Led by the tongue in cheek single "Bigger Than the Beatles," Joe Diffie's fifth album Life's So Funny delivers the relaxed, funny contemporary country that fans have come to expect from the singer. Life's So Funny isn't as consistently engaging as his previous Third Rock from the Sun, yet its warm sense of humor and varied collection of ballads and midtempo rockers make it a worthy follow-up to the most popular record Diffie ever released. ~ Thom Owens
