Weird Al just couldn't pass up an opportunity to spoof “Ridin’ Dirty.” Thanks to the popularity of "White and Nerdy" on the internet, this Weird Al parody became the first top ten hit of his career...

All hail the return of novelty music's reigning king! Straight Outta Lynwood easily bests 2003's Poodle Hat and shows that Yankovic does know what he does best. Part of the secret to Weird Al's success is that he's never been very weird at all, and very rarely are his satires in any way "biting"--or even satires, really. The 11-minute parody of R. Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet" is funny at least for the first listen, but it's hard to ridicule something so largely ridiculous in the first place (plus Jimmy Kimmel totally got the jump on him). The best thing Mr. Yankovic has always done is to take some decent pop tune, change a word or phrase, invent an entirely new premise for the tune, and make an inspired video to go along with it. He does that several times here; Green Day's "American Idiot" becomes the hockey-obsessed "Canadian Idiot," and "White & Nerdy" is a truly inspired take on Chamillionaire's "Ridin'." That song (and video, included here on the dual-disc CD/DVD) is breakneck-paced and so funny it's a disservice to quote from it at all. "Polkarama!" is a return to W.A.'s novelty roots: a handful of mildly dated hit songs (50 Cent to Modest Mouse!) delivered in straight-ahead, sped-up polka style. It's toe-tapping and sweet. Hopefully we'll not have to wait three years for another Weird Al record. --Mike McGonigal

This album by Weird Al Yankovic is very funny with clever, creative lyrics and solid musical arrangements. Whether Al is singing a parody of someone else's song (for example, "White And Nerdy" is a parody of "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire) or doing his own thing completely as in the song "Pancreas," Al always makes me laugh. I was never bored while listening to the CD side of this album; and with the "DualDisc" feature the videos and still photos on the DVD side of the disc were equally awesome and very well done.

I especially like "Pancreas;" the funny racial issues song called "White And Nerdy;" "Confessions Part III;" and "Don't Download This Song." The arrangement for "Polkarama," a really funny medley of songs by artists including The Black Eyed Peas, Pussycat Dolls and The Killers, is terrific. "Trapped In The Drive-Thru" is a pretty long song at almost ten minutes; but the musical arrangement and silly lyrics held my attention.

I agree with other reviewers who write that "Don't Download This Song" has that catchy, inspirational musical arrangement that also pokes fun at songs like "We Are The World." "Don't Download This Song" is strategically placed as the last song on the CD side of the album so the album ends with a song that's not just funny--the song packs a punch with its' arrangement and silly, over the top dramatic lyrics that really go after and lampoon "real life" ballads like "We Are The World."

The quality of the sound is excellent; and the liner notes provide full song lyrics, song credits and some great photos of Al and his band. Awesome!

The DVD side of the DualDisc is easy enough to figure out; one side of the disc is clearly marked "to play CD--this side up" and the other side is marked "to play DVD--this side up." The DVD side of the DualDisc features crystal clear, nicely animated videos of six songs including "Don't Download This Song;" "Weasel Stomping Day;" "I'll Sue Ya" and "Pancreas." Of special interest is a roughly nine minute video of Al and his band in the studio. I was very impressed.

Both the CD and the DVD sides played fine in my portable music player as well as on my PC; so I hope you don't encounter any problems with this format. In the past there were occasional problems playing these DualDiscs.

white and nerdyOverall, this is a very funny CD/DVD combo that proves Al Yankovic has a great talent for making people laugh with his music and funny parodies of popular songs by other artists. I highly recommend this for fans of Weird Al Yankovic and anyone who enjoys funny take-offs on popular entertainment!
