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:

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.

I'm in the minority who prefers their second album. But this one ain't bad either. Doug Aldritch was epic.

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.

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

    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;  
    • Sounds worth checking out. I will seek. 
    • Yumsex. I still can't for the life of me understand why Steve West didn't play drums on the debut The Defiants album... kinda sad to see him and Bruno apart for what I am guessing might be the first time in their post D2 playing career? No, I lie. Westworld. But generally, the two have been together in everything and I was surprised when Mr West wasn't on The Defiants album. Good to hear he is home again.  And I agree - Eclipse and The Defiants is a nice start to 2019 for sure. 
    • Hmmm. There is a great song in there. But I also hear a bit of POL-ism that actually brings the song back a few pegs. If it was let to run free it'd be great... but yeah, just get rid of any POL influence please. Still, pretty cool tune. 
    • Yeah, I would agree with that as well.
