Album Review

If hearing Sandra Bernhard deliver a stately, theatrical version of Cheap Trick's power ballad "The Flame" sounds absolutely delicious to you then there's a lot to love about Everything Bad & Beautiful. If it sounds repulsive, then there's nothing about this one-woman show soundtrack that'll change your mind. The love her or hate her comedienne's first full-length since 1998's I'm Still Here...Damn It! is Sandra at her most Sandra. Celebrities are bitterly cut to pieces, the word "sister" is dropped repeatedly, and that strange mix of skittish, snide, and spiritual is working overtime with fractured narratives of childhood memories drifting into negro spirituals and onto pop songs. There's barely any transition between topics, some references require a cosmopolitan NYC background, and her singing is power over pitch, all of which make her ever so special to her devoted following. The album is filled with reasons for them to celebrate along with a couple key moments that should really be heard beyond her cult. While it's probably not fair to attack President George W. Bush by way of his daughters, Bernhard busts through all good taste barriers and forges on with one of the most vicious and well-constructed attacks imaginable. "I Hate Golf/Mock the Poor" kicks the Cuban cigar-smoking crowd to the curb in one sweet minute and once again Mariah Carey gets the scorn; once again it's hilarious. Topping it off is "Perfection," a strange club track best suited for sardonic dancefloors. [A limited-edition version of the CD was also released.]

EVERY TRACK IS A GEM! MAY I KISS YOU ON THE LIPS MISS SANDRA!

I Love it! This album is so NOW, so in the moment of what is going on today! It's about time, so glad Sandra has found her way to itunes. Plus I was pleasantly taken by the rock tracks especially "Beautiful" and "Pill/kiss Me deadly". My favorite would have to be "motherhood" about Celine Dion and the Video track about Madonna!

Miss Sandra never lets me down!

Great as always, and the bonus tracks are a wonderful surprise!

Best Sandra Bernhard ever!

I not only listen to this CD but I was lucky enough to have seen the show live. She is an engaging and entertaining story teller, very sarcastic and biting, but very funny! Sandra is one of those rare artists that have made a living by speaking her truth in her way with intelligence and an edgy sensibility. Anyone who likes to hear the state of affairs told bluntly with a particularily original view, than this is for you. This recording is part play and part concert, the song choices are great and she is in the best voice of her career, enjoy!

Biography

Born: 1955 in Flint, MI

Genre: Comedy

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Through films, albums, and the stage, Sandra Bernhard developed quite a reputation for herself. Born in 1955, in Flint, MI, Bernhard grew up the youngest of four children. Her father was a proctologist, while her mother was an abstract artist — this is probably where her sense of humor for the ironic developed. At age ten, the family moved to Scottsdale, AZ. Bernhard didn't stay there long; after graduation, she made her way to Los Angeles and to the comedy club circuit. As she developed her...
