Poison is an American glam metal band that achieved great commercial success in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. Poison has sold over 45 million records worldwide and have sold 15 million records in the United States alone.The band has also charted ten singles to the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including six Top 10 singles and the Hot 100 number-one, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn".The band became icons of the 1980s MTV era and have had widespread commercial success. The band's breakthrough debut album, the multi-platinum Look What the Cat Dragged In, was released in 1986 and they hit their peak with the second album, Open Up and Say... Ahh!, which became the band's most successful album, being certified 5x platinum in the US. The popularity continued into the new decade with their third consecutive multi-platinum selling album, Flesh & Blood.In the 1990s following the release of the band's first live album, Swallow This Live, the band experienced some line up changes and the fall of Pop Metal with the grunge movement, but despite a drop in popularity the band's fourth studio album, Native Tongue, still achieved Gold status and the band's first compilation album, Poison's Greatest Hits: 1986–1996, went double platinum.In the 2000s, with the original line up back together, the band found new popularity after a successful greatest hits reunion tour in 1999. The band began the new decade with the release of the long awaited Crack a Smile... and More!, followed by the Power to the People album. The band toured almost every year to sold out stadiums and arenas. They released a brand new album,hollyweird, in 2002 and in 2006 the band celebrated their 20 year anniversary with The Best of Poison: 20 Years of Rock tour and album, which was certified Gold and marked Poison's return to the Billboard top 20 charts for the first time since 1993. Band members have released several solo albums and starred in successful reality TV shows. After 25 years, the band is still recording music and performing.Since their debut in 1986, they have released seven studio albums, four live albums, five compilation albums, and have issued 28 singles to radio.On March 1, Poison announced a 2011 Summer tour with Mötley Crüe and New York Dolls to celebrate Poison's 25th anniversary and Mötley Crüe's 30th Anniversary named the Glam-A-Geddon.Also for Poison's 25th Anniversary, 35 of the multi-platinum band's top hits and fan favorites have been gathered for "Poison - Double Dose: Ultimate Hits", a new career-spanning 2CD and digital collection to be released May 3, 2011 by Capitol/EMI.In 2012 Poison will once again tour with Def Leppard for the Rock of Ages Tour & joining them will be Lita Ford. Bret Michaels will also continue his "Get Your Rock On" solo tour (named after his latest single) to promote his newest upcoming solo album. "Jammin' with Friends" was released June 25, 2013 and charted at #13 on the Top Hard Rock Albums, #23 on the Top Independent Albums, #29 on the Top Rock Albums and #80 on The Billboard 200.
Universal Music Japan has started this year a curious but more than welcomed campaign: the reissue of long time out of print albums from their catalog titled 'HR/HM 1000', that meaning Hard Rock / Heavy Metal at the price of 1000 Yen = about 9,5 USD.And it's curious because these series focus on the 'commercially less successful' albums from each band, which, anyway, were long time out of print.In the case of POISON's "Native Tongue", the album was quite successful achieving gold status, but of course not platinum as their previous hit makers. However, "Native Tongue" must be Poison's most creative effort, including in their ranks talented guitarist Richie Kotzen.Kotzen was hired as the band's guitarist following the firing of C.C. DeVille in late 1991. Admitted as a full-fledged member rather than a "hired gun", Kotzen was given considerable creative freedom.Resultingly, Kotzen's writing and performing contributions dominated the album, hence, its quality.By 1992, with the ever so depressing grunge rock being so popular, our beloved ’80s bands had to reinvent themselves. Maybe make more serious music. It really made these bands into better musicians. It showed their versatility.With Kotzen in the fold, Poison became a bluesier rocking version of themselves. The songs were more diverse with great changes and depth.After the title track intro, as the band goes into “The Scream” it’s obvious right from the start of the album that this is truly a different band. Producer Richie Zito has done a great job of capturing a great drum sound. To me on this album Rikki Rockett really started to shine. In the past he was more of a show drummer, but on Native Tongue he really shows his ability.The album’s first single “Stand” is the more commercial tune on the CD, with great guitars, fine vocals and a full choir in the background.“Stay Alive” is a great rocker, has such a cool vibe, driven by Kotzen’s superb guitar riff. The laid back feel of the song allows Michaels‘ vocals, mixed with Kotzen‘s great harmony vocal parts to be heard perfectly. The vocal in the mid section have a classic Aerosmith type feel.“Until You Suffer Some (Fire & Ice)” is a really good slow bluesy rock ballad of sorts. What I love about this song is Kotzen’s harmonies that are heard throughout. The mixture of the two vocals really adds to the song. The chemistry of the two is undeniable.“Body Talk” keeps this train moving. Kotzen starts with a dirty riff that Dall plays off of on the bass, which leads into Michaels smooth vocal approach. Michaels really evolved on this album. There were moments on Flesh & Blood where you could hear him getting slightly bluesier. On this one, he changes his style to fit the song.“Bring It Home” is one of my favorite tracks on this album. I absolutely love the vocal approach in the verse with Micheals owning the part with the band stopping and starting. Where this song really shines is Kotzen singing the chorus and Michaels singing “Bring It Home” back to him. A dynamic of Poison that has never been seen again.“7 Days Over You” has an infectious chorus, “Richie’s Acoustic Thang” is a slight interlude that leads into another great track, “Ain’t That The Truth” a grooving rocker where the swagger that Michaels imprints really gives the song a great flavor.“Strike Up The Band” is another fantastic bluesy hard rocker. This is Poison in 1993. It’s still an anthem, but in a different, mature manner."Native Tongue" is mature Poison, and a really good bluesy hard rocking album with melody. At the time, Kotzen was probably exactly what Poison was seeking as they had gradually moved away from their glam metal beginnings and sought to be more musically accepted.This reissue is not remastered, but this Japanese 2018 release sounds fantastic. It may be the new digital transfer technique - which augment the signal / Dynamic Range - so having this for less than ten bucks is a great deal.
