|What a great band! Great songs, Great Production, Great Name.....If you are a fan of '80's rock pick this up. It's King Kobra & Lynch Mob mixed together. King of Swing is a fantastic rocker that gets your foot a tappin right away. Hard to Swallow is a song that kinda reminds me of Without You by the Crue (in concept). I Strongly recomend this album.

|Hmm, it's not bad per se, but it definitely ain't great IMHO. It sounds unfinished and under-produced. Mason sounds good, but the mix is very rough and demo-like. The songs aren't really well written either, especially from a lyrical perspective. I'd give it a big 'ol 'average' score... if you really need your sleaze, go with Buckcherry's 15 instead.

|Keep in mind this is a Indy Release, that said I completely disagree with the above comment that the album sounds under produced, unfinished and like a demo. While it does not sound as thought there is a big time producer, the production is fine. The lyrics are one of the things I like best about the album. This album is more about attitude than lyrical content. The lyrics are just about sex Drugs & Rock. This is a great cd. I have yet to play it for anyone that is a fan of this style

|that hasn't embraced it with open arms. As for the buck cherry comment, I could name 100 or more releases that are better for what ever reason, thats not the point, the point is that this album has been in my rotation since I got it a month ago. I buy around 25-30 cds a month so thats saying something. 2 words 'Buy It'

|I definately agree with Blue Charvel about the sound. It does sound like a demo, which is a shame. A little more polish and this would have been great. I already thoroughly enjoy it as it is, but it has even more potential. 'Take it off' is my fave, killer hard rocker, 'Carrie's in love' is a great ballad, 'You suck the love out of me' is awesome and the lyrical direction of 'Hard to swallow' amazes me & cracks me up in a controversial way. Poor sound, but great sleazy hard rock. Great vocals.

|hey, blue charvel have you been smoking crack, the production is spot on and the songs are sleaze at there finest! the only thing average is the creed records you have been listening too!

|well reading the comments above me I had to listen to this for myself and it does have a few good songs like dynamite and bad motherfucker or take it off. It does have its different sounds but for whats out there today as they call rock n roll this is not the best and not the worst cd I gave it a 6.5.

|Great vocals. Great music. Cheesy lyrics. Not a bad combination. Recommended because it has a great party rock vibe and just makes you want to listen to it more and more. Get this one. You will not be disappointed.

|******************************A veces no es necesario que se junte Dios y la Virgen Maria, para que la fiesta sea la mejor del siglo, es decir, hoy en día muchos “monstruos” de distintas agrupaciones se juntan para hacer un super grupo, en este caso si bien podría Big Cock pasar por ese mote, no lo veo de esa forma. Todo esto viene a que BC esta formado por un ex King Kobra, Lizzy Borden David Michael-Phillips que aparece en este disco supuestamente con su nombre real

|Dave Henzerling, y unos de los mejores vocalistas de la escena hard rock actual Robert Manson quien pertenece a Lynch Mob y fue la voz de James Byrd Group, también de Cry of Love, Magum y Silent Witness. Para este proyecto reclutaron a un casi desconocido batero John Covington, que solo encontré como ‘prontuario’ una participación en un disco tributo a Dio y el bajista John Colby que no se si es el mismo que hizo algunos soundtracks.

|Vamos a hablar del “Año del martillo” (convengamos que cock tiene otros significados como verga –miembro masculino-), el mismo es un cd que te va a volar la tapa de los sesos! Tiene todos los condimentos que un excelente disco de hard rock con claras tendencias ochentas requiere. Bases, riffs, la fabulosa voz de Robert, demuestran que Big Cock debería tener larga vida, eso deseo. Dave sabe componer muy buenas canciones, suenan a lo mas crudo de Mr Big, lo mas salvaje de Beau Nasty y

|el mas sabroso sabor a Tesla. No hay canción desperdiciada en “Year of the cock”, arrancan duro, potente desde “Bad mothefucker”, “I wan it all” es el típico rock and roll kissero, “King of cool” tiene toda la alta tensión que los AC/DC pudieran ejecutar en sus descargas, “Hard to swallow” baja los decibeles, y absorbe un poco toda esa esencia mas setentas, pero no dejan respiro al festejo ya que “Old No. 7” a mi parecer es el mejor tema del album.

|En fin, uno de los mejores cds que recibí últimamente, y eso que recibo material de muy alta calidad. Para mas info: www.bigcockrocks.com ****************************************** Lucas H Gordon

|This debut is just not very consistent. When they get it right, it's great. There are some great songs here, and also some real clunkers. The first four are classics, as is "You Suck The Love Out Of Me." On the flip side, "Old #7" is a trite, uninspired drinking song, and "Dynamite" is ridiculous, Robert Mason sounding completely unconvincing threatening to "pop a cap in yo' ass" and such. The production? I've heard a lot worse. The packaging? Well, put it this way: I gladly paid $9 to download from Amazon, rather than pay $13 plus shipping to have an actual copy from CD Baby.

|This is a billion times better than Buckcherry, this is kickass sleaze with ridiculous lyrics, meant to be rocked out to and not taken seriously. Take It Off is one of the purely sleaziest songs I've heard since the 80's. King of Cool and Cinnamon rock too. And this sounds rough, because it is rough! I'm so tired of hearing people praise slick production that does nothing but take all of the balls out of music like this

|LOVE IT !!! Great songs & "subtle as a brick lyrics" (surely setting the bar for Steel Panther to take to an even filthier level) brilliantly sung by Robert Mason. Good to see some bands not being afraid of sex & humour when writing, as I thought it was a dying art.However it would all mean nothing if the songs were no good but gladly Dave Henzerling & Robert Mason don't often put a foot wrong & I can't find a duff track on the album.

|lets go : this is a masterpiece and one of the best commercial hard rock releases of this millenium!i m tired of listening that whatever is guitar driven is sleaze and whatever has keyboards is aor!all that stuff is called HARD ROCK ....BIG COCK s debut is dynamite with great riffs & choruses,lots of attitude ,catchy songs and with always a commercial edge!essential release that could have easily been back in the day!
