"You can either love this album or hate it. Be warned though, this IS an alternative album, but it is excellent and puts a lot of the so-called alternative bands to shame. It's heavy, it's creative, it's ambitious, it's different, and it's very very underrated. The album rocks hard on "A.Y.M.", "Indian Giver," and "Vertigo," but also still finds room for an amazing ballad "Letter To a Friend." I won't lie to you, it will take some time to get used to this different side of the band, but it's well worth it."
WTF did they change direction for?

"When Warrant burst onto the scene back in the late 80's early 90's the released three of the best hard rock albums you could get (screw the criticism of Hair-Metal) and they produced not just hard rocking riffs and memorable chorus' but also great lyrics and excellent arrangement.
Being someone who does not like alternative rock.. Hearing this album is a major downfall for the band. They seemed to just dump the riffs, forget the fun tunes, don't bother making any of them rock, just do simple alternative stuff to depressing lyrics that I CAN relate to on some of the songs, but they just sit in a stale song that goes no where, I don't feel it, nor do I feel for it.
This is not the same Warrant I became a fan of. When a formula works, stick to it 'cause this alternative direction was a bad mistake. Only the die-hard Warrant fan or maybe someone who prefers this stuff to hard rock will like this album. There is a reason that sticks out a mile long as to why the tracks on this album are never seen on any greatest hits compilations, there's a bigger reason the songs from this album they played live on that Live album they released where later taken off of the tracks and re-released as just the original Warrant hits, and there is an even bigger reason then those previous for why this album is labelled "Vol 1" and they never released a "Vol 2"
Thsi was the last original album they did for over 10 years (and the next album Jani Lane had left the band), there next album was a collection of cover versions, and after that they went and did about 4 new songs and re-did there old hits... I think it's fair to say they should have stuck to what they where doing before this album and stopped trying to keep up with the times.
This album kinda reminded me of 3 bands I hate, Selloutica, Live & Nickelback. If you're a fan of those bands then you might like the s####y James Hetfield/Nickleback singer voice with alternative/grunge kind of music. Not all the music is rotten, but they are far from classic songs, I don't think I could ever recognise a song right away from the start, it wouldn't be till the chorus I could tell you what the song was.
I loved the LIVE from whatever to whatever album they put out, but the songs they forced onto it from this album they had on that one I skip all the time, I just cant get into them. I bought this album because Limewire couldn't even find more then 3 of the tracks from this and after hearing it all now I'm not surprised no one has it on there.
I'm even disappointed with the sleeve/booklet. The lyrics it has printed on it aren't all there, and I don't think any song actually has the proper lyrics on it, there's word changes, added bits, bits not there, spelling mistakes, typos & misprints.
This album might be ok for some, but it's far from anything memorable or classic from a group who used to right superb songs and showed they had super talent. None of that shines through even slightly on this one to me."
FINALLY Warrant has seen the light!!!

"What an album!!! That's all I can really say. Warrant completely dropped the cheesy 80's music they were putting out. The lyrics on Belly to Belly are 100x better than anything they've ever put out before. The music is darker, catchier, just plain better. I popped this CD on for a few friends and their reactions were the same.. song after song.. "damn.. this is a good song.. this is who?? WARRANT?? That cheesy band from the 80's??" Suddenly Warrant is not cheesy anymore. They get my respect, and with Ultraphobic, this makes two solid albums in a row. Finally."
