|Warrant's turn to jump on the alternacrap/grunge bandwagon. Big mistake! Only a couple decent tunes here. Stylistically, very different from the feel good, party on hair band that we used to love. Saw them on tour recently, and they didn't play ANY of this stuff. I think Jani realized what made them popular, and it wasn't the much despised Seattle sound.

|The end has come. Warrant have officially fallen onto the complaint rock, alternacrap, piss-n-moan Bandwagon. Jani has turned into a joke. I used to love his songwriting, but now he's looking to the almighty $$$ and turned his back on the fans. Bullshit cd if I ever heard one. Not to mention that he totally went from bad to worse on the Belly to Belly cd. How do I give a negative rating on here?

|990f the criticism towards ultraphobic and belly to belly volume 1 is out of ignorance. anyone who likes warrant's ultraphobic should check out danger danger's dawn.
|Date: December 22, 2002 at 14:26
|how does this have a 7.95 rating??? I see this one in every used cd store I go to and they can never get rid if them. A 3.0 rating at the best for me. Put this and VH3 and D2 'dawn' and many more hard rock/alternative wanna be's into a fire and remove them from our memory.

|I must disagree with Mr. James' last post. Ultraphobic is a wonerous meld of alterna-hair featuring the best songs Jani has ever written. Granted 'Family Picnic' was a poor choice for 1st single, the rest of the cd rock with maturity and road weary wisdom. 'Chameleon' is as strong a pop-metal single and seen in the 90's. I for one admire Warrant for expanding beyond the white leather jump suits. Music has to grow people, and so do the bands. No growth equals ac/dc or bad KISS.

|I don't think Jani Lane has ever gained due credit as a songwriter. This album rips, and those who couldn't cope with the way the band and material was evolving are really missing something special. De-tuned guitars maybe, but this band had the strength to carry it off with aplomb. The title track is one of Jani's finest moments and Undertow and the insanely sampled Ride #2 are awesome. So Warrant fans, don't miss the boat. Perservere with this one and you'll be more than amply rewarded!

|Emdiehhh something. Ill give a try right away.
|From: Great Dane
|Date: January 8, 2003 at 20:45
|Hmmmmm. I might have to give another try. They used to eb unique in their sound. Thats NOT the case here. They sound like many other bands falling into the Grunge grave......I`ll give another try tomorrow.
|Date: January 22, 2003 at 23:11
|I'll admit that I wasn't too crazy about this when I first heard it. I do like it now. Lots of people complain that Warrant changed their style with this album, but actually their style changed withe the previous album DOG EAT DOG. The band couldn't top their first 2 albums when it came to 'Party rock', so it made sense for them to progress a bit. Listen to ULTRAPHOBIC with an open mind and you may just like it.
|Date: March 3, 2003 at 23:25
|I tell you what, if you listen to their first album and then their last album, it's night and day, but listening to all one after the other, it's a very natural progression. There's no big jump here from the last album or from here to belly to belly. I agree with Gar. It's all about growth.
|Date: March 6, 2003 at 22:17
|Great CD-At 1st listen a few years back, I thought it was ok, a little different. Now I think it ROCKS. Yes Warrant have grown since the DRFSR days and that's a good thing.
|Date: May 31, 2003 at 7:01
|Undertow, Sum of One, and Ride #2 rock! the rest aren't as good (still ok, but not as good)...Stronger Now is good too, but too mellow for my likes.
|Date: October 29, 2003 at 10:47
|I absolutely love this CD as,yes it has an alternative feel,but it never totally sold out with good solid hard rocking tunes! Lyrically Lane was on form & in many ways was mocking grunge by saying,yes you are all deep & meaningful but so can I be without being all depressing & suicidal!

|See what did i say?warrant sucks! Warrant really betrayed hard rock/metal music!wait a minute..they are not even hard rock/metal band.They are just some wannabe hard rock/metal band who turn grunge and alternative. I really feel sorry for all the warrant fans out there.

