Weird Al's fifth album sets three precedents. One, he mimics an album cover, i.e. Michael Jackson's Bad. Two, it's the first time he took a year off inbetween recordings. Three, there is no polka medley here. Four, the album's title, in comparison to his previous releases, is accurate--even worse, though it's merely good, not great.
"Fat", sending up Michael Jackson's "Bad" and is about someone very on the portly side, who's got "more chins than Chinatown" and who "takes up seven rows in a movie theatre." Some of the material seems like a reconstruction fat jokes that have been told in junior or high schools.
"Stuck In A Closet With Vanna White" is a guitar rocker with weird dreams told to a psychiatrist. It's bizarre, not too funny.
"(This Song's Just) Six Words Long" sends up George Harrison's "Got My Mind Set On You", dwelling on the simplicity of the song and not too substantial verses. When Al sings "I never wrote the lyrics", he is right. George was doing a cover of a Rudy Clark song, so despite Al's poking fun, it isn't the Quiet One's fault. Hey, it did get to #1.
"You Make Me" is a quick-tempo new wave Cars or Devo-like song, with alternating levels of weirdness. "you make me wanna write dozen book reports then pack myself in styrofoam", "you make me wanna make a model of the Eiffel Tower out of Belgian waffles",
"you make me wanna do my laundry in the dark, and use a recommended bleach." Weird but surreal.
Then comes a send-ups of one of two Tommy James covers that went to #1 in 1987. "I Think I'm A Clone Now" is about having oneself duplicated. "I guess you could say I'm beside myself." and being born "without a father and a mother, just a test tube and a womb with a view" are some of the clever lyrics here.

On his first four albums "Weird Al" Yankovic fell into something of a rut. Perhaps it was the demands of putting out one album a year for four straight years, but when the best song on a "Weird Al" album is the polka medley, that is not a good sign. So after skipping a year Yankovic made his first "comeback" in 1988 with "Even Worse." There were those who thought it was dangerous for "Weird Al" to go back to another parody of Michael Jackson again after the success of "Eat It," but funny is funny and that is the bottom line in the musical satire business. With "Even Worse" Yankovic adds the movie cover parody to his repertoire, proving that if a curly haired guy wearing classes and a thin mustache dresses up with the King of Pop it is going to get a laugh. Of course, "Even Worse" plays well off of "Bad" as a title as well and this is one of those albums where a lot of sales can be traced to the successful music video.
"Even Worse" was the best "Weird Al" album to date. After his self-title debut album Yankovic put together his own band and while the accordion still announced its presence with authority (e.g., "Lasagna"), a key element in his musical satires was that the music sounded as good as the original; only the words had been changed, to humorous effect. With this fifth album the key lesson "Weird Al" learned was that he did not have to look at the current Billboard charts for this targets.

This is the first album where Al parodies the actual album cover of another album in his album design ie Bad by Michael Jackson.
Of course the biggest song of all time is located on this album which is of course Fat (parody of Bad). You will not find a funnier song anywhere else throughout history. This Song's Just Six Word Long (parody of I've got my mind set on you) which is actually seven words long but who cares the song is brilliant, Lasagna (parody of La Bamba), Alimony (parody of Money Money) and I think I'm a Clone Now (parody of I think I'm Alone Now) are other great parodies.
Sensational original songs such as Good Old Days (hilarious tale about a guy remembering his childhood) Melanie (a stalker's tale about a girl he likes), You Make Me (about TV's influence) and Stuck in a Closet with Vanna White (she turned the letters on Wheel of Fortune for those of us outside the USA) along with other songs will keep you laughing.
This is a classic you have to buy it

I bought this CD tape to at a yard sale a couple of years ago. At that time, I only owned "Bad Hair Day." over the years, I have bought all of Weird Als al-bums. I recently listened to it. I loved it! It was pretty good. So it's not Bad Hair Day, it's still a quality al-bum. Here is my evaluation:
Fat: 5/5 Although I do not like it as much as other Al fans (It's about my 40th favorite), I can appreciate it.
Stuck In a Closet With Vanna White: 2/5 It has it's moments.
(This Song's Just) Six Words Long: 5/5 I like it, but that's just me.
You Make Me: 3/5 Okay.
I Think I'm A Clone Now: 3/5 I think this one is okay.
Lasagna: 4/5 Good parody.
Melanie: 5/5 Laugh out loud funny (remember, that's my opinion).
Alimony: 4/5 Good
Velvet Elvis: 0/5 One of his worst.
Twister: 4/5 Good, but short.
Good Old Days: 5/5 LOVE IT!!!!
35/45 Very Good!
This al-bum doesn't have a lot of great songs, but a ton of good ones. Although it may not look good, as a whole, this is a good al-bum.
