3.0 out of 5 stars interesting May 14, 2011
By jimthar
Format:Audio CD
i typically dont pay much attention to bands that constantly release "greatest hits" albums, repeatedly. iron maiden is famous for this and motley crue just released their 3rd or 4th GH. plus this is, i believe, poison's 3rd GH set, with one already having been released a year or so ago.
having said that, i just looked at the track listing for this release and, i have to say, im impressed. it's a great career-spanning retrospective on the band. i also like that they included rare tracks like 'livin for the minute' (which was the b-side to 'every rose' and actually a great song) and 'face the hangman'. these tracks mixed with their usual hits and some more songs off of their less popular albums should make for a good listen. and with most of the songs having been remastered, the sound quality should be outstanding.
my only real complaint is that there are too many cover songs on this album. 6 by my count. now i realize that over a long career, most bands will at some point record cover songs. but i think to include them on a GH album is a little disingenuous since those are not songs written by the band in question. and adding 6 covers to one album is, im my mind, a little bit excessive. but that is my only complaint about this album (well the cover art could have been better too)
but all in all, i'd say this is a great GH release by the band. if it's your first time buying a GH from poison then this is the perfect one to get. or if you're someone new to poison and is just getting into their music then this is a good jumping off point for an introduction to the band.
judging by the track listing, i'd recommend this to any poison fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars A double dose of Poison is too much June 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Its 2011, 1980's Glam band Poison is going on a summer tour and it's always better to have an album to promote the tour. With no new material ready Poison releases yet another greatest hits album by default of not having something to promote on this summer tour. As a compilation, Double Dose: Ultimate Hits is a great overlook of Poison's hits, but while it's nice to have a two disc package but I really wish the band would stop releasing best-of albums to fill their recording contract instead of new material. Double Dose has 35 of Poison's best songs (and some "meh" ones) and is really more than the average listener needs, a fan would be better off with another best-of album like The Best of Poison: 20 Years of Rock or even Poison's Greatest hits 1986-1996 instead of buying a double dose. I don't even think Poison had 35 hits so the "Ultimate Hits" part is far from accurate. In fact a double dose seems unnecessary after so many greatest hits albums and box set releases over the years.

Disc 1 has a good part of Poison's best material, they could have fitted the best songs from this two disc greatest hits album and that would have been a strong Poison collection. I understand that a second disc can be highly beneficial for bands that have plenty of great songs and have had a lengthy career but as much as I like Poison, I don't think they need a two-disc compilation at all. The advantage is of course having more of Poison for a great price but even those who are not all that familiar with the band will probably go for the single disc compilation. Disc two has 5 songs from Poison'd, covers only, if they had to include 5 songs from an album of songs that were not even the band's originals it proves my point that they had too much place to fill. The thing is, out of 35 songs, 8 are covers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Double Dose May 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
To mark their 25th anniversary and summer tour with MÖTLEY CRÜE, POISON has issued a two CD set containing 35 songs. All the hits that made Bret and the boys famous have been repackaged once again - a mere six months after the release of Nothin' But A Good Time: The Poison Collection - which came with a bonus bandana. Increasing the bitterness towards this cash grab is the fact that since the release of their 20th anniversary Best Of in 2006, the glam rockers have only managed one new album - the all covers Poison'd. Just how many times die-hard fans will open their wallets, or purses, to pay for the same songs over and over remains to be seen. But the bottom line is, when the weather gets warmer, an ice cold beer tastes that much better, and the cougars are on the prowl - there's nothing better than cranking `Look What The Cat Dragged In', `I Want Action' and `Unskinny Bop'. As the days get hotter, so do the nights. But come on C.C., give us some new material already.

This is all the Poison you will ever need. This is actually, by a country mile, far MORE than all the Poison you will ever need.

"Double Dose:Ultimate Hits" is the latest, and given its' breadth, likely the last Poison greatest hits collection. There never needs to be another.

Rock, as we all know, comes in all sorts of flavors. Some of us like smart, literate, intelligent rock; others like mindless, fun, dumb ol' rock and roll.

There are infinite pleasures in both.

Poison, bless them, are dumb as posts.
Not "dumb" as in, say, Kiss' "Rock and Roll All Nite" or Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me"...huge, fist-pumping anthems performed with a certain style, winking in a way to the audience letting us know not only are they IN on the joke...they LIKE the joke.

This is "dumb" as in earnest, clueless, simple. When they sing "Nothin' But A Good Time", it's not like they know they're writing a party anthem, it's like they're trying to convince you that there really is nothing like a good time. They're grabbing you by the shoulders, looking at you straight in the eye, and saying, "Dude, listen. Really man, there TOTALLY is nothing like a good time! NOTHIN'!"

This honesty...this lack of pretense...actually makes some of these songs, God help me, absolutely irresistible. Driving around, with the top down, blasting "Talk Dirty to Me" or "Fallen Angel", singing along with every word...that's where these songs work.
Hiding my embarrassment at stoplights was a minor price to pay for the sublime joy of huge chords, thrashing drums and moronic lyrics.

Mind you, there is PUH-LENTY of awful music here...some of this stuff is so bad it is impossible NOT to laugh...and impossible NOT to keep listening either.

Double Dose Track List
It's interesting that disc one matches the fist 17 tracks from Best Of: 20 Years of Rock exactly, with the 18th track on disc 2. Disc 2 has a few more good album tracks, but is filled out with cover tunes. Read More
