Warrant ultraphobic full album


Ultraphobic is the fourth studio album by American rock band Warrant. Released on March 7, 1995 on CMC International, after the apparent break-up of the band, the record was regarded as the band's "comeback" album. It features former Kingdom Come and Wild Horses members Rick Steier and James Kottak who came in to replace original band members Joey Allen and Steven Sweet.

Musical style

Ultraphobic saw Warrant acknowledging the Grunge phenomenon with a record that openly admitted to a Seattle influence, although was still a natural regression from the hard edged Dog Eat Dog. It is vaguely similar to Danger Danger's Dawn, which was also released in 1995. In particular, the record represented an experimentation with the grunge sounds which had by this time become popular, and which, ironically, had contributed to the band's commercial demise. In songs such as "Undertow" and "Followed" the band attempted to mix pop metal sounds with the alternative stylings of Seattle bands such as Alice in Chains and Soundgarden.

Production and marketing

Warrant began recording Ultraphobic in November 1994 with producer Beau Hill. The band supported the release of the record with a national tour beginning in Dallas, Texas.

A music video was made for the first single "Family Picnic" with a strong message against family violence and for the second single "Stronger Now", which Jani Lane refers to as the best song he has ever written. "Followed" was released as the third single of the album.

Lyrics

Lyrically, the album appears to have been heavily influenced by the painful divorce which vocalist Jani Lane endured during the record's production.
