Product Description

Rock,Chris ~ Roll With The New

Amazon.com

Never mind the weak material he was relegated to on Saturday Night Live: Upon leaving the show, Chris Rock suddenly became the funniest man in America. Roll with the New, his sophomore album, mixes a variety of elements--song parodies, skits, even one of those hokey routines where a reporter's questions are "answered" with clips from records. But most of the of the album consists of Rock's stand-up act, in which he fearlessly takes on the subjects of the day--Marion Barry, O.J., and "niggas vs. black people." It's devastatingly funny, and sufficiently thought-provoking to earn Rock comparisons to predecessors such as Richard Pryor and Paul Mooney. Rock's bit on "tossed salad" in prison will probably make you toss your cookies. But it's hilarious nonetheless. --Daniel Durchholz

Let me preface this review by saying that I am a huge Chris Rock fan, having bought nearly everything that he has done on both DVD and CD. But "Roll With the New" is little more than select excerpts from "Bring the Pain" with a few sophomoric Ren & Stimpy style toss-ins, which really aren't up to Chris Rock's normal level. Somebody at Dreamworks figured they could make a boat load of extra money by tossing in 20% original though mediocre content with regurgitations of the best parts of BTP.
Do yourself a favor: Save your money and get more laughs by buying "Bring the Pain" and "Bigger and Blacker" instead.

Chris Rock is surely one powerful comedian, but this CD does not do him justice. There are too many studio-mixed tracks, too much auxiliary stuff beside his straightforward stand-up act, but it is Chris Rock talking that you want to hear, not annoying interference of second-grade content that is equivalent to warm-up artist at a superstar's concert.
His texts are impeccable, delivery is powerful with finely judged rhytm. It is this rhytm that captivates and brings you to the climax of laughter.

I was on a road trip with a friend recently and we were reminiscing about Chris Rock's old stand-up routines so I went to amazon prime and downloaded this CD to listen to. We laughed until we cried and the trip was over in a jiffy.

Chris Rock says so many things that are so true but no one else will say them. Rock on, Chris!!

I have laughed many an hour away with this album. However, some of the short bits fall short of the standup maestro that he is. Variety? Sure, there's variety, but something just doesn't work with the non-standup bits. They are funny, just not as top notch as aforementioned. I do agree that Chris Rock -is- the funniest man in America. Enjoy!

I love Chris Rock but I think that the skits were a bit much and he could just stick to the standup. It was cool though. The parts that were funny were ridiculously funny and I could listen to them over and over again

I was not surprised to read that Chris Rock was named one of the Top Five stand up comedians of all time. His combination of intensity, showmanship, and first rate material just cannot be matched by mere mortals. His talent is never more evident than in this live performance from a decade ago. I don't always agree with him or appreciate what he is saying, but the brilliance of his shtick cannot be questioned. There are a few segments here that, even though I've seen the DVD several times, still leave me grasping for air. The fact is that a man like Chris Rock can implode political correctness far better than a legion of intellectual commentators ever could. He shows the PC mores and rules to be as ridiculous as they truly are, and has the skills and appeal to spread the word wide and far. Thank God for Chris Rock.

Better than his premiere album, Born Suspect, Chris Rock always has something to say about life. He combines just plain sillines with dialouge that really makes you think. I loved this CD and if you like comedy, you will too!

I think that this CD is funny as hell but there are a lot of dumb clips that make you feel like you have wasted your money. It's wroth having though, so just record it off a friend!
