finish my review later.

1. Money For Nothin/Beverly Hillbillies- 5.5/10 It's an okay song.

2. Gandhi II- 8/10- Hilarious clip. It's good when you just hear it, but when you see the clip, it is hilarious.

3. Attack of radioactive hamsters from a planet near mars- 7/10 It's good, not great but good

4. Isle Thing- 8/10- I actually like this song, I think it's a great parody.

5. Hot Rocks Polka- Pretty good medley of the Stones's songs 9/10- One Of My Favorite Polkas

6. UHF- 10/10- Excellent

7. Let me Be Your hog- 10/10 Extremely funny.

8. She drives like crazy- 1/10- Least favorite song on the album

9. Generic Blues- 10/10- So great I love the "Make it talk son, make it talk. *guitar gets repetitive* Okay, now make it shut up" :lol:

10. Spatula City- 8/10- I feel about this song the same way I feel about Gandhi II

11. Fun Zone- 10/10- If you are just sitting at home listening to it, it's an okay song. But, after you hear it live in concert, it gives you chills down your back everytime you hear it. Excellent.

12. Spam- 9/10- Great Parody

13. The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota- 10/10- The best original on this album.

This is out of the ones that I heard...

Money for Nothing/Beverley Hillbillies - liked the original but this one is a) too short and B) not amusing so 5/10 (I added three points because it's Money for Nothing)

UHF - Catchy, but on average I don't listen to it that often. 7/10

Generic Blues - good at parts but blargh. 4/10

Spam - good song. 8/10

Biggest Ball of Twine In Minnesota - GOLD! 10/10 (I added three or four points for the pickled wieners bit)

That makes 6.8 out of 10 average - JUST more than what I gave Poodle Hat! (6.7)
