Poison has changed their approach on this cd as opposed to their earlier releases. Known strictly as a “party band”, this cd shows us a different side of Poison. Yes, the band still has a lot of fun and some of the songs on this disc may be considered “party” songs, but with such songs as the power ballad “Something to Believe In” and the blues-like “Poor Boy Blues”, Poison shows their diversity as well.
“Ride The Wind” is my favorite song on the disc. C.C. DeVille’s guitar is very noticeable, while Brett Michaels’ voice has never sounded better. “Unskinny Bop”, a song that shows Poison still knows how to have fun, is another of my favorites.
I give this disc my highest recommendation. Poison has completed their transformation from a glam/party band to serious rockers, and it is evident with the songs on this cd. Pick up “Flesh and Blood” and listen to some good old-fashioned, hard-driving rock and roll.
