This 1993 set from Weird Al Yankovic collects previously-released, food-themed parodies onto one disc. It's a hokey, hilarious, and often ingenious set, including the classics "Eat It," "Fat," and "I Love Rocky Road"." The album is perhaps a bit too filling, with also-rans like "The White Stuff" and "Addicted to Spuds" clogging up arteries here and there. Likewise, "Spam" seems like too predictable a target for one of music's greatest satirists. Nevertheless, The Food Album is an enjoyable bag of treats. Just don't eat too much, or you'll probably get sick.
