Album Review

For a spell during the late '80s and early '90s, it seemed like almost every day there was a new hair metal band popping up on MTV, taking aim at joining the likes of Poison, Mötley Crüe, and Bon Jovi at the top of the mountain. Some (Skid Row, Winger, Slaughter, etc.) did manage to challenge the aforementioned groups, while bands like Danger Danger came oh so close before vanishing from view completely. Danger Danger enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame with their self-titled 1989 debut, which merged built-for-mainstream-radio hooks with pinup-boy good looks — a formula that seemed like a can't-miss proposition during this aforementioned era. Included is the group's best-known track, the album-opening anthem "Naughty Naughty," as well as the similarly styled "Bang Bang" (what is it with this group and repeating words?), the Bon Jovi carbon copy "Under the Gun," and, of course, an obligatory power ballad, "One Step from Paradise." It seemed like all the pieces were in place for Danger Danger to break on through with their debut album — but an oncoming shift in rock music tastes would soon send these party-hearty lads packing.

Customer Reviews

Where did they go?

Not a bad debut album for it's time. I originally bought this on cassette when "Bang, Bang" became a hit and was impressed with the song writing on the rest of the album. Although it had a lot of pop sound, and the singer sounded like mid 80's Colin James, the songs were written very well. If they would've dropped the keyboard and replaced it with an edgier guitar driven sound, this band could've went a lot further in their career. Instead, as the title of the review asks.. Where did they go? If I had to compare them to another group, I'ld say imagine XYZ with a touch of Enuff Z' Nuff.

Just like any musical movement, when such glam metal pretty boys as Poison and Ratt hit the big time in the late '80s, numerous copycat acts followed in their path; one being Danger Danger. Like the aforementioned bands, the quintet — Ted Poley (vocals), Andy Timmons (guitar), Bruno Ravel (bass), Steve West (drums), and Kasey Smith (keyboards) — mixed pop hooks and good looks with hard-edged guitar riffs, landing a deal with Epic in 1989. The same year saw the release of the group's self-titled...
