This CD requires a few more listens than Eat 'Em And Smile and Skyscraper to fully appreciate. The musicianship is excellent...Dave will never have it any other way. Best Tracks(in order): 1. A Little Ain't Enough 2. Baby's On Fire 3. Lady Luck 4. Tell The Truth Rating: 7.0

From: Harvey Date: November 16, 2001 at 8:33
Some half-decent stuff on it but, sadly, it's the first Roth album that you don't really need to own!!

From: Dragonfly Date: December 16, 2001 at 19:12
A Little Isn't Enough!!!! That is just it. It's not enough to keep the Roth boat afloat. Going down bow first.

From: jens Date: July 20, 2002 at 1:12
this is one of the most cherished albums i have! i LOVE it. such groovy rock'n'roll and BLUES written all over it. he is having so much fun, you can't be mad for not getting Van Halen out of it. a great original, one of the best strays away from the standard repetoire ever!

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: July 20, 2002 at 1:25
You are right Jens, this album may not be one of the best albums of all time, but it maybe a little underated. There is some really good stuff on here. Lets not forget this one!

From: Desslar Date: July 20, 2002 at 14:26
This does take some warming uo to, but it has its share of fun rockers in the classic DLR vein. The first three tracks are particularly strong. Track 11 sounds like a knock-off of Hot for Teacher. All in all, this album is a 100 times better than that '98 DLR Band mess.

From: ThunderDan Date: August 29, 2002 at 16:10
Great CD! Unlike some of the reviews here, I loved this album instantly. I was a HS junior when it came out, and I couldn't take it out of my walkman. My fave of 1991.

From: Baris Date: September 10, 2002 at 7:13
One more great album from Dave. The sound is a little bit different from "Eat'Em And Smile" or "Skyscraper". But again it's full of party rock'n'roll. Esp. "Hammerhead Shark" is a great fun (also "Sensible Shoes"). Dave's giggly voice again makes this album a good summer beach party stuff...

From: roth-fan4ever Date: December 14, 2002 at 21:59
dave does it again, every album a little different and every song unique, my fav song 4 this album -drop in the bucket, keep the great music pumpin dave

From: AerofloTT Date: January 13, 2003 at 17:32
This album contains the BEST guitar solo ever in "Showtime". Jason Becker at his best (God bless him). Simply an awesome, awesome song.

From: John Date: August 4, 2003 at 13:05
When this rocks, it really rocks. Unfairly slagged, this has some awesome guitar on it. Good job Dave.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 28, 2004 at 16:28
The first track is excellent, sounding like David Lee Roth if he sang for Foreigner or Bon Jovi. While the rest of the album is harder rocking, it also slips in a little bit of the quality. Still, it is worth the cheap price that it can be had for. 7/10

From: Dean Date: June 28, 2004 at 19:10
This one is killer if just for Jason Becker's intense guitar skills. If only he wouldn't have been stopped after this, who knows what he could've accomplished?

From: Metal T Date: June 28, 2004 at 20:04
Yeah Dean !---I thought the 2 "Cacophony" records he did with Freidman' were pretty intense as well .A kick-ass musician .

From: Propane Date: December 3, 2004 at 11:07
Only an average release, didn't buy it but a hard core fan might.

From: CurtisLoew Date: March 6, 2005 at 0:34
One great song ("A Lil' Ain't Enough"), one good song ("Sensible Shoes") and a whole lotta wasted space.

From: run2u Date: March 14, 2005 at 13:19
Otro buen álbum que,por diversos motivos,no funciona igual de bien que los anteriores.Es menos comercial,requiere más escuchas,y aunque los músicos son excelentes(Jason Becker en la solista),le falta ese "algo"que tienen los anteriores.En cualquier caso,hard rock americano con momentos explosivos y originales(los primeros temas),y con sabor bluesero en otros como Sensible Shoes.Y tenemos otro Shyboy en "Its showtime!".Merece la pena darle una oída,y además está barato.6'5/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: Sven Pelz Date: May 29, 2005 at 4:07
A perfect album. For me it`s his best Reocord. The sound and the songs are so amazing. This is the perfect album for the summertime. I love this stadiumrock.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 10, 2007 at 21:07
With a different line-up (conserving only the 2 Bissonette brothers and including the amazing Jason Becker on guitar)Diamond Dave recorded this album that does not have the power of "Eat..."and "Skyscraper" but is not a bad album either even though the only song that i really like was and is "Baby's On Fire".A little weak on its production maybe can be considered the result of the poor acceptance of this album.Anyway life's a bitch but we love it!.7/10

