BAD LUCK STREAK IN DANCING SCHOOL is Warren Zevon's third great album in a row.
On the title track, he examined his bad habits in a sarcastic manner which anyone with ANY addiction (drugs, alcohol, tobacco, food, caffeine) can understand, while "Jungle Work" humorously describes mercenary violence in a way that inspired me to do what I need to in order to remind myself that "carb"...
My #1 choice would be "Bad Luck..." Zevon's classical training shines here, colliding with his off-the-wall lyrics, resulting in perfection.

 Warren Zevon : Forgotten Rock Star (JMcQ) by JMcQ
Another strong album, but one that is much more darker in tone than its predecessors, Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School had the major hit “A Certain Girl” (#45 on Billboard charts), and the chest-beating “Play It All Night Long”, the emotion-filled “Jeannie Needs A Shooter”, and the immensely introspective “Gorilla, You’re A Desperado”.
On the heels of Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School, Asylum released Stand in the Fire, a live album that collected his greatest hits; “Excitable Boy”, Lawyers, Guns, and Money”, “Poor, Poor Pitiful Me”, with a number of new and unreleased songs, “Stand in the Fire”, “Sin”, “Bo Diddley”.
1982’s The Envoy would be the flipside of Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School, dealing with the continual process of being sober and the changes that Zevon had made in his life since his detoxification.

Warren Zevon, Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School (1980, Elektra/Asylum)
While Bad Luck Streak produced a couple of memorable tracks -- particularly the satiric take on Southern life and Southern rock, "Play It All Night Long," and "Jeannie Needs a Shooter," co-written with Bruce Springsteen -- much of it sounds forced.
Bad Example" and "Excitable Boy" -- the latter showcasing a dazzling display of classical/boogie piano; a devastatingly bitter "The Indifference of Heaven;" incredibly greasy slide work on "Worrier King;" the tour-de-force guitar interlude on "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" and a funeral-march take on "Play It All Night Long" to wrap things up.

Excitable Boy earned Warren Zevon a hit single ("Werewolves of London") and the mainstream success he richly deserved, but his new fame came with a price; the hard-living Zevon did not react well to the temptations that come with rock stardom, and in the wake of Excitable Boy he had developed a severe drinking problem.
Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School was cut as Zevon was working hard to stay clean and sober and put his career back on track, and it projects an ambition and strength of focus that was decidedly absent from Excitable Boy.
While Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School didn't quite return Zevon to the top of his game, it made clear that the quality of Warren Zevon was no fluke, and is a stronger effort than Excitable Boy in nearly every respect.

 Rolling Stone : Warren Zevon Takes Control: Warren Zevon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
That approach did make for a fairly imperative-sounding, reckless-spirited brand of rock and roll, but it also left Zevon wondering whether his best songs were evidence of a real and self-determined artistry or merely the product of an alcohol-immersed sensibility.
Not even the album about his cure, the sadly underrated Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School (1980), or his live LP, Stand in the Fire (1981), could fully settle Zevon's self-doubt.
Both were fit and fierce ways of celebrating his new sober life, but neither offered many clues about what was to take the place of old inspirations.

Some schools (or magazines) would increase the number of points even further by assigning plus, minus, or neutral signs; a minus would be on the low end of the score, a plus on the high end, and neutral for dead in the middle.

In a time when the words "musical genius" are thrown around with reckless abandon, Warren Zevon is now and will be remembered as an artist who carved out his own path and did his own thing unaffected by what was "hot" and what was "not" at any given time.
Bad Example?" Diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and given only a short time to live, Zevon immediately began work on what presumably will be his last album, The Wind.
On it, he gets some all-star help from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Dwight Yokam, Don Henley, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and many others who come to pay their respects to a one-of-a-kind songwriter.
