Upon listening to this debut album by Poison, I was beginning to think the only things in life that really mattered were girls, sexily puffed up hair, screeching, sometimes spacy guitars, and the right shade of eyeshadow, all backed up by a never-ending summer.

Listening to this created in me mental vignettes of long-haired people at a beach, playing volleyball, while the barbeque sits on the tailgate of their truck in the parking lot, being watched over by more long-haired people, and all the women are, of course, in bikinis. Some are haughty to coincide with their leanness while others are crying tough due to some breakup. Who says it's not okay to be a 38-year old still feeling the thunder when Betty just won't say 'yes' (and when she does, it's time to brag).

Visual mental results aside, this music is dated in such an enjoyable way as it makes me wish I wasn't 8 years old when it came out; I listen to this and can't stop wishing the modern age was a little more fun. Even though this music, with all its campiness and station wagon charm, isn't a royal form of rock, it is so much more lively and funny and emotional (in such an 11th grade way) than the prone-to-spirit-less stuff the music managers and producers allow to be realeased today.

When Poison sings about how much they like it when girls talk dirty to them, there's something of the intrigue of the romance novel, and combine that with this lightened form of heavy metal and all the hair, and you've got yourself a memory of a different time that seems more intersting than the one we're in now.

When someone thinks about the 80s Hair-Glam metal scene, one of the first bands that pops up is Poison. Lead singer Bret Michaels, guitarist C.C. Deville, bassist Bobby Dall and drummer Rikki Rocket were a big part of the Hair metal movement. They looked like girls, they had poppy songs and big hair, the band had the look, songs and feels of the Glam movement and moving to LA on the sunset strip they were at the right place at the right time and MTV supported them and boosted the band's career. Everything seemed right at the time, Poison's debut "Look What the Cat Dragged In" was released in 1986 when Glam was already big with bands like Ratt, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue.

The album starts out with "Cry Enough", one of the best songs of the album. With this first song you know exactly what Poison is all about and get the feel of what they were doing. "I Want Action" is great, the band is full of energy on this song . "Talk Dirty to Me" is one of the band's best known songs and a very good one too. It had a great riff, catchy and just a great song. "I Won't Forget You" is a ballad, not as good as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" of course but still a very good ballad."Play Dirty" is another good song. "Look What the Cat Dragged In" is one of my favorites here, catchy and silly with lyrics like: "Oh my god look what the cat dragged in, livin' my life, sinner to sin" don't have any depth but they weren't mean to and they don't need to. "Want Some Need Some" another solid song for Poison. "Blame It on You" is not bad but it's not great either. "#1 Bad Boy" is probably the song I like least, I don't hate it but it's pretty cheesy. Back in the 80s this may have worked but not in these times. "Let Me Go To the Show" is a solid 80s track and I really like this one.

I was looking at CD's one day and this one came up in the "you might also like" category, but I had been "on the fence" about getting this album for months. After much debating with myself, I finally caved and bought it, thinking I was gonna wind up passing it on to my cousin. Yup, I'll listen to it once, and if I don't like it, my cousin can have it.

I think it's safe to say he's not getting mine.

Did I like what I heard? HECK YEAH!! "Let Me Go To The Show" gives a nice visual - imagine a teenage Bret Michaels begging his mom to let him go to the show, only to get a big fat N-O for a response. So he does what any rebellious teenager would do - sneaks off to the show anyway, and gets busted for it later. The icing on the cake is the father's rant at the end of the song: "YOU HEARD YOUR MOTHER!! TURN THAT OFF!!". And they definitely give Jim Croce a run for his money with "Don't Mess Around With Jim" by putting their own twist on the song to close out the album. If you're new to their music (much like myself) or a fan from back in the day, you'll want this album for your collection - if you don't already have a copy, that is.

Look What the Cat Dragged In is a solid debut from 1986 by the glam metal band Poison. Of course, lots of people have already heard the songs "Talk Dirty to Me" and "I Want Action," but I think the other songs here also have great hooks and melodies.

In my opinion, the songs on this album, while being well-polished, still have just a little more of a raw, bar-band edge to them than songs on Poison's other albums--especially "Play Dirty" and "Want Some, Need Some." The title track is downright HEAVY, and "I Won't Forget You" is a really nice ballad. As a guitarist, I can tell you that C.C. Deville's guitar work and solos are fantastic throughout the album, and the rhythm section really pounds too. Bret Michaels isn't what I would call a technically gifted singer like Rob Halford or Michael Kiske, but I think his style works just fine for Poison's music.

I highly recommend this Poison album, as well as the two that followed it, Open Up and Say...Ahh! and Flesh & Blood. This is perfectly-executed glam metal. Just don't take it too seriously and have fun with it!
