You know what you’re getting from the title alone. Suffice it to say that “Party Like Cowboyz” does not defy expectations in the least.
Yes, the production is loud enough to wake the dead. Yes, they shoehorn in a fiddle and banjo in the beginning, only for such to
be quickly forced out by layers of screaming bass and electric guitar. And yes, the lyrics are so forehead-slapping dumb as to make Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” sound like a musical revelation.
Yes, from the opening cry of “Come on, cowboys and cowgirls, it’s time to par-tay!” to the stupid “Z” slapped onto the end of the title, this is just bad, bad, bad. Big & Rich quite seriously sound like they’re not even trying anymore. It feels like there isn’t even any point in poking fun at this dreck because Big & Rich are making fun of themselves.
