Where is DANGER DANGER Already?

Recommended Posts

I don't agree with any of you. This band have made some awesome discs ("Screw It"/"Cockroach"/"4 The Hard Way") but they never topped the debut IMO. Pure 80's Melodic Rock heaven.

 

Tim you are wrong once again. :lol:

No he isnt. Debut is their best album....by quite a long way for me.

 

I mean nearly all the songs are classics......One Step From Paradise, Naughty Naughty, Bang Bang, Feels Like Love, Boys Will Be Boys and of course the totally awesome Under The Gun.

 

Dont get much better than that!

Never been a major Danger Danger fan to be honest. Good band for sure, but nothing except the debut really grabbed me too much, bar odd songs here and there. I'll leave now :gone:

as much as i love Screw It I thought it didn't flow all that great at times. I posted this before, maybe even started a thread about it but I would love to see D2 re-record the first album with Andy, pull back the keys a bit and up the guitar's.

 

That would be a monstrosity even worse than Ozzy re-recording his first few albums with new musicians! :o :o

 

The first album is perfect in every way. If anything I'd like to hear Tony redo Andy's two solos from the album.

don't get me wrong, I LOVE the first album but I saw them live on that tour also and they were even that much better live. the guitar had a stronger presence and gave the song's a bit more bite to them without taking away from the AOR side of things.

I've just heard all 11 track previews from the new album (as posted by Dan on the main site) and I have to say that I'm really really looking forward to geting this album. The songs are all very modern sounding, catchy, and they are certainly more in the melodic/AOR vein than I expected. Great stuff! Anyone who was hoping for a glam/sleaze effort will be disappointed.

I guess that's why we are discussing this in the Aor/hard rock forum and not the Sleaze forum.

 

I've heard a few samples and they sound a little better than solo Ted Poley tracks. Very clean and produced.

I would like DD to be a bit more 'spikey'!

Oh thanks for pointing that out. Very helpful.

One of my favorite bands so I was automatically getting this. Finally heard the samples and they don't disappoint. Nice mix of debut era D2, post debut, solo Ted and I can detect a nu breed riff or two as well in a coupla spots. Yup. Think I covered everything there with the world's most vague review.

 

Bottom line: can't wait for this to get released!

 

Anyone know any outlets with it available for preorder?

I've played some of this disc today and I have to say that the diehard Poley era D2 fans are gonna looooove this.

I'll definately be the lonewolf on this one.

 

IMO this album is weak. Wheres the BALLS? Its just another wimpy AOR Poley outing. Poley/Rivera had more balls, and Marcello/Vestry certainly had tons of riffage.

 

I dont mind my Hard Rock with AOR overtones but this is a bit much. I see this as a Poley solo CD and not a D2 album.

 

Looks like they held Marcello back. Thank God for Marcello/Vestry 2!!!

Having tried to listen to the whole album I nearly fell asleep with the boredom of it.

 

Their debut will always be their best for me.

I think all their albums are great. I even like the dawn album. The debut is better than screw it IMO. But the Crown jewel for me is Cockroach album with Paul laine on Vocals.

Me too, and I refuse to hear it until I have the original in my hands. :) Even if the anticipation is extreme.

 

The comment about it having no balls worries me as that was the most obvious indication the samples showed. I'm sure I'll still love the songs though.

Mate it definitely sounds more like 'Collateral Damage' than 'Cockroach, but hey who's complaining??

it does not sound anything like 'Collateral Damage' to me. I think it is pretty weak but I've just listen to it one time but was not impressed with the songs at all. Ted's voice is in fine shape but the songs sound like a bunch of throw aways to me.

