Editorial Reviews

Warrant is one of the most popular and successful American hard rock bands to come out of the Los Angeles Music scene. The band's new studio album is produced by Keith Olsen (Scorpions, Whitesnake, 38 Special, Night Ranger).
Bass player Jerry Dixon commented: "I really think we captured a perfect mix of the past and present on the this record. Each song has iths own vibe that's going to take people on a kick-ass Warrent ride. There's enough 80's influence on songs like Tears in the City & Sex Ain't Love to keep the die-hard Warrent fans rocking while introducing them to new material"

I'll keep this simple. It's a good record. If you're a long time fan of Warrant or new to the band, it's a solid release. I'm not going to get into Jani vrs Robert (lead singer debate) I like both! Most know Jani because of Warrant but Robert (from a few bands but notably Big C*ck! Great Music!) Anywhooo, this release is pretty good, they mix it up well like Warrant has on prior records. I like Born Again, a bit better, but give it time and this might change as (1day after Rockaholic's release) it's too early to really make a fair assessment. I might update this, I might not. But for $10 ($9on-a-DgtlDwnld) it's currently good enough to listen too, until I learn all the words (oh yeah, there are no lyrics printed typical Warrant-WTF)! Well on-you-go get your order on become a Rockaholic!

Ok...update time! 100% Better than Ultraphobic! I hate to say it, but Jani is so 80's and Robert is so 80's plus 10! As in Crank it to 10! Like Junkyard(the band) said..."Put it on 10 and pull the knobs off!" This record is starting "Kiss Yer @$$ in every way" (go ahead buy it find out what song here-in contain those lyrics!) Straightup R to the OCK! To many people get hung up on the LEAD SINGER, as most people don't actually listen to the whole package. This record has the riffy guitars, the blues & the grunge guitars, as well as the melodic guitars (wa-wa stuff as I call it) Robert's voice is SOLID and carries! Take WARRANT (the "BAND" name) outta the equation, and this record deserves to be in every True Rock Fans arsenal!

I like the following enough to create playlists and add them to mix's:

Another of those bands who've changed lead singers 3 times but this cd is way better than Born Again and more even than the Jani Lane era cds.Those may have had slightly more killer rockers and great power ballads that stuck out but through and through this cd is more of a enjoyable complete listen.As great as those songs were it always seemed like they were aiming for specific purposes.(The rock anthem w the obligatory power ballads plus a few filler tunes) where this just feels more like an album with no agenda.Maybe no Cherry Pie on here but honestly how often does anyone listen to that album from beginning to end?The old Warrant was awesome as an 80s hair band represented by a best of package but this just feels like more of a cohesive band where the sky is the potential.Too bad its not 1989 but hopefully theyll keep makin music and see where it takes them cuz u never know when the musical spectrum will change again

Were it not for the Hell Yeah CD by Black 'N Blue that I purchased at the same time as Rockaholic, I would criticize this more but after listening to how a terrible a CD can actually be, I will say that at least I didn't frisbee this into the trash. Instead, I kep the case and dropped the CD in the trash.

After quite an absence on the hard rock/metal scene Warrant original members Erik Turner (guitar), Jerry Dixon (bass), Joey Allen (guitar) and Steven Sweet (drums) have returned with a new album Rockaholic and a new front man in Robert Mason. With a new front man there are always going to be the inevitable comparisons to original singer Jani Lane, especially given that his voice was an integral part of the Warrant sound. In my opinion Mason doesn't sound too bad at all actually, but doesn't seem to have the ability to get the higher register that Jani Lane was capable of. With that in mind Warrant have carefully written their new songs around Masons' ability, while still trying to maintain some degree of that classic Warrant sound for the fans.

The opening song Sex Ain't Love is a ripper, sounding very much like a sleazy Motley Crue type rocking tune, and is a great one to open the album with. It's followed by Innocence Gone which I like even more with a real rock `n' roll vibe and good chorus. Both these songs have more in common with stuff from D.R.F.S.R. and Cherry Pie than their later albums, and actually sound like they could have come straight from L.A.'s Sunset Strip in the 80's. They hark back to a style of music that just really hasn't been played like this for quite a good many years and I love it. Unfortunately the rest of the album just doesn't reach the same glorious heights.
I also quite like the album closer The Last Straw which is a faster paced hard rockin' song, track 4 Dusty's Revenge with its cowboy hard rock sound, and the more commercial sounding track 7 Life's A Song which in the chorus sounds more like the classic Warrant sound than anything else on the album.

I agree with the other reviews saying that there's too much filler and some songs sound the same but still give them credit for putting out new music for the fans!!!!! Not crap but not their best effort either!!!!!!

Great to see hair-metal/thrash bands making a comeback like Ratt, Exodus etc. I was never into the old Warrant but picked this up solely due to the nostalgia factor; just curious to see what they would sound like circa 2011. I was expecting a combination of 75% Filler & 25% good songs. Happy to say that this is not the case. Really great rock album with a good mix of good ol' rock n roll and ballady stuff. In this age of digital downloads and lack of good rock bands, this album brings back memories of the old while still maintaining the modern edge. Pick up the CD and enjoy!
