A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Even Worse – Weird Al Yankovic [#438]

on November 6, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 06.56.24There was a time when I really wanted this album. I had heard Yankovic’s Fat on a yoof music programme on the telly in the eighties and was amused enough to look out for the album on my regular trips to HMV in Church Street.

I saw it once in the racks but didn’t get it because, like 90% of the music I was interested in, it was on “imported” only so cost a lot more than non-imported albums.

I’m glad I didn’t buy it though. Fat is the only track that’s not too irritating and it is clear that Even Worse was released at a time in Yankovic’s career when his humour started to struggle. Fortunately he claws his talent back in later albums but Even Worse and its predecessor, Polka Party, really are fan only albums.
