From: Paulo-Fernandes Date: August 8, 2001 at 16:12
GREAT CD - Ex-White sister members going southern, with a lot of style - Highlights - Been your fool, Let me be one (Great ballads, awesome vocals), Tell me why, and well... the rest of the album - 9.5!

From: dt Date: August 13, 2001 at 21:59
a great band that never got the credit they deserved. this cd is better than their second entitled, "skin" but both are worth owning. the song, "blackened" on the skin cd is the best song about repeatedly going back to a negative relationship ever recorded. great vocals!

From: james Date: September 24, 2001 at 18:07
good album. much better than the second. think of a roots-southern rock band going pop-metal. or root-sleeze metal

From: Margarita Date: January 12, 2002 at 21:05
If Dennis Dries could f*** as well as he sings, I'd get down on my knees and force him at mouthpoint to marry me! Gloriously intoxicating vocals, tight transitions, great music to make your innards tremble!!!

From: Steve T Date: February 28, 2002 at 8:45
I hated this album after being a huge White Sister fan. Still hate it....very poor. Dennis is the only good thing...the guy can sing.

From: David Date: March 14, 2002 at 8:43
I don't with steve t, i think this is an absolute classic! Just jammed packed with killer songs! I haven't heard any White Sister stuff but if this is anything to go by they will be a great band. I'm not scared about saying this is the closest thing you'll get to the exellent GIANT!, that's right I said GIANT. This Dennis Churchil Dries can hit a serious note, what a shit hot singer, does anyone know anything about him, he sounds like a clone of Dann Huff of GIANT.

From: David Date: March 14, 2002 at 8:52
I'm back, I just broke the words limit, anyway this cd blew me away, aparently they have another album but I can't if anything about it, anyway i've have my say. EVERY SONG IS A KILLER!

From: jason Date: May 16, 2002 at 22:21
I actually have this CD. On top of that, I even play it from time to time. I saw the cover and just had to buy it. Dennis has a VERY strong voice and I could see this band going over really well in a hick bar. I'm not to big on the up beat songs, but their mellow stuff is not to bad. When you are home alone some night and you are stinkin' drunk, throw this CD on and you will more than likely sing along to it (not that I would know or anything....)

From: Desslar Date: May 18, 2002 at 15:26
The two big ballads are good, but the most of the other material sounds like second rate Skynyrd. Which isn't a totally bad thing.

From: elcolebrom Date: June 1, 2002 at 15:36
Não é o White sister com gary mas também está bom-10!

From: Kim Date: August 18, 2002 at 16:05
This is a S U P E R CD. I only have a copy, but im getting the original on Ebay for sure.

From: Pygmon Date: October 25, 2002 at 6:19
I saw the "Been Your Fool" video on a Tuesday. I bought the CD on Wednesday, and hair bands died on Friday. Too bad. An EXCELLENT album both vocally and instrumentally. Opposed to most bands of this genre are concerned....these guys really had talent.

From: Roxas Date: December 4, 2002 at 19:04
This album for me is best foir the ballads - real great soulful tunes - The rest is good hard southern rock, sometimes they even sound funky like Extreme. The ballad "Let me be the one" is one of the best of all time - truelly wonderful.

From: Jez Date: March 26, 2003 at 15:31
Great bluesy rock album from the ex White Sister members - don't go expecting the album to sound like them or you will be dissapointed, although there are 3 tracks here that were going to be on the 3rd WS cd namely 'Everybody Wants' 'Tell Me Why' and 'One Way Love' which are all excellent and much more in the Melodic rock vein of previous WS albums. . Dennis Churchill is an amazing vocalist and the other band members back him up admireably throughout. Reccomended

From: matt Date: March 28, 2003 at 4:50
both albums are classic but the first can give any band of the early 90s who had this style a run for their money. as good as the debuts by the black crowes, london quireboys or blackeyed susan. should have gotten more credit. contains the minor hit been your fool plus even smaller hits let me be the one and everybody wants what shes got. great southern feeling rock. not too many bands out there like this anymore if any since the black crowes are on break. stop reading and buy it. get the 2nd to

From: King James Date: May 5, 2003 at 16:19
Just an OK release in the great metal world. Some of the songs are a bit too country for my metallic taste. I've never been a big fan of country-metal. The song "Shotgun Johnny" is a sweet metal track. A CD worth owning for metal collectors, like myself.

From: sharkey Date: July 22, 2003 at 22:39

From: Topboy Date: October 7, 2003 at 8:43
This album is AWESOME!!! A must for all metal/rock/blues music fans. Get it in your collection now!!! Have to agree with David above: - rates highly alongside the equally great Giant (thought it was just me!) Enjoy. PS: - Far better than the eagarly awaited second album Skin.

From: matt Date: November 3, 2003 at 13:52
anyone know what happened to the people in this band especially the singer?

