"Hey Kids! It's Beezlebozo the Clown!!" Hicks' Best Album

(5 out of 5 stars)
""Who the hell is "Beezlebozo?"You're just going to have to purchase Bill Hicks' "Relentless," to find out. In the short amount of time of hearing about this guy and purchasing one of his albums, (time is about three weeks), I have purchased all five of his albums. Or at least the ones I could find. Bill Hicks has grown on me a lot faster than most of the other comics I have listed to. It's just a shame that he went through life without getting the recognition and respect he deserved. How can a brilliant comic genious be so underrated?"Relentless" is 100% Bill Hicks. Filled with anger and outrageous ideas and theories, Bill Hicks is able to make us laugh and think at the same time. He was a man who did not know any fear, and was not afraid to talk about stuff that other comics wouldn't even dare to think about. He doen't follow the traditonal formula, as in talking about love, marriage, and family. No, he talks about drugs, war, politics, and a whole bunch of other things.This is by far the best Bill Hicks CD. I really enjoyed listening to every track. Bill will be missed, and it's up to us to make sure that more people know about him. Hicks was, and still is, a comic genius who knew how to entertain. A great commentator and observer, he was.We miss you Bill! R.I.P."
The Comedy of Hate

"I first discovered Bill Hicks through some specials shown on Comedy Central right before he died in 1994. I thought he was brilliant, but I could only see the clips. In 1998, I found out that he had recorded 4 albums, and I quickly rushed out to by them. I found all of them hilarious and true, but Relentless touched me the most. His genius cannot be underestimated, and I actually try to live by some of his ideals. When I quote him to my friends (many of whom I have turned on to him since then) I always say I am quoting the "Gospel According to Rev. Bill Hicks". His social commentary is so exact and so biting, that even if one is the direct object of his barbs, you cannot help but laugh. A true comedy genius, who I think will be rediscovered in the years to come and will posthumously take his place alond side such twisted geniuses as Andy Kaufman, Lenny Bruce, and Richard Pryor as the one of the greats of American comedy."
