In between being arrested, boozing, brawling and still acting as if it was 1985, Vince Neil has found the time to record a covers album with two new tracks. This must have been a real stretch for Neil, who like Motley Crue isn't exactly prolific these days, releasing anything new or meaningful. Therefore we get an assortment of routine covers, with a few decent selections, but like any covers album fails to capture the spirit of the originals. Neil adds some interesting choices and is backed by half of Slaughter, but in the end I can't help but feel this must have taken a weekend to conceive, record and release.

The Songs
Old Vince is proud of his notoriety when it comes to being a perpetual drunk, therefore explaining the significance of the title track, a throwaway rocker with mid 90's overtones, sort of a cross between metal and grunge. The first cover is Cheap Trick's 'He's A Whore,' which like all the covers here features Neil's trademark whine, which to a degree gives the songs somewhat of a new flavour, but not much. Sweet's 'AC/DC' is an inspired selection and reworked sounds like the Crue during their 'Dr Feelgood' days. Aerosmith's 'Nobody's Fault' is thrown into the fray, followed by the other original 'Another Bad Day,' a limp modern rock ballad of sorts. The Sex Pistols 'No Feelings' gets the treatment, much like when the Crue covered 'Anarchy in the U.K.' in 1991. Fast forward ... 'Long Cool Woman' is total boredom, with not one iota of The Hollies classic original and with the addition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's 'Who'll Stop The Rain' makes for two totally uninspired choices. More listenable is Neil tackling 'Another Piece Of Meat' by The Scorpions, the main riff always a heavy proposition even in this weakened state. Vince pays homage to his favourite hangout with a great cover of Elvis Presley's 'Viva Las Vegas' and gives it a heavy metal edge, far more unique than ZZ Top's version all those years back. ZZ Top is heard from again with a cover of 'Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers' which isn't bad, although I was left unmoved by 'The Bitch Is Back,' Neil giving Elton John a whirl. He should have done the L.A Gun's song of the same name instead.

In Summary
If anyone could find a reason to listen to this more than once then I'd love to know how. Neil is skating by on his reputation and having been arrested for DUI just after this albums release I guess he's living up to the whole Tequila aspect of the album title. Whether he (or anyone in Motley Crue) have the inspiration to conjure up anything listenable ever again is doubtful and despite this having its moments, the whole concept is stale and a waste of time.
