5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Times
Having never heard of Chuck Brodsky before, I just listened to “Dangerous Times” on 91.3 (Seattle / Bellevue). Plain and simple, it’s an important song, one that everyone should be required to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music of the 80’s
Finally I have the LP that I have not found in any store or download portal for years. Good independent music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome 80s
This band with the peculiar name, e.g. The search on the net is not easy, I became aware of the end of April 88, when I heard “Jesus And The Devil” on the radio. With only that one song, they grabbed me.
this album is a really good one. The songs are great. The then oh so typical comparisons with the Simple Minds and U2 are certainly not completely out of thin air, but in 1988/89 they did not hit on a lot of bands?
Highlights of the album are certainly the already mentioned “Jesus And The Devil” (here in a different version than on the maxi-single), the title track “Dangerous Times” as well as the balladesque “Last War Song”. If you liked the albums of the bands mentioned at the end of the 80s, you might discover a pearl here.

5,0 von 5 Sternen Tolle Musik der 80-er Jahre
Endlich habe ich die LP, die ich seit Jahren in keinem Geschäft oder Downloadportal gefunden habe. Gute Independent – Musik.

5,0 von 5 Sternen Willkommen 80er
Auf diese Band mit dem eigentümlichen Namen, der z.B. die Suche im Netz nicht einfach macht, wurde ich Ende April 88 aufmerksam, als ich “Jesus And The Devil” im Radio hörte. Mit nur diesem einen Song hatten sie mich gepackt.
ist dieses Album ein richtig gutes. Die Songs sind klasse. Die damals ach so typischen Vergleiche mit den Simple Minds und U2 sind sicher nicht völlig aus der Luft gegriffen, aber trafen sie 1988/89 nicht auf jede Menge Bands zu?
Höhepunkte des Albums sind sicher das bereits erwähnte “Jesus And The Devil” (hier in einer anderen Version als auf der Maxi-Single), der Titelsong “Dangerous Times” sowie das balladeske “Last War Song”. Wer die Alben der genannten Bands Ende der 80er mochte, könnte hier eine Perle entdecken.
