EDITORS’ NOTES

Warrant singer/songwriter Jani Lane got a bad rap. Truth is, he was a skilled songwriter, one who grew up on AM radio and the Midwestern pop traditions of Cheap Trick and Artful Dodger. Those influences show here, as shrouded as they are in Sunset Strip metal trappings. Both “Bed of Roses” and “I Saw Red” are sweet-tart gems. There’s even an anti-slavery narrative with a big pop hook (“Uncle Tom’s Cabin”), while “Song and Dance Man” is a rare moment of metal-pop self-mockery. This deluxe set collects rarities, including a dis to former Second Lady Tipper Gore and a pair of album-era demos.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Warrant is one of my favorites...the first three songs on this album rock, and the rest KA as well. Bed of Roses, I Saw Red, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and Cherry Pie are all on my favorite's lists!!

Awesome

This is a great album/song. If you think you want it, get it. You will not be dissapointed. Also, don't be thrown off by some of the other reviews that rate it 1 star. Just because that person blows at Guitar Hero does not mean the song itself is bad.
