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. Several tracks, including the thumping blues rocker "It's Money That I Love" and the Electric Light Orchestra parody "The Story of a Rock and Roll Band", are regarded as some of the best Newman has written.[citation needed]
