Bang Tango - Psycho Cafe
One of the interesting things about this album is that you can literally hear the last vestiges of hair metal being shaken off. There are small pieces of Poison and Cinderella in Bang Tango, but they generally fall by the wayside.
Psycho Cafe is a hard-hitting album. There's a lone ballad in "Just For You," which sounds a little obligatory and half-hearted, but that is followed up with some Flea style funk slapping on "Do What You're Told." This album bridges the gap from the 80's brand of metal to the 90's. If you want to hear exactly what that change sounded like, this is your jam.
Baleeted? No. I have a soft spot for funk-infused metal.
