Captain Danger

Love Sweet Love

Review by Gary Hill

This EP from Los Angeles band Captain Danger is so cool. It has a lot of funk, but that's not the only thing here. I suppose that at times comparisons to Red Hot Chili Peppers are valid, but there is so much more going on here. Yet, this is only an EP, so they manage that much variety in just a few songs. That's impressive, and it matters to be entertaining while they do all that.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2022  Volume 6. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2022.

Track by Track Review
Come On Come Along
There is a gradual build-up to some killer funk grooving. This number is catchy and has some great energy to it. I love the stabby lines of guitar that are heard later.
Holly
For some reason I'm reminded of Prince just a little on this thing. This tune also has some funk on the menu. There is plenty of old-school soul music here.
I Don't Wonder Who Is Loving You
Harder rocking, this powerhouse really drives with a lot of smoking hot sound. There are still some mild hints of funk here, but overall this is just turbo-charged rock. It has catchy hooks. It also has a scorching hot guitar solo.
Boys Don't Cry
Here they give us a full on reggae version of a Cure song. It's an intriguing rendition that really sells a legitimate reggae sound.
Too Tough To Say
There is some funk back on this number. It has a tasty rocking groove.
Hollywood Douchebag (radio edit)
We're back into some serious funk zones here. This thing is a serious powerhouse. I dig the horns on the track, but everything about this oozes class.
