Among his Saturday Night Live peers--Chris Rock, Chris Farley, David Spade--Adam Sandler has always been the most musically inclined. It's only natural then that the creator of Opera Man and "The Hanukkah Song" would record What's Your Name, an entirely song-based, and often hilarious, musical parody record. The album's first song commences with one of Sandler's trademark nonsense words--a menacing "Schnoin!"--then goes on to tell the tale of a neighborly old man whose hobby is "Moyda" (or murder). There's also two spot-on snipes at Bruce Springsteen, "The Lonesome Kicker" and "Listenin' to the Radio," and one of the most unsettling dance-floor throw downs you'll ever hear--the P-Funk meets Ween booty-shake of "Dance Like You Just Shit Your Pants." Sandler ransacks just about every musical genre known to western humanity, but it's his unrepentant immaturity, more than his chops, that's sure to make What's Your Name a junior high school bus classic for years to come. --Matt Hanks

"adam sandler is a very funny commedian. His movies are hilarious and his album, "they're Gonna Laugh at You is one of the funniest things I've ever heard in my life. "What's Your Name", however, is just not funny. I think sandler has always wanted to be a musician and he tries to be one on this album moreso than a commedian. "the Lonesome Kicker" is kind of funny and 'The Goat song" is absolutely hilarious, but the rest of the album is just plain boring. It's not funny and the songs aren't good enough musically to listen to despite the lack of humor. When Sandler does skits no one can touch him in the funny department and when he mixes one or two songs in with the skits they work very well, but I'm sorry, he's just not good enough a musician to make a cd with nothing, but songs on it, especially when the words aren't funny."
Pretty Funny, yup.

""Listenin' to the Radio" was probably my favorite. . . Real good. The difference between his movies and music confuses me though. If you're into this stuff, go get it."
