CAUTION Fellow ROCKER'S this cd SUCK'S SHIT.Dont get me wrong though i love Warrant they are a great band but why why did they have to put out this cd is beyond me i use my copy to sit my coffee cup on in the morning.If you want Warrant at there best get Cherry Pie or Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinkin Rich.

From: Vixen Date: August 18, 2001 at 14:31
So very true.It suck donkeys!!When it got out I thought YES!But HELL NO got bumbed out totally.Their worst album.Had to check twice if i was listen to the right band.I was a major Warrant fan but that lasted up to Ultraphobic.Which was clearly the beginning of the end of Warrant a tragical result of the band falling apart.The first 3 albums kicked ass!I totally love D.R.F.S.R. And D.E.D. was a very good psychological album.Cherry Pie excellent!Wish they were still together making their old music

From: T-BONE Date: September 14, 2001 at 13:20
Couldn't agree more. Grunge Warrant? Sellouts!!! I can see that they are now going back to their old style on their new cd's, but they need Steven Sweet and Joey Allen back to make it complete. This was a bad move for Warrant. The grunge people laughed at them, and the Hard rock people lost faith in them. Now their stuck in limbo. Not worth getting at all.

From: koogles Date: January 1, 2002 at 14:29
Warrant had definitely lost the plot by the time this atrocity was released. This was a big cherry pie in the face of every fan who bought their first 3 albums. Dirty, rotten, filthy, stinking Warrant!!!

From: Reno Date: April 16, 2002 at 22:43
Saw Warrant play a few months ago in St. Paul. Jani Lane is trying so damn hard to be a bad ass. hahaha...Give it up!! You're a great songwriter and vocalist, but enough with the wanna be hard ass. He kept bringing up the drugs and sex innuendos to the crowd. They were laughing at him and he didn't even realize it. The new Guitarist is great, but this new line up doesn't come close to cuttin' it. The original line up need to return with the original sound. P.S. Jani..Quit hacking your best songs

From: Tony Date: April 18, 2002 at 9:21
It scares me that Jani Lane just jerks off over this stuff!! It's not that the songs are all that bad but this might be the most blatant sell out, bandwagon jumping, musically compromising album EVER released by a major band. The fans aren't dumb!! And why is he SSSOOO embarassed of early Warrant material now?? man that stuff meant a lot to a ton of people while this stuff is just fodder for his ego. Love Warrant but this is atrocious!!

From: RichieRocker Date: July 6, 2002 at 12:43
Friggin sellouts, this album is horribile!!they need to stick to the basics, and where would they be if it were not for the fans. Why would he hate the old material?? It made them huge! R.I.P. Ted Williams.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: July 6, 2002 at 12:54
Maybe Jani is embarassed because of their video's. Looking back, they are pretty sad vid's. Another thing could be this, alot of bands just get sick of playing their old shit. For years they played this stuff night after night, over and over and over. You play a record once a day for 6 months and see how sick of it you get.

From: RichieRocker Date: July 6, 2002 at 14:35
Yah, thanks Pal!

From: booper71 Date: July 12, 2002 at 3:11
A classic disc full of undiscovered rock gems, an AOR masterpiece from a band that ascended from their hair band roots. Better than anything Metallica ever put out!

From: RichieRocker Date: July 12, 2002 at 6:06
Im sorry Booper I disagree with you!!

From: T-BONE Date: July 12, 2002 at 7:20
This cd was a total sellout on Warrants part booper. Have you ever plunged a toilet? Thats where you'd find this disc. Right next to anything Metallica put out after the Black album. Straight down the shitter with all of them.

From: booper71 Date: July 12, 2002 at 11:42
I like their newest cd, Under the influence, it has a good song called 'Face' on it. They also add several classic remakes of cheap trick and david bowie songs.

From: T-BONE Date: July 13, 2002 at 3:06
Warrant used to be a very good band, but Jani is pretty much dragging them down the shitter. They need a full album full of new material in the style of Cherry Pie to go anywhere or they're completely finished. The last two times I've seen them in concert really sucked and they didn't even sell out the club. There were about 350 people there and it's a 1000+ venue. Go figure?

From: Blue Tequila Date: August 16, 2002 at 20:20
Man what a horrible album. I bought and sold this album the same day because it was so bad. Their concerts are good though. I agree with you Booper, Face is a great song. Kind of a throwback to the Cherry Pie/Dog Eat Dog days. Too bad they can't release a whole album that maintains that sound. But they won't.

From: James Date: December 22, 2002 at 14:39
I understand bands need to grow and mature but something like this is just crap. Don't these people realise that their fans will not buy this sound and any new people won't buy it because of who they are???? When a band jumps onto a bandwagon they lose their old fans and don't pick up any new ones so it is a lose lose situation for them??? 25 cents to use for a coster or a circle pattern to do cutouts or drawings is too much to pay. take it only if someone pays you to take it.

