As with the band's debut, Chickenfoot III is the sound of drinking buddies who dig tequila and Mexico. Though not lacking in verve, the tunes aren't quite as catchy, possibly because the group has been exposed as having but a single gear: arena-rock party jams. For example, on the song "Alright" Hagar bellows the title about 4,000 times in less than five minutes. He also tosses some "baby, it's alright" into the mix. This can be seen as something of a return to roots for the Red Rocker; back in 1973 he opened Montrose's debut album with a hearty "alright."
