Refried Bauhaus

Allegory

Caliente is one of the best covers of any songs I've ever heard. The rest of the album is good but not really in the old groove-oriented vein that RevCo used to make. It sounds like Ministry with more playful subject matter.

Good But Not Great

TheAccuser

This one is more punk/metal than industrial; more like what you expect from Lard, which is no bad thing by itself, but I still prefer 'Beers...' and 'Linger...'. Then as now, there's some filler--'Jack In The Crack' is weak and obnoxious in a not-good way. Jello Biafra's rant on 'Viagra Culture' is indeed funny but not the sort of thing one wants to hear over and over. Also this version (meaning the downloads here vs. the CD) is missing the 'RevColution Medley' intro and the remaining songs are in a different order. I usually see cover-songs as filler, although the disgusting ad-libbed lyrics on the bastardized Bauhaus song 'Dark Entries' are hilariously-disturbing. Favorite songs:Fire Engine, Dead-End Streets and Devil Cock. If half-stars were allowed I'd give it 3 & 1/2.

DAMN GOOD FUN!!

Yattering

This is big dumb fun from Al and co. Not really a bad moment on this one and i particularly enjoy the crunchy guitars. Jello's rant on Viagra Culture is a piss funny highlight!!! Love it!!

A welcome return to form

Moschops

This is easily the best material from Revco since 'Beers,Steers....' featuring contributions from Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Gibby Haynes (Butt Hole Surfers), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Stevie Banch (Spyder Baby), Phildo Owen (Skatenigs) plus of course Al & Paul. Stand out tracks are Viagra culture and Fire engine

They Say All Music Guide

After a 12-year hiatus, Al Jourgensen revived his toy band Revolting Cocks with a higher-profile cast than usual. Counterculture superstars Gibby Haynes and Jello Biafra have joined the party, which was bound to happen, but nobody could have foreseen Davíd Garza, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander as Cocks back when Revco was as much a way for the members of Front 242 to let off steam as it was for the folks in Ministry. The star-studded Cocked and Loaded was originally titled Purple Head and planned for 2004 with the track “Prune Tang” being handed over to the Internet for some buzz-generating. It didn’t, which is a shame because the track hints at the great album that could have been: a raunchy Texas ass-kicker that both loves and mocks the synth-era ZZ Top while tipping the hat to the grittiest goth and industrial. Also capturing this excitement is “Caliente,” an over-the-top cover of the legendary Bauhaus’ “Dark Entries” with former Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes adding enough of his cosmic ramblings to earn a new title for the tune. Nielsen positively shreds on the opening “Fire Engine,” a cover of a lost Iggy Pop song on which Jourgensen gets co-writing credit (odd since the track dates back to demos Ig did with Ric Ocasek in 1983, the year Ministry was making their debut and not sounding very “Fire Engine” at all). Biafra’s “Dead End Streets” ends the list of highlights before this horribly front-loaded album takes a turn for the worse. The second half of Cocked and Loaded tries too hard with humorous samples and sleazy joke songs clumsily trying to force a connection between this Revco and the one on Big Sexy Land, or at least Linger Ficken’ Good… It’s loud, shocking, and sorta fun for a spin, but one has to wonder if Jourgensen took the nonresponse to “Prune Tang” to heart and mistakenly went back to the drawing board. While it’s the closest this throwaway band has come to a throwaway album, Cocked and Loaded works if you party harder and pass out earlier. – David Jeffries
