After leaving Van Halen in the mid-Eighties, David Lee Roth scored a smidgen of pop success with tunes that bordered on Vegas-style schlock. On his seventh solo album, he sticks to a more palatable brand of sleaze blues, with a competent bar band backing up his feisty come-ons. Roth sounds plenty energetic, but the whole package is forgettable -- the only time he works up any sense of urgency is on the unfortunately titled "Thug Pop." Turns out he's not such a gigolo after all -- just kind of a bore.