    • From Frontiers: Stardust, a Hungarian melodic rock/AOR band, will release their much anticipated debut full-length on October 9, 2020. One of the hottest new AOR bands to come out of the underground European scene, Stardust's independently released self-titled debut EP stirred up quite a buzz in the underground melodic rock scene. The band were put to the attention of Frontiers' staff during one of the Frontiers Rock Festivals. Impressed with the band's melodic rock stylings on their debut EP, Frontiers moved swiftly to sign the band to the roster. Of the band's sound, vocalist Adam Stewart says, "We love Def Leppard, Winger, Journey and all the 80's stuff..So, we took those influences and mixed it in with our own 'Stardust' way of doing things. " Of notable mention is that none other than the mighty Mark Spiro (Bad English, House of Lords, Giant) and Swedish guitar hero Tommy Denander helped the guys with songwriting and production for their debut album. "One day I got a note from Mark Spiro! He wrote, 'Hey man, I found a good song that you would really love, what do you think?' I immediately listened to the song and it blew my mind! '2nd Hand Love' is a typical Spiro song with a magical atmosphere and a catchy chorus. I jumped right on it and made a new, modern kinda musical arrangement for the song. A riff centered verse, a bluesy chorus and a brand new intro part," explains Stewart of first single, '2nd Hand Love'. “Our first EP got really good feedback from the fans, not only from Hungary, but from around the world,” says Stewart. “I am certain that our debut album will be enjoyed by even more melodic rock fans thanks to our new cooperation with Frontiers. Stardust plays AOR/Melodic Rock with catchy melodies and lyrics, so Frontiers is truly a perfect home for us!" Founded by two friends, Adam Stewart (lead vocals) and Tim Keeley (drums) in 2015, the band is rounded out by Facey (lead guitar and vocals), Dave Legrand (keyboard), and Ben Martin (bass and vocals). The group's style is an amalgam of the classic melodic hard rock and AOR genres, with hooky choruses, beautiful keyboards, vocal harmonies, and loud guitars in the style of their favorite mid-80's bands, bringing to life this well beloved music in the 21st century. Stardust is the latest in a long line of amazing AOR/Melodic Rock signings for the label, so be sure to stay tuned as they are truly a rising star in the melodic rock scene. Line-up: Adam Stewart - Vocals, rhythm guitars Ben Martin - Bass Dave Legrand - Keyboards Facey - Guitars Tim Keeley - Drums   Tracklist: 1. Runaway 2. Heartbreaker 3. Bullet To My Heart 4. Perfect Obsession 5. 2nd Hand Love 6. Shout It Out 7. Can’t Stop Loving You 8. Eye To Eye 9. Hey Mother 10. Blue Jeans Eyes (Bonus Track) 11. The River Is Rollin’      
    • Black Swan - Shake The World Pretty Maids - Undress Your Madness Harem Scarem - Change The World Khymera - Master Of Illusions Russ Ballard - It's Good To Be Here The Outlaws - Dixie Highway Night Flight Orchestra - Aeromatic Robert Hart - Pure Five Finger Death Punch - F8 Gotthard - #13 Hollywood Monsters - Thriving On Chaos Richard Marx - Limitless
    • Why is it that I picture Cody walking around his neighborhood in a trench coat and gumboots? Speaking of pictures, did you not have your phone with you? You really dropped the ball on that one mate. The next time this occurs I expect full video footage accompanied by a "meet the cast" video extra.  Don't let us down again! You're better than that.  
    • I would've watched I would've asked to join the fun as well...
    • Of course you'd watch any anyone who says otherwise is being untruthful.  Out of curiosity, did you romanticise yourself as you watched? 
    • Agree about Nirvana (liking them, that is).
    • Always liked Nirvana even though most people on this forum blame them for the grunge wave.....also I don't mind occasionally listening to Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot....
    • I've always loved Nickleback and 3 Doors Down.
    • Never took to any of those bands, but didn't bag them. just didn't listen to them. I guess they are the older versions of Black Veil Brides and Five Finger Death Punch where there is some kind of movement against them for whatever reason. Too screamo, too modern. I'm not sure. Maybe others can comment of why they don't like them and what genre they are lumped in to. But I like them both. Another one might be Papa Roach. I never really did them, until recentlyand was reallty surprised at the catalogue.
