Funk Rawk
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 06/13/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bang Tango - a hair metal band whose 1989 debut Psycho Cafe straddled the line between Poison's pop sensibilities and the Faster Pussycat/L.A. Guns sleaze rock sound - refined their sound considerably for their second album, 1991's Dancin' on Coals. The musicianship, which wasn't shabby in the first place, is tighter, Joe Leste's vocals are less raspy, and the direction of the album has moved from straight-up hair metal to a much more funk-oriented rock sound.

The result is a stronger overall album, but one without any notable "hits". All of the songs are decent, but none really stand out the way Breaking Up a Heart of Stone or Someone Like You did on Psycho Café. Still, it's hard not to like the new, funkier Bang Tango. They pull this kind Red Hot Chili Peppers lite sound off a lot better than bands like the Electric Boys or Mindfunk managed to do.

Dancin' on Coals is a very solid, very enjoyable, funk rock meets hair metal album that should please fans of either style of music, and should thrill fans of BOTH styles of music.
Pretty cool funk metal

"Kinda like a cross between the funky metal guitar and bass of the Infectious Grooves or Chili Peppers minus the humor, with glam metal vocals (Axel, Faster Pussycat). The ballads aren't that great, but the rockers kick..... Personal faves - Cactus Juice and Dancin' On Coals."
Funk rock!

"I am a big fan of funk like Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and early Faith No More. I'm not into hair. But, I love this album. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because of a couple ballads. Most of album rocks. This album doesn't have much of the typical 80's hair production sound. Thank God! This is truely funk rock, not hair. The singer is the closest thing to hair, but he sings sharp, tight, and funky. As a drummer, I can tell you that the rhythm section is tight and funky. The guitarist smoothly goes from funk to hard rock to an impressive solo. Ah man, this stuff is good.I would recommend this album over their other album, Psycho cafe. The other album sounds much more like typical 80's hair. Especally the singer, he sounds more raunchy. It is a less funky album. Go for it! Get the funk out!"
