    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."

    What is there to say about Weird Al Yankovic other than he's a utter genius?

    Nearly all the tracks are hilarious, with the most memorable being 'Stop forwarding that crap to me' and, of course, 'Perform This Way'. However, not all of the tracks work in execution. 'Polka face' falls flat, whilst 'Craig's list' is a absolute shambles.

    Overall, though, this is a incredibly funny album containing some of Weird Al Yankovic's best songs so far.
