Danger Danger

The Return of The Gildersleeves

Review by Brian Angotti

The second installment of the Where Are They Now Files comes from Danger Danger. This band has released three albums with new vocalist Paul Laine. The Return of The Gildersleeves is a brilliant piece of work from a very underrated band. The album is a collection of melodic tracks and the usual ballads. The Return of The Great Glidersleeves could easily be compared to radio favorites like 3 Doors Down and Vertical Horizon, but with a heavier twist.

The album also features longtime guitarist and old bandmate Andy Timmons on a handful of the tracks. Paul Laine (vocals), Bruno Ravel (bass and guiatrs) also of side project Westworld, and Steve West (drums) are planning a tour right now, so check them out. For more information on the band and up to the minute news check out www.dangerdanger.com or to purchase the album.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: The Early Years Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Grind
"Grind" is a heavy guitar oriented song with melodic vocals.
When She's Good She's Good
This could easily be a radio hit with its catchy lyrics and music. This is my favorite track and definitely a strong song for the album.
Six Million Dollar Man
This cut is a very interesting track with samples surrounding the guitars.
She's Gone
"She's Gone" is a rocking power ballad. This track features awesome lyrics and the music is very groove flavored.
Dead Drunk & Wasted
Another heavier rocker with great guitar riffs, this one also includes melodic and fun vocals. The song is sure to have you singing right along.
Dead Dog
A very different style for Danger Danger, the music on this track is very powerful and pulls you right into the song.
I Do
At first listen, this track could resemble the music, but not the lyrics, to "Shot In The Dark" by Ozzy.
My Secret
"My Secret" has lyrics that take you back to the summertime when you were young. The music is acoustic and gives it a sentimental effect.
Cherry Cherry
This one comes complete with catchy lyrics and music straight off of the Kiss songbook.
Get In The Ring
Another radio friendly track, this has a heavy drum beat and awesome guitar solo.
Walk It Like Ya Talk It
What better way to close the album than with the heaviest track on the disc.
