Where is DANGER DANGER Already?

Recommended Posts

I was sorting through some old emails last night and I happened upon a couple from Ted Poley. He and I conversed via email a few times when it was first announced he was back in Danger Danger. THAT WAS ALMOST 5 YEARS AGO!!!

 

Anyone have any REAL insight on what's going on and when we can (if ever) expect a new album from these guys? 2009 marks the band's 20th. anniversary... it only seems fitting something should get done THIS calendar year, no?

I've read on Melodicrock.com that they are hard at work and do expect to release some new stuff this year. Like you, I'm getting a little anxious to hear anything form them.

Yeah, I've heard the same too. That it should be out this year. I think I heard it was meant to be early this year too? I thought I'd heard somewhere it was almost completely done and they were just waiting for, was it Ted's vocals? I forget. I think there was one thing to be recorded and it was all done.

 

Dying to hear this one...

In that case, we should expect to see it spring 2010.

I don't expect much. I just expect it to f*cking crucify every single CD from 2009 and possibly the last decade.

 

Seriously, I'm expecting the best album of 2009... not one of them. :)

I would love to get my hopes up, but I wouldnt wanna be let down hard.

I find it always best to have low expectations, then anything even slightly good, will seem a lot better.

Expect a lot, and something that is only good rather than awesome, will not get its dues, as you will then be disapointed with it!

I just hope they stick to the formula and don't try to sound like the 10,000 other "modern" bands releasing "music" now-a-days.

 

I'm in need of some big hooks, tons of backing vocals, lots of whammy and guitars that are tuned UP rather than tuned down. I want sunshine and fun, not rain and dispair.

 

God I hope this one doesn't disappoint... I'm banking on Danger Danger to renew my faith!

I'm actually a little leery of Poley's return to the D2 fold. He hasn't done much that has impressed me since he left the band and I'm afraid he'll bring that decent-but-formulaic-and-uninspiring style to D2, who were knocking it out of the park when Laine was fronting them. That said, I am hopeful the reunion will bring out the best and we are given another melodic hard rock classic. The potential is there, but I'll keep my hopes reasonable until I hear reason to do otherwise.

I agree....not a huge Poley fan post D2 other than Bone Machine but I think it's due to lack of background vocals & production of cd's which should be no problem for D2. Lets hope...

I'm picking up what you guys are putting down. Although I LOVE his two solo albums, the production was clearly lacking, as it was on the Melodica CDs as well as obviously the Poley/Pichler disc. But even though Pleasure Dome was one of the weaker project post-D2 I actually thought he sounded really good with a great production behind him. And same with the Rivera project. Whilst it was very good, it was not amazing song-wise, but the beefier production suited him.

 

So, as I am 100% sure that the production job will not be an issue, and Bruno Ravel/Steve Brown are one of the most reliable song-writing pairs in the genre, I can only assume this is going to kick ass. :)

 

I hope. ;)

As much as I like the debut IMO Screw It was better and Cockroach is right there as well. :tumbsup:

All three albums are above 90% imo, but here's my thoughts:

1. Cockroach

2. Screw It

3. s/t

    • Make Love Like a Man - Def Leppard.   Released as a single from "Adrenalize". I've always hated it. Easily the worst DL song IMO.
    • Thanks mate. I don't know why I was having trouble finding it.
    • what a weird album.  The first 4 tracks are all great and exactly what I want to hear from TMF. then 2 gigantic fillers absolutely kills it imo.  the album in the second half loses momentum - 2 or 3 solid songs at best before a strong end in winner takes all. overall I think the Defiants is much better and teds last solo offering was awesome. I do like those first 4 tracks tho   
    • Seems like they stuck with the same gritty approach to production but it sounds a lot better than the debut. I'm digging this one!
    • I do like the song itself, but I would agree it's such a drastic change in pace that it disrupts the flow quite a bit.  I probably would have swapped that with 'Look Into Me' and placed it near the end of the album.
    • An evolution on the debut in the sound and production...more mature...more Defiants like😂 The title track sure crashes the momentum after the first four awesome tracks.     
    • Ok now that I have listened to it several times, this is my favourite song and it's a beauty. The last track on the album 'Last Train'. You get the vibe of Los Angeles and Sunset in one song. One of the best songs I have heard so far in 2020.    
    • It’s an anti “best of” list.  Songs that were big hits or band’s signature tracks that to be honest are not a favourite of yours...you can’t even add them to a “best of” mix on your phone or on a CDR...and some just down right suck!   Headed For A Heartbreak- Winger (so boring!) Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi (Dead please!) Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith (awful!)..Rag Doll was even worse Cherry Pie - Warrant (not a bad song but the majority of the rest of the album is way better) Mr. Roboto - Styx (I still can’t forgive Dennis for that mess) More Than Words- Extreme (I like the song but damn that was so not the Extreme sound in general...my dad thought it was the Everly Brothers) When The Children Cry - White Lion (I cry because I can’t take it anymore...too sappy) Pretty Fly For A White Guy - The Offspring (nice sell out boys) Enter Sandman - Metallica (It’s almost become a jingle and was so over played) Silent Lucidity- Queensryche (I saw them live and they ended the concert with this one...talk about not leaving the show on a high)
