"Born Again" is the sixth album by American composer
Randy Newman. It has been generally received by critics as one of the low points in his catalog, though fans were much more merciful with their opinions. On the contrary, several tracks, including the thumping bluesrocker "It's Money That I Love" and the Electric Light Orchestraparody "The Story of a Rock and Roll Band", are regarded as some of the best Newman has written.
