CD Reviews

You Should Stick With Your Own Kind
Horseshoe Head | Chicago, IL | 10/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Sorry in Pig Minor" is probably the best album in Cows' catalog. It is a far departure from their earlier works like "Sexy Pee Story" and "Cunning Stunts" in the sense that the song writing is a lot more personal and shows that even the hardest Bovine has a soft side. Themes of depression, anger, and self destruction are rampant, but without ever getting whiney, as opposed to, say, on a Stabbing Westward album. The opening song, "Cabin Man", has our hero contemplating suicide on the top of a bridge and, I suppose, the rest of the album can be looked at as the events that took place in his life that ultimately led him to that moment. This is also a very different album for Cows because it is the first time they've incorporated keyboards and sampling into their music and they do so very frighteningly. If the idea of bashing your head against a bath tub seems like a good one, then this is the album for you. With an almost sick sense of humor, the lyrics walk you through several different stages of misery and leave you screaming, "Uncle!" You just might be able to relate. Unfortunately, this was the last Cows album, but if you like this one, or any of their other works for that matter, go ahead and check out the band Heroine Sheiks which is also led by frontman Shannon Selberg. Their album "Rape on the Installment Plan" could be considered "Sorry in Pig Minor: the Squeal"."

"Do you like NOISE ROCK but think Fugazi sucks?
Do you like VARIETY?
Do you like WEIRD MUSIC THAT NEVER GOES ANYWHERE BUT BUSTS YOUR ASS JUST THE SAME? Then try these guys. This album doesn't go into some country schlock like "Cunning Stunts," but neither is it as unlistenable as their real early work ("Daddy Has A Tail" etc.). It's probably the best album Cows have ever done (and yes, that INCLUDES "Cunning Stunts"). So if you're done with that Cannibal Corpse album, come over to MY headphones and peruse "Sorry In Pig Minor." I'll wean you off that third-rate death metal rock schlock yet."
Greatness in the form of a cd

"The Cows have delivered a masterpiece. Long live the Cows."
