“Weird Al” is back just in time to take on Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and – best of all -- Bruno Mars, with love-lyrics getting turned into whip-smart rhymes about tattoo addiction and the possibility of catching Hep C. In the past Yankovic has gotten plenty of mileage out of pointing out the differences between violence and sex-filled raps and the listeners’ actually safe and boring suburban lives. This time, he apes The White Stripes on “Cnr” to remind us that lame macho posturing has also always been part of the blues and classic rock. Of course, you should already be familiar with his brilliant, doors-of-perception-altering troll through the charred landscape that is “Craigslist.” His other Silicon Valley dissertations include “TMZ,” “Ringtone” and “Stop Forwarding That Crap To Me.” (Hmmm… perhaps “Weird Al” knows that there isn’t much difference between the mentality of teenage boys and the day-to-day lives of aging office drones.) Also worthy of note is Yankovic’s impeccable musicianship, his obvious love of the harmony-rich A.M. radio psych-pop of his childhood and the fact that the mad-medley “Polka Face” allows him to break out his accordion again.
