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.

By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER on April 22 2012
Format: Audio CD
The year is 1988. The era of MTV, big hair and power ballads and if there was ever a band tailor-fit made for MTV it was Poison. Two years after releasing their debut album, Pennsylvania's Poison are at it again with their second album Open Up'And Say Ahh! Poison already experienced success with their first album Look What The Cat Dragged In but Open Up cemented their reputation and made history. Not everyone likes Poison's brand of Glammed up Rock and Roll and they have often been singled out as what RNR should not be and as fashion over music. We all have our own opinion, personally I found Poison's music enjoyable and this second album saw them expand a little and reach out to far more people than they did on their first release (thanks largely to the hit ballad 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn).

Open Up is known for two songs in particular. 'Nothin' But A Good Time' is one of them, it's really the 1980's version of 'Rock And Roll All Nite'. It's a party anthem that remains a great fun song today and became a staple of Poison's live shows. What's not to like? The other well known song is the power ballad 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn', a tearjerker written by Bret Michaels about his breakup with an exotic dancer. The song is often featured on ballads compilations and 80's countdowns for excellent reasons. For me the highlight here is probably 'Fallen Angel', a highly melodic energetic song with fantastic vocal harmonies a trademark of the band. This song represents Poison at its best doing what they do best and I like it so much probably because unlike some of the other songs on this album it hasn't been played as often as the other singles although it was a fairly successful single itself.

Poison's second album produced the hits, Fallen Angel, Your Mama Don't Dance and the beautiful ballad- Every Rose Has Its Thorn which topped the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart for three weeks. This album reached #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. After 20 years, this album still rocks and one of the best albums from perhaps the best hair metal band of all-time.

This album is one of the best 80`s party rock albums of all time. When poser bands like Faster Pussycat and Warrant were trying to rule the music scene Poison showed them how it was done. Songs like nothing but a good time and fallen angel are just samples of what this album was really all about. who didnt relate to your mamma dont dance and your daddy dont rock n roll?

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!!!
