Further distancing himself from the shadow of ex-boss, Otis Taylor,
Eddie Turner's sophomore album continues down the same road as last
year's Rise. This disc still focuses on shades of rock and blues. Anyone
slagging Turner for his obvious Hendrix fixation on Rise will have the
same problem here as Jimi references abound, lyrically and musically.
Yet fans of this upstart's ballsy approach must applaud him for the
calibre of his clone-manship. Leading with his best foot forward, Dangerous
sets the pace for the record – a highly muscular, no filler, full-blaze
attack that grabs attention. A Taylor-like use of repetition creeps
into the set of mostly original music, yet Turner pulls it off with
songs like Shake4Me and The Turner Diaries. Likewise, I'm A Man, I'm
A Man takes a minimalist approach but the improved quality of Turner's
singing voice helps him turn in a convincing argument. Experiments with
various instruments and back-up singers are sometimes successful, sometimes
not. Yet this next stage in Turner's musical Diary is a progressive
one, depicting an artist who has much more to say, even as his style
evolves in the saying.
