AllMusic Review by

For those who don't have a problem with Jerry Springer or traffic accidents, there's Spooky, which presents Wesley Willis' "compositions" in a parodic rock setting; tracks include "Pop That Pussy," "Casper the Homosexual Friendly Ghost," "I'm Sorry That I Got Fat," and the Chicago hometown classic "Steve Albini," a juxtaposition of characters whose humor doesn't depend on Willis' presentation as much as on the sheer strangeness of any connection between him and Albini. The sound of Willis' Fiasco records, however, simply isn't as appealing as his "solo" work with a single Casio (he uses the same pre-programmed rhythm and accompaniment for every song), and pretty much one non-Fiasco record should provide your fill of Wesley Willis.
