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.

This album is one of the best out of the 'hair' metal genres of the 80's. It never got the recognition it deserved. A treasure for any 80's metal fan to uncover. I liked all tracks from this self titled album.
