If you can deal with a DLR led Van Halen sound and look alike, pick up 'Freakshow'! It has tons of energy, good guitar riffs, and plenty of cowbell. Marq's screams are the stuff of legend with me and my friends! This disc takes me back to 1981's VH album 'Fair Warning', if only for a moment.

From: stonewayfan Date: February 3, 2002 at 11:25

From: dokken6008 Date: April 8, 2002 at 13:11
One of the biggest wastes of cowshit I have ever wasted three dollars on. Maybe these guys had a couple of hits with their first (probably the reason it is still in print) but after that the Bulletboys sucked dick. 'Freakshow', 'Za-Za' and that Acid Monkey bullshit all seriously suck--find something else to listen to. Listen to Trixter for cryin' fucking out loud.

From: Desslar Date: April 8, 2002 at 14:49
On a couple songs Marq is a dead ringer for David Lee Roth, making for an interesting listen. The rest of the album is rather awkward and grating though.

From: dokken6008 Date: April 9, 2002 at 14:13
Just say it--'Freakshow' is like a condom. Once you have used it once, what the fuck is it good for? Okay, maybe not the best analogy but this cd sucks ass. Anyone thinking about buying 'Freakshow', take my advice and leave it alone. When an elephant lays a turd in your backyard, you don't inspect it and find out what is inside, you wait for it to cool off and then you plug your nose, pick up a shovel and throw that shit in the trash. Same goes for 'Freakshow'--steaming pile of SHIT.

From: Tony Date: April 16, 2002 at 7:20
WOW!!!! What a loser I am. I still dig this cd in 2002 when apparently I'm not supposed to do. When I first got this album I didn'y play it too much but a few years down the line I rediscovered it and now totally dig it. Killer riffs and the songs are better than the debut. I don't listen to critics and while I respect my fellow fan's more I'm glad I just dig what I dig without worrying whether the dude next door digs it.

From: dokken6008 Date: April 18, 2002 at 13:34
Good point. If it sounds good to you, who gives a fuck what someone else has to say about it? We all hear things in a different way and see things in a different light, so maybe 'Freakshow' sounds good to you. Cool, who gives a fuck what we have to say? I always thought of this recording--and still do--as a humongous pile of hippopotamus shit. Variance of opinion. I prefer Bulletboys first to any of their latter material even though their first wasn't all that great in my opinion.

From: JACK Date: May 13, 2002 at 18:33
good album.i like the sound of the bass and the guitar riffs.'THC GROOVE' is a killer song and the video was fantastic, back in the day...Total Rock n' roll attitude and a special sound you recognize immediatly when you hear it.Do i dig that disc? 'HELLL YEEEAAAAHHH!!!'

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 12:09
I liked about 3 tunes off of this one. I don't think the others are that bad but not as good as the s/t. Talk To Your Daughter is one of my favorites. I really don't think he sounds like DLR. Torien's voice is a tad higher. I think their delivery is similar but I like it anyways. I'm sure it was Templeman's idea to use the Van Halen approach. These guys are glam and Van Halen is hard rock.

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 12:27
By the way, 'the others' is referring to the other songs on this album, not their later releases.

From: jason Date: June 2, 2002 at 14:35
You can tell by lissening to both the first and second album that they are V.H. lovers. Look at all the similarities. Producer T. Templeman, Warner Bros. Records and look at photos of Marq Torien (singer). He is trying real hard to be DLR. Also if you lissen to songs like 'Shoot The Preacher Down' you can hear V.H. rip-offs. They are with out question, Van Halen understudies. The first album is the one to own if you want their best music.

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 14:42
I didn't say they weren't VH lovers. I'm merely saying that althought they tried they did not succeed. They sound very different to me even thought they were trying to imitate VH.

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 14:48
Torien's voice doesn't sound the same- it's just his delivery that sounds like DLR. In other words, he uses the same vocal techniques but his voice is not the same.

