Dancin' On the Edge,
This review is from: Badlands (Audio CD)
Jake E. Lee, Ray Gillen and the rest of Badlands flirted with a near perfect album here. There is a great blend of blues, hard rock and ballads on Badlands. Lee proved that there is life after Ozzy. The guitar work is artistry and the vocals magnificent. I get tired of wondering why so many great records get so little airplay
If you're looking for more than just one of those 80's hair bands, Badlands could be what you need. There are four absolute killer cuts here:"The Streets Cry Freedom", "Dancing on the Edge", "Ball and Chain" and "High Wire". Wish there were sound clips, so, that you can see what I mean, but you'll just have to live with me saying this is worth your money and time.

Its called hard rock not hairbands ! Us true fans liked all of it then as we still do ! I dont understand the need to take shots at that genre in reviews ! To this album Winters Call is the best song on it ! If u wer a fan u would know there wer plenty of great bands in the 80s whos music had deep subject matter ala. Saxon and on and on and plenty that wernt but was loved the same ! The idea that a person was stupid to listen to those bands was stupid in its self !
