After the other Warrant vs Poison thread I thought I'd make this poll to see how it comes out.

 

 

For me:

 

1. Warrant

2. DRFSR

3. Cherry Pie

4. Dog Eat Dog(barely as I love Flesh & Blood)

5. Native Tongue(very close as I also really liked Ultraphobic)

6. Belly to Belly would be most hated even though I do like some songs on it.

Awesome poll, my cousin.

 

1. Poison

2. Look what the cat dragged in

3. Cherry Pie

4. Dog Eat Dog

5. Native Tongue

6. Belly to Belly ('Letter to a friend' is better than anything on 'Hollyweird' and it's hard to comprehend there is actually a worse album than 'Hollyweird', but 'Belly to Belly' is just outright terrible)

As far as Belly to Belly goes if it wasnt a Warrant album it wouldn't of been half bad imo.

I liked "Letter to a Friend", "Feels Good", "Coffee House", and "Indian Giver".

 

The thing that killed Hollyweird was 1) CC Deville singing 3 songs, 2) Not enough killer songs, and 3) The production was just plain horrible.

Sorry mate, can't agree with you on 'Belly to belly'. I like to think I have a very huge soft spot for modern rock albums, and IMO if they'd have been any good I'd probably quite have enjoyed those mid-90's sell-out albums by bands such as Warrant, but the simple fact, IMO, is that they were horrible. If I heard 'Belly to Belly' by another band I'd vomit on it... as an album from Warrant I try my best to pull myself together for the sake of the first 3 albums, and still try to take something away from 'Letter to a freind'.

 

As for what killed 'Hollyweird'... IMO there is not a single aspect of the album that didn't help kill it. The main offenders are obviously the horrible production and the severe lack of half-decent songs. CC's voice is definitely best left off any recording ever too, I agree.

Well at least we agree on 'Hollyweird'.

My Choices were:-

 

Fave Band = WARRANT

Debut = WARRANT "DRFSR"

2nd = WARRANT "Cherry Pie"

3rd = WARRANT "Dog Eat Dog"

4th = Not heard "Native Tongue", but it simply has to be better than "Ultraphobic" so it got my vote.

 

Most Hated = WARRANT "Belly to Belly" (the AWFUL "Ultraphobic" was 2nd worst IMO).

 

So Warrant have both the best & the worst albums IMO. I much prefer a band that has big highs & big lows, to the pure apathy I feel for all of Poison's output...

My choices look like this:

 

1. Warrant

2. DRFSR

3. Cherry Pie (still one of my all time fav pop-metal albums)

4. Dog Eat Dog

5. Ultraphobic (yeah, I like it...sue me :nyanya: )

6. Bell to Belly (an ear-shredding abomination)

Not going to vote in this one, as I think both bands throw up copious amounts of 'Suckage' like no one else. Saying that, Warrant's- 'Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich' weren't too bad in places.

Dislike Poison so each one was easy for me.........Some of Warrant is alright but they are not that crash hot either.

The Poison fans seem to be the silent ones, as they're not doing to bad but every printed reply seems to be almost 100% in favour of Warrant.

I love Poison, 'Dawson's Creek' and am a proud homosexual. Every poster should be proud like me.

    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
