Synopsis

Amazon.com
Bill Hicks was crass, obstreperous, and undeniably offensive. He was also one of the funniest comedians ever, in the malicious tradition of George Carlin and Lenny Bruce, hiding social commentary in the bluster of standup. Rant in E-Minor is probably the best introduction to his work, containing his opinions on such tame subjects as abortion, gays in the military, and Rush Limbaugh. Agree with him or not--and you'd be hard put to find anyone who agrees with everything Hicks had to say--it's devilishly clever stuff; even the dated material is still funny and fresh. Hicks was a twisted genius of the highest order, and he's sorely missed. --Genevieve Williams

Bathe, wash, baptise, cleanse yourself in this 73-minute cascade of pure, uncut bile. Funny, vitriolic, hate-filled and as loving a testimony as only a singular duality like Bill can deliver. Squeegee your third eye.

"If there is one Bill Hicks album you must own, Rant In E Minor is it. No, I take that back, if there is one album in general that you must own, Rant In E Minor is it. This album will seriously change the way you look at everything. It was his last stand up performance ever, after he learned he was terminally ill with pancreatic cancer. He takes no prisoners with this one. Everything he says is like another blow to the gut. He had a way with words like no other. I agree with the people that say that Bill Hicks was more of a philosopher than a comedian, well a philosopher with punchlines I guess. This performance was executed with passion, honesty, and sincerity. He uses his time onstage to shed light on true human thoughts and emotions. You know? The stuff that everyone thinks about, but acts offended when brought up verbally. Check out the end of his hilarious Pro Life bit. His stuff is like fertillizer for the ever growing mind. I'll wrap this up by saying this, if you don't own this, scroll back up and click the add-to-cart icon right now!"
Bill Hicks...smarter than the averege comic

"Rant in E-minor is Bill Hicks at his best. Not holding anything back. At all. Right from the start,no one is safe. From Billy Ray Cyrus to George Bush, Hicks' addresses many issuses that the averege comdeian usually stays away from, such as Abortion to Gays in the millitary. This, out of all four major releases, is by far the best. Though Rant in E-minor is better off to save as the last of Hicks' CD's to buy, because it's so out there, and really truly greatly funny. Bill Hicks ranting under the stars for all of us the apathic masses. RIP Bill, you are missed."
