Album Review

Most glam/hair metal bands that ruled the scene during the late '80s opted to hide in the shadows for much of the '90s, after grunge made these groups an instant anomaly. But Danger Danger was one such band that didn't get the hint, as they remained together — in one configuration or another — through thick and thin. And in 1998, the group (which at that point, included original guitarist Bruno Ravel and drummer Steve West, but no Ted Poley) issued their fourth album overall, Four the Hard Way. The album (which was the second to feature Poley's replacement, Paul Laine) sonically sounds like it could have been issued ten years earlier, as it's chock-full of power ballads ("Captain Bring Me Down") and glam rockers ("Still Kickin'"), as well as song titles that sound as if they were plucked straight from Bret Michaels' notebook ("The Girl Ain't Built to Sleep Alone"). While the album didn't exactly do battle at the top of the mainstream rock charts with Creed or the Prodigy (two popular rock acts at the time), Four the Hard Way contained all the elements that you'd expect in a Danger Danger release — for better or for worse.

Customer Reviews


Very glad to see this appear in the store now. I've had the album on CD for a few years now and it's a huge step forward from the first two albums.

Paul Laine is a great singer and his time with the band created a ton of great songs, both here and on the subsequent Return of the Great Gildersleeves. It's modern melodic rock of a more mature sound, meeting the hair metal past. The production on the album is great.

Great album but...

We need D2's screw it on iTunes

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...
