Given the bands continued success and impact on the Rock music scene this was a good idea, however the album itself might strike some of the bands hard core supporters as very familiar and here is why. Broken into two discs, the first CD is the “Greatest Hits” compilation and was originally released as “20 Years Of Rock: The Best Of Poison” while the second CD is the single CD remastered version of the bands 1991 live recording “Swallow This Live”. I reviewed the original best of piece and slightly edited my copy to be a little more with the times but since I only owned the remaster of the live release only recently those will be relatively new thoughts.
