The followup album has Terry Bozzio taking over the drumming. It features exceptional synth work by Eddie Jobson and bass and vocals from John Wetton. ~ Paul Kohler
Son Seals 1991 Alligator release "Living In The Danger Zone" is arguably one of Seal's finest studio releases to date. His best live performances being "Live and Burning" and "Spontaneous Combustion". Like the live disc's, Danger Zone features and abundance of gritty vocals and piercing guitar solo's in the style of Albert King. The songs on the disc range from the humorous "Frigidaire Woman" to the slow blues number "Danger Zone" to the funky "Bad Axe" to a ballad like "My Life". Seal's is a natural for the blues. He was born in Osceola Arkansas and, as a child, spent much of his time in his dad's juke joint surrounded by the likes of Albert King, Sonny Boy Williamson and Robert Nighthawk. About four years after recording this CD his wife shot him in the face. He would survive that trauma only to later have his leg amputated due to complications from diabetes. As the saying goes, you got to live the blues to play the blues.
"Revolve", Danger Danger's seventh studio album, marks the return of lead vocalist Ted Poley. It is also the first Danger Danger studio album to feature Rob Marcello on guitar. It works great for the band. There is nothing unexpected here – which in this case is good, just more classic Danger Danger material. The added production bells and whistles brings the band up to date, but at the heart of the album is classic D2 – albeit perhaps a little more laid back than 20 years ago.
"Live and Nude" is the official live album by American melodic rock/glam metal band "Danger Danger" originally released in 2005. "Live and Nude" was actually recorded in London-England at the Underworld club during the band's 2003 European tour. The line up featured founders bassist Bruno Ravel and drummer Steve West along with established vocalist Paul Laine and newcomer Swedish guitarist Rob Marcello. "Live and Nude" is easily one the top melodic rock live albums of the previous decade, as "Danger Danger" perform at a level few would have thought possible. Paul's vocals are impeccable-lacking nowhere in comparison to the studio versions; the man's voice bares such depth, clarity and attack reinforcing his reputation as one of the best singers in the genre.
"Rare Cuts is a Danger Danger compilation album, released in 2003. Rare Cuts is a long awaited compilation of outtakes and original demos submitted by the band for their self titled debut album – or in other words, the demos that got them the deal with Sony Music. Considering the age of the tracks and their demo status, they sound surprisingly fresh. It's fun to hear tracks like Bang Bang and Feels Like Love in their original form, not to mention a few rare tracks like the party anthem Loving' A Girl Like You, the uptempo Hold On Maria, and the big moody ballad Temptation (covered by Y&T).
"Cockroach" is a Danger Danger album released in 2001 as a 2 CD set. One CD features singer Ted Poley and the other CD features singer Paul Laine. The album was recorded in 1993 while Ted Poley was still the lead singer of the band. Shortly after finishing it, Poley left the band and Paul Laine was hired as its new singer; he re-recorded the vocals in 1994. However, Poley sued the band and the label prohibiting its release. Epic decided to shelve it and the band went on with their career. The album was also the first to be recorded after Danger Danger parted ways with keyboardist Kasey Smith. This album is a must for anyone who enjoyed the band's first two albums as well as fans of Ted's new band, Melodica.
Remastered 2003 reissue of Danger Danger's sophomore recording. Features the guitar pyrotechnics of underrated virtuoso Andy Timmons. Includes the hit "Monkey Business"; other highlights include "Beat The Bullet", "Crazy Nites", and "Don't Blame It On Love". Also included is a previously unreleased track recorded during the original sessions for Screw It!, plus a second disc with the hard-to-find Down And Dirty Live! EP.
"Four the Hard Way" is the fourth Danger Danger album, and the second featuring singer Paul Laine. Former members Andy Timmons and Kasey Smith contributed to the album. D2 are back on track! This may not be an instant classic like the first two albums, but… "Jaded" (a great example of the new sound), "Captain Bring Me Down" (Bon Jovi-style), "Going All The Way", "Goin' Goin' Gone" (both classic D2) and the Def Leppard-style "Afraid Of Love". Eleven tracks of pure hard rock heaven …great lyrics, great hooks, 100% perfect.
"Dawn" is the third Danger Danger album to feature Bruno Ravel on guitar as well as bass. It is the third Danger Danger album in order of release, though it isn't the third to be recorded. On this album, the band went in a very different direction musically, lyrically, and image wise from its previous albums. It can loosely be compared to Warrant's Ultraphobic, which was also released in 1995. First release to feature new vocalist Paul Laine.
