The opening song is “Let The Big Dog Eat“, and here you can realy hear and feel Castiglias guitar and powerful vocal skills. “Get Your Ass In The Van” brings a little rock in this album, and a lot of fun also you can get the same feeling in “What The Hell Was I Thinking” . “Don’t Let Them Fool Ya” and “Drowning At The Bottom“, are a great example of how should a good blues track sound, they are steady but rhythmic. If you are eager to hear a little bit funk in this blues “Easy Distance” will do that for you, a great track with great moments in it. The closing track of “Big dog” is the soft ballad “Somehow”.

Albert Castiglia and “Big Dog” will bring back the faith in blues for you. All of the tracks in this album are original and pure. “Big Dog” deserves a chance, you won’t regret it.
