Warrant 96 – Belly to Belly – Volume One (1996)

Warrant_Belly1.5 out of 5 Stars!

Though I give Warrant (or on this release, Warrant 96) a lot of credit for branching out and experimenting with different sounds and arrangements, this hodgepodge of various styles just doesn’t gel.

There are some decent tracks tossed into the mess, but skipping from one track to another to locate them is just too time consuming.

Additionally, the strange filters and sound effects continually applied to the vocals become silly and annoying. It might not have been too bad had it been done on a single track, for experimentation sake, but there are way too many tracks destroyed by this nonsense.

I was never a huge fan of Warrant to begin with, but this release basically put the final nail in the Warrant coffin for me.
