This album is great. It hilights the career of one of the greatest bands to ever walk the face of the earth. I honestly can’t say enough about Poison. Greatest Hits 1986-1996 is an excellent retrospective of their career. The album begins with the party rock anthem Nothin but a Good Time, this can be easily interpreted as Poison’s answer to Rock and Roll All Nite by that other makeup wearing band. The next songs are two of their biggest hits, the song that put them on the map, Talk Dirty to Me, and Unskinny Bop. The next song is their biggest hit, Every Rose Has It’s Thorn. The power ballad went to number one in 1988. It really is a great song. Fallen Angel is another party rock stadium ready anthem. I Won’t Forget You is a power ballad off of their debut album. Stand is the only song representing the Native Tongue album which featured Richie Kotzen on guitar. This song like the whole album was nothing really exctitng. Ride the Wind is off of Flesh and Blood, it stays in the same style Poison’s know for, and Cc DeVille’s solo is excellent. The next songs are the concert favorites Look What the Cat Dragged In and I Want Action. These anthems are excellent songs that have stood the test of time. The next songs are both from Flesh and Blood. Life Goes On is another excellent power ballad and Sacrifice is a great rocker. Their first single Cry Tough is next. Even though the single bombed it still deserves a place on this album because it is an excellent song. The next track is a cover version of Your Mama Don’t Dance which Poison made famous. The guitar solo in that song like every other Poison song featuring CC is amazing. So Tell Me Why is a studio track from Swallow this Live, the song is great, I wish that Poison would have recorded a whole album at the time they recorded this song because it probably woul’ve been great. The last of the greatest hits is the power ballad Something to Believe In. This was a really popular song and in my opinion a better song than Every Rose Has It’s Thorn. The last two songs were bonus tracks at the time of the release. Sexual Thing and Lay Your Body Down feature Blues Saraceno on guitar. They were off of the shelved Poison album Crack A Smile which was eventually released in 2000 making these songs not bonus songs anymore. Either way this is a great compilation of the best songs from one of the best bands ever. I reccommend this to anyone who likes good music.
