Poison produced this album when they ditched the glam look of lipstick, hair spray, and eyeliner. But one thing still remained and that was Poison's power cords. One of the leading singles from this album "Unskinny Bop" became one of Poison's Greatest Hits. In my opinion all the other songs on this album are outstanding, and just for good measure in case anyone had forgot "Swawpjuice" (Soul O) is added just to remined people about CC's solo skills. The "Strange Days Of Uncle Jack" to start the album is certainly "strange". But a must for all fans. A mixture of rock sounds on tracks such as "Unskinny Bop", and "Don't Give Up A Inch", just to name two. Then you listen to the classic Poison stuff, "Something To Believe In", and "Life Goes On". These songs are of a slower nature but you can't help but love them. This album is well worth getting.

Gone is the makeup and spandex and in comes a slighlty more mature Poison. Not as outstanding as previous releases but it still maintains the essence of the old days. "Unskinny Bop" is prehaps the standout track. A fair album, but should be appreicated by fans.

Hair rock so fine that it should be mandotarily piped in to all hairdressers in Europe.
The first track is bizarre, but the rest of the album is A-class stuff. Buy it - buy it now!!!

They wanted to be Bon Jovi really. As much as JBJ wanted to be The Boss, so Poison wanted to be Bon Jovi.
This album is where they matured and really gave it a stab. Not a bad effort either. Good power chords and shouted vocals, excellant rockers - Unskinny Bop, Valley of Lost Souls, Ride The Wind - with the expected ballads/hits - Life Goes On, Something To Believe In.
No more Glam or liptick, more 'serious' music - if Poison were ever really serious(?) A good reminder that despipte all the brick-bats which were hurled in their direction at the time, they really could play. Not only that they were (as this album attests) - and still are - very good.
This is not only a good '80's' Rock album it's a good ROCK Album, period.

Ok, ok, many years overdue. A darker more thoughtful album but still full of toe tapping good time typical poison songs but also, and as a nice addition - some deeper life experiences included. if you like poison this won't disappoint (later albums have) High recommended
