This is classic Al but with a modern set. It is awesome, plain and simple.
Mandatory fun! Amazing album
I've been an Al fan since Even worse (Fat) circa 1988 and I get so excited waiting for each and every new album that Al graces us with.
Mandatory fun does not disappoint. It parodies a variety of chart topping tunes of 2014 and the result is genius. It's great I hear some pastiches in the style of older artists too! Al is so talented, I feel privileged to have seen him live in back on his only UK your dates.
Anyway...I'm really happy Al decided to write one of his long story tunes like alberquerque, the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota, genius in France.
Congratulations on achieving number 1 on billboard 200! Well deserved and an ESSENTIAL album to add to your collection. It's intelligent, tuneful and ridiculous! Classic al!

LIKE A BOSS
Weird al has done it again another masterpiece
By Jordan A L
After all the songs weird al has produced he can still make great original tunes in true weird al style!
Weird Al Yankovic. A return to form.
He really nails it with this album. Stand out tracks are Foils a take on Royals by Lorde, Tacky his take on Pharrell Williams's Happy but the best is Inactive his take of Imagine Dragons Radioactive. Top album.
King of Parody :D
Another peice of proof that Weird Al is the king.
Shame this is his last Album :/
Business as usual for Weird Al
By Andrew Tanner
Album is incredible as I expected it to be. My only issue is with the digital booklet, which both Windows 8 reader and Adobe Reader are unable to open as it is 'not a valid PDF file'.
Anyone else having this problem?
