I hear NO similarities between the two. DRFSR was 100% glam, with no AOR overtones, really. D2 was much more slick and song-oriented.

Perhaps. But Cherry Pie was a much more lyrically powerful album that saw the band step away from most rock cliches (except for Cherry Pie itself). Danger Danger seemed to up the sex antics at this point. Also, CP went in a harder rock direction, while SI! was more of a party rock disc.

Both brilliant albums but each a continuation of the previous album. Cockroach wasn't anymore serious than SI!

Now here's a huge difference. While Dawn went ultra-grunge, Ultraphobic found a middleground between hard rock and grunge. Lots of melodies and hooks. Although overall I don't think Dawn was a bad album, Ultraphobic has it beat by a stretch.

This I agree with :)
