This musical spin-off of the animated television series retained the same skewed-life humor that made the show a hit and tried to instigate a dance craze ("Do the Bartman"). Not really a comedy album, though it certainly contains funny moments ("Look at All Those Idiots," "Deep Deep Trouble"). Despite its smart-ass front, it sneaks in some subversive musical education, too: no album that includes Billie Holiday's "God Bless the Child," Randy Newman's "I Love to See You Smile" and a parody of King Curtis's "Memphis Soul Stew" (redone as "Springfield Soul Stew") can be all bad. ~ Brian Mansfield
