When I was in fifth grade, some kids in my grade went around our field day singing "Ode to My Car." I thought it was the funniest thing, at the time, and I sought out this album. Granted, this is no album any fifth grader should be listening to. It's an absolutely hilarious album that is, undeniably, the best work of Adam Sandler's career. Punch-Drunk Love excluded, of course. Mostly spoken skits, What the Hell Happened to Me? provides plenty of genuine laughs all the way through. Strategically placed throughout the album are seven great songs that you won't be able to get out of your head. The only real low point on the album is "The Hypnotist," which resorts to fart jokes to get a laugh. If that track were removed, though, the album would be utterly fantastic.
