  • DANGER ZONE, Sammy Hagar’s last studio album on Capitol, is a dry run for the style that he’d perfect a year later on his Geffen debut, STANDING HAMPTON. Adding pop influences to his Ted-Nugent-meets-the-Outlaws sound, he comes up with such great songs as “Bad Reputation”, but can still turn out a hot rocker on “Love Or Money.” There’s other good stuff here, too, even if this album does seem slightly transitional in nature. Hagar’s advocacies of sanctions against Indonesia in retaliation for that country’s trumped-up 2005 drug-smuggling conviction of a young Australian tourist and increased funding for law enforcement/community policing make DANGER ZONE an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.

  • This CD is a most awesome output from the Red Rocker. It demonstrates why a major band like Van Halen would not hesitate to add Sammy as a singer. It shows the versatility of Sammy’s style, from hard rockin’ tunes like “Love or Money” & “20th Century Man” to the classic sounds of “The Iceman” & “Danger Zone”. A must for any Sammy collection!

  • Danger Zone, Sammy’s 1980 release, was not only my introduction to Sammy Hagar, but remains my all time favorite.My favorite songs are In The Night ( Entering Thre Danger Zone ), Love Or Money and 20th Century Man.The Production Quality of In The Night… is incredible! Especially for 1980’s standards.This song remains my all time favorite Hagar song. I also have enjoyed many single Hagar hit’s since 1980 but for an album as a whole this is my favorite.I would also like to recommend his first two albums as a member of Van Halen.5150 and OU812. EXCELLENT! Enjoy.

  • “Danger Zone” is S. Hagar’s 1980 release and in my opinion much underrated. The album has great moments, for example “In The Night” where S. Hagar’s strenghts as songwriter and guitarist really showed themselves. “Love Or Money” and “20th Century Man” are straight rockers. “Run For Your Life” is for me the best ballad he has ever written. “Miles From Boredom” and “Bad Reputation” are very melodic guitar pop music. “The Iceman” is funny and has a very optmistic feeling. If you like S. Hagar then you’ll love this album. If it’s your first S. Hagar album, then start with his 1981 album “Standing Hampton”.