From: Rich Date: January 29, 2004 at 8:34
I am the drummer for W.S and T.R!!!!!!!! We play what we feel and are not into hick music!!LOL!! THANK YOU so much for your interest in our music.I am really dissapointed that we did not do better in the big rock world.We tried are asses off to make good music and be real to ourselves and our fans.We really appreciate all the support!! P.S. We are currently working together again in 2004!!! So you never know what will happen! Rich Wright

From: The Fizzy One Date: February 1, 2004 at 17:42
I dunno. I had been wanting to hear something from these guys because they sound right up my alley. I heard "Been Your Fool" the other day on the fabulous XM radio channel for this sort of thing ... and it wasn't all that. THe singer seemed to think he was hot stuff, but wasn't. That yodeling part in the middle, OUCH! Painful.

From: Christine Date: February 1, 2004 at 21:35
Fizz, Da Boneyard rules!! But give TR another chance, maybe listen to a few other tracks...

From: MJ (Marla) Date: March 11, 2004 at 2:55
Pulled this one out again after some time....and man, I still love it as much as I did back then.... "Been Your Fool" and "Let Me Be The One" are SO emotion filled...LOVE them both!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: March 11, 2004 at 5:06
CRAP from beginning to end. White Sister was head and shoulders above this third rate rock 'n roll ! BAD (it seems if MJ likes something, you may be sure it's bad as hell !).

From: MJ (Marla) Date: March 11, 2004 at 9:55
IN YOUR opinion, Freak!!! Don't start with me little boy...... BACK on topic, I like the piano in this. And the vocals (IN MY OPINION) are simply awesome!!

From: Rockhead Date: March 11, 2004 at 13:37
GO MJ GO!! This is a Bad album. had i been released by anyone other than White Sister it would have been better recieved. A totally different style and to be honest too big a departure from the pomp for most fans liking. The follow SKIn is also quite good. Dennis Churchill can sing the phone book and make it work.

From: Rockhead Date: March 11, 2004 at 13:39

From: Aero Force Mike Date: March 11, 2004 at 14:35
Hey the front cover says *TATTOO RODEO*, not WHITE SISTER. If it was gonna sound like White Sister, it'd have WHITE SISTER printed on the cover! Ya know what, I've never even heard White Sister, and I don't care, cos I love this record. Anyway this album rules, my pick is definately Everybody Wants What She's Got; great anthem! The second album was much more like Black Crowes whilst this is more like Sister Whiskey. Great for fans of Little Caesar, Blackeyed Susan, Sister Whiskey etc.

From: Rockhead Date: March 11, 2004 at 14:48
Aero Force I know it says Tattoo Rodeo and I personally dont care either way. There are alot of people however that preferred White Sister and the change is too difficult to handle. It is like Angel reforming and releasing a death metal album. Regardless of good it is peoples preconceptions get in the way. You should listen to White Sister by the way, they really were great!!

From: James Date: March 11, 2004 at 17:36
these guys should have had the success the Black Crowes enjoyed. Like has been said, very good, roots driven, southern flavored rock

From: Louis Date: April 12, 2004 at 19:35
I just picked this one up (in the used section) two days ago.I saw it at the cd store a few months ago now I wish I bought it then!I haven't put it down.If you like the band "Tangier", you will enjoy Tattoo Rodeo.This album is absolutely great.There is not a dull moment on it.I don't care if grunge music became popular around this time, this cd should have been able to run over and crush the grunge scene.Oh well.Does anyone have any pictures of this band or know of a site were some can be found?

Great cd, I happen to like "skin" better though.

From: Geoff Date: August 21, 2004 at 23:04
Although not too big a fan of southern flavoured hard rock, I must admit I really like this CD. The three ballads are all excellent, and 'One way love' is a great melodic rocker. No, it ain't White Sister's debut, but I prefer it to the second White Sister album. Good solid hard rock.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 24, 2004 at 10:24

From: Blue Tequila Date: March 30, 2005 at 20:01
This is a great album, with a sound similar to Southgang. Killer songs and the lead singer is awesome. A highly recommended cd that can be found cheap, which makes it even better.

I just listened to this all the way through for the first time (bought it for $3 the other day). I like it, it's nothing new or different, just good rockin' music with some southern and blues influences. Almost reminds me of a less heavy Sweet FA or something. Definitely worth it at the price as BT mentions.

I hear tatoo rodeo might be in the process of making a comeback Great!!!

From: Nix Date: July 21, 2007 at 12:04
Never heard these guys, but I recently bought a cheap DVD called 'Back For Revenge' starring C. Thomas Howell, and I believe the movie is called 'Kid' in U.S. It had a true Hard Rock soundtrack, including a great song called 'Restless Heart' by Tattoo Rodeo playing during the end credits. Well, I guess that's unreleased. By the way, it also had some other great sounding songs, and I was shocked when I heard Skull's 'I Like My Music Loud' in it. It's a shame there was no soundtrack released...

