Twenty years on from the bands emergence and five years since Ted Poley was once again placed in charge of vocal duties, and we discover that Danger Danger's aptly title new release 'Revolve' is a return to the bands original sound albeit with a slight contemporary twist. In truth, this album could have been the natural successor to 1991 release 'Screw It.'
As soon as 'That's What I'm Talking About' kicks into gear you know that band are in high spirits and in the mood to party like its 1989! Fresh, vibrate and a great pace setter for the rest of the album, this track will have searching for your spandex in no time. 'Ghost of Love' is a personal favorite and has a slightly more intense and melodic sound, while 'Killin'Love'is a slow burner overflowing with emotion and adding an atmospheric sense to the disc. 'Hearts On The Highway', 'Keep On Keepin' On' and 'Dirty Minds' all continue to stoke up the party atmosphere, whilst I defy anyone to find a catchier chorus than the one attached to 'F U $'.
'Rocket To Your Heart' owns an ascending chorus that is built around a throbbing beat and some imaginative guitar work from Rob Marcello. And to give the album a degree of variation 'Beautiful Regret' has a modern sound that cranks things up slightly, replacing the party spirit with a serious slant. Whilst the two big ballads, 'Fugitive' and 'Never Give Up' are both worthy of chart success and would be best experienced in front of an arena sized crowd all grabbing for their lighters. This release proves that Danger Danger still have what it takes to deliver the goods and create a comeback album boasting 11 memorable songs. Marvelous stuff.
