5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Missed, 25 Aug 2001
This review is from: Rant In E-Minor (Audio CD)
Bill Hicks is the best comedian of the 20th Centuary. Controversial comment I know, but listen to ANY CD and you'll soon agree.
Rant, is perhaps his most polished CD in that it flows as an album much better.
Rant is also his most bitter and cynical album in that alot of the material was written and performed when he knew about his cancer. Hick's vicious outbursts are provocative, intelligent but above all - True. Almost everything he says, you think to yourself "He's got a point there".
Rant's material is hilarious but it isnt full of jokes. Its just him discussing his perception of the world. And the saddest thing of all is that the world lost someone who saw things from a different view point yet was right. He could've made a great President (if he didnt despise the people that is).
The highlights of the CD are plentiful. "Artistic Role Call" where he, literally, rants about Jay Leno. "Easter" and "Gideons" are extremely funny. "Rush Limbaugh" is distasteful, yet you can kinda see where he is coming from. And "Waco (Koresh)" / "The Pope" are the best on the album.
Buy this album and you'll become enlightened in a way you never thought possible.
In Bill We Trust.
