5 stars What a masterpiece!! Really... many prog fans consider teh first UK album as the best of the band, but I think that DANGER MONEY is so much better than UK-SAME.

My reasons: I love Bruford's work and style but I think Terry Bozzio gives to the band new power and ideas, facing the bored 80's with this album plenty of prog and symphonic songs. Nothing to say about Mr. Jobson and Mr. Wetton. In this album they really make a great job. Both of them sounds so free and inspired...

Now, the songs. "Danger Money" is a song that begins with a jazzy introduction, in the stuff of UK-Same. But suddenly turns into an almost-neo prog song. Great lyrics and little drops of pop mixed with some prog scales. Maybe the only song that don't deserve 5 stars. "Rendez-vous": A classic. one of that prog-ballads that yopu will never forget. Wetton's voice in his total expression. "The only thing she needs": A fantastic prog song with an extraordinary drum introduction and superb work on keyboards and violin of Mr. Jobson. A piece of collection to every fanatic of real and original prog.

"Caesar's Palace blues": Another classic. I really love the live version of this songs which appears on de "live" LP. But in this case, we found maybe the jazziest song of the album. Very-very good. "Nothing to lose": Another prog classic of the late 70's at least for me. A great compostion, again with the spectacular keys and violin of Mr. Jobson. "Carrying no cross": 12 minutes of pure prog. Really a masterpiece. Bozzio, Wetton and Jobson gives one of the most perfect and beautiful prog songs of the late 70's. Dark lyrics, incredible piano and keys solos, terrific crescendos... a constant prog cavalcade...

Five stars, no doubt... You have to listen this album...
