      If you're looking at the flirts first three releases like Duran Duran then this is seven and ragged. Only theres more tracks on that album I like. Danger being the solid banger while the only other two I like are love reaction and dream boy.. The rest are just lousy go go's rip offs.

      You are better with your own sounds Bobby. You could have done more with this one. Thankfully the albums it's sandwiched between are solid enough

      Why teenage werewolf? You make ppl think oh a cramps cover.. Then the lyrics aren't the same and its just so bad it's beyond saving lol. Just pay them for their lyrics, you took enough from other artists ha!

        The main draw on this, the second album from the most famous Bobby "O" act, is of course Danger.

        On this CD issue you actually get three versions to choose from.

        The original (track 9) is perhaps the least well known. You could almost call it a demo of the full 12" mix.

        The François L'Herbier Remix (track 10) is quite serviceable, but really falls under the "hi-nrg fodder" umbrella. You know, the typical remix that tries to be special but ends up a shadow of what it was trying to improve upon.

        The original François L'Herbier mix (track 1) is the biggest reason for owning this CD. Not only is it the quintessential mix, but here it has never sounded better. Sure, you may have the track on 12", but this CD issue really does sound superb (as all the tracks do).

        Don't let Danger be the only reason for getting this album though...

        While Oriental Boy may hint at Aneka's cheesy pop hit Japanese Boy, it still holds a certain charm of its own and the quite bizarre lyrics simply add to the fun music.

        Love Reaction has nothing to do with the Divine hit, and it's a nice enough song. However it's very standard for Bobby.

        Big Boys Don't Cry kinda crosses between Bobby's Hi-Nrg and his surf-rock / ye-ye vibe. It's totally fun, and easily one that can get many repeat plays!

        Teenage Werewolf REALLY tries hard to be Electro. It is, in theory. Sadly the lyrics are incredibly embarrassing. I'm not exaggerating. Even apart from the cringe-worthy lyrics, the music is generic Electro and totally predictable. It's like Bobby heard Electro and followed it like a recipe. No ideas of his own.

        Telephone thankfully picks things up again. Very welcome Kim Wilde style New Wave with a pulsating bassline and uplifting chorus. Typical Bobby Orlando rock vibe. A little spoiled by a sax solo (which I fucking detest), but it's only for four bars.

        Dream Boy seems to think it's The Human League's Don't You Want Me at first, then it slides into Passion. A filler track you may say, but it's quite enjoyable. Just don't expect ANY surprises.

        Finally there is the lovely New Wave track Nice Girls Say No. Again, it's very hard to criticise Bobby when he does this fast paced vibe. Maybe the songs all sound the same on the outside (and yes, there's another sax solo), but it's irresistible fun.

        You also get the original versions of Oriental Boy and Dream Boy, which don't really differ that much from the remixes (unless you compare them side-by-side).

        Not a bad 2nd album at all from The Flirts, and certainly worth buying on this expanded CD issue.

        You won't be blown away by anything new, but you will definitely be pleased.
