Product Description

Product Description

Import pressing. Out-of-print in the US. The second song on this album from the premier pop-metal band of the '80s sums up perfectly what Poison was all about: "Nothin' But a Good Time" isn't exactly deep, but it's a fun song. There's other good stuff on what is unquestionably Poison's best album; "Love on the Rocks" and "Look But You Can't Touch" show that this band is at its best when it's not taking itself seriously, though the wistful 'Fallen Angel' remains one of Poison's best songs. "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," on the other hand, has nothing to distinguish it from the flood of power ballads of the late 80s. The cover of 'Your Mama Don't Dance', however, more than makes up for this, with the sense of fun and humor that made Poison so entertaining. EMI.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly strong effort Jan. 21 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Man, did I feel old when this 20th Anniversary Edition came out. I remember buying the cassette back in '89 (the year after it was released). I even conned my dad out of the $10 for it by saying it was for a school project! (It was...sort of, but that's off topic!)

It's also amazing that Poison are still around, and back to the same four guys who rose to fame in the 80's. Although Flesh & Blood is a good album, and Native Tongue is criminally underrated, Open Up and Say...Ahh! is actually quite strong and best represents the early Poison sound.

Starting off with "Love On The Rocks", featuring the lyric "swallow this" which was the original title of the album, Poison are off to a strong start. The riff is catchy, somewhere between glam rock and old classic rock n' roll. What C.C. Deville brings to the party is a love of rock n' roll, and that's why when he left, the band went more bluesy. I even don't mind the guitar sound, I kind of like it. It's overdriven but warm and in control.

From there it's the classic "Nothing But A Good Time". The riff is ripped off from "Deuce" by Kiss, and then later re-ripped off by Kiss for their song "Never Enough". Anyway, you know the hits already, so I won't spend too much time discussing these songs.

What's actually surprising is that Open Up and Say...Ahh! is more than the sum of its singles. The album tracks are almost entirely as strong. "Back to the Rocking Horse" is another Poison rocker, followed by the harmonica-laden-shoulda-been-a-single "Good Love". "Tearin' Down The Walls" ended side one on a fairly strong note, and actually features some interesting changes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poison's Best!! July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am so glad to see so many positive reviews for this fantastic, but unfortunately out of print CD. Each song is an 80's hair metal masterpiece. You will be tapping your foot and humming the chorus all day long to "Love on the Rocks" & "Back to the Rockin' Horse". Poison's charm was also probably the reason they faded so quickly. They provided the soundtrack for Strip Clubs, Drunken Parties, and back-seat quickies. There were never any "heavy" or "deep" songs. It really was about "Nothin But a Good Time". If you haven't heard half of this album already, then you must have been born during the Clinton administration, because I know during the late 80's, this disk never left the turntable of radio station 98 Rock here in Baltimore. If you like Hair Metal and you don't own this album, or the only Poison songs you have are part of collection like "Monster Ballads", then do youself a favor and pick this up. Big Hair, Loud Guitars, and women in spandex.....that is what Hair Metal is all about!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Open up and say, yeaahhh... not bad Nov. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
After doing a more or less straight cover of KISS's "Rock And Roll All Nite" for the Less Than Zero soundtrack, the bad boys of Poison released their second album, Open Up And Say Ahh!, which got into a bit of a controversy because of the album cover. So what's the big deal about a scraggly haired demonic green-eyed woman with a long tongue sticking out? Apparently a lot to the censorship folks. The edited album cover was a narrow strip that merely showed the eyes and orange slightly below and above. Fortunately, I manged to snag the unedited cover.
"Love On The Rocks" recalls Motley Crue and Cinderella, only not as hard as those two groups, but a good enough dose of rock and roll and swaggering bedroom antics. Another track Diamond Dave would be proud of.
"Nothin' But A Good Time" was a good choice for the first single although not as rowdy as the first single from their debut. The theme of blowing one's hard-earned money for a good time to compensate for an unsatisfying job is shown clearly here. The part before the final chorus run-through is a favorite. After CC's solo, comes the rhythmic thumping of the drums in measured time.
Going "Back To The Rocking Horse" seems like a good idea to me. After a brief been-there, done-that explanation, the narrator longs not only for a simpler time but to start all over again. Gosh, the things I'd do if I had the chance, and the world had better look out! A worthy rocker.
A bluesy harmonica and beats owing nods to to "Sweet Emotion" and "Walk This Way" is displayed on "Good Love," which is to the girl of the song what petrol is to a car. The lifestyle led by the couple in this leads neighbours saying "the things you're doing ain't natural, boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars poison! Feb. 7 2003
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Poison CD and I have to say, it is possibly their best. It is a great CD for in the car and just belting out on the hard rock and the beautiful ballads.
Love On The Rocks: one of my favourite songs, an awesome start off sound
Nothin' But A Good Time: everyone knows it, the best way to get a party started
Back To The Rocking Horse: a good song with amazing vocals by Michaels, an overall awesome tune
Good Love: a decent track, not one of my favs but still above average
Tearin' Down The Walls: I love this track, 'screaming, scratching' just a nice track to sing along to!
Look But You Can't Touch: a nice rock song, fans of 80s metal bands will love this song
Fallen Angel: obviously, one of their biggest hits - everyone knows it, it doesn't get old!
Every Rose Has Its Thorn: a sweet ballad that everyone loves
Your Mama Don't Dance: a remake, very good song to "bop" around to
Bad To Be Good: my favourite track on the album, an all around great song with great instruments.
(Bret) Michaels shows off his vocal talent throughout this album, C.C. Deville is possibly one of the best guitarist known to man, Dall is jamming and Rikki Rockett is simply amazing on the drums. I think Poison definitely had it going for them with this amazing album. I recommend it to anyone.
