As three fifths of New Edition, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoe delivered popping fresh odes to first time love and the girl next door. But manhood can be a bitch and as BBD, the threesome bypassed innocence and went straight to the groin of the matter. Combining hip-hop beats and R&B moves, Poison remains one of the better CDs of the New Jack swing era, despite its often unrelenting misogyny. "Sure, me and the crew used to do her" ain't no way to call your lover girl, but it takes some kinda skills to make a CD that is both sexist and sexy. Poison is that CD. --Amy Linden

"this has NOTHING to do with new edition or BBD or whatever they have written there! these guys are from Champaign/Urbana, IL - home also to the Poster Children, Hum, Braid, etc etc.. this album features Bob Rising (one of the great drummers who's also played on albums by the Poster Children, Seam, and Lustre King - now playing with the Tight Phantomz (on Southern.)) I'm sure Geffen had no idea how to market these guys and now this record sits in discount used cheap bins in record stores across the world. That is sad, as this has some very great moments on this album. Plus you can't go wrong with Bob Rising playing drums on your record. This is definitely for fans of the above mentioned bands, especially Poster Children and Hum."
