In the wake of Guns N’ Roses’ megasuccess, it seemed as if every record label wanted its own group of hard-rockin’ bad boys. Bang Tango’s first album, 1989’s Psycho Cafe, with its hard-edged funk and untamed rawness, proved that this quintet was anything but a wannabe. Dancin’ on Coals, the group’s second full-length record, jumps light years ahead in maturity, leaving all comparisons by the wayside. With tunes like ”Soul to Soul” and ”Emotions in Gear,” Bang Tango has gotten smooth, gotten cool, and gotten down.