From: Gar Date: January 9, 2003 at 21:14
Yeah, they were trying to bury their past with this one. But there are a few good songs here like 'Indian Giver', and 'All 4 U' is a nice change of pace for a ballad. I was tempted to get rid of this after I first heard it, but I gave it another chance. It's definitely not their best, but they did put some effort into it; trying to sound current.

From: mutha trucka Date: January 19, 2003 at 4:35
interlude # 2 rocks! but seriously, the only reason i kept this cd is cause its warrant (i think) havent listned to it in years.. never will.

From: Hrudet Date: June 22, 2003 at 14:53
While maintaining their 90's sound, it isn't entirely grunge, but it is still eons from their original sound. What it does do, is retain some of that melody that so many grunge acts don't have. In doing that, you get some strong songs, with strong choruses, and Jani Lane singing strongly. The first half has to be said to be the strongest, with it all falling away a little towards the end. But with tracks like 'In The End', 'Feels Good' and 'Vertigo', overall it's not bad at all.

From: Benn Date: June 27, 2003 at 0:22
I like it. It's nowhere as good as Cherry Pie or DRFSR, but it's good.

From: RattnRoll Date: September 4, 2003 at 9:48
The working title has vol.1 in it. The day they finish vol. 2 is the day I honestly slit my wrists. This has to be the worst effort ever performed by otherwise talented musicians.

From: CC Date: October 29, 2003 at 10:52
I really liked this one. Ok so I wouldnt say it was their best as all the previous albums are more my style,but there are some great tunes on here from a band who took the modern sound & put their own twist on it unlike Wildside,Sven Gali & Dangerous Toys who just jumped into alternative feet first! I guess Janis song writing skills were what saved Warrant from changing styles without totally stopping being Warrant! I can understand why some diehard fans dont like it,but its not that bad!

From: Metal Pete Date: January 30, 2004 at 18:53
Wow. I kinda dug some songs on 'Ultraphobic', so I hoped this one would be good, maybe better. Wrong. This one is terrible, not even worthy of being here. I gave it away. Stopped following warrant because of this miserable steaming pile of crap. What was he thinking?? I cannot fathom that the same guy who sand 'Inside Out' put this atrocity out for public consumption.

From: STEVEN@ENGLANDU Date: February 23, 2004 at 20:54
YEA YEA YEA WHY do you all moan on at this record?? cherry pie this.... drfsr this.... dont you people realise those records were made?? why would they choose to record the same record??.. they moved on and grew the songs were mature and EXCELLENT ultraphobic turned warrant into a new fresh and better direction.... great cd!!

From: Blue Tequila Date: February 24, 2004 at 1:51
I moan on at this record because it sucks. But Ultraphobic was pretty decent. I still throw it in every now and then.

From: Metal Pete Date: February 24, 2004 at 10:26
'Belly to Belly' is a terrible experiment that never should have happened. Kind of like Accept trying to replace Udo. Except, unfortunately, it's still Jani Lane on there which quadruples the embarrassment to the band. This disc needs to go out of print and never return.

From: Gar Date: February 24, 2004 at 19:42
Back when I first got this I pretty much had the same opinion as most everybody else on this page: that it totally sucked. But I decided to give it another try before I tried to trade it in. 2nd listen wasn't as bad and I decided keep it, mainly because I didn't want any gaps in my Warrant collection. Over time I find myself playing this disc more and more. It's really not bad. Sure it's not their best, and a few of the songs are complete misfires, but somehow this has grown on me. Scary.

From: Gar Date: February 24, 2004 at 19:44
cont.. Maybe now I'll give the 2nd Wildside album another chance... nah, that one DID totally suck!

From: kipjuanjo Date: May 25, 2004 at 13:02
a very awful album from this great band.Everytime I hear it i have to go to W.C. Spanish: A kien se le ocurra comprar este cd, aunque sea de overstock, ya puede pedir que le devuelvan el dinero más intereses, porque menudo pedazo de mojón que se pegaron estos colegas.Ozú que retortijón me dá cada vez que me acuerdo de cuando lo compré.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 30, 2004 at 16:58
If you don't mind grunge, then you will like this album. While the music is update to more of the grunge sound, Jani Lane can still write good melodies ('In The End' and 'A.Y.M.). 6/10

From: ALEXX GLAM Date: July 8, 2004 at 20:05
THIS ONE SUCKS BIG TIME NOTHING GOOD TO SAY

From: Geoff Date: August 17, 2004 at 0:48
Now this one is another story. 'Ultraphobic' grew on me, but this remains a sloppy peice of shit of my bathroom floor if ever I saw one. From a band I love this was inexcusable and tears flowed as I listened to it. 'Letter to a friend' is an excellent song but the rest reminds me of what Dokken did to me with 'Shadowlife'. Crap, crap and more crap! One of the worst CDs I ever recall hearing.

