Classic stuff!

From: Rick Date: April 24, 2001 at 23:14
Really good 'hits' package. I highly recomment it!

From: Eric Date: April 25, 2001 at 0:36
Great stuff here. The best of one of the best bands of all time. Thanks for the link Rickster.

From: John Date: April 25, 2001 at 11:58
I've never been a big Poison fan and waited until a 'hits' package was released to get anything. I do like some of their material, and quite frankly, I must say I strongly feel that 'Something To Believe In' is one of the finest songs in any genre ever written. It's full of emotion and is a classic in it's own right. I respect them as musicians and I do enjoy this CD. Above average.

From: WADELINK Date: October 29, 2001 at 18:25
I THINK THIS ALBUM COULD HAVE BEEN PUT TOGETHER BETTER THAN THIS SONG WISE BUT WHO AM I I JUST ONE PERSON I GIVE IT A 5/10 FOR TRYING

From: Rocker65 Date: March 7, 2003 at 19:03
Great collection of Poison. 8/10

From: Linn T Date: August 24, 2003 at 13:08
Love Poison, and this is a great album!!

From: Date: October 21, 2003 at 3:03
This is one of the best greatest hits packages ever. Whoever put this together knows ROCK. I love the liner notes by Bret and all of the pictures. This CD rocks from beginning to end. POISON!!!!

From: Blaster Date: November 6, 2003 at 3:33
This is the most perfect well thought out compilations of any band, I couldn't name a song its missing, definitely all the Poison I need.

From: 80s fan Date: December 2, 2003 at 10:50
Yes, indeed. All their best. No song missing in here. One of the best hair bands that ever played in the history of music.

From: Aldas Date: April 18, 2004 at 19:32
Not just hte graetest hits but it`s the one of the greatests albums of all times.For those,who loves mid 80`s hair metal ,this is a must have CD.

From: jack Date: May 28, 2004 at 5:39
This album is one of the very first hard rock/metal album i listen to and one of my favourite. Though i don't really like poison much cause they always put image ahead of music and a bunch of 'jokers' in the industry but i guess they are o.k to listen.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 22:40
One of the better greatest hits collections out there. Collects almost all of their worthwile songs, and adds two of the better 'Crack A Smile' tracks. 9/10

From: Kip Date: August 29, 2004 at 18:18
I agree! I'm glad you guys do too. I knew every Poison tune inside and out when this was released, and I wondered what good songs were left off. I could only name a few, and with 20 songs, whatever I would take off I would want to put back. AWESOME job with song selection. Personally I never liked Stand, and would have loved to see either Fire & Ice in it's place (The better song from the same album) or Look, But You Can't Touch, which was one of the songs that hooked me on them. Still, a 10/10

From: Wotty Date: August 29, 2004 at 18:25
Hey Kip,I do like this album,Unskinny Bop and Talk Dirty...are real party rock tracks.Feelin Good.....

From: Muchman Date: September 22, 2004 at 7:25
I pretty much hated Poison during the 80's. Then 90's music hit and well, Poison didn't sound so bad anymore. A fine greatest hits CD that I would recommend to any glam, metal, hard rock fan. Melodic and filled with hooks, a good buy.

From: TIM Date: March 21, 2005 at 1:46
Sorry Kip, but 'Stand' is awesome. I think 'Look What The Cat Dragged In' is supposed to be on this one. I'll check.

From: Geoff Date: March 21, 2005 at 2:12
I will have to agree with Kip here. I lived and breathed Poison for about 5 years (And still love 'em today), and like Kip said I knew every track inside out and I truly love every Poison song from 1986-1993... except 'Souls on fire' and yep, you guessed it... 'Stand'. No matter how much I love the band I always hated that song... and agree 'Fire and Ice' should be here in it's stead, or the beautiful 'Theatre of soul'. Still, great compilation from one of my all-time fave bands.

From: jakki steal Date: May 1, 2005 at 17:20
poison are the kings of cockrock! "talk dirty to me" "unskinny bop" "nothin but a good time" "sexual thing" when i hear those vintage poison songs all on 1 disc all i can think about is having sex with bret michaels or c.c deville!(but ive also been known to fool around with girls whenever i hear those sexy poison songs)! poison are great songwriters! THIS CD HAS ALL THE CLASSIC TRACKS!("stand" is wonderful song! "lay your body down" is very sensual it turns me on just thinking about it!

From: The Jackyl Date: November 10, 2006 at 11:08
Pick this one up, it has all their hits and thats all that are good by these glam boyz.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 11, 2009 at 15:22
This is the only Poison release you need, and contains absolutely every essential song, and some would argue that even that's more than enough. Poison have always been a singles band whose albums were full of filler, so a greatest-hits CD is the perfect for them, much like Buckcherry. Over the years, I've gone from mildly liking Poison to outright hating them, but even I have to admit that this is a very well-put-together collection that doesn't overlook anything, includes the (few) hidden gems the band has. That's where the bulk of my rating comes from, but I almost never pull this disc out for my own listening. It's mainly a chick-pleaser, and I know that'll piss off the dozen or so dudes who actually claim to like Poison without adding something about how "chicks dig 'em," but fuck it. This band was a classic case of image over substance/talent.
