  • The roots-rock Weird Al Yankovic returns with a typically bracing and funny collection of cow punk diatribes delivered with his trademark over-the-top bravado. This time out he makes it clear that he disapproves of masturbating in front of a computer ("I Don't Want No Cybersex"), demolishes various sacred cows ("Disney Is the Enemy," "Drunk Divorced Floozie [The Ballad of Diana Spencer]"), and even takes time for a little rock criticism in "Machines Ain't Music" ("Drum machines," he reminds us, "don't get drunk"). He also finds time to croon "The Ballad of Country Dick," which, the title double entendre notwithstanding, is actually a tender farewell to a kindred spirit, the late Beat Farmers singer Country Dick Manitoba. Pretty hilarious, and the cream of the jest is that his band, the Toadliquors, provides great raunchy backup a la the Stones.
Professional Reviews
CMJ (3/15/99, p.24) - "...the Cincinnati-based wild man opens up a big can of whoop-ass to mock a lollapalooza of issues that plague our cultural and political landscape....nobody could have set the record straighter."
