Bill Hicks was and still is the greatest stand-up comedian that ever lived BAR NONE! He was lewd, pornographic and totally honest with his comedy and he didn't care who he upset because he knew what he was saying was the truth. Hicks was a paradox in that much of his humour was aimed at the country he both loved and hated and the huge contradictions found in the USA. No one was safe from his sharp observations and his intense wit. War, drugs, sex NOTHING escaped his critical eye and like any brilliant comedian he could make you laugh and think simultaneously. This and 'Relentless' are the 2 best Hicks recordings I have found. The others are so so for Hicks but saying that they are still brilliant. Here he is on top of his game, not letting up on issues that are important to many of us. I just wish he was still around to help us make sense of a crazy world but wherever Hicks is he won't have missed the irony of his own death. Genius.
