EDITORS’ NOTES

Warrant singer/songwriter Jani Lane was never taken as seriously as he should’ve been. His abilities as a rock ’n’ roll songwriter who grew up on classic American AM radio were outshone by the band’s Hollywood glam-metal trappings. (Though without those trappings, Warrant might have toiled in obscurity.) This set highlights Warrant's hits and killer album cuts and shows why Lane deserves a closer listen. From the anti-slavery narrative of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” to the Cheap Trick lift of “Mr. Rainmaker” to the folky sadness of “I Saw Red” (heard all-acoustic here), it’s obvious that Lane had an empathetic way.

One of my Fave Bands!

Warrant is incredible! And this collection is all you'll ever need, and I have to say is a solid listen all the way through. First get this in your head, Warrant dows not make "unmemorable filler" as stated in the album review. In fact, I found myself enjoying DRFSR, and Bed of Roses a lot, and I highly recommend those along with Thin Disguise, Big Talk, 32 Pennies, and Machine Gun. Of course my favorites on the album are gonna be the memorable hits (Down Boys, Sometimes She Cries, Cherry Pie, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and my all time favorite: Heaven). Heaven in truly an amazing song ad deserved to be #1 not #2. Hurray for being 14 and crying when heaven came on at middle school graduation! So many good memories. The critics can go screw themselves, cause this is music of the people, and they obviously are above us people by saying such disparaging things about bands like Warrant (who are amazing). The only small complaint (Small) i have about this album is that bitter pill is missing, which might be my favorite Warrant song. But Nonetheless, a solid listen, from a solid band (5/5)

Jani Lane Gone Too Soon

Sad day for rock & roll. We lost a great artist, singer and songwriter. I will always love his music, it brings back great memories of the 80's.
