With an album behind him, Weird Al Yankovic makes much of the improvements expected of new artists when they get a second crack at a release a year later. He premieres the concept of his own band, basically well-trimmed types that looked good in music videos. They also play very well as a unit, so whatever image augmentation was accomplished is just a side benefit.

In 3-D. "Please retry". I have a lot of Weird Al, with most of his early releases on vinyl. I am upgrading them to CD, enjoying them as I go. This albumIn 3-D, I feel was the album that defined his works. In it you'll find a tremendous development from his first effort, the eponymousWeird Al Yankovic. In Weird Al In 3-D you'll find that he has brought his style to its maturity and he just gets better as he goes along.
christangrant "Weird Al" Yankovic in 3-D (often referred to as In 3-D) is the 2nd studio album by "Weird Al" Yankovic. It was recorded October 1st to December 13th, 1983 and was released by Rock 'n' Roll Records. The music on the album is built around parodies and pastiches of pop and rock music of the mid-1980s. These style parodies include imitations of specific artists like Bob Marley and The B-52s. This album marked a musical departure from Yankovic's self-titled debut, in that the arrangements of the parodies were now closer to the originals and the accordion was no longer used in every song, now only being featured where deemed appropriate or wholly inappropriate for comedic effect. The album is also notable for being the first album released by Yankovic to feature a polka medley of hit songs.
