Have to admit to hating the heck outta Warrant the second I heard Cherry Pie. Thought the song was nothing more than a blatant rip off of Pour Some Sugar On Me (which in turn borrowed from Queen's We Will Rock You IMO). Granted I hadn't heard any of the then previous Warrant material so I was indeed one of those of the opinion based on Cherry Pie, Warrant was worth steering clear of! Still think that song is the perfect example of how horrid the genre could be about that time. And completely understood how that song affected a reflecting Jani during his reflecting later years (those youtube interviews are sad viewing).

BUT, and here's the thing, the second I heard Ultraphobic I was converted (with that album at least). The songmanship and creativity displayed on Ultraphobic was nothing short of stunning. Songs already mentioned above such as Stronger Now were certainly highlights, but Sum Of One and Chameleon were incredible, High was too as was Followed... And the performances so good could not praise enough Jani's vocals - the man was a talent!

I initially shied away from the more pomp orientated Dog Eat Dog but years later it revealed its glory. All My Bridges, Quicksand, Bonfire, Hole In My Wall... So much good stuff and appreciate better now the effect that 'One song' might have had on many potential fans come DED (such as was the case) :(

Anyways, aside from those albums and appreciating some of the earlier stuff a little more since, that's about it really. I've not heard the new stuff but rate Mason highly so should probably check things out!
