Forgotten Hard Rock Albums: Lion - "Dangerous Attraction"

Recommended Posts

On the way back machine this installment of forgotten hard rock CDs.

I bought this the day it came out in 1987 and I was exploding into a full on hard rock junkie. 

This one blasted through me with power and precision and remains one of my all-time favorite and memorable releases.

Here are some of my favorites:

Power Love is a bloody perfect song period. Simply stunning. In The Name of Love also crushes, hell I enjoy the entire disc. ;)

I am glad I was afforded the opportunity to nab all 3 Lion CD's about 15 years ago.

The original version of Power Love is just as good as the second variant.

Here is the original version someone tried to sync up over the official vidja.

Nice choice.  I bought this on cassette back in '88  after hearing the song Power Love and wore that tape out over the years.  I wish someone would reissue this on cd.

Yep. From melodicrock.com:

20TH CENTURY MUSIC DELIVERS A TRIO OF REISSUES AND RARITIES IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

DRIVE'S 'IDEFI', ALISTAIR TERRY'S 'YONGE AT HEART' AND LION'S 'DANGEROUS ATTRACTION' ALL SEE LIMITED RELEASE

New German / American reissue label 20th Century Music is set to release three long lost and out of print titles to make anyone's upcoming holiday season better than expected.  

December 8th sees IDEFI, the material that should have made up Houston based progressive metallers DRIVE's third album, finally hit the streets in a proper release.  Working very closely with the band members and their families, IDEFI is not a reissue, rather, a celebration of singer David Earl Taylor and founder member / guitarist Rick Chavez, lives.  The album features a huge 24 page booklet, liner notes from Chris Leibundgut, heartfelt tributes to both Chavez and Taylor and the first 100 orders will also include a Rick Chavez guitar pick replica. The album is limited to 500 copies.

On December 15th, both ALISTAIR TERRY's Yonge at Heart and LION's Dangerous Attraction will be rolled out.  TERRY's Yonge at Heart (a reference to his favourite street in Toronto, Yonge Street) is a power pop / melodic rock slice of heaven and was recorded after the Pet Hate frontman's former band had called it a day.  The album features a deluxe 16 page booklet, lyrics, liner notes written by Rob Lane and is limited to 500 copies.  LION's highly sought after Dangerous Attraction is considered a hard rock masterpiece of the highest order by many fans of the genre.  The album, the band's first full length, was originally issued by Scotti Bros in 1987 and featured a reworking of their independent hit "Powerlove."  The remastered reissue also includes the "Transformers" theme song as well as a 16 page booklet, extensive liner notes detailing the band's history written by Chris Leibundgut and is limited to 500 copies.  

All three albums can be pre-ordered now from vanitymusicgroup.com/store

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
