D.A.D. – Riskin’ It All
In a bad mood? You want crunchy, straight-forward Rock’n’Rock with hilariously funny lyrics? Then I have what you need: “”Riskin’ It All”” of D.A.D. from Denmark!

The chaos-quartet around the Binzer-brothers has fire off a hammer with their fourth album that is almost impossible to put into words, because the eleven songs of this record don’t take the detour over your brain, but directly infuse your blood. Here are no frills, no breaks, no complicated song-structures, where other bands try to find a way around to search for the door, D.A.D just don’t hesitate and break right through the wall!

Swift crackers (“”Bad Craziness””, “”Rock’n’Roll Radar””), mid-tempo-stompers (“”D*Law””, “”Grow Or Pay””), swinging acoustic-song (“”Laugh’n’a 1/2″”), bluesy swinger (“”Down That Dusty Third World Road””) or the band-hymn “”I Won’t Cut My Hair””, all simple, but oh so effective songs, which sour every bad mood and get every party to the boiling points! And who still wants more, just listen to/read the lyrics, because they are right-out hilarious!

Additionally Jesper Binzer prominent voice and Jacob Binzer unmistakable guitar-sound mark each song as D.A.D. and nothing else, absolutely unique!

“”Riskin’ It All”” has been, still is and will always remain an absolute classic!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL MODERN CLASSIC,
D.A.D. were formerly known as Disneyland After Dark but weren’t allowed to use the name Disney, but that another story.
“”Riskin’ it all”” from 1991 is not only the best album by D.A.D. It also one of the finest rock albums ever, combining traditional rock with hard rock and maybe even a bit of heavy metal. This is Creedence Clearwater Revival meeting AC/DC!! On “”Riskin’ it all””, the band continues the musical direction from the previous “”No fuel left for the pilgrims”” (1989), but this time they manage to go all the way. Maybe you’ve heard “”Sleeping my day away”” or “”Jihad””? If you have, you know what to expect!

The songs are very well written and are performed with 100% energy with a large portion of melody. D.A.D. also give the lyrics more attention than we sometimes are used to when it comes to rock bands in general, and the words are often quite funny, like in “”D- law””. The albums highlights are the strong rockers “”Bad craziness””, Making fun of money”” and the mentioned “”D-law””, the very melodic and pop influenced “”Grow or pay”” and of course the very catchy acoustic semi ballad “”Laugh `n’ a half””. Although this is a rock album D.A.D. shows us their ability to create variation in the music, and the slow rather blues inspired “”Down that dusty third world road”” gives you an instant feeling of four o’ clock in the morning after everyone left the party and you sit exhausted in the couch and the table is overloaded with cigarettes and beer cans.
Get this masterpiece – “”Riskin’ it all””.


5.0 out of 5 stars Damn good,
A classic rock’n’roll album, pure AC/DC energy with some more irony, fun and originality! A perfect rock’n’roll album. One of those albums so right that you wouldn’t change a note even if you could. It goes along perfectly well when you listen to it. The guitars wall of sound is full and satisfying. The voice is extremely correct for the genre. Lyrics clever and funny. You can’t ask more to a rock’n’roll album. A classic. If it was an AC/DC album it would be one of the best in their discography. I own it since it came out and I come back to it from time to time. Each time I think this is one damn good thing to listen!


5.0 out of 5 stars overmuch indeed!!
if your a fan of this band, even remotely, PICK THIS UP!!. There is too much stuff in here for the price that is being charged.


5.0 out of 5 stars Get your D.A.D fix
Do yourself a favour….GET IT! You Won’t Regret it!

This is one of the greatest rock albums ever. It no bulls**t hard rock all the way, and even the few slow tracks have great intensity and power. “A Laugh and a Half”” is one of the best acoustic songs ever written. Everyone who likes melodic hard rock with fat guitar-sound should own R.I.A., for me it D:A:D masterpiece and close to the perfect album!


5.0 out of 5 stars D.A.D Best,
Excellent album from these guys. I had bought No Fuel Left For The Pilgrims on cassette many years ago. I had forgotten about this band over the years. I looked them up and found this. The reviews were good, so I bought it. I’m glad I did. One of their best in my opinion. Buy this one, you will like it.
