The Aristocrats OST
Although there is very little true “action” in comedy doc The Aristocrats, something is nonetheless lost in the translation to CD. The clips are lifted directly from the film without any re-editing, so you get tracks that jump from audio-bite to audio-bite, from comedian to comedian and you can get lost easily. Maybe it would’ve been better to highlight the best (or worst) versions and/or stories of and about the obscenity-laden joke, like Gilbert Gottfried’s famous public telling two days following 9/11 (conspicuously absent from this disc, as is Carrie Fisher’s subtle reverse account of her childhood). Still, it’s a shockingly funny listen that will give you a heart attack if you do not dose carefully. Remember to lock it away with the liquor and porn when you’re done.
