    Weird Al certainly made a good comeback with his cleverly written parodies of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and Miley Cyrus's "Party In The USA." Most songs are so-so, although a few are very good.

    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.

    There is no perfect Weird Al album. Each of his records act as a cross section of culture. They become time capsules.

    The original songs here are, perhaps surprisingly, stronger than the parodies, and Yankovich shines brightest when he is just being funny without a direct target.