From: jason Date: June 2, 2002 at 14:56
I know you (Tim) didn't say 'VH lovers', I did. All I was doing was pointing out the similarities between the two bands. I feel you are right about the two bands. I have always thought the same thing.

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 15:21
I didn't say VH's lovers- get your mind out of the gutter- LOL. Sure I didn't use V.H. which is appropriate- I just gave you some credit.

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 15:31
By the way, I meant to use 'though' in the previous statements- 'not thought.' I think the Ughhh disease is contagious if you get my drift jason.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: July 13, 2002 at 16:05
I bought this album when it first came out. They must have changed the albums cover because the one I have has a drawing of a face on it. I wonder why it was changed?

From: David Date: July 13, 2002 at 18:31
Same Jason.

From: Desslar Date: July 13, 2002 at 18:35
The cover I have is made of cardboard and the front folds out like an accordion, so that you look through the keyhole on it and are supposed to get a 3D effect I think.

The one you have was a promo package.

From: TIM Date: July 13, 2002 at 22:57
I've seen 3 covers of this and own two. Dan's right about the promotional. I don't know the story on the other two. They look similar but are differently colored.

From: ROCKDOG Date: July 15, 2002 at 14:01
Not as good as their first effort but still as solid album. Some real rocking stuff on it like 'TLC Groove' and 'O me O my' to name a couple. Great guitar, grooves and harmonies that are worth more than one listen.

From: Greg Date: October 6, 2002 at 17:25
My Cover is of the face too, but I read somewhere that if the your CD cover has the 'face' on it and the name of the band and the name of the CD on the cover too ( FREAKSHOW) it's from Europe, I guess the US version just has the name of the band or something, not that anyone cares, I just thought it might be worth a little more when you try to sell it...later!

From: Gar Date: June 27, 2003 at 2:18
Didn't care too much for this when I first got it. Ended up selling it a while back. Today I saw it for a dollar, and I just couldn't resist picking it up again. Guess what? It wasn't nearly as bad as I remembered. Sure, it's got its fair share of filler, but there are some pretty strong cuts to balance it out.

From: Johnny Cat Date: January 8, 2004 at 4:38
BulletBoys albums(the first 2,after that who cares)were usually half-filler/half good.Marq Torien was annoying,but he had 'charasma' and could work the pipes.This is their best album,only for 'Hell Yeah' and 'THC Groove'.Not enough hooks for repeated plays.Sometimes they just got too weird,which I guess can be admirable.Marq had some really cool stage clothes,though(bellbottoms,ties,turtlenecks...he was a fashion visionary!)

From: sparkyass Date: January 25, 2004 at 1:40
this is without a doubt the rawwest,kickass rock album of the eighties.the thrill that kills,do me raw,freakshow,just to name a few. marc torien had maybe the best voice of the era.mick sweda had a really unique guitar style.this is music to swill jack daniels and screw strippers to.

From: MJ (Marla) Date: January 25, 2004 at 3:08
LOVE the songs 'Talk To Your Daughter' 'Do Me Raw' and 'O Me O My'. Funny thing.....my track listings are not in the same order as what song is actually playing....

From: red Date: March 2, 2004 at 19:37
I liked this album since the first time I heard it. A bit short, but still good.

From: jarett r. Date: May 21, 2004 at 1:33
my copy of this album is currently missing, along with several other albums. keri kelli was briefly a touring guitarist for bulletboys. marq torien and keri kelli were both touring guitarists for ratt.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 12, 2004 at 23:38
An album that people either seem to love or hate. I tend to be on the love side. Bulletboys really crank up the groove factor on this album, thus making the songs less commercial than the first album. 8/10

From: Metal Jay Date: July 30, 2004 at 23:34
Not the worst cd I own...Did they release this cd with 2 different covers? The one I have is not the song as shown on this sight.

