BJ were cannier than most when the tide turned, changing their sound/look less drastically than some. Compare to say Def Lepp, who were in the 'pop' market every bit as BJ - they said that with Hysteria they weren't in the same ballgame as Priest, more Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross. They came off the back of Adrenalize, where the singles were on the radio, and a successfull greatest hits album (with their highest charting single) and released Slang - from 'Lets Get Rocked' to 'I'm tired and feeling hatefull...' and ending up losing their existing fans and failing to pick up new ones. Then, due their long winded recording process, by the time they went back to their old blueprint, 7 years had passed between 'trad' DL albums - time waits for no one in this game.