From: rallen399 Date: November 27, 2007 at 1:39
This cd is great from start to finish,no filler and what a singer these guys should be huge.Skin is a great follow up,it picks up where this one leaves off.If bluesy southern rock is your thing don't miss these guys cd's.

From: rockhardrock Date: April 21, 2009 at 6:47
i like this one, because it's a bit different than most of the records from this time. melodic hard rock with elements of southern rock and blues. my favs: Everybody Wants What She's Got, Shotgun Johnny, One Way Love and Down.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 27, 2009 at 2:34
I just got this one, so I'm not going to give it a full review yet, but on the first listen, most of the standout tracks are in the first half, and the ballads are teh better songs. The rockers seem a little too slick, somehow. As for the singer, he spends the disc aping Jon Bon Jovi and Steven Tyler, and to say that he overemotes, would be polite. Goddamn, dude, forget about all the put-on blues mannerisms and just sing!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 25, 2009 at 1:07
Okay, finally got around to listening to this all the way through. They remind me of a cross between Bon Jovi and Copperhead, equal parts hair metal and southern rock. There are some big-chorus, Bon Jovi moments like "One Way Love" and' Everybody Wants What She's Got," and a lot of slower-paced, more laid-back songs like on the Copperhead disc. It's not bad stuff at all, but to be honest, the only song that actually made me feel it was worth the trouble to get the disc was "Let Me Be The One," which is excellent.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 21, 2010 at 21:47
I found this album for a very low price(a dollar 2 be precised!)and it blew my mind immediately..like some comments stated above this band was put together after the breaking up of that marvellous band called White Sister by members of it...the best tracks are "Strung Out" is a very cool track,","Been Your Fool" is a killer ballad..."Sweet Little Vicky","Ain't No Reason Why","Blonde Ambition","One Way Love" & "Hard Like A Rock" are awesome tracks,the best in here..."Love Shuffle" is also a highlight..if u are into bands such as The Quireboys,Thunder,Giant and Whitesnake then Tattoo Rodeo will suits you fine.90/100

From: My AOR Life Date: April 19, 2013 at 9:55
Great Album,and the voice of Dennis Churchil Dries is awesome,but the greatest song ever perform is "Restless Heart"end credits from the movie "KID" 1990 with C. Thomas Howell.Song that never released in album or maxi single,not even the soundtrack of the movie. And i have ripping from LaserDisc movie in very good quality.Highlights from the album "One Way Love","Tell Me Why".

From: hair metal again Date: August 13, 2014 at 8:49
excellent hair metal release by TATTOO RODEO ,not so much blues or southern as stated above!this band was set to get heard and appreciated by those fans and not those who listen to blues or southern!ex WHITE SISTER members of course means that the quality of music is very high and the songs sound hard rockin and edgy!"tell me why","been your fool","one way love " are great songs inded!essential like every release of that movement back in the day

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 13, 2014 at 10:06
Oh yeah, this was definitely aimed at the hair-metal crowd. But you can't ignore that it's hair-metal dressed up as southern-rock. There's piano, organ, slide guitar, and Dennis Churchill Dries singing from an affected southern persona, making it immediately different from the straight-up lipstick-and-spandex metal of 1991. You would never mistake this for Pretty Boy Floyd or BulletBoys. Compared with other hair-metal bands of the day, there's a smoothness and laid-back feel about Tattoo Rodeo, that makes people think more of southern rock.

From: Reverend Mayhem Date: September 3, 2015 at 23:32
This is basically a band doing an entire album's worth of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Warrant. Sure, they vary the grooves and throw in some requisite "broken-hearted" ballads, but the songs essentially all boil down to a cornpone variation on late-80's arena rock: slide guitar intros galore, honky-tonk piano, pretentious Southern vocal accent, and lyrics about drankin' and smokin' and sleezy young juke-joint missies shakin' what their mamas gave 'em -- Faux-Southern good ol' boy roadhouse heaven. Wouldn't be too bad if it all didn't come off as so affected and hokey; considering Dennis Dries' previous work with White Sister it's not hard to question the insincerity of it all -- just capitalizing on the fleeting "Rockers-as-Cowboys" trend that Bon Jovi, et al. exploited so well at the time. Too bad, I like Dennis' voice a lot (that is, without the hillbilly drawl.) A couple acceptable tunes, otherwise derivative, silly and dated. 65 / 100.

From: Doug Date: January 18, 2016 at 19:30
Just picked this up. Good, not great IMO. An album to listen to when in the mood for plain 'ol rock and roll.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 19, 2016 at 22:16
Man, every time I revisit this disc, the more phony and contrived it sounds, and the more I agree with Reverend Mayhem's comment above. These pomp-rock clowns were just guessing. You put this on with the Four Horsemen's Nobody Said It Was Easy--faux southern-rawk songs written by an Englishman and sung by a New Yorker--and the Horsemen come out on top every single time, by a country mile. Hair-metal for Wal-Mart cowboys.
