Utter crap. Purely and simply….shit. Even worse, as at least shit can be used for fertilizer. Composting this release would be akin to dumping a 50 Gallon drum of highest quality Chernobyl soil into your veggie patch.
This type of collaboration release really is the lowest form of musical intelligence. Frankly, I’m amazed that Michaels found yet another excuse to roll out the same tired old songs for yet another run. Note to Bret – no one wants to hear these songs again, ok?
Take for example Nothing But a Good Time. Not only is this version devoid of any energy or signs of life, but he has rapper Lil Jon cannibalize any hint of a chorus melody. My ears are still pissed off with me. Just because you hung out with the dude on Celebrity Apprentice doesn’t mean you need to make music with him. Didn’t Meatloaf’s last CD teach you any lessons?
And Sweet Home Alabama? Oh yeah…there’s a song that is never covered elsewhere – let’s do that!
I could go on, but frankly – if you need to read any further evidence to decide if this release is for you, then you deserve it.
The production is beyond shiteous. The singing is horrendous. The songs are the same tired old craptastic tunes as featured on Bret’s last 4 releases and the energy level rates about as high as his latest foray into getting laid on reality TV.
This is an insult to fans, an insult to all the guests rounded up to appear – seriously – how did he do that? Is Michaels really owed that many favors?
In a word – embarrassing. Embarrassing for all involved. Stunning that it took this may people to make an album this epically bad. One of the worst releases by a major artist that I have reviewed in the last 15 years.
