2.0 out of 5 stars Plastic & Fake Feb. 23 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Hard to believe there is such a thing as a Warrant remaster. Cherry Pie (original title: Vertical Smile) was released in 1990. I gave up on this band in '91 for the following reasons:

1. In a Guitar World interview, they revealed that they employed two guitar teachers to write the guitar solos for them.
2. The opening scream to "Cherry Pie" is Dee Snider, sampled from the Twisted Sister album Love Is for Suckers. Warrant and producer Beau Hill tried to pawn it off as Jani Lane's voice.
3. Jani's voice here is so multi-tracked that you don't even know if the guy can actually sing.

I decided that I didn't want to listen to music this fake anymore. I moved on to Led Zeppelin and I don't think that was a bad move.

Anyway, now that you have been forewarned, this is actually not a bad hard rock album which is why I gave it two stars. "Rainmaker", the cover of Blackfoot's "Train, Train" and especially "Uncle Tom's Cabin" all hold up remarkably well. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" is actually an excellent song, with its banjo opening and it's lyrically not even that bad. The worst tracks tend to be the hits -- "Cherry Pie" is embarassing, and "I Saw Red" was better in its acoustic version.

Which leads me to the bonus tracks. "Game Of War" was a pre-DRFSR demo and I have no idea why it's on this album. It's an OK song but would have been better released on the DRFSR remaster. "The Power" is a B-side from the dreadful "We Will Rock You" single, and should have been on a Dog Eat Dog reissue. So I am very confused by their inclusion here.

4.0 out of 5 stars definitely my favorite Warrant album Dec 8 2003
By eric_f
Format:Audio CD
While I don't think that Warrant was necessarily the greatest hair band ever, they were a solid act that produced some very memorable songs of that time. As with all hair bands, they became obsolete in the early 90's when Nirvana took over the music world and began the Grundge movement. Since then, Warrant has still been putting out albums with a more "modern" sound, to mixed results. But they'll always be remembered most for their three first albums, DRFSR, Cherry Pie, and the often forgotten but very solid Dog Eat Dog.
I've listened to all of their albums (newer ones included) but I always go back to Cherry Pie. In my opinion this is their best album. DRFSR was very good but seemed to be restrained, both in terms of the music and the production. They were just starting out then, and it showed. Don't get me wrong, it's a good album and contains most of their hits. But I just don't think they were at their creative peak during that time. With Cherry Pie, on the other hand, Warrant let themselves loose and showed what they're capable of. The songs are more diverse (musically as well as lyrically) and the production is right on target and lets you really hear the songs to their full capacity.
Don't judge this album by the title track, as it's the only blatant "party" song on the album. In fact the song that directly follows, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," is about death and murder. "I Saw Red" is a very nice and well-written ballad about heartbreak (there's an excellent acoustic version on their Greatest Hits album worth checking out). The rest of the album follows the same tone with more great hard rock songs. The only track I could have done without is "Ode To Tipper Gore" which is basically one long stage banter collage of profanities.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Fun Album of the Hair Band Era Nov. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Cherry Pie" is blatantly cheesy. Flying in just under bands like Poison, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue, Warrant was the late 80's answer to modern silly boys like Good Charlotte. Their songs held very little weight, even when compared to their peers at the time, but you just had to listen to this stuff. The title track is so obvious in its sexual innuendo that it's almost ashame. How long do you think it took them to come up with "Cherry Pie" anyway(enter Beavis and Butthead huh-huhs here)? "Mr. Rainmaker," "Uncle Tom's Cabin," etc. were all just a bunch of songs by guys trying to have a good time, and they were successful.
Sadly, this album doesn't hold up as well as some of its competition back in the late 80's. "Dirty, Rotten, Filthy, Stinking" was better, but even it lost some steam somewhere around 1992.
Warrant was cool back in the eighties, but now, a lot of people would laugh them off. I wouldn't, because I grew up listening to them and others of that period. They will never go down as an influential powerhouse, but somewhere right now, somebody is listening to "Cherry Pie," and loving it. If for no other reason but to relive that party back in junior year, buy this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cherry Pie? What can I say about this album? July 14 2006
By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Warrant's Cherry Pie produced hit singles with Cherry Pie, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Blind Faith and the acoustic top ten ballad, I Saw Red. Cherry Pie was Jani Lane at his best. I know Jani Lane's no longer with Warrant and much like Sebastian Back and Skid Row, Warrant will be challenged to return to the success that they experienced in the early 90s and the late 80s.

Cherry Pie is a classic hair metal album and definitively one of the best albums recorded.

Personally, I prefer the power ballad version of I Saw Red.
