"This is actually one of my favorite albums by a band a lot of people have never heard of. If you like late 80s, early 90s hair metal, you will love this album. The one song that stands out is the ballad "Since youve been gone". It sounds a lot like your basic 80s ballads, but very good nonetheless. Tangier never got the radio play or promotion which I think they deserved, but if you pick this up, I dont believe youll be sorry!"
Solid hard rock album

"Released in 1991, Stranded is the second (and final) album by hard rockers Tangier. Original vocalist Mike LeCompt is back on board for this album, which I tend to prefer over the band's debut Four Winds. You wouldn't know it by Tangier's bluesy, Southern-influenced rock & roll, but the band actually hails from New Jersey. Similar to bands like Baton Rouge and Tora Tora, Tangier has a bit more swagger than most hair metal bands from that era. It's nothing you haven't heard before, but if you're into late 80's to early 90's hard rock, chances are you'll enjoy this one.
NOTE: Wounded Bird reissued Stranded in 2008. Like all Wounded Bird reissues, it has not been digitally remastered, nor does it have any bonus material. It's great to see this forgotten album back in print, but if you already own the 1991 version there's no need to replace it."
Quality performance - a good hit in "Since You've Been Gone

"This band's music is nowhere near as heavy as that of the smashmouth Baton Rouge ... but I see what the other review is saying; this record is another attempt at southern hard rock .....
Used to have the cassette once upon a year ... This band another one of the 'unsung heroes', of a genre about to fade ... I REALLY dig this CD, even though it sounds alot like Cinderella in places (hence the assistance of Eric Brittingham) and I don't like the last song because it sounds like an Aerosmith song, with horns in the chorus and what not. Sounds just-heavy-enough, blasting in my car. The acoustic guitar work is really good"

"Excellent obscure southern rock. Tight solid band. Well worth purchasing as well as their first cd. If you like Hatchet you'll love these guys. Highly recommended."
