  1. “In 3D” was the first Al album I owned. I think I had “Eat It” (the 45 record) first, and got the album (also on vinyl) soon afterward. I later had Dare to be Stupid (also on vinyl) and a couple others before moving on to CDs.

    I like the earlier Al albums more than the newer ones, probably because I enjoyed the source material of the parodies more. Two of my favorite songs from In 3D were Midnight Star and the Theme from Rocky XIII.

    Never had the album and (to the best of my knowledge) never heard any of the other songs on it, but I loved eat it.

  3. In 3-D was one of the best if not *the* best Al album. “Midnight Star” and “Eat It” were standout tracks but the entire album is really top-notch for songs you’re going to walk away singing later to yourself.

    Given the movie industry’s current craze of all things 3-D, I think Al should re-release this puppy with an extra parody or two of then-hits.

  4. I have over time made the move to buying mp3s instead of full albums, but Weird Al is one a handful of artist who I will still go out and buy the album from on day 1.
