Rockaholic by Warrant
Released: May 2011
Label: Frontiers Records
Replacing Jani Lane with ex-Lynch Mobber Robert Mason is kind of like booting Roth for Hagar: Secretly high-I.Q. humor, vocal subtlety and melodic invention make way for a more bull-in-china-shop approach. Rockaholic opens leering and riffy, rides some Bon Jovi cowboy-glam into the sunset, then alternates fast Ratt-haired rockers with Buckcherry-tawdry mid-tempo semi-ballads. Three songs wrestle with drug dependence; two -- the Billy Squier-ripping "Snake" and speedy, steely, legitimately metal closer "The Last Straw" -- lash out at a disreputable soul who may or may not be a former bandmate.
