You can order this CD for $6.99 and physically own it OR you can pay $10.99 for a digital NOTHING copy. You can't resell MP3s if you got tired of it. I was in Everyday Music in Portland OR this past weekend and found a CD I know sells for Sony's new $6.99 price-point and they had a used one for $8.50 - that's kind of the same kind of price gouging the record companies are doing with these easy MP3s.
Warrant - Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich CD - Awesome. I had it on cassette (including a cassette single of "Down Boys") in my youth. I'm very pleased with the remastering/repacking work. The old red letter Sony CD is out and the new repacking is in. Just buy it on CD though and save yourself $4.
I told someone at Everday their CD was priced too high and he lowered it to $3.95 and I bought it. To buy this MP3, make it $4.99 and I might consider it.
Warrant had been around for several years before they dropped their major label debut album, "Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich" in 1989. The album is a non-stop party from open to finish, and after just a couple seconds, it takes you back to the days when music was fun and creative, not just drum beats and Nirvana clones. Once you get past all the 80's cliches, this album really is one of the better releases from the genre. My favorite tracks from DRFSR are, "Big Talk", "Down Boys", "32 Pennies", "Heaven", and "Sometimes She Cries". The latter being one of the best ballads ever, in my own opinion.
I will make no apologies for it, I love Warrant. These guys were talented, creative, and Jani Lane was one of the best song writers from the era. The dude could flat out write a good rock song. I recommend this album to everyone, it's not their best work, that honor goes to "Dog Eat Dog", but it most certainly deserves a listen.
Years later I still love 80's rock, and yes I have a soft spot for Warrant. And why not? Their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich might have been the cheesiest example of 80's excess, but it's the good kind of cheese. The fun kind that makes you drum on your steering wheel and shout along to a catchy rocker like Big Talk or Down Boys. There aren't enough albums these days that put a smile on my face like this one does.
DRFSR has its share of unimpressive songs, from filler like 32 Pennies and So Damn Pretty (Should Be Against the Law) to the downright dreadful In the Sticks and the title track. Still, there are enough good songs on here that I still find myself reaching for the CD from time to time. In addition to Down Boys and Big Talk, Sometimes She Cries is actually a much better power ballad than Heaven, and Ridin' High and Cold Sweat end the album with a hard rockin' bang.
Warrant have since become the poster boys for all that was wrong with the 80's hair metal scene, and perhaps deservedly so, but a lot of people enjoyed their brand of substance free, feel-good rock & roll back in the day, and no amount of Nirvana or (God help us all) Coldplay albums can ever change that.
NOTE: DRFSR was reissued in 2004 with digitally remastered sound and a pair of bonus demo tracks. The demos are interesting, but they're also pretty rough.
