Look What the Cat Dragged In(1986) was Poison's debut album, highlighted by party anthems like Talk Dirty to Me and I Want Action. More hits off this album were the slow ballads, I Won't Forget You and Cry Tough. This album is total glam, slam, thank you, ma'am.
Open Up and Say...Ahh! (1988), The smash follow-up album that permenantly placed Poison on the map. Highlighted by smash hits such as Nothin' But a Good Time, Fallen Angel, and Your Mama Don't Dance. Every Rose has its Thorn is the epitome of a power ballad. This album rocked the charts and totally helped shape an entire genere of music. The original album cover, shown here, was banned in the USA; you won't see it much.
Flesh & Blood (1990), Another smash success for Poison, this album showcases hit singles such as Unskinny Bop, Ride the Wind, and Something to Believe In. Mature song writing and thoughtful themes make
this one of the best.
Swallow This Live (1991), A two CD set covering live shows from the Flesh & Blood tour. Covers all their greatest hits and best songs to date, and has 4 new studio songs at the end of disc two. Poison sounds great live, and this is the next best thing to being there.
Native Tongue (1993), First post-C.C. DeVille album, this album is a radical departure from all previous efforts. This album, featuring guitarist Richie Kotzen, explores more of the blues, an element that has always been obvious on Poison's earlier efforts. Not a commercial success, but definately a good album.
Crack a Smile (unreleased: 1996),A feel-good, anything goes album featuring guitarist Blues Saraceno, but may never be released due to the contract dispute and lawsuit with Capitol Records. Available only as a bootleg.
Poison's Greatest Hits 1986-1996 (1996), Featuring 16 of Poison's greatest singles, plus 2 unreleased songs from Crack a Smile. This album's got 'em all; everything from Talk Dirty to Me to Nothin' But a Good Time to Something to Believe In.
