"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.
