Product Description

Terry Bozzio, Tony Levin & Steve Stevens have joined forces once again to create a second album's worth of high intensity music.

Amazon.com

The hurried nature of this supergroup's first outing, Black Light Syndrome, gave it an urgency and focus that is somewhat lacking on this release, replaced by a textural density that rewards repeated listening. "Dangerous" sets the tone with alternating metal and noir sections, complete with Led Zeppelin and Perry Mason quotes. Former Billy Idol sideman Steve Stevens spices up the proceedings with his signature flamenco influences and electronic textures, tossing in with some Jeff Beck-like guitar on "Melt." King Crimson bassist Tony Levin lends the rock-solid bottom that has made him a sought-after session man, but this is clearly Terry Bozzio's baby. On "Spiral," the former Zappa percussionist spins out of control, bashing and crashing with gleeful abandon. Elsewhere, his unique cymbal work and melodic toms add personality to otherwise straightforward compositions. --Michael Ross

BLS' first cd, BLACK LIGHT SYNDROME, was so good I actually had great hopes for the then-fledgling Magna Carta label. Although they were thrown together as per the standard MC formula - Supergroups While U Wait - the resulting music was wonderfully organic-sounding, as if these three guys had been waiting all their lives to play in the same band without knowing it. (It helps that none of them have a signature 'day-job' band they're vacationing from - and I consider Papa Bear too much of a Renaissance man to refer to him as 'King Crimson's Tony Levin'.) SITUATION DANGEROUS is the just-released followup, one I wasn't expecting, that's every bit as good as its predecessor. A little different, though: it definitely sounds as if, this time, they had longer than 3 days to whip up something from scratch. A little heavier, too. But what put the debut over the top was the equal contributions of each member in terms of styles, influences, ideas, and, oh yeah, chops, and I'm happy to say that hasn't changed, except that this time they had more time, more resources, and a better feel for one another - do the math for yourself. Bozzio's ferocity puts the majority of today's progmetal double-bass thunder merchants to shame; he's equally masterful when finesse and restraint are called for. Steve Stevens continues to reveal levels of subtlety and taste that go far beyond the big-hair flash he's unfairly identified with, as exemplified by not only his playing but his classy liner-notes tribute to the late great Curtis Mayfield. And Levin? You need me to tell you how fluid, seamless and exciting a player HE is? There's no Stickmeister extant who coaxes more lyrical sounds from that odd-looking doohickey. SITUATION is as satisfying an audio purchase as I've made recently; you could do plenty worse than to grab yourself a copy.

The 2nd album from these instrumental superstars is even better than their first one in my opinion. The album features more variety with blistering rock and soft acoustic interludes. All 3 musicians shine throughout with Steve Stevens again displaying much more versatility than any of his work with Billy Idol. His flamenco guitar flourishes are a highlight of the softer tracks on the disc. Bozzio is all over the place as well adding various percussion nuances that lesser musicians would never even dream of. Levin, of course is as solid as ever. Overall I think this is a stronger release than the debut. If you love fun instrumental workouts this album is a great one. Let's hope they put something else out one of these days.

It's hard to beat the "sophomore slump" syndrome, but the Bozzio-Levin-Stevens troika has superseded their first effort gloriously. The overall feel of these eight composition is a much richer musical, mystical tapestry which begs repeated listenings. When I first encountered BLS I was a little wary, knowing the fruits of guitar/bass/drums PLUS keyboards, as exemplified by Mike Portnoy's Liquid Tension Experiment. I thought that without the benefit of an additional tonal pallet this "power trio" would be deprived of the textural richness that a foursome can bring...let's just say I needn't have worried.
Steve Stevens, quite simply, fills all--and I do mean ALL--of the holes where a keyboardist would normally be, overdubbing layer upon layer of guitars, nylon-string guitar, electric sitar, treated guitars, guitar synth, and industrial noise samples. He's like a flamenco-ized Fripp, weaving his lush textures in between strident Spanish nylon-string flourishes and screaming slabs of metalist fury. Tony Levin is no less remarkable, treating the listener to his vast arsenal of lower-register instruments such as funk-fingered bass, upright bass, electric cello, and Chapman Stick, often counterpointing Stevens and anchoring the manic songs with solid, indestructable grooves. Terry Bozzio presides over the progressive smorgasbourg like an ancient shaman or drum master, mystically wrenching a thunderous fabric of restless rhythm from his forest of gongs and cymbals, keeping time with his kick/tomtom polyrhythms and ostinatos like an entire Taiko drum troupe.
If there is any disc of progressive rock/fusion which NEEDS to be purchased and cherished this year, it is this. The combined magic worked by these men will draw you into a more dangerous kind of musical alchemy than you bargained for.

Ok this album is a good example of outstanding good music executed by excellent musicians. Situation dangerous is a mixture among flamenco, heavy metal, jazz, i.e, progressive music. You can appreciate the difference between this album and the first one released in 1997, because the songs are more structured and "it's not as extended or jam-oriented" as Terry Bozzio says in an interview. Indeed there are more flamencoish parts in songs like "Tziganne". There is a remarkable influence from Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, King Crimson and this is because Tony Levin's bass. This guy is the best rock bassist of all time. And last but not least is Terry Bozzio, whose drumming is one of the most interesting in the last ten years owe to his style that mixes jazz, arabian music, flamenco, metal. He made a great job also in "Explorers Club" album, in which you can appreciate his performance with very talented musicians like John Petrucci(Dream Theater) and Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) If you don't have Situation Dangerous, please go for it.
