Though the album isn't sequenced in chronological order, it plays like an excellent mixtape, which actually makes the album more listenable. Even on a compilation, Poison wears a little thin -- there are still dull moments among these 18 songs, mainly in the form of lesser-known album tracks and singles -- but still, Greatest Hits 1986-1996 is the most enteraining album the band ever released.

    CeCe DeVille is the best guitarist ever

    I had to give an honest opinion on this album. I really love Poison, but only because they have the best guitarist of all time. CeCe's performances on Talk Dirty To Me and Unskinny Bop were truly astonishing. Brett Micheals really ruined CeCe's chances of creating a true masterpiece. If you enjoy great guitar riffs you will love this album. Sorry about the rest of the pathetic band.

    The best of ROCK in one stupendous album!

    Poison's collection of their greatest hits (and then some) is the ultimate album for having a good time, relaxing, or driving on the road wild and free! RIDE THE WIND.
