Obviously, I've heard a lot of Poison over the years and own their Open up and say...Ahhhh! album but Native Tongue seemed to have a more mature, slightly funkier sound than the glam metal of before and also saw the band shred the make-up and girly image they had in the 80's. This was due in part to the arrival of Richie Kotzen on guitar, whose funky, bluesy rock style dominates this album. But big Poison fans shouldn't be put off as songs like The Scream, Body Talk, 7 Days Over You, and Blind Faith could well be up there with their finest work; funky riffs, big, catchy choruses and hooks means that hard rock fans have plenty to enjoy.
Any Poison fans reading this, feel free to recommend me more of their stuff!
