I like Danger Danger, but their first two albums (the only I’ve yet to hear) are odd to me in that they are a bit too melodic and “light” to really be a part of the pop-metal scene, yet their lyrics would sometimes suggest otherwise (like the not so subtle but awesome “Slipped Her The Big One”). It’s like they wanted to go all out being a sleazy hair band, but they were just too melodic and AOR-ish to really get that dirty for a whole album.

Not that it’s a bad thing, I like Danger Danger for what they are: a slick melodic rock band that is a bit of a guilty pleasure. If you don’t get caught up in the unapologetic “Slipped Her The Big One” or the Journey-like good time rocker “Crazy Nites” you just don’t know how to have fun!

“Yeah, You Want It!” is a really puzzling rap-rock song about hair bands. I can only surmise the music itself was some type of parody of the Beastie Boys, right down to the Brooklyn accents.

Overall, the album is just as enjoyable as their debut.

Highlights: “Ginger Snaps (Intro)/Monkey Business”, “Slipped Her The Big One”, “C’est Loupé (Prelude)/Beat The Bullet”, “I Still Think About You”, “Crazy Nites”, “Comin’ Home”

  1. They just released a new cd called Revolve. It does not have the same tounge in cheek innuendoes that the first 2 cd’s have, but it is still a solid cd. Also it is good to have Poley back in the band.
