| I've had a like/hate relationship with this band as I thought they jumped the shark back in the day when that cheesy 'Heaven' MTV video came out with all the boys decked out in Elvis white leather. They redeemed themselves with 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' and 'Dog Eat Dog' was a pretty good release. I even liked the first couple tracks off 'Ultraphobic' before their Belly to Belly slide into obscurity. I remember when the Cherry pie chick(Bobby Brown) was interviewed by Metal Sludge they asked when she found out she was pregnant with Lane's child, did she think she would give birth to a tad pole? Lane is/was a talented singer-songwriter but he's burned all his bridges with the band and it sounds like a reunion is unlikely. He's now the occasional back up lead singer for Great White last I heard. A band has to make a living and that's what Warrant is doing with this latest offering about the best you can hope for with a new frontman.

|'Rockaholic' is a definite improvement over the band's last release 'Born Again' with Jamie St. James on vox. That didn't sound at all like a Warrant release. With Robert Mason at the helm now, who is a much better singer I hear potential and some tinges of the band's glory days. 'Dusty’s Revenge' has a a dark, bluesy vibe and is the stand out track for me. Mason belts out the vocals more melodically this time around, with less of the raspy,gritty tone he sported with Lynch Mob. To my ears I don't hear that one knock out song but rather a handful of pretty good ones. I logged onto the band's official website and the claim to fame is that 'Cherry Pie' was voted #2 most played song in Gentleman's Clubs by Playboy Magazine. Who wants to die with that on their tombstone?

|I think this cd is ok. From another unknown band this could be a real good cd, but coming from Warrant it just ok. Some of the songs remind me of Buckcherry a little bit such as the ballad HOME, which i like.

|Actually, I think this disc is full of great tunes! There are a couple of fillers but overall it sounds great, Mason fits perfectly with the songs and it is a great mix of old school hard rock and modern day Warrant. This, along with the new King Kobra, are really good discs and I think most will enjoy.

|Saw these guys with this line up last summer. Was able to meet Jerry and Steven; they were both very approachable. Mason on vocals was great. I want to check out this new release.

|Seeing as I love the first two albums and consider them the best they ever did, that I thought Born Again was very good and Dog Eat Dog though while all right is ridiculously over rated, it should come as no surprise that I really like this. This is proper hard rock, the way it's supposed to sound. Mason's vocals are both powerful and melodic at the same time and the band play the music flawlessly. This is very polished hard rock from beginning to end and well worth the wait. I particularly like Innocence Gone and What Love Can Do but after I give this a few spins and allow this to "grow" on me so to speak, my favourites should change.

|Somebody should hire Dog the Bounty Hunter to track down Jani Lane, hire Dr. Phil to get him sobered up and clean, then pray to God above that a Lane-led Warrant reunion occurs and delivers the Warrant album we've all been waiting for since the "Dog Eat Dog" days. But while we wait for that to happen, this is a perfectly good hard rock CD, closer to that early Warrant sound (more "DRFSR" than "Cherry Pie," mind you) than their last comeback attempt, "Born Again," ever came. The songs "Home" and "Found Forever" dabble in the same big ballad territory as "Heaven" & "Blind Faith" did back at the peak of the band's popularity, and "Dusty's Revenge" is simply an awesome rock song that sounds like Cinderella crossed with Skid Row and Bon Jovi. So, no, this is not exactly the Warrant album everyone really wants to hear, but for the rockaholics out there simply looking for a good 80s-style hard rock album, this is well worth picking up.

|I have always been a big fan of Warrant and think Robert Mason is a perfect fit the band, he seems to have brought a new found energy and enthusiasm, but unfortuantely I don't think it translated to this CD. IMO, the better songs are "Innocence Gone", "Dusty's Revenge", "Home" and "Life's A Song". I would have cut it down to 10 songs, 14 is too long for an album that is mostly filler. "What Love Can Do', "Life's A Song", "Found Forever" and "Tears In The City" are good songs, but essentially the same song with different titles and most of the "rockers" have no big hooks or riffs. Personally I would have cut "Found Forever" and the last 3 songs to make for a tighter record. I can't stand Jamie St. Jaimes, but I thought "Born Again" was a lot more fun. Maybe my expectations were to high?, but overall "Rockaholic" is just an average release from Warrant.

|Not bad. My fave tune is "Innocence Gone." With Mason they obviously now have that Lynch Mob sound, but without the greatness we call George.

|Made above comment a few days ago; been listening to this a bit more. Gotta say I'm diggin' it. Mason is WAY better than St. James. Worth a spin!

|The premature demise of the flawed genius that was Jani Lane caused me to view this CD through rather different eyes. With the 'old' Warrant gone forever, it's time to move on. Rob Mason's been a bit of a screamer in the past, so I was fearful he might not be right for Warrant. But he's toned things down nicely, and this is a far superior album to that with Jaime St.James. For starters it's superbly produced, with crystal clear sound that truly does justice to the quality of musicianship and material on offer. Gone are Jani's mighty lyrics and the slightly edgy and eccentric edge his influence brought. But there's no denying that Mason is pretty damn good at what he does, and there's a decent and varied set of songs on offer here. What I really admired about Warrant was how they improved and evolved with each release. And I really loved their later, slightly dark and de-tuned era. But Jani's gone, so this is new chapter. Conventional, safe, but still a pleasure. 8/10.

|Really good comments from "emdienne." This is a really solid album by Warrant. It should make HH's Best CD's of 2011 list.

|Call me stuck in the past, but I still cannot classify this (or Born again) as a Warrant album. This has nothing to do with the sad death of Jani as I thought that even before he passed away. I have always been of the opinion that replacing a vocalist is a near impossible task. Some bands manage it like AC/DC, but most dont, at least not without changing their sound. I mean for me Sabbath with Dio was ok, but it certainly wasnt Sabbath, ditto for Van Hagar. The main problem other than the change of vocalists here is that Jani was the prime creative force in Warrant. His lyrics were something only a few can match. Hell, as cheesy as Cherry Pie is, the guy wrote one of the catchiest tunes ever in about 20 mins because the record label wanted a guaranteed "hit". The album itself isnt too bad, although nothing exciting. It just isnt Warrant. They should have changed names. Just as Motley should have with Corabi (and that was a killer album) as you risk losing sales.

|This is Warrant all grown up. Robert Mason brings professionalism to this band and his vocals are (and have been) good. CC, give this more spins; reason why HH put it on their best of list a few years ago...

|For whatever reason (maybe because the song "Cherry Pie" was excessively dumb) Warrant entered the 90's branded by pop culture as poster boys for the laughably cheeseball direction the late '80s had taken hard rock. Heeding the writing on the wall, they sought critical redemption by aping some moody, pseudo-grunge "seriousness." Fans called bullshit, so the band slunk away to resurface in the post-grunge '00s, ditching the down-tuned sonics and recruiting the reliably lascivious Robert Mason to revert to barrel-bottom tease-and-squeeze horseshit lyricism, the alterna-pretension swapped-out for hackneyed carnal entendre and bluesy cowboy swagger (which, if you've ever heard his Big Cock project, Mason excels at). The result was "Rockaholic." Whether it's all better than the dated grungey experimentation is a matter of taste. But "Innocence Gone" is close to rock candy perfection, and deserves to be blared at summertime pool parties as loudly and often as possible.

|No matter how many times I go back to this I just still cannot get into it. A couple of decentish tunes, but overall its pretty "meh".