|cinderella fan is me but that doesn't change the fact that warrant still sucks. They killed hard rock and paved way for useless and crappy alternative and grunge band like nirvana,pearl jam and stone temple pilot to pollute their music onto the rock scene. They are the reason why hard rock/metal bands like cinderella,gun'n'roses,l.a guns.etc is not popular and 'requested anymore'.Glad grunge is long dead and i hope the same goes to warrant too.
|Date: May 21, 2004 at 6:01
|Jack- I'm sorry dude but claiming Warrant 'killed hard rock and paved way for useless and crappy alternative and grunge band like nirvana,pearl jam and stone temple pilot to pollute their music onto the rock scene' is insane. Music has always went in cycles. Hard rock and metal had ruled for several years and a different generation longed for a different style of music. It's happening right now with nu metal and even that is on it's way out. Claiming certain bands are to blame is ridiculous.
|Date: May 24, 2004 at 5:58
|I guess you are right,Dean! Anyway,warrant did fuelled the hard rock genre back in the days when it was dying even though jani lane said during an interview i heard he claim his band killed hard rock!

|I dug this out and played it the other day, and it's every bit as bad as I remember. 'Stronger Now' is a great acoustic ballad to close the album, and probably one of Lane's finest compositions. The rest is utter rubbish, and was the beginning of the end for the band. I was going to say that Jani Lane was the only one with any talent, but then I remembered what his 'Back Down to One' solo album sounds like...

|Funny thing is this was my first taste of Warrant (Being a kid I only started listening to the tunes about 1995) and to be honest it put me off buying any Warrant CDs for about 2 years afterwards. Eventually I tracked down the first three, loved them and gave this another chance. All truths about them obviously selling out aside, this is actually a very, very good modern hard rock album. Today I think it's a great solid album - just not what you'd expect from Warrant, but great songs.
|Date: December 1, 2004 at 20:22
|Absolute sellout drivel! They weren't the only ones but this one is a HUGH disappointment. Ask yourselves: Do we abandon the ones who made us rich to jump on the bandwagon, or do we take our time and make sure the tunes have complete quality? It's only obvious what these jamokes did.

|Grunge? Alternacrap? I don't think so, I write album reviews for Rock-n-Radio.com, I've just been sent this and I honestly don't think this is grunge. I'll have the whole review ready for the website soon.
|Date: February 16, 2005 at 16:27
|Propane, you are SO wrong! Ten years on and I still think Jani and the guys can be really proud of this one. It's every bit as vital today as it was then, and played loud it just oozes with class and depth. So give it a second chance. You'll find it well worth the effort!

|I DONT THINK SO! THIS ALBUM SHOULD NOT EVEN BE ON THIS SITE!
|From: Fat Freddy
|Date: February 25, 2006 at 8:07
|Geez, why is there so much hate for this album on this site? I think it's a pretty damn decent CD ('Family Picnic' included). I don't feel its a 'grunge' album either, anyone who classifies it as such obviously doesn't know much about grunge. What we've got on this album is a former party rock band who are trying to write songs for someone OTHER than sixteen year old girls for a change... and doing it rather well.

|I havent heard this album...is it really so bad? Stuff like Slik Toxik's irrelevant CD was a cross between hair and alternative, and those vocals 'pity me' approach really pissed me off as the 90's only heavy metal hopes changed style to suck Kurt's cock. Jani Lane was such a great rock n' roller, such a great rock n roll songwriter. Dog Eat Dog Rules!
|From: rick kerch vzla
|Date: December 20, 2006 at 22:13
|Actually Priest on E this is better than 'belly to belly' but when you listen to their early albums you feel the 'change' about musical direction on this one.However for the 'ULtrafans' of warrant this might be a good release for me is more of the same.They tried some grunge thing but failed on the try.
|Date: May 2, 2007 at 16:25
|not a great cd but not the worst cd its there, family picnic is a standout track on this but doesnt go much further. should have stuck to there style like slaughter and a few others that tuffed it out
|Date: March 26, 2010 at 23:54
|Decent hard rock but it doesn't fit with Jani Lane's voice in my opinion. It's like Dog Eat Dog but with the last trace of the original Warrant taken out. Sum of One is a truly ghastly song but Followed is excellent. The album is a mix of good tracks with awful ones. 75/100
|Date: June 24, 2010 at 20:23
|This is their best album hands down.The songwriting has matured adding a deeper feeling and meaning behind the great ripping music.A song like Family Picnic about child abuse is as poynient as it is rockin.There isn't a weak song except for ironically Stronger Now witch I'm not to crazy about but the rest are IMO the best all around album that Warrant has put out,and probably due to timing the lowest selling album as well.Highly recomended 9.5/10
|Date: August 22, 2010 at 7:53
|trick taylor your comment no growth equals ac/dc and kiss is ludricrous they are two of the greatest bands to grace the plannet yes they expanded here grunge? not quite otherwise i would hate it like i do belly to belly undertow,followed,sum of one,chameleon and stronger now are good songs not a great album by any means and i can understand why people hate it but i don't mind it it's listenable but to be honest i can't remember when i listened to it last

