Editorial Reviews

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, an audacious mix of historical fact and fiction, redefines America's controversial seventh president--the man who invented the Democratic Party,drove the Indians west, and ultimately doubled the size of our nation--with a raucous blend of outrageous comedy,anarchic theatricality and an infectious emo rock score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Good Ben Walker As America's First Rock Star December 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Easily one of the most talked about stars on stage this year was Benjamin Walker for "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson." Playing at the Public (this soundtrack is associated with that run) earlier this year before moving to Broadway in the fall, the show is closing shop after the new year. And what a shame! With universal critical acclaim and a star making performance, I'd have hoped for a longer run. But, alas, we take what we can get if the show isn't called "Wicked."

The show fashions Jackson as a rebel and a trailblazer. The first "commoner" to be elected President, he was considered the first populist choice. The show showcases Jackson's rise from a humble Tennessee beginning, through his conflicts with the British, his battles with the Indians, and his confrontation with the Spaniards. This is a top notch recording with whip smart lyrics and a pulsing rock beat. Walker shines on his numbers--funny, sexy, powerful--a real leading man. But perhaps one of my favorite numbers is the super clever "Ten Little Indians," a sad, insightful, and blistering song. As the people start to turn on Jackson, the music showcases genuine rawness.

One drawback, however, is that the CD with 13 tracks clocks in at just about 28 minutes. That's pretty short for a complete musical soundtrack and it caught me by surprise. Still, it sounds great and however brief--I love it. KGHarris, 12/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody, bloody good show! August 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This music is better when you have the stage show to watch but if you like EMO style of music - this is for you! If you have a chance to see the musical and it promises to be a good production, then by all means GO! Andrew Jackson was quite the man and the music rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a trip to NYC October 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was in NYC last week and saw BBAJ and the next night Billy Elliot, which is showing acoss the street. Give me the clever Bloody show - not the same old Broadway musical. There is plenty in the show for folks to find offensive. F bombs by the dozens, very awkward sexual references and slandeous statements about native americans, as well as the founding fathers (hilarious!!!). Its done on purpose, guys. The directors's notes make clear the the show is about America in its adolescence. Vulgar and self-absorbed. And funny. So lighten-up. The music is soooo clever and catchy. And smart. I returned to middle-america and picked up American Lion - the excellent biography of Andrew Jackson. And found that much of the show is spot on. Buy the music, see the show. Have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars You had me at "Populism, Yeah Yeah!" June 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Seriously, has there been a better opening number recently? Given the lack of imagination in so many other so-called "rock musicals" the variety in Michael Friedman's score is pleasantly surprising. The concept of this show is interesting to begin with (and, so far, seems to be the sort of thing that audiences either really love or really hate) and the score does a great job of pointing it up. I played this CD for an American History teacher at the school where I teach, and he liked it so much that he started off his lecture on Andrew Jackson by playing this CD. Finally, a CD that musical lovers, emo folks, and history teachers can all love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing History to the Masses December 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Ben Walker enjoys every second of his role as Andrew Jackson, and tells great story about a man who wanted to change the nation, but didn't think he was important enough. (I'm Not That Guy) But, he sees that everyone is ticked off and 'no one is taking a stand', so he decides to enter politics (explained in: The Corrupt Bargin), and becomes the man he thinks the people want to lead the country (I'm So That Guy). Falling in love (Illness as Metaphor) and then losing his wife (Public Life) deeply affected our 7th president. But, he bounced back (Crisis Averted) and was voted in by popular vote (Populism, Yea Yea).

BBAJ is a fantastic play that I was lucky enough to catch while it was off-broadway, at the Public Theater. This play brings a whole lot of historical fact and combines it with fast, fun, relatable contemporary music. This should be used to teach children about history and get adults re-energized into loving it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andrew Effing Jackson July 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Soooo great. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to see this musical in its tragically short run. I discovered it from a few clips on the "YouTube," and as soon as Ben Walker screamed that he was Andrew F---ing Jackson, I knew I had to have it. The music is so catchy and so funny, the first day it came in the mail, I listened to it 3 times over. The only problem is that the soundtrack is so short! I WANT MORE!
