So, is "Cocked and Loaded" worth the wait? Nah, if you already are a fan, you will dig this, no doubt. But if you're not, the chances are you'll sleep on it. This is rock'n'roll made by a bunch of guys (like guests Dave Gibbons of ZZ Top and Jello Biafra.whoa!) that want to have fun. And they have. Sometimes the weirdness gets out of hand, like in the strange "Ten Millon Ways to Die" or just plain out boring and bizarre like in "Jack in the Crack". But more often than not, Revolting Cocks do rock, and they rock hard with a big grin on their collective face - like in Iggy Pop-penned "Fire Engine" or in heavy "Pole Grinder".
I really like this, but then again I have liked almost everything Al Jourgensen has put out. But if you are a fan of Ministry or QOTSA, you'll dig this too. Just don't listen that closely to the lyrics. They almost sound like the stuff pretty drunk guys make sick jokes about in the tour bus. Hell, maybe they are! But it's still rock'n'roll, and as I said: I like it, despite myself.
