Guest review by
Lääz Rockit's second album No Stranger To Danger explored the more melodic and commercial aspects of their debut album. However, this hardly bears similarity to glam metal - not even to the heavier first wave - as often derided. Save for a ballad, the album is made up of pure if rather polished slightly sped-up heavy metal that occasionally gives nods towards the band's speedy peers. Still, even a die-hard thrash fan would be hard-pressed to pinpoint these moments as the album has a very light-hearted, perhaps even boyish feel atypical for the continuously dour underground metal scene. It is mainly Michael Coons' fault, one of the most versatile vocalists of the genre, and to a lesser degree that of the guitarists who just seem to run with it.

An average album at best.. same as the previous one. Not thrash tbh, more like NWOBHM or USPM. IMO generally the songs need improvement; "Off The Deep End", "Wrecking Machine" and "Leatherface" are ok tracks, not great but better than majority of this album, that is quite average.
