I know they've been shared a number of times before, but if anyone has Dangerous Times and/Or The Promise available I'd be very grateful :-)

Thanks for this. As I expected the second album doesn't really live up to the first (sophomore syndrome), but it does a better job than most.
The first album is a cold classic, especially the title track.
