Category Archives: Dangerous Music II
If you loved the first Dangerous Music album, this sequel doesn’t stray too far from that formula, which for most will be a good thing (don’t fix what ain’t broke!) George’s high pitched, melodic vocals and crunchy guitar work permeate these catchy, glossy pop/rock tunes, with songs like “Dangerous Music”, “Heart to Heart”, “Streetwise”, the Robert Plant sounding “Don’t Come Crying”, and the charming synth pop number “Machine” really standing out. “Ace in My Hand” really rocks hard, complete with George’s metallic riffs and blazing solos (he’s a vastly underrated guitarist), and the intoxicating “Red For Danger” is a can’t miss track, and no surprise that Robert Plant himself chose to cover it on his Sixty Six To Timbuktu album.
Thanks to Angel Air, this very fine album can now be enjoyed by everyone who has been waiting for its official release for a very long time.
Sea Of Tranquility (July 2015)
‘The American Way’ is a thumping Funk Rock Pop number, ‘No More Mister Nice Guy’ is classy, glistening electro-AOR with a great guitar solo and ‘Red For Danger’ is a busy piece of Soul-infused Pop…For Robin George fans this release is a simple ‘must have’…

Hearing this now, the fact that this album was never released seems particularly sad…because there are several songs that could easily have been huge hits. The track that seems like it would have been the perfect hit single is “Heart To Heart”…this one could’ve been huge. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, these tracks have a great big slick sound. Robin’s fans will certainly be pleased that this one has finally resurfaced.

Robin has a great pedigree playing with amongst others. Phil Lynott, Robert Plant, Roy Wood and Diamond Head. Dangerous Music 11 is clearly an Eighties production, I can imagine some of the tracks playing in scenes from Miami Vice, glossy synth pop overladen with Robins guitar work.

Listening to this now, the fact that this album was never released seems like a crime, this is the album that could have turned Robin into a household name, as there are several songs on here that could easily have been huge hits for him. Has this been worth the wait, if you are a Robin George fan, than absolutely? Go out and buy it, you will not be disappointed.

…demos as they are, these 17 tracks retain their potential even after almost three decades of shelf life.
DMME.net (March 2015)
As you would expect the musical template follows that of ‘Dangerous Music’ with Robin George taking the 80′s synth pop sound and successfully adding guitar crunch, along with his distinctive high end vocals…If you have a copy of ‘Dangerous Music’ in your collection then you need part 2 as well. Classy pop rock with lots of synths and enjoyable melodies. Often sequels don’t live up to the originals, luckily in this case that doesn’t apply. ****
