    Alpocalypse may not be his strongest record, but it does what only Weird Al Yankovic can do, and he's been doing for nearly 30 years now, so he must be doing something right.

    The jokes don't always relieve the earworm annoyingness of the Xeroxed tunes. Still, you can only hate so much on an accordion medley titled "Polka Face."

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I don't think that this man can make a bad album. This album is no exception. He creatively uses themes and songs that everyone knows and creates his own "Frankenstein" of a song with each one. He offers a wider variety of song choices in this album with pop parodies (from Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, etc.) and alternative/rock parodies (from The White Stripes, The Doors, and Queen). The polka in this album is one of the better ones, poking fun at #1 hits on the radio and other popular songs that everyone is tired of. The absolute best of this album are "Perform This Way", "CNR", "Craigslist", "Skipper Dan", "Polka Face", and "Ringtone". Another gem in the music industry by the funniest parody man alive, "Weird Al" Yankovic! Buy it now! Full Review »
