4.0 out of 5 stars Dirty, Rotten, Filthy, Stinkin Good!, 15 Aug 2003
This review is from: The Best Of Warrant (Audio CD)
Really impressive album which seems to bring together the gretest tracks from Warrants last decade and a half-or-so career. Highlights include Down Boys, Cherry Pie, Sometimes she Cries, Uncle Tom's Cabin, DRFSR, and their cover of the Queen anthem We Will Rock You (which was feautred on the soundtrack to gladiator, with cuba gooding junior, not Russel Crowe)
The lyrics are basic and often tongue in cheek, but if you're looking for depth you shouldn't be looking at Warrant anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bret Proves his Individuality, 26 May 2003
This review is from: Songs Of Life (Audio CD)
Okay, so having only actually heard the demos provided for the first 5 songs I can't really say that this is gonna be the greatest album of all time. But from the sounds of it it's gonna come pretty damn close. Bret Michaels, who remains as Poison's vocalist is always linked with crazy '80s behaviour, power ballads, and that motorcycle. What many do not take the time to realise is that this guy goes really deep in his songs, which is evident throughout Poison history. The songs on this album appear to take the same form: powerful vocals, powerful lyrics, and ass-kicking riffs. Many a time vocalists have tried to break away from their band chains and produce solo efforts- and many a time they have crashed but Michaels pulls it off with tight rhythm, polished structure and hopefully a tour to follow through. If you want to see the progression of Bret's stuff, buy the best of Poison album, it shows you outwardly that this guy can make it on his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bop, Cat and Dirty!, 10 Mar 2003
Now, I'm only fifteen, so I missed out on the real hair metal boom, and the only reason I even heard of poison is because teir lyrics were used in Bill and Ted. But as soon as i began to listen to these songs I realised what I had missed out on, so when I saw the greatest hits on here for such a low price i thought 'MUST GET THAT ALBUM'!. This album covers all of poison's greatest stuff, as well as two unreleased songs which still reach poison standard. Songs include Nothin' but a Good Time(The opening track which really sets the mood up fantastically), Talk dirty to me, Unskinny Bop, Fallen Angel (My personal favourite)and the fantastic acoustic rock ballad Every Rose Has its Thorn. If you buy any poison album, buy this one. If you already have all the other poison albums, buy this one for the two unreleased tracks anyway, they kick serious ass. Rock n Roll!
