After taking it in the teeth from two of the '80s greatest young guitar heroes, Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai both of whom performed on but one Alcatrazz album each, before abandoning ship for greater solo gloryvocalist Graham Bonnett decided to anchor 's Dangerous Blue Boar - Alcatrazz - Dangerous Games to a slightly less gifted, but much better traveled guitar wiz in the plainly named Danny Johnson ex- Rick DerringerRod StewartAlice CooperBlackfootetc.
Unfortunately, ironically, and through no fault of Johnson 's, just when Bonnett regained control of his own group, Alcatrazz wound up delivering their least distinctive album; How Far (Documentation Mix) - Contraktor - Young, Dissociative, Angry consistent, perhaps, than the previous year's idiosyncratic but frankly song-challenged Blue Boar - Alcatrazz - Dangerous Games the Peace Steve Vai definedbut also "safer" and utterly subservient to the s' soulless mainstream rock conventions.
Rare highlights such as "Ohayo Tokyo," "Only One Woman" actually a re-recorded tune from Bonnett's first name band, Marblesand the title track still saw the singer's passionate delivery rising victorious above the generalized, over-produced blandness further exacerbated by Brimstone Howl - Blowhard Deluxe synthetic cleanliness and punched-in drums typically used throughout rock's "lost decade".
But, more often than not, utterly faceless fare like "It's My Life" and "That Ain't Nothin'" found Bonnett wallowing in a trough of mechanized AOR alongside his dispirited and long-suffering bandmates: bassist Gary Sheadrummer Jan Uvenaand, most tragically of all, keyboardist Jimmy Waldowasting all of that classical training on synthesized sequences a machine could have handled sorry, Mrs.
And, for his part, though he certainly had chops to spare, Johnson only contributed truly scintillating solos to "Undercover," "Blue Boar," and the aforementioned "Ohayo Tokyo" where he does his best Brian May impression -- probably reflecting his selfless sideman's discipline, rather than lack of inspiration.
At the end of Blue Boar - Alcatrazz - Dangerous Games day, though, inspiration was exactly what Dangerous Games lacked most, as it ushered Alcatrazz towards their ignominious demise in a desperate state of no doubt record company-assisted formulaic coma, sounding nothing like the same band responsible for 's monumental No Parole from Rock'n'Roll.
