Angel Eazy - Lightning Strikes


Evil Rick

Recommended Posts

I am just listening to the Angel Eazy album "Lightning Strikes". This is some damn good stuff! It's a bit different, very light hearted but cool vibe and hooks. I don't see them listed on the main site and can't find any info on the band other than the cd was an idie released in 1991. Anyone know the story with this band? Is the cd fairly easy to track down? Thanks!

Had this CDR forever. To be honest, I couldn't tell you too much about the rest of the CD, but I think it was pretty cool. There is just one song I absolutely love on it. I can't for the life of me think of the name. But it pops up on my Ipod all the time and is one of my most heard songs. Just a simple song about the dude and his lady and their life together. Starting from meeting, asking her to marry him to which she says 'Hell yeah' I think, from memory and then after the solo (or is it before?) they have a kid. Either way, killer, killer song!!

Yeah I like this album too, but its quite a long album and the best songs are at the end. I though they were from the UK. And a lot of references list this as being a 1996 CD - it certainly sounds much older than that.

Then I'm in for a treat, I only got through the first five tracks so far and really liked those, so if it gets better toward the end that's a bonus!

So I searched for the song on my Ipod last night... couldn't find it. It must have ripped as 'unknown artist'. Looked on the back of the insert to try and figure out which song it was - didn't stick out. Like Justin says, it was somewhere towards the end of the disc.

 

Is it just me, but did anyone ever get a kind of Gin Blossoms/Goo Goo Dolls mixed with old-school hard rock feel from this disc? Or is that just me?

Ok, after getting about halfway through this I would have to say these guys to me sound like a mix of Kik Tracee and Shotgun Messiah with a bit of Kings X sprinkled in. This album kicks ass! And I'm not even through the whole thing yet.

Ok, this band/album haunts me! :lol: I had it playing again today and still think it's a fantastic album. When I first downloaded the album I got 8 tracks duplicated and renamed so everything sounded the same on the second half of the album and I couldn't figure out why. I then got all 16 tracks in the proper order. Here is the info I found:

1.Lightning Strikes

2.Turn Me Loose

3.I Hear A Voice

4.Stand By Me

5.Hang Tough

6.Unaware

7.Mexico

8.Remembrance Day

9.In Your Eyes

10.Turn On The Light

11.Tough Heart

I think I might have tracked down the drummer but I'm probably just bugging some poor guy who has no idea who Angel Eazy is/was. :anon:

 

I also found an obituary for a guy named Dave Denham who was in several bands during the late 80's/early 90's so I have to wonder if it might be this bands singer. Who knows. Just thought I would share. :D

Guys, which one is it, Shotgun Messiah or Gin Blossoms??? :unsure: If like Shotgun Messiah I am all over this one. :git:

That's a big negative on the Gin Blossoms comparisons. Not sure what Geoff was listening to but it definitely wasn't Angel Eazy. :lol: You will be getting mail soon Jeff...and Geoff.

Better late than never, but to solve this mystery, the artist I was thinking of is Crashing Angel and their self titled album from 2001. I have always got these two bands confused. To be honest, I rated both albums very low (57% and 51%) but the one I actually preferred was Crashing Angel.

    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
