CD Reviews

If you don't groove to this, you just ain't punk baby!
John Roberts | Baton Rouge, LA | 03/14/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Big Boys carved out a notch for themselves with their unique style of fun and danceable punk rock. At the same time the music is honest, heartfelt, brutal, uncompromising, and ( I can't stress this enough) genuinely danceable. After reading a lot about praise about the BB from fans, and fellow musicians (Ian from minor threat, Steve from Big Black, Paul from the Butthole Surfers, etc. etc.)I bought both this and Fat Elvis. Fun stuff, with a great attitude. If you're looking for a typical rehash of hardcore you've heard a thousand times before, look somewhere else. If you want something all its own, you have arrived. Just get it.

This stuff is essential and will make you wish you could've been there to see them live. RIP Randy"
The worlds' most underated band | Bethlehem, PA. | 08/25/1999

"An amazing collection of tunes spanning the Boys short but profolic career.They weren't afraid to tackle any genre which put them miles ahead of their hardcore peers.They carelessly stagger from one song to the next in what seems like a drunken stupor.One of the few bands in hardcore who actually sound like they're having fun!A must for any fan of this kind of music."
Probably the greatest hardcore band of all time. | 03/24/1999

"The Big Boys are a must for any collector. This is a compilation of their first three releases and is one of my favorite CDs in my collection of about 500. The origional recordings of these three releases are extremely rare and a definite buy if you ever see one in a record store."