|Yeah guys...i gave this another spin and still have my same old thought about it (not so different than the comment i wrote back in 2006)..a drastic change of musical direction after 3 splendorous releases....the highlights of this "grungy" album could be "Undertow","Family Picnic","Ride #2"..these 3 ones are the songs of the album...then my "favorites" are "Chameleon","Ultraphobic" & the nice acoustic ending track "Stronger Now"...for real fans of the band you could either love it or hate it but obvioulsy you will be like...ummmm....80/100
|Date: September 3, 2011 at 9:10
|It's nice that I read these reviews to get the facts. I never bought (or downloaded) Ultraphobic or Belly to Belly.
|Date: January 16, 2012 at 4:05
|Irrespective of their previous albums & the chosen musical direction of this album the enduring strength of Jani's songwriting shines through making this album worthwhile... I don't think these songs would've worked with their previous framework. Followed, Family Picnic, Sum Of One, Chameleon, High & Stronger Now are mighty fine tunes... It was Warrant's first album post colombia/sony release... i'm sure they didn't have half the budget of previous albums. A name change might have been good at this stage.
|Date: September 29, 2016 at 18:28
|just can't believe some peoples here talk this way,((( all those supposed hard rocker,,LOL,,,First,this is a wonderful warrant album,one of the best,,,,just listenin the song stronger now and maybe some fool here will understand the dead of Jani,!!! this is not alternative or grunge album,,,this is just more mature,,,,Jani was tired to be the cherry pie boy's,!! so that's why he make this,,he just wanted to the peoples that he can write such good songs like stronger now,,chameleon,,,sum of one,,!!!! but like i see,,some can't understand this again,,,,so go listin some pretty boy floyd,,,,,Pathetic

|pretty good release for WARRANT back in 95 following the flow and altering their sound towards the grunge direction but without being exactly like it .as the hooks and the melodic lines still exist !ni s songwriting ability is their trademark and the performance is convincing!"chameleon","sum of one","undertow" and "ride #2 " are the highlights!always liked WARRANT
|Date: April 6, 2022 at 2:53
|Quick look through the comments and a lot of misinformed people are calling this album grunge. It certainly is hard rock, and yes there are Alice In Chains influences. But, AIC were just a hard rock band that happened to be from Seattle. They sound nothing like Nirvana or Mudhoney. This album reminds me of Facelift a lot, but it is far more melodic and poppy. I'd think in 1995 it should have been a mega-hit. But, hard rock fans seem to have become as fickle as "true metal" fans and won't allow any expression outside their self-determined genre boundaries. It's a pity, as they missed a good album here. Standout tracks are Family Picnic and Stronger Now. Grade A.

|I think part of the issue was that it was not as easy to even learn about new releases by bands like Warrant by 1995. They were definitely not being promoted by that point. I guess there would be a magazine like Metal Edge, and touring, but the rest would really be word of mouth. And a lot of the people who did do the work to keep up with bands like Warrant were the kind of people who only wanted to hear something that sounded like the first two albums, so they didn't like Ultraphobic. It was just a tough, tough time for these guys for the next few years.
|Date: June 8, 2023 at 18:22
|I like this album and thought it was a good follow-up to Dog Eat Dog (which is excellent). I like several songs on here and Jani was still being original, yet melodic and even heavy in some spots. I didn't really lose any faith in Warrant until...the next album. I liked this one just fine though.
