Only what was expected . . .,
This review is from: Open Up and Say... Ahh! (Audio CD)
Poison were/are an bit of an enigma. They started out all lipstick and pouts, doing a fair impression of the New York Dolls - at least visually(!) - then decided that they wanted to be Bon Jovi.
This album starts them on the that road, with everything that you expect from a band called Poison in the 80's.
'Love on the Rocks'; 'Nothin' But A Good Time'; 'You're Mama Don't Dance', coupled with the obligitory ballad/single for US radio, 'Ev'ry Rose Has It's Thorn'.
10 good tracks from a band who were under-rated, but continued to grow from this album forwards.
