Music Review: Custom Built

Bret Michaels’ solo album has something for everyone who knows him because of Poison and/or his reality tv appearances. “Custom Built” starts with forgettable attempts at hard rock and switches to forgettable attempts at ballads before a cover of Sublime’s “What I Got” comes up. There’s Poison’s hit power ballad “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”, with a bunch of other musicians to keep the health-fucked Bret Michaels company. The rock mix of “Driven” is the first energetic song here, and even “Open Road” isn’t too bad, it sounds like early Bon Jovi, if that’s your sort of thing. “Rock’n My Country” is a good country-rock jam, and “Nothing To Lose (Bret Only)” sounds better than the one with Miley Cyrus. Guitar effects and stomping beats show up on the lame “I’d Die For You”. “Custom Built” sounds outdated, and Bret Michaels should try writing about subjects other than women, and maybe even get out of that look now.

RATING: 2/5
