5.0 out of 5 stars The First Of Many Inspiring Albums January 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There is no way you will ever get closer to the utopia you experience when you listen to this outstanding album. I hope for the sake of every being in the universe that we will see many, many more Macho Man albums in the future. When I first caught a glance of this CD at Walmart, I turned and fell to my knees while time literally stopped. Once I regained consciousness I quickly filled a crate with the album and handed the cashier a flying elbow drop! When I placed the CD onto the tray of my stereo system, I knew at once that my life had culminated to that point, my purpose was to witness the sick, wicked, and nasty beats that were about to pulsate through the earth itself and energize my very life force. When the tray recalled itself back into the stereo console, it was as though the final puzzle piece of human existence had been put into place. Rainbows began to pour inexplicably out of the speakers and onto my terrace. The windows flew open and The Macho Man himself floated in on a winged platinum unicorn. He gave me a $5 gift certificate at Radio Shack and told me that I was the chosen one. He said that He and I would lead mankind out of poverty and strife forever. He said we must hurry, unimaginable evils were gathering and following him and there was not much time before he would have to face them. As we prepared to embark a low rumble could be heard in the distance. Hardly decipherable at first, but it began to grow louder, and apparently closer. The sky darkened rapidly and took on a red-orange tint. The rumble grew exponentially louder and more fierce, and the ground began to shake. Without warning an enormous crack in the planet's surface appeared and a great mountain of rock and molten lava shot up from the center of the earth with the force of ten trillion mighty buffalo.

Format:Audio CD
Randy Macho Man Savage's excursion into the hip-hop arena represents an pivotal moment for American culture and civilization. In creating his recording, "Be A Man", Savage throws out all conventional ways and approaches to artistic expression and replaces them with new structures and processes of analyzing the age-old problematics brought about by human conflict, identity and belonging.

Savage manages to do this by utilizing a multi-disciplinary, consilient approach (which E.O. Wilson would be proud of) by synthesising elements of American popular culture such as wrestling and hip hop. In Sartre's existentialist tradition, Macho utilizes the elements available in his times and environment to revalidate and giving meaning to what had become a meager existence, while at the same time elevating & liberating the rest of humanity to another level of meaningful existence.

Examples of this new paradigm of human expression abound in this ouevre. From the cd cover photo, which shows Mr. Macho manipulating the chains which symbolize the possibility of humanity's ability to break away from the chains of oppression that enslave us all and prevent us from leading a truly meaningful existence, to his aptly named title track, "Be A Man" which utilizes his rivalry with Hulk Hogan as a metaphor for the conflict between a superficial and unfulfilling material existence and a meaningful and rich human spiritual existence. This truly is a paradigmatic change that T. Kuhn would find exemplary.

This is a seminal must for any one's artistic recordings collection, for it is destined to be a classic and the topic of scholarly and intellectual discussions for quite some time.

Five stars is not enough to show the importance of this recording. Perhap all the stars in the Ursa Major constellation would be more fitting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Macho Hits is more like it!!! June 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The only reason this album didn't get 5 stars, is due to the fact that after 1 full listen, I went on a frenzy of eating nothing but slim jims for 3 months straight and drinking red bulls to wash them down causing 6 heart attacks, 11 arrests, and 3 restraining orders, bottom line is, you don't want macho man all up in your grill, because this cd will snap you like a slim jim, in the words of randy savage himself "ohhhh yeah"

RIP Elizabeth

5.0 out of 5 stars greatest album ever August 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album was not created by a mere mortal. This album was made by God himself, and handed down to the greatest rapper of our time, Randy Savage. Macho Man shows range that the written word just doesnt do justice. If this album doesnt go platinum 10 times over than the greatest tragedy of our generation has occured. Move over Sgt. Pepper, the greatest album ever is ready to take its throne.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be scurred. Es muss sein! December 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In the tradition of the great composers, the Macho Man (or, more apt in this context, the Macho King) has, in his autumnal years, created some of the most profound and searching works in Western art.
But whereas Bach chose the ancient fugal form to test his compositional prowess in "Die Kunst Der Fuge", Savage decides to exhibit his complete mastery of the hip-hop form in "Be A Man". And Macho proves to be the most impressive of the two, for it is much more difficult to write music of such awe-inspring beauty as an iconoclast than as a regurgitator of archaic ideas.
And when since Beethoven's late string quartets has anyone so plumbed the depths of human experience as the Macho King has here? Even the Cavatina from the fifth movement of Beethoven's Op. 130 cannot compare with the gravitas of this utterance from Macho's crew: "C'mon don't be scurred, you're afraid of Macho Man is what I heard". Simply stunning.
In sum, this is an incomparable masterwork and an invaluable musical document. It deserves to be heard by all ears (and all ears deserve to hear it), for one cannot claim to have knowledge of music, or indeed humanity itself, until one lives with this album. Although Bach and Beethoven waited until their final works to express their innermost thoughts in music, if we are lucky, there will be many more Macho compositions to come. Savage urges us to "Feel The Madness", but one would have to be mad not to buy "Be A Man".
