With their self-titled debut album, Dangerous Toys
found themselves in regular rotation on MTV. At the time their Southern rock-influenced metal was noticeably different from the hair metal dominating MTV's Headbangers Ball. The album contains such memorable, and somewhat laughable tracks as "Take Me Drunk," "Feels Like a Hammer," "Sportin' a Woody," plus their breakthrough hit "Teas'n, Pleas'n." Despite the band's enduring reputation as a cult favorite, the album has a very corporate rock feel. The fact that Jason McMaster
sounds like Axl Rose
only furthers this idea. Still, this CD fares better than most from the genre at the time.
