"Cockroach" is a Danger Danger album released in 2001 as a 2 CD set. One CD features singer Ted Poley and the other CD features singer Paul Laine. The album was recorded in 1993 while Ted Poley was still the lead singer of the band. Shortly after finishing it, Poley left the band and Paul Laine was hired as its new singer; he re-recorded the vocals in 1994. However, Poley sued the band and the label prohibiting its release. Epic decided to shelve it and the band went on with their career. The album was also the first to be recorded after Danger Danger parted ways with keyboardist Kasey Smith. This album is a must for anyone who enjoyed the band's first two albums as well as fans of Ted's new band, Melodica.
"Revolve", Danger Danger's seventh studio album, marks the return of lead vocalist Ted Poley. It is also the first Danger Danger studio album to feature Rob Marcello on guitar. It works great for the band. There is nothing unexpected here – which in this case is good, just more classic Danger Danger material. The added production bells and whistles brings the band up to date, but at the heart of the album is classic D2 – albeit perhaps a little more laid back than 20 years ago.
Danger Danger is the debut album of the band Danger Danger, released in June 1989. In 1989, Saraya guitarist Tony "Bruno" Rey joined briefly and played on part of their debut album, before returning to his previous band. Andy Timmons replaced him and played on the rest of their debut album, which was released in the same year. The album spawned two hits with “Naughty Naughty” and “Bang Bang,” with the former gaining a spot in MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball.
"Rare Cuts is a Danger Danger compilation album, released in 2003. Rare Cuts is a long awaited compilation of outtakes and original demos submitted by the band for their self titled debut album – or in other words, the demos that got them the deal with Sony Music. Considering the age of the tracks and their demo status, they sound surprisingly fresh. It's fun to hear tracks like Bang Bang and Feels Like Love in their original form, not to mention a few rare tracks like the party anthem Loving' A Girl Like You, the uptempo Hold On Maria, and the big moody ballad Temptation (covered by Y&T).
"Four the Hard Way" is the fourth Danger Danger album, and the second featuring singer Paul Laine. Former members Andy Timmons and Kasey Smith contributed to the album. D2 are back on track! This may not be an instant classic like the first two albums, but… "Jaded" (a great example of the new sound), "Captain Bring Me Down" (Bon Jovi-style), "Going All The Way", "Goin' Goin' Gone" (both classic D2) and the Def Leppard-style "Afraid Of Love". Eleven tracks of pure hard rock heaven …great lyrics, great hooks, 100% perfect.
"Dawn" is the third Danger Danger album to feature Bruno Ravel on guitar as well as bass. It is the third Danger Danger album in order of release, though it isn't the third to be recorded. On this album, the band went in a very different direction musically, lyrically, and image wise from its previous albums. It can loosely be compared to Warrant's Ultraphobic, which was also released in 1995. First release to feature new vocalist Paul Laine.
If "Four The Hard Way" was D2's come back album to the melodic hard rock scene, "The Return Of The Great Gildersleeves" should damn well prove that they are here to stay! The band has again successfully combined modern rock influences with the classic Danger Danger sound, and added a couple of neat twists in there as well.
