This review is from: Look What the Cat Dragged In (Audio CD)
When this album was released in 1986, I was only 1 year of age but now that I'm older and broadening my musical tastes, I've stumbled upon Poison, the only hair metal band I ever found tasteful.
This album is now a classic, even though glam rock has died, it is not forgotten and Poison are still out there performing the hits from their debut album. An excellent album, the perfect glam rock album, ever.
Track Listings /
1. Cry Tough / an excellent opener, the perfect 'stand tall' song, a great chorus
2. I Want Action / my least favourite song, a very odd track featuring sexual lyrics
3. I Won't Forget You / the first ballad, a song written about their friends and family they were leaving behind to record the album
4. Play Dirty / one of the more forgettable tracks, still a nice track
5. Look What the Cat Dragged In / everyone knows (well should) this song, poppy rock with excellent guitar riffs
6. Talk Dirty to Me / another single, sexual driven lyrics, excellent song especially live
7. Want Some, Need Some / one of the other forgettable tracks, not outstanding but good
8. Blame It on You / lacking musically but lyrically it's great
9. #1 Bad Boy / sounds like it would have been a single, not up to par vocally but I still find this song fun to listen to anytime
10. Let Me Go to the Show / my favourite song on the album, a great closing song, kind of childish but it's so fun - kind of a guilty pleasure.
In all, this is a great album that sums up glam rock pretty well, a must for any 80s fan.