From: Blue Tequila Date: July 31, 2004 at 6:22
I just got this and like Marla said the track listing on the back is all screwed up and not even close to the same order as the songs appear on the disc. Oh well, I got it for free. I wasn't as impressed with this as I was with their debut. Love the song 'Hang on St. Christopher'.

From: Border Rat Date: September 28, 2004 at 15:46
I agree with dokken6008.This was one of the most disappointing albums that I ever bought.The vocals are really annoying and the instrumentation has no melody in it even after you have played it 3 times.It got my boot after that!

From: Hairball John Date: November 26, 2004 at 21:46
We played 'Talk To Your Daughter' by request during this weeks show. That song, THC Groove and Hang On St. Christoper are the highlights of Freakshow. Listen to The Hairball John Radio show each week for lost classics, artist interviews and new releases. www.hairballjohn.com - the past is back to kick your ass!

From: ChrisSlade Date: December 18, 2004 at 12:20
What a let down this album was. I love the first disc. Total cheese from start to finish. Don`t waste your money....

From: Rycheage Date: December 18, 2004 at 15:33
Other than 'Hang On St. Christopher' this CD is just a mess. They tried to play on the popularity of the debut and fell WAY short. This is just full of hair cliches and cheese. Avoid.

From: Muddley Date: December 19, 2004 at 13:33
Rycheage, youre totally righte here. Its a bad album, but the track Hang On St Christopher is quite good. That track is the only reason why I have this album.

From: Geoff Date: March 15, 2005 at 23:38
I'm really suprised here. I am one of the many that dislike this CD. It was sad to see because I absolutely adore the debut, but to me this just sounds like a mess and the songs sound so un-structured (not to be taken as meaning original, inventive or interesting, IMO). The best song IMO was clear to me, but apparently few agree. For me, this was a one track CD, and that song is the killer 'Good girl'. I f*cking love that song, but the rest does nothing for me. Huge disappointment

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 11, 2007 at 19:07
Not a masterpiece but with a nice spark!.The first track "Hang on St..."is a killer (as usually first songs in albums have to be) then things turn a little bit bluesy (tracks 5 and 6) then became a little furious ("Huge") and the last track wich is instrumental puts the album where it belongs.In general lines, a good but simple hard rock/glam cd but not essential.7/10

From: rockhardrock Date: August 15, 2007 at 16:40
first:their debut album is the best. second:that one can reach to 1.st one only to its knees. third:this is not bad album!Songs that kicks ass and make that album not bad:"Talk to Your Daughter(the best song on that record)","THC Groove","Thrill that Kills","Hang on St.Christopher"(great cover song)and "Say Your Prayers". what followed next was a disaster but who am i to talk whats good and whats bad?

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 16, 2007 at 0:07
uhmmmmm vaya pense que esta banda seria algo especial pero lo escucho y pues me parece lo mas horroso del HardRock uhmmm 0/10

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 23, 2008 at 18:01
The self-titled was fun, catchy and short. The songs on Freakshow aren't nearly as memorable, and the record seems to go on forever, with the hooks coming few and far between. "Hang On St. Christopher," "Hell Yeah," "THC Groove" and "Talk To Your Daughter"are teh best tunes here, and the rest are near-misses at best.

From: hair metal again Date: July 18, 2010 at 3:16
not so good as the debut ,but again we hear the excellent BULLETBOYS sound,amazing production by ted templeman and some good songs.the problem is that the songs arent so catchy and in the end you dont remember them.my fav is the awesome "good girl" and the "thrills that kills".for me this is essential cause its a classic hair metal release of a fantastic era.there s no such hard rock anymore

From: CC Date: April 27, 2016 at 7:25
It may seem strange to some, but I will always say this is my favourite BB album, with Za Za coming in second. The debut had some great songs on it, but overall it was far too generic. On this one though they took far more risks with songs that were a little more unique. Yes they still had that VH vibe, but songs like THC Groove and Hell yeah took a totally different track, and for me are two of their best songs. Not as party hearty as Smooth up in ya, but have a cool as fuck groove to them.
