I believe this is the PA version (although it doesn't state it on the cover). Includes the 12th track "Ode to Tipper Gore", which I think makes it the explicit version?

WARRANT'S "CHERRY PIE"...YUMMY!

"I personally like this album better than "Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich", even though I really like that album as well. The songs on "Cherry Pie" are a little more sophisticated. The overall effect of the album is a little more polished. Warrant stayed true to their original sound, which I admire very much. If you liked Warrant's first album you'll definitely want to add their second effort to your collection. I think it belongs in every collection really. It's definitely an example of "metal" at it's best; fun, rebellious, a little bit naughty. For the easily offended, purchase the copy that does not include "Ode to Tipper Gore", which is not actually a song but a vignette of profanities clipped from live performances. The guys in Warrant were clearly trying to make a point about censorship, but not everybody appreciated it. Whichever version of the album you choose, the SONGS deliver! As for other albums you may like if you like this band, well, starting in 1998 and moving forward into early this year there has been a phenomenal amount of activity within bands of this genre. I started cross referencing and came up with some great news! I am happy to report that Sebastian Bach (former Skid Row vocalist) has released his first solo album, and to date it is one I personally would rate as a five star album. Lizzy Borden's last release was 1995, Poison's and Quiet Riot's were 1996 so don't count them out yet. As for the rest...prepare to be surprised. The rest of these bands have new or re-released titles between 1998 and early 1999. AC/DC, Accept, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Bang Tango, Baton Rouge, Bon Jovi, Cinderella, Danger Danger, Dangerous Toys, Def Leppard, Dokken, FireHouse, Great White, Guns 'N Roses, Heavens Edge, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Kane Roberts, Kiss, Kix, L.A. Guns, Metallica, Motley Crue, Mr. Big, Ozzy Osbourne, Ratt, Saigon Kick, Scorpions, Slaughter, Sleeze Beez, Steelheart, Twisted Sister, Tyketto, Van Halen, Warrant and Whitesnake. So, to quote Quiet Riot, "Cum on Feel the Noize". (For those who are unfamiliar, that's how they spelled it on the album!) You can start right here with this album, Warrant's "Cherry Pie""
A solid album

"This album was my first listen at Warrant and I am impressed. They have some rocking tunes, including Uncle Tom's Cabin, Song and Dance Man, and You're the only hell your mama ever raised. I find myself wanting the rest of their CDs and I listen to this CD quite a bit. A must have for anthem / glam rock fans."

"A long time ago in a stadium far away, a band of longhaired beer - swilling journeymen traveled the byways as the lap-boys for the future hall of famers, "Poison." I was in my 20's at the time thinking that it didn't get any better then this. I knew this band would eventually be their own headliner (although I didn't think it would be in the local bar). Back then, a band would release an album and before they could hit the local stage they had would several radio hits under their belts, Warrant was no exception. Riding high from their first album, DRFSR, Warrant exploded, (yes they were huge) back with the release of single #1 from album two: "Cherry Pie." Oh yea, a song about hot women and backing it up, a video with the hottest, Bobbie Brown. Breaking the mold of releasing a hard-song, ballad, mild-song, they went straight to the jugular with "Uncle Tom's Cabin" as release #2, easily one of the greatest hard-rock crossovers to the female audience there ever was. Everyone loved this song, but that was no surprise. "I Saw Red" was a mildly successful third release but still a great song. Sadly, Warrant released their next album amid rumors of in-fighting and drug use, it never achieved the airplay or success of the first two releases..."
