Cheesy riffs and guilty pleasures are one thing, like 80s L.A. Guns and Cinderella, but when a band is this cliche and this uninspired, you can see how Nirvana kicked-ass when there was a time when there were just too many of these types of bands cloging the blood-lines of radio/Muchmusic/MTV.
As usual there a couple good tracks on here, but the rest just sounds like it was made by robots peeling potatoes in the army backrooms, in other words, boring. Sorry.
Please don't call this a classic or them a hungry band, unless you afix the term "money" before it. This did not a pay-off by any means. As far as the scarce good songs, they turn in a great feel-good ballad in "Don't Walk Away" and great hooks in "Naughty Naughty", and "Under The Gun" is a rocker-ballad type, and whenever bands do these, and do them right, they sound great.
There's cheese, then there's grease. Guess what I found!? 3/11
So I turned my ears, having taken a battering from today's ... nu-metal, to my VAST 80's metal collection (Priest to Vinnie Vincent Invasion to Def Leppard to Slaughter), and I was soothed. One of the first I popped in was Danger Danger's debut album. I already liked the album, but comparing it to today's stuff, I appreciate the album even more.
The album is solid throughout. The lead track, "Naughty Naughty," is by far the album's best song, but that's saying a lot, considering that most of the material on this release could be on Danger Danger's "best of" album someday. "Naughty Naughty" is nicely followed by "Under the Gun," which has the same feel to it that the Top Gun soundtrack does (another recommended purchase). "Saturday Night" is probably the only track on here that just sounds more like Def Leppard to me than Danger Danger, and while that's NOT a bad thing, the song doesn't fit on this album.Read more ›
