4.0 out of 5 stars Fans will dig this June 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The idea of a Poison cover album at first seemed super-lame. Maybe I wasn't psyched for this album because of last year's abysmal "Yeah" (2006) from Def Leppard, or it might have been because Poison plays the same set-list every tour (with no songs dating past 1990) and are content being a nostalgia act. Why not just release a new album of all new material? The idea of a cover album seemed like a cash-crab from a creatively bankrupt band. For whatever reason, my expectations for this CD were low.

To my surprise, however, I really love this CD. You can't argue with most of their choices--Tom Petty, the Stones, Alice Cooper, Bowie, etc. If you're thinking that it's sacrilegious for Poison to cover those artists--you needn't worry, as Poison really pulls it off. While you may still prefer the originals, Poison actually does a good job of making these songs their own, hence the name of the album "Poison'd" (2007). Even the really stupid "Little Willy" by Sweet sounds good.

One thing that "Poison'd" has going for it is the band sounds really, really good; perhaps as good as they have ever sounded. While Poison will never be the most technically proficient band on the planet, they sound really tight and on fire on this CD and totally into what they are doing. In other words, they still know how to rock and aren't just interested in going through the motions to get a product out.

I do have one bone to pick with "Poison'd" however, which is its inclusion of five past cover songs (over a third of the album). For one thing, some of them sound out-of-place, as the new songs sound fresh and the old covers "Rock N' Roll All Night," "Your Mamma Don't Dance" and "You Don't Mess Around with Jim" sound stale by comparison, as they are twenty years old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure June 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Poison has always been my "guilty pleasure" band. Not everyone wants to admit they like their music, but I feel that though some of it is cheesy, it's still nothing but good time rock and roll.

Seems that Poison is following the trend of other bands (Def Leppard, Tesla, et al) by putting out an all-covers album, and at least they do the songs they've chosen some decent justice.

However, while most of the tracks they've chosen for "Poison'd" are new, several were released prior, even going as far back as their 1988 release, "Open Up And Say...Ahh!".

"Rock And Roll All Nite" was originally featured on the soundtrack to the motion picture "Less Than Zero", and featured as the b-side to The Bangles' "Hazy Shade Of Winter" CD single. But, since that album is probably out of print, it makes for a nice additon here.

"Your Mama Don't Dance" was featured on 1988's "Open Up And Say...Ahh!"

"Squeeze Box" was featured on 2002's "Hollyweird".

"We're An American Band" was released on just last year on the retrospective CD "The Best Of Poison: 20 Years Of Rock".

While I feel there's hardly anything this band can't do, it would've been nice to have seen them tackle a tune by Disturbed, Staind, Van Halen, or anyone else but Justin Timberlake as a bonus track for the Wal-Mart release. Seeing them cover that kinda cheapens this collection a little, but not much.

A better inclusion than "Sexy Back" would've been their cover of Dr. Hook's "Cover Of The Rolling Stone", from their 2000 release "Crack A Smile" (which also includes their "MTV Unplugged" performance), and has the band (supposedly) drunkenly trying to get through the recording as best as they can.

In any case, listening to this CD will be "Nothin' But A Good Time".

5.0 out of 5 stars Kickin' It Old School...Glam Style! June 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Nothing excites a music fan like a cover song. If you plan on making one of those you have to do one of two things. Either make it your own or very close to the origional with that little twist that lets the fans know who the cover artist is. Now a cover album...there lies a real challenge. Out of possibly 50 or more cover albums to be released in close to the past 5 years the boys from 80's glam metal band Poison step out from the shadows and make one hell of a cd!

Poison is one of the few bands from the glam metal scene of the late 1980's when bands like them were coming out by the boat loads. Through all the forgetable names Poison is always one of the first three glam bands people always remember. This new album is what Poison always stood for loud guitars, monster ballads and of course one hell of a good time.

I love this cd it has everything a rock fan can ever want. Each track is a classic cover of famous rock songs written by the biggest of the big, like The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and KISS. Poison takes all these songs and pumps them up ten fold using their own classic Poison style. The track that everyone will love it "What I Like About You". Just pure fun the listen to with a guitar intro that punches you right in the face and makes you wake and bang your head. The other great tracks include, Rock N' Roll All Nite, Can't U See, I Need to Know and Your Mama Don't Dance. It is great to see a band like Poison back on the music scene with their fans still with them after all this time and all the cheap shots that chapter in Heavy Metal took. I will say I am glad Poison chose to make this CD because there is no doubt a band like Van Halen or Guns N' Roses would have capitalized on this concept. Better a band that still has some shread of a decent reputation left than a true has been.

Walmart bonus track is... drum roll please...
I love POISON, have since I was 12 years old when FLESH n BLOOD came out. But I would have at least liked them to do a full cover album instead of just 12 new songs. I don't think a AEROSMITH or a SKYNYRD tune would have hurt or even them doing a version of MANNISH BOY since they are so blues... Read More
