Scandal released the Warrior album in 1984, and when singer Patty Smyth left the group soon thereafter they broke up for good. So, there are two albums to track down to complete your Scandal, assuming you do not already have them both. Warrior is the best place to start because of its Top Ten hit title track. "Shooting down the walls of heartache. Bang! Bang!" is 1980s pop genius, and that song does sound fresh. If you are hoping to have heard any of the other nine songs on this surprising platinum album, well, move along, move along. These aren't the songs you are looking for. Scandal's one-hit wonder "The Warrior" is worth hearing again.
