October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

Existing comments about this CD

From: SIXXSWINE Date: April 13, 2001 at 16:49
This was the last disc with the original line-up & you can see why. This must be one of the worst efforts by a band since KISS' Music from the Elder! Yes, folks it's that bad. I think the fact that Ted Templeman wasn't 'in the building' has alot to do with it. It was discs like this that helped people go 'Grunge' in the early 90's. Kurt Cobain should have thanked the Bulletboys for releasing this 'Gem' when they did. Invest in the first two discs instead.

From: Flying Pig Date: August 26, 2001 at 18:22
When Pigs fly....need to say something else?

From: Joe Date: November 2, 2001 at 9:34
Their best album.The ballads (who were missing in the first 2 albums)are superb:good feeling and profound lyrics(especially 'For the damned').The voice of Marc Torien is very bluesy, PURE Rock N' Roll!Reminds me a little of Terence Trent D'Arby,sometimes.Everybody like to talk shit about this band (and all HAIR BANDS in general)but they're REAL rock n' rollers and THEY'RE BACK!

From: WidoMakr Date: January 15, 2002 at 18:20
To all Hard rockers and Fans of the first album...STAY AWAY...what the F were they thinking with this piece of crap....another band that had to stray away from what made them good...asswipes...quote the WidoMakr...never more

From: tomcat Date: January 20, 2002 at 16:33
i kinda liked this album,i like em all except the one with 'american pie' on it... tomcat@dolfijn.Nl

From: HG Date: March 2, 2002 at 22:32
This was a good CD, better than Freakshow. It is NOT a departure from their earlier sound. It is a bit less polished than the earlier ones.

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: March 17, 2002 at 4:22
Plenty of Creative gas in this tank!!!Bulletboys playing on ZA-ZA like its opening night. They climbed higher than ever befor armed with a greater sense of diversity than befor.ZA-ZA is unabashed, fist-in-the-air Rock'n'Roll. The Bulletboys aren't reinventing rock, but only doing what they do best in the days of Rock'N'Roll goes camping look.You guys need to stop listining like,'Hey this band is Bulletboys!' and more like 'Hay lets check this out!' Than realize it's Bulletboy's and then judge.:P

From: dokken6008 Date: April 8, 2002 at 13:23
Another piece of crap. I liked this one a tad bit more than 'Freakshow', but that one sucked badly as well. The Bulletboys made a few hit singles, made some money and built a reputation off of that. I don't have a lot of respect for bands like that. Very mediocre and bland. Boring shit.

From: TIM Date: June 2, 2002 at 12:12
I liked 1 or 2 songs off this one but the rest was very bad.

From: ROCKDOG Date: July 15, 2002 at 14:12
You can tell the band was trying something different. Grundge was taking over and the 'same old stuff' wouldn't cut it anymore. There are some real grat songs on this disc as well as some forgetables. The opening track 'When pigs fly' kicks serious ass. They experiment with some new styles and even throw a balad on the disc. A big departure from the first album but still a worthwhile effort. Obvoiusly the band was at a creative crossroad and was trying to change along with the times.

From: Steve T Date: September 2, 2002 at 7:49
I have always been a fringe fan of the band and I saw them in London at the Marquee. Live they were amazing but on vinyl/cd they have always been patchy. I thought that ZA-ZA was their best album but I played it again after a gap of a few years and it didn't sound too good. The only one that stands the test of time is the debut for me now and that isn't even a great album. The same as the others...2 or 3 GREAT songs and the rest is filler.....but live :- WHOAH

From: nitrodoll Date: September 2, 2002 at 11:43
1 800 goodbye kicks ass.... cool cd, a more mature bullet boys... nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: Gar Date: January 27, 2003 at 20:02
Actually, I liked this one better than their first 2. The Bulletboys were always a little bit more offbeat than the other 'hair bands'. They were clearly influenced by Van Halen, and it showed on thier first 2 especially. ZaZa saw them tone down the VH references and inject a little more originality making this their least boring album. 'Mine' actually seems to be inspired by Journey.

From: tomcat Date: March 10, 2004 at 17:00
this is my favorite bullet boys cd...laughing with the dead is a great song

From: wikkid 76 Date: April 20, 2004 at 16:46
I totally agree with tomcat - Laughing with the dead is one cool fucking song!!! Love this!!!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 12, 2004 at 23:40
Bulletboys go for another style change on this one, incorporating some of the alternative rock of the early 90's, such as When Pigs Fly, and end up with an album with a lot of variation. Its good to see I am not the only one that think that 'Mine' sounds like a Journey song. The major problem with the album is how short it is (I believe about 30 minutes). 8/10

From: Dave Date: June 14, 2004 at 20:46
This is without doubt one of the greatest pieces of crap you will ever hear in your life.I see it is going for about $2 on ebay and even then that is still a rip off.You could not even give this away its that bad.Best use for this is as a drink coaster or just simply bin it and learn from your mistake like i had to!

From: Metal Jay Date: July 30, 2004 at 23:41
Better than Freakshow.

From: Peopane Date: December 3, 2004 at 23:38
Seattle Shit! was all this was. Can you say - SELL OUT?

From: Geoff Date: December 4, 2004 at 23:06
They sold out on this release? WTF? I'm sorry kids, I don't hear it. Because they put a couple of ballads on their CD for once they sold out? I don't get it. '1-800 Goodbye' and 'Laughing with the dead' are two of the best songs these guys ever recorded and 'Mine' is a beautiful ballad. Yeah there's a lot of filler and it's not ther best album ever, but it kills 'Freakshow'. Some awful tracks, but mixed in with some of their best too...

From: Eugenio Chahin Date: December 16, 2004 at 15:08
Almost Horrible, but songs 7-8-9 are fair for $1

From: Dave Date: December 17, 2004 at 3:38
You would want to have the postage for overseas delivery included in the $1 otherwise you are still being ripped off !!!!!!!

From: Dean Date: December 19, 2004 at 14:19
Never a huge Bulletboys fan but i liked this one. I agree completely with Geoff's comments on this.

From: Chad Date: December 22, 2004 at 20:56
I too agree with Geoff's comments. Fess is a pretty decent tune too. Worth $3 anyday.

From: Big Mike Date: February 17, 2005 at 10:53
Most of this is just awful stuff. Track 9 is the only good one. I saw this cheap so thought I'd give it a go. Agree, $3 was a good deal for the merchant.

From: z4roxx Date: February 17, 2005 at 12:36
This band totally craps,IMO.I only like some songs of their debut,nothin'more....

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 10, 2007 at 19:53
I don't know why so much hatred towards this band.This album is not as bad as 99% of the readers said.Ok,it's a matter of personal likes and dislikes but i found "When Pigs Fly" a good starter and "Laughing With The Dead" is also a good song.About the restof the songs?,well personal opinions are the "key" of this site so and with all the respect for the readers of this page i think this album is quite good.8/10

From: rockhardrock Date: April 11, 2009 at 13:02
when i heard that one i was very disapointed. they changed a lot. the music, sound, hooks are not the same.they went to some kinda alternative rock waters, which is crap. the only song that is awsome is 1-800-Goodbye.
