3 stars UKīs second album is very different from the first. With guitarrist Allan Holdsworth and drummer Bill Bruford gone, also is the jazz- rock/fusion leanings. Danger Money is very much John Wettonīs and Eddie Jobsonīs baby. Newcomer Terry Bozzio (ex Frank Zappa), an execllent drummer, was little more than a sideman (Holdsworth was not replaced). The music now is much more classic prog in the vein o ELP, with some commercial touches here and there.

Actually both records are so different in style that is difficult to compare. I think progheads will like this one more, although some radicals will bark at the pop tendencies of one or two tracks. But overall the music is very good, with some great keyboards passages, fine drum fills, some good violin solos and Wettonīs bass and voice at top form.

UK never develped their full potential, only releasing two studios albums. Nevertheless they are both very good and certainly will please fans of keyboards driven music. 3,5 stars.