From: jedilato Date: June 1, 2008 at 14:52
It's SHOWTIME! The party with Dave continues on this good album. The only problem with this album is that there are only a few great songs. A Lil' Ain't Enough, It's Showtime (Hot For Teacher part II :P), Sensible Shoes, Shoot It and for me that's about it. The whole album is nice to listen, just won't get stuck in your head. But we can remember this release as the last good album. I think Dave was crushed the most with the fact that happier melodies are excluded from the media. He cannot find himself since then...

From: Doug Date: January 5, 2011 at 14:45
I picked this up for $1 the other day. When he's "rock Dave" and less "vegas Dave" is when he is best, IMO. Title track flat out rocks, the rest of the songs not so much. The guitar playing though is tremendous.

From: Wardy Date: January 2, 2013 at 3:47
Dave did well getting a line-up almost as strong as the successful Vai/Sheenan releases, and although this one charges outta the starting gates with the magnificent title track, a little really wasn't enough to capture the same quality of those earlier records. And the line-up really were capable it's simply the material that lets this album down too often, Dave choosing too often to venture back to those lounge-act shenanigans when things shoulda continued to rock. While no-one expected anything less than a good time considering this was released as the onslaught of grunge hit, perhaps too much partying ain't such a good thing!? Although I must add it's worthwhile checking out the absolute quality that is TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH! Borderline masterpiece, the tracks the perfect late night cruiser and quite magnificent, kudos deserved for that one alone Rating 7

From: hair metal again Date: April 30, 2013 at 10:38
excellent release by Dave back in a year that was fantastic for hard rock genre!amazing production by Bob Rock,astonishing guitars by Jason Becker and many great songs included always in the unique DAVID LEE ROTH s way!in my book this one is a gem and overall his best release along with Skyscraper and i believe that it is essential!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 30, 2013 at 11:50
The two singles from this album pretty well sum up its inconsistency. "A Li'l Ain't Enough" is the kick-ass, rock 'n' roll Dave that we know and love, just a good, hard-rockin' song. Then came 'Sensible Shoes,," another one of Dave's dumb, weirdo detours into ... well, I don't know what he's trying to do there. The rest of the album is just as erratic, just all over the place. Some people love that about Dave, others, me included, wish he'd quit farting around and just rock.

From: dudemetal Date: May 14, 2013 at 21:44
I've recently rediscovered this cd due to watching the new Jason Becker documentary and I've gotta admit that this has become my favorite Roth solo cd. What the first reviewer said is correct. This cd doesn't immediately hit over the head like Eat'em n Smile did but is still filled with killer songs and first rate shredding by Jason....Personal favorites are : A Lil Ain't Enough, It's Showtime, Drop In The Bucket and Baby's On Fire....GREAT stuff that should be revisited by all.

From: Reverend Mayhem Date: September 30, 2014 at 19:55
By the time this album came out DLR's slap-happy LA party shtick was considered old hat, so it got the stink-eye from critics and the emerging Grunge babies, and consequently sunk like a stone. Too bad, because aside from "Eat 'em and Smile," this for me is the quintessential DLR disc. The short-lived Roth/Becker team-up proves quite sonically effective: no goofball showtunes or forays into Country -- when the songs aren't straight-up rockin' ("Hammerhead Shark," "40 Below"), they're bumpin' like nobody's business ("Baby's On Fire," "Last Call"), with Rothian lyrical genius like, "Her hot pants started early and her t-shirt ended late" embodying all the flippant fun of old school Van Halen that drove the Alterna-whiners ape-shit bonkers. In short, it's DLR grinning in your face from start to finish. Occupies a top slot on my desert island list. 95 / 100

From: Reverend Mayhem Date: October 6, 2014 at 9:31
(Correction: For the record, the lyrics I quoted are actually, "Her t-shirt ended early and her hot pants started late," which, you know, makes more sense.)
