Pure summer party band. GET UP AND SHAKE and SUMMER DAYS are just great Danger Danger style songs from the first two D2 albums. It has it all plus the one great ballad you can play for your girl. I love this cd and I have not played this in several years. shame on me :axe:

Definitely a fun album. Haven't listened to it in quite a while either. Might have to pull it out.

Didnt James Christian produce it? ive heard get up and shake, and that one sad song, I think it's about death, just in a way to literal way, the song's sound good, it just seems like there is something about it, I can't put my finger on, like a dry spot, in the production, or the vocals, something just sounds a little off to me, but then again, WHAT THE FUCK DO I KNOW?????

This band put out an amazing debut cd the best 2000 album, maybe It was 1999.

What a shame they didn't made a second one, Really this is one of my all time favs glam/hair metal album.

I never get enough of this great songs.

I love Summer days,Story book and gone but not forgotten.

Maybe better that any D2 album (my fav is screw it).

This is one of my all-time faves. Every track is flawless. I absolutely LOVE this thing. They teased us with news that there was going to be a 2nd disc for so long (with new singer), but I've given up on that. F*cking excellent disc though.

Great CD if you're looking for that 80s hair-metal sound. "Lickity Split" is simply awesome--can't get enough of that chorus--and easily ranks among my all-time favorite songs. But while that track may be the best, all the others are pretty excellent too. Definitely one of those rare "no filler" albums.

Just to put the rumour to bed once and for all, there will not be a second album from these guys? Correct?

I seem to remember reading somewhere that this album was actually recorded in the late 80s, and was only released long after the band had split up.

good question

 

 

 

I dont think there'll be a second album even though the bands has more than enough material for album 2.

if I'm not mistaken Ryan over at metal mayhem has most if not all the songs attraction have recorded.

What's he doing with them?

 

And yeah, Cap'n Howdy, the songs were recorded a long time ago but I think the rumour a few years ago was that the band had mostly got back together, minus the lead singer, and they were planning to record again. Doesn't look like it ever happened, though.

 

Actually, in a similar story I was speaking, via email, to one of the guys from Blind Date, and he said there was also a chance they may release new material too. But that looks not to be a goer either. :(

I remember buying this on the description that it sounded like Danger Danger etc, but could never get excited about it. Couple of semi-decent songs, but overall just found it very weak.

Not a bad album, but just so mediocre. Even albums by the likes of Raquel had at least one stand out track brilliant, but this one just had "ok" tracks.

    • I think that's why I took to the track "Smoking" I suppose  its just a little dirtier in tone. All good tracks but you're right the new country vibe isn't for me...my wife loves it though...so every cloud n all that....but the other non country sounding tracks I love.
    • Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time. Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer.  Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFoundationFund.org). Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall. - via John Easterling, husband, Olivia Newton-John
    • Good stuff....missed it first time around.....
    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through
