Synopsis

Amazon.com
For his debut, 22-year-old slam-poetry champ Beau Sia offers up 13 edgy confessionals touching on fame, money, sex, megalomania, and Asian cultural stereotypes, among a bazillion other things. Sia's clever words stream in deadpan delivery over a minimal, jazzy hip-hop soundtrack like some urban-targeted collaboration between Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-head, King of the Hill) and Steven Wright. He's at his best in the midst of a rant, and though he sometimes raves way off course, Sia always makes his way back to his favorite subject--himself. In "Superstar" and "World's Greatest MC," Sia pulls out a grotesquely inflated ego whose delusions of grandeur, in the end, aren't far from average daydreams. While some of the cuts suffer from a rather sophomoric humor, Attack! is worth buying just for track 2, "Money." Based around the phrase "When I get the money, I'm gonna...," it's a thought tornado that sees Hanson dead before puberty and Tibetan monks break-dancing at Sia's command. --Mike McGonigal
 

CD Reviews

GENIUS!
Jeremy C. Garland | 08/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those of you who find his material offensive and vulgar, you just need to get out of the BOX. But your opinion is your opinion. Many great geniuses are often misunderstood. Also, he grows on you. I have some friends who at first thought Beau was a sick perv but finally realized his greatness. I love Beau, I have the cd and the book. He's so hilarious yet he has his times when he is more thoughtful and serious (the last track). My favorite tracks on this cd are Money, Love, the Gym, and Howl. Buy this CD! Buy the book! Hmmm.... Beau Sia has a Chinese last name, Beau Sia looks Chinese, Beau Sia talks about being Chinese....could that be because he IS Chinese and not korean? you know, cuz many korean people have korean last names and they also tend to look korean.BEAU SIA FOREVER!"

"Beau Sia is an amazing poet and performer. Sometimes at night when I'm lighting the candles around my Beau Sia shrine and mispronouncing his name (like Die-a), I think to myself that maybe someday I'll get around to fixing that toilet. You have to jiggle the handle everytime after you flush. Buy Attack! Attack! Go! now!"
