Reviewing In 3-d

You know the rules.

1. Eat It - True, it's not as funny as "Fat" and just has a regular guitar solo, but Rick Derringer does an awesome job with the solo, plus it was one of the songs that really got me into Al. (Also, its video was the first Al video I ever saw.) 9/10

2. Midnight Star - Love it! Hilarious and witty lyrics (what's even better is that, I believe, most of them were actually tabloid headlines), plus some awesome music. 9/10

3. The Brady Bunch - For a TV song (or rather any Al song), it's below par, largely because it's lacking in the creativity department--in fact, I would say it's almost as uncreative as "Syndicated Inc." However, I like the line "You can watch til your eyes fall out of your head / That would be OK with me", but that's only a small part. 4/10

4. Buy Me A Condo - An admirable attempt at reggae, but it's pretty repetitive, and not all that funny. 6/10

5. I Lost On Jeopardy - Could there be a better substitution for an instrumental than the Don Pardo speech? Didn't think so. 10/10

6. Polkas on 45 - I love this polka! It's awesome to hear classic rock songs performed polka style, with a well-placed gun shot during "Hey Joe" to boot. 8/10

7. Mr. Popeil - Good original, but not great. The lyrics are clever, and the music is pretty good, but Al's vocals are pretty weak on this one. (However, I don't care much for Fred Schneider's voice, so that may have something to do with it.) 7/10

8. King of Suede - Awesome parody! Musically and vocally, it's practically dead on with the original, and it isn't too shabby lyrically either. 9/10

9. That Boy Could Dance - This one is overlooked too often. Its lyrics are very funny, and it has solid musicianship (although the music reminds me a bit of that of "One Of Those Days" and "Stuck in a Closet with Vanna White"). 7/10

10. Theme From Rocky XIII - When I first heard this song, I wasn't too keen on it. While it's grown on me some, it's still not one of my favorites (perhaps I'd like it better if I was a bigger fan of the Rocky movies). 7/10

11. Nature Trail To Hell - This one should be a staple of Halloween parties... as long as you don't serve Cheez Whiz while playing it! 10/10

1. Eat It - The song that made Al a house hold name over night. Great song, sounds like the original. Love the musical hands. 10/10

2. Midnight Star - Great song, just has the 80s feel to it. Al actually looked though old tabloids to write it. 10/10

3. The Brady Bunch - Love the song, sounds just like the original. Captain Kangaroo brings me back. 10/10

4. Buy Me A Condo - One of my less liked Al songs, seems like it's just filler. I do like the Am-way reference just because that part of the song is so true. 5/10

5. I Lost On Jeopardy - Great song, love the video. 10/10

6. Polkas on 45 - Al's first polka, nicely done. Great accordion work. 10/10

7. Mr. Popeil - Classic song about infomercials. 8/10

8. King of Suede - Nice parody, it sounds like the original. 8/10

9. That Boy Could Dance - Reminds me of this guy in high school I knew named Jimmy, but he couldn't dance. 8/10

10. Theme From Rocky XIII - This is a funny song because I can actually picture it in my mind. Music is great. 9/10

11. Nature Trail To Hell - Classic satire of all those cheap 80s horror flicks. 9/10

1. Eat It - Great parody. 10/10

2. Midnight Star - Great song, really funny. 10/10

3. The Brady Bunch - Good song, but I don't like it as much as I do some others. 7/10

4. Buy Me A Condo - Not one of my favorites. 6/10

5. I Lost On Jeopardy - Definitely one of my favorites. 10/10

6. Polkas on 45 - Al's first polka. Love it! 10/10

7. Mr. Popeil - It's a good song... 8/10

8. King of Suede - Good parody. Not one of his strongest. But still good. 7/10

9. That Boy Could Dance - Great song! Probably my favorite on the album. 10/10

10. Theme From Rocky XIII - Good song. Um, it's not one of my favorites, though. 8/10

11. Nature Trail To Hell - Kind of long, and most of it's just saying "Nature Trail To Hell - In 3-D!". Good, and funny, though. 9/10

Eat It- 10/10. A classic. It's extremely witty and funny. Al does a great job. Plus, it's what really made Al famous, so it will always be special to me.

Midnight Star- 9/10. A really funny, clever original. I love the line "They're keeping Hitler's brain alive inside a jar". It's a pretty dead-on satire of tabloids, too.

The Brady Bunch- 4/10. This song just isn't that great. It's not all that clever as far as Al parodies go. It just seems kind of thrown together.

Buy Me a Condo- 8/10. I actually really like this song. I think it's an admirable attempt at reggae and it's pretty clever. I like the line "and I'll have the neighbors over for a weenie barbeque".

I Lost On Jeopardy- 10/10- Another Al classic. Very witty and funny. I love the Don Pardo voice-over.

Polkas on 45- 10/10. What's not to love? The very first polka medley.

Mr. Popeil- 7/10. Al does a pretty good impersonation of that B-52's guy. The song is also a pretty clever send-up of infomercials and the products they sell.

King of Suede- 9/10. One of my favorites. I just love everything about it. It sounds exactly like the original.

That Boy Could Dance- 7/10. I like this one too. It's definitely often overlooked. It should get more recognition.

Theme From Rocky XIII- 9/10. Another very dead-on parody. Sounds almost exactly like the original, and it's freakin' hillarious!

Nature Trail to Hell- 10/10. A great original.

this album is great, i don't own it but i heard a lot of songs off musicmatch jukebox

most of the songs on here are great




3. The Brady Bunch - For a TV song (or rather any Al song), it's below par, largely because it's lacking in the creativity department--in fact, I would say it's almost as uncreative as "Syndicated Inc." However, I like the line "You can watch til your eyes fall out of your head / That would be OK with me", but that's only a small part. 4/10



the brady bunch is great because the parodied song is the safty dance, and that song rocked.

Eat It- I like it. 7/10

Midnight Star- This song is above average. "And the psycics all agree, that the telephone company, will have a brand new servise that will let you talk to the dead" 8/10

The Brady Bunch- It's okay, but it gets annoying after several times. 6/10

Buy Me a Condo- So... repetitive... 4/10

I Lost On Jeopardy- "That's right Al, you've lost!" 9/10

Polkas on 45- Polka always gets a good rating for being polka! 7/10

Mr. Popeil- Meh. I don't know what's so great about it. 5/10

King of Suede- See Mr. Popeil. 5/10

That Boy Could Dance- More people should know how good this song is. Jimmy FTW! 8/10

Theme From Rocky XIII- Pretty good. 7/10

Nature Trail to Hell- And may I end this review on one note: Satan eats Cheez Whiz! 10/10

My top 5 favorite songs from In 3-D are as follows...

5. I Lost on Jeopardy
4. Theme From Rocky XIII
3. The Brady Bunch
2. Eat It (what song could possibly top Eat It right?)

my number one favorite song from In 3-D is...

1. Polkas on 45, it is so awesome. His best one bar none, expecially the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida part on accordion.

WeirdAbbott, you should try to track down "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida Polka" by... Scott Chapin, I think his name was. (Not the song by the same title by 'Loose Bruce' Kerr, that's a different song totally.) It actually IS "In A Gadda Da Vida" played on the accordion.
