Rob Rule

When former Mary's Danish members James Bradley, Jr. (drums) and David King (guitar) formed Rob Rule with singer Edward Anisko, guitarist/pianist Robbie Allen and bassist Steven Ossana, Danish fans couldn't help but wonder how Danish-influenced Rob Rule would be. But this debut album turned out to be a major departure from their work with Danish. Bradley and King were still embracing what was loosely defined as alternative rock, but it was a long way from Danish's alternative rock. While Danish was challenging, quirky and left-of-center, Rob Rule was much rootsier and not nearly as experimental. Melodic, down-to-Earth tracks like "Never" (not to be confused with Heart's 1985 smash), "Wayside" and "She Gets Too High" are a lot more southern-influenced than anything Danish would have done--obviously, King and Bradley had put the past behind them and weren't entertaining any ideas of trying to turn Rob Rule into "Mary's Danish, Part 2." Although generally decent, this release wasn't a big seller, and it would be Rob Rule's only Mercury album.
