Native Tongue (1993)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Lead Performance: Poison; Genre: Metal

This band is gonna be sore. Here Poison has recruited a gritty new lead guitarist, recorded a solid album full of grown-up lyrics, and generally moved their old pop-metal sound miles closer to ol'-fashioned, blues-based rock & roll. And what do they get for it? Well, there's nothing on Native Tongue that somebody else hasn't done a million times before, so their grade can't be more than... C+
