Album Review

It was just a matter of time before Bret Michaels released an album to cash in on his television success on the VH1 reality dating show Rock of Love, so it comes as no surprise that the network's record label (appropriately called VH1 Classics) gave him the opportunity to put out Rock My World, a companion album named after his catch phrase on the TV show. The title won't be the only thing familiar about Rock My World for die-hard Bret fans: of its 12 songs, three come from 2005's Freedom of Sound, and a whopping six are from 2003's Songs of Life, which leaves just three new tunes — "Go That Far," "Fallen," "Start Again." Not that anyone outside of diehards would be able to distinguish between the old and new tunes, as Michaels pretty much sticks to alternating glammy rockers with country-ish heartbreak ballads, so they all form a consistent body of work. Plus, neither Freedom of Sound nor Songs of Life received much attention, so this is an effective way to rescue the best moments from both and introduce them to a broader audience. And the audience that Michaels has regained via Rock of Love will find a bunch of stuff to enjoy, from the fizzy hooks of "Bittersweet" to the power ballad "Fallen," and the Rock of Love theme song "Go That Far," which is shameless in its pimping of the program. Will Rock My World appeal to anybody who isn't already a fan of Bret Michaels or the show? Oh no, but thanks to his casual charm on VH1, he has a lot more fans in 2008 than he did in 2003, when he really launched his solo career, and those new fans will find this de facto soundtrack about as much fun as they find the TV show.

Customer Reviews

A few months too late!

I don't know what the purpose of this album is. Everything on it has already been released. The question is will Bret ever write some new songs. Whats the problem here! Are you too busy! Rock of love revived your music career. then you waited until June (months after Rock Of Love 2 was over) to release an album of all old material.I like the music. I was just hoping for an entire album of new stuff! Maybe for rock of love 3 or 4 maybe 5. WRITE SOME NEW SONGS!

Soundtrack for Rock of Love

This is for new fans of Bret that got to know him from the Rock of Love series. His die-hard fans, like myself, have probably already heard these songs except 3 of these songs are sort of new with, "Go That Far", "Fallen", and "Start Again." All of these are excellent songs. So while some fans might be dissapointed like I was when I first saw that this wasn't going to be a new album, but I understand what they're going for here. Without a doubt, if you have none of Bret's cds, you'll love this because it's his best songs.

I fully Agree....These songs have been done....to death on 3 other albums!

I have every song on this album....from OTHER albums. I was very disappointed that this release was not brand new material. I guess Bret has no respect for those of us who have been fans for over 20 years. I enjoyed these songs...when they were ORIGINALLY released. I was sad to see someone I respect put forth such a sad effort. Hope to hear some actually new product from Bret very soon.
