5 stars Despite the group's change of personnel, this is yet another progressive rock masterpiece. Danger money is an exciting fusion of rock, jazz, and rich electronic sounds. If you liked the first album, you won't be disappointed. The second-album lineup is: Terry Bozzio, John Wetton, and Eddie Jobson. Allan Holdsworth and Bill Bruford left UK after the first album, U.K.: an undisputable progressive rock masterpiece. Terry Bozzio was a fine choice to replace Bruford. Among Bozzio's most notable collaborations is that with Frank Zappa; Bozzio is a fine musician. He has since played music from many different genres. Complex rhythms are no challenge for this drummer, but he does not display his full talent here. He seems reserved, but powerful in his performance. Wetton's bass and vocals are in fine form; such a voice comes along very rarely. Most outstanding is the performance of Eddie Jobson, with really forceful keyboards and electric violin. I have yet to encounter another group with such skill, talent and as high aims in this category. This album is slightly less strong than U.K., but not enough to diminish the rating. "The Only Thing She Needs" really points to all the potential that lies undeveloped. One last point: U.K. seems a bit miss labeled as symphonic rock.
