Back in my college days in the early 90s, I had D2's self-titled, and Screw It CDs and thought they were pretty great. Since those days, I had gotten away from listening to hard rock much. Just lately I've had the itch to start listening to some of those bands again, and one of the albums I tried is "Four the Hard Way". To be honest, I really wasn't expecting much from this album, but after a couple listens I was very pleasantly surprised. Sure there are a few songs that don't really rank for me in the upper echelon of Danger Danger tunes, but hey, that's true of every band, isn't it? Can't love everything. But frankly, there are a couple of songs on here that I believe are better than anything from any of the first two albums. "The Girl Ain't Built to Sleep Alone": if you heard this one on the radio, you would swear that it was Bon Jovi. And I mean that as a compliment. This is a great melodic rock song. I played it for my wife cause I thought she'd like...
Although a little different from their first two albums, I think this album is the best they have done. I felt a little dissapointed about their previous album 'dawn' because it was a good album but very inferior to the first and second ones. 4 the hard way is different from all of them, the band remains with just two of their original members, the new music and the new vocalist would never make you guess is danger danger the group you are hearing, even if they include a new version of Comin' home. The songs i like the most in this album are jaded, i don't need you, Goin' all the way, and above all of them, heartbreak suicide. Paul Laine is very good at vocals, I'm amazed. I've heard some people that preferred Ted Poley but I don't.
The only other review about this album is a negative one, so I am obliged to write another. Since this is not an a bad album at all! Sure, if you think DD's debut album was their best one, you like you're rock albums sugar-froasted sweet and you're bound to hate this one. On the other hand if you like to rock n'roll with attitude: look no further. Four the hard way is a full-grown rock album, melodic with some rougher edges. Compare it to Winger's Pull, Poison's Native Tongue or Mötley Crüe's self titled album (The one without Vince Neil). All of these album's got bad reviews, though they are all high quality rock albums. Four the Hard Way prepares you for the Return of the Great Guildersleeves.
