"To those who are concerned about false, dilettantish, or "hipster" metal, know that there are many things Goblin Cock are not: punishing, uncompromising, extreme, dour, and most of all, hip. But they are often a lot of fun. There's less metal posturing here than before, and the songs have taken on a slower and sludgier bent. Much like Crow's other projects, there are numerous little melodies, counter-rhythms, and unexpected earworms tucked into the songs. With Goblin Cock, gleeful boneheadedness meets melodic restlessness. "We Got a Bleeder" should gain steam from the relentless repetition of its one-note chug, but Crow can't help but have the song fold back on itself with a vocal harmony. Thundering bass lays out a melodic anchor to the slow churn of "Big Up Your Willies", which closes with a glassy, alien instrument tapping out new rhythms, all while Crow sings "raise our willies high up" on the key-changing chorus (if I've deciphered the lyric sheet correctly; it's written in runes)."