From: jack Date: August 19, 2004 at 5:11
This album is no better tha shadowlife. Warrant really have gone too far this time,going so deep to the alternative territory. Don't they have any love for hair metal music or at least stayed that way. Poison may be as overrated as warrant but at least they never turn grunge or alternative!

From: Warhead Date: August 22, 2004 at 19:42
Belly 2 Belly is probably one of the best cd's to be released. However, it should have been released under a different name. Fans of Warrant will be hip to Jani's creative ability to sing a melody, but the lyrical content and the moody vibe will not jive with them. Warrant should have taken advice from the industry and changed their name. Believe me, the industry would have backed this album if 'Warrant' wasn't tacked to it. A.Y.M. and Indian Giver are great rockers...too bad for the down boys.

From: Halenon6 Date: August 25, 2004 at 0:06
A.Y.M.,Indian Giver,Vertigo are rockers.Solid is not that bad of a song despite the negative attitude. Letter 2 a Friend and All 4 U are uplifting ballads.Not in the vein of Heaven or I Saw Red, but at least they have a positive message. Falling Down is misery(although a very cool bassline), while In the End is also a wrong way to kick off an album, especially when the name Warrant(Fun/Party)is putting it out. Coffee House is def. cool, just hard to imagine Warrant doing it. Good cd-wrong name

From: Danny Date: September 23, 2004 at 9:26
Warrant made only two good records (Cherry... and Dog...) a long, long time ago. Since then. they are trying to fool all the hard rock fans with bad live albuns and compilations. Why don t they split up? Give up Warrant, you dont know how to make good music. Listen to Slaughter and Great White, bands that survived the 90s with good music and taste

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 20:25
This one's even worse!!! What on earth was somebody thinking? The grunge grave is a shallow one.

From: emdienne Date: February 16, 2005 at 16:35
You've done it again Propane! This is a criminally underrated album, with great material, ace arrangements, and top notch musicianship. Can't believe it's nearly ten years old now. To these ears it's as vital as ever and will reward handsomely those who are patient! Without doubt in my top twenty all time albums. A much missed band.

From: Andrew Date: June 1, 2005 at 1:36
What a disappointment. Warrant tries to jump on the grunge bandwagon about four years too late and ends up falling flat. 'A.Y.M', 'In The End', and 'Solid' all have their moments, but this mostly a dreadful release. The song 'A.Y.M' is interesting as it seems to be slamming the very grunge movement that Jani Lane and company try to emulate here. I'd definately pass on this one.

From: pereira Date: December 14, 2005 at 10:01
CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT THE F***K IS THIS DOING HERE ON THIS SITE???? THIS ISNT WARRANT!!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 9, 2006 at 22:02
N.A.S.T.Y.!!!!!!!.

From: glamrockerarchie Date: May 2, 2007 at 16:19
worst piece of junk to come from an 80s band next to shadowlife from dokken. ultrphbobic at least listenable with the best track being family picnic, save your money on this one

From: ninjapeter Date: October 8, 2008 at 2:06
All I can say is I hope their won't be a volume 2. This is pure garbage. Avoid !!!

From: Buitre Date: January 27, 2009 at 6:14
Vol. 1? Thanks God it was just a joke and no vol. 2 has made it so far. Save your money and buy one of their first 3 releases. I'm not going to rate this cd because it's just sad.

From: edwithmj Date: March 26, 2010 at 23:57
Too alternative for my tastes I'm afraid. Listening to this makes me almost forget how good Warrant were on their first three albums which is certainly a bad thing indeed.

From: edwithmj Date: April 7, 2010 at 10:26
Oops I meant first TWO albums because Dog Eat Dog is so shite.

From: hair metal again Date: August 9, 2011 at 1:21
yeap this was a sellout and it shouldn t exist ,but the songs aren t so bad and i think overall that is enjoyable.give it a few spins and you ll find some hooks.of course i ve bought it and i havent regret it.i love WARRANT

From: steve72 Date: January 16, 2012 at 4:15
A bleak introspective offering from Warrant (Jani Lane) and i'd assume Jani was battling his demon's bigtime whilst these songs were in gestation. Admittedly not essential, it's worthwhile for tracks like Feels Good, Falling Down, All 4, U Coffee House & Room With A View. Once again it's a testament to the depth & scope of Jani's songwriting talent. If you're looking for the first 2 albums don't come knocking here...
