Eh, might as well...

1) Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies - Not really a bad song, but nothing spectacular either. 7/10

2) Gandhi II - Amusing in audio form. Absolutely hilarious on film. 7/10

3) Attack of Radioactive Hamsters From a Planet Near Mars - Terrible. One of my least favorite Al songs. 1/10

4) Isle Thing - Kinda lame, really. Good effort though. 6/10

5) Hot Rocks Polka - Awesome, awesome polka. It rules. 10/10

6) UHF - Nice movie theme. 8/10

7) Let Me Be Your Hog - Humorous, but needs more. A lot more. 5/10

8) She Drives Like Crazy - Pretty good parody. 7/10

9) Generic Blues - An excellent example of Al's best originals. 9/10

10) Spatula City - Same as Gandhi, funny on film. 7/10

11) Fun Zone - Very nice instrumental. 9/10

12) Spam - Pretty obvious parody, but done well. 7/10

13) Then Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota - A funny story set to fitting music. Great way to end the album. 9/10

Average: ~7.1 - A decent album with a handful of memorable little gems.

Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies-7/10 It's an okay song. It's really pretty clever. It just strikes me as funny to hear the lyrics to the Beverly Hillbillies theme song sung as a rock song.
Ghandi II-9/10 A very funny idea for a movie. "He's a one-man wrecking crew, but he also knows how to party. 'Give me a steak, medium rare'". :lol:
Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from a Planet Near Mars-8/10. A pretty funny original. It's just a silly song, and I like it that way.
Isle Thing-9.5/10 Very funny. I love how Al brings Funky Cold Medina into it too.'
Hot Rocks Polka-10/10. I'd give it higher than a 10 if I could. It's my all-time favorite polka.
UHF-10/10. Great original, and a great movie theme.
Let Me Be Your Hog-9/10 Short but sweet.
She Drives Like Crazy-9.5/10-Al sounds like Kermit the Frog in it, which makes the song funnier.
Generic Blues-8.5/10. I know this song touches a nerve with some people, but I really find it pretty funny.
Spatula City-10/10. What a great short piece! "We're in the yellow pages under spatulas."
Fun Zone-10/10. Al's only instrumental track on an album. It's very lively, and I love it before the live shows.
Spam-9.5/10. Very funny.
The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota-10/10. One of Al's best originals. It's really awesome.
Overall, the album is very good. It is often underrated. It has a lot of great songs, and few weak points.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

BTW, I now appreciate Ghandi II because of the Mad Lib, TheMeccaOfAlbinoPoodles II.

My review: I like it all except MFN/BH, which I rarely listen to because I played it too much when I was younger, and AOTRHFAPNM is one of my least favorite Al songs.

I heard that the UHF Soundtrack is rare, yet I see at least one copy in most record stores. Did I miss something?

It's not rare, but for some reason, people think it is. I think that whole rumor may have started because when the Albums were reissued in 1991, UHF Soundtrack was not one of the ones reissued. It was reissued in 1992.
