As any faithful MTV viewer of the late '80s/early '90s can attest, there was certainly a glut of glam metal bands vying for airtime during this era. While a handful of big hair metal outfits followed Poison
up the charts, quite a few scored a moderate hit or two and then fell off the face of the earth. Bang Tango
can definitely be included in the latter category -- but while most of their peers completely packed it in, the group (in many different lineup configurations) continued to release albums, including 2004's Ready to Go
. With singer Joe Lesté
the only original bandmember left in attendance by this point, Bang Tango
continued to follow their original musical path -- 15 years after the release of their debut. Lesté
sounds like he's certainly under the influence of Brian Johnson
on the album-opening "Ready to Go," and you knew it was only a matter of time until a power ballad reared its head, as "Rainy Day" gets the nod this time around.
