Heavy stuff

"This swan song studio album from DT was a very different affair.
Bass player Mike Watson had left and vocalist Jason McMaster took over his place. The song here are harder and more industrialized. That would propably be a bad thing for most fans, but I must admit that their songwriting is still up to par. This is a very good album, but perhaps not a DT album like you know them.
1. Share The Kill - Blew my mind first time I heard it. Very heavy, but man what killer song. Gets the blood pumping. Great.
2. Cure The Sane - Grungy. Great chorus and groovy riffing.
3. The Numb - In your face riffing. Heavy music. Melodic vocal. Good tune.
4. Take Me Swiftly - The repetitive vocal line makes this song so cool. The riff. Perfect.
5. Heard It All - A slow song. Great all the way through.
6. Transmission - Another slow one. This is one great song. The melody lines are so amazing. This one gets to the brain. A little lame lyrics though.
7. Words On The Wall - Aggresive metal song. Not bad, not my fav,
8. Better To Die - One of the best on the album. More like old school DT.
9. Down Inside - the weakest track on the album. Has that distinctive grunge moaning. And the chorus never takes of either.
10. New Anger - Starts of perfect. Aggresive and great. The problem comes with the chorus. It seems like they tried to do something unexpected with the chorus, and in my book they don't succeed. This could have been an amazing song. Seems unfinished.
11. Monster Man - Heaviest song ever. They are outsabbathing Black Sabbath. Great stuff.
12. To Live The Lie - The winner on the album. This epic-like rocker. You should get the album for this track alone.
13. Mom & Dad - A short little ditty. Muddy slide guitar with vocals sounding like its sung through a phone. Very cool.

Buy this only if you concider yourself open minded.
If you're into the other DT albums, this one will sound different but it's really equally good."

"Someone has kidnapped Dangerous Toys and replaced them with some industrial/grunge/techno band!!!!! Nothing like the good old stuff from Teas'n to Pissed. I was disappointed track after track. A total waste of money, BEWARE!"
Very Different, Very Cool

"This album is not at all what you are used to hearing from Dangerous Toys. But it's still a great album.I've always been a fan of 80s metal bands 90s alternative-styled efforts, more often than not the results are good. This here is no exception. Although I really miss the attitude and humourous lyrics of Dangerous Toys past albums, this not for nothing on it's own is a good listen as well. Toys mix the usual hooks of great 80s metal with some new instrumental sounds and some pretty strange lyrics to go along with them. 2 tracks that showcase this the most would be "Mom & Dad" and "Transmission", both good but hard to get into at first. They illustrate the best at how the band has done a 180 turn. There are standard rockers here, such as "Down Inside" my favourite on the CD, "The Numb" and "New Anger" but they all have a harder edge to them, and it really works well for themI do miss the atttitude and swagger, and the Texas boogie. That's all gone here but I own all thier other albums so can have my dose there. Spin this disc for something different. If you hate 80s bands for making alternative attempts, (which I don't think they are, I just see it as chaning with the times to great results) then you need to avoid this disc..But otherwise pick it up, give it a fair chance. Good work! 10/13"
