DANGER is a new glam act from Sweden that borrows the image and sound from the height of Los Angeles 80s scene. Like their fellow Scandinavian friends, WIG WAM, RECKLESS LOVE, or CRAZY LIXX, the essence of their playing relies heavily on the melodic riffs, thumping bass, and soaring vocal which is the portrait of the classic bands like MOTLEY CRUE or RATT.

The first track, 'D.C.A. Hollywood', is a kickin' ass opener. Lush with beautiful melodies, this song was packed with an intense sing-along chorus and killer solos. What an amazing song and the next two tracks are huge, too. 'Body To Body' pushed forward with a fantastic rhythm and 'Down With The Devil' is like a lost RATT hit.

After 'California Red', the mid-album cools down a bit and DANGER slowed down the tempo, playing a safe passage until 'Rockstar' pumped the adrenaline high again. Frankly, I prefer them to keep maintaining the fast-paced tracks like 'Hollywood' or 'Devil' and no need to play ballad even though it doesn't hurt to create song like 'Never Say Goodbye' once in a while.

'On The Edge' kicked back again with a classic RATT feel and 'The Hollow Core' brought out their best and I think this is the best track on the second half. Production wise, this album is good while I still see rooms for improvement on the rhythm section and vocal part.

All in all, DANGER's debut is a nice addition to the glam collectors and I have confidence they're able to push their boundaries on the second release.
