If you like whitesnake you'll love this album

From: WhiteLion Date: September 20, 2001 at 10:26
I'm amazed of how good mr Sykes sings!!! Splendid rock in the vein of Whitesnake

From: koogles Date: January 1, 2002 at 11:08
Club-footed so-called "supergroup" comes off as a real bore. Whitesnake on a bad day.

From: Rycheage Date: January 11, 2002 at 20:54
Excellent disc from the ex-guitarist from Whitesnake. John Sykes has excellent vocals as well as great song writing. "Billy", "Black-Hearted Woman" and the touching ballad "Out of Love" highlight this disc. A must for any 80's metal fan or Whitesnake fan.

From: SIXXSWINE Date: January 12, 2002 at 0:20
"Club-footed so-called "supergroup" comes off as a real bore. Whitesnake on a bad day?" And you know folks it's not to far from the truth! The production is what sounds weakest! I mean it's like Bob Rock slept during the sessions! Sykes is a "good" musician, what on earth was he doing hangin' with Franklin & Appice?! I mean, he would have fair just as well picking up some "street musicians" in Vancouver, where this was recorded... Listen at your own risk... 3.0

From: Curious B Date: January 31, 2002 at 13:28
Jelly Roll and Out of Love are highlights of this album. Sykes is impressive vocally. Previous comments are interesting. Can agree in one aspect that the Bass sounds very thin for a Metal band. Other than that, a recommended buy. Cheers!!

From: reebboy Date: February 12, 2002 at 22:22
How much crack have koogles and sixxswine been smokin when they listened to this CD This album is an absolute masterpiece. Sykes is one of the most incredible guitarists around. If you liked the whitesnake 1987 album, this is a must have..

From: Large Date: May 14, 2002 at 7:17
Fantastic release, just goes to show who was behind Whitesnakes massive 1987 album. This release is by far and away the best Blue Murder album, and in the top 10 of all time Hard Rock albums. A must for any serious Hard Rock fan. A+++++

From: Desslar Date: May 14, 2002 at 16:45
There are a few cool bluesy numbers, especially tracks 4, 6, and 9. Mostly it's rather slow and a bit dull. Not quite Whitesnake.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: July 15, 2002 at 10:40
Totalmente incomestible,buenas criticas en su epoca,pero temas muy largos y ABURRIDOS.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: July 25, 2002 at 16:40
I can remember way back when I saw the video for "Jelly Roll." I thought to myself "Hmmm.... Nice try, but it's lacking." After that I had this feeling that the whole album was more than likely the same way. I don't know? HELL, these queers put out three albums so maybe it wasn't so bad?

From: Blue Charvel Date: July 26, 2002 at 11:37
"Not quite Whitesnake" pretty much sums it up. On a technical note, I really dig the guitar sound though...

From: nitrodoll Date: August 21, 2002 at 11:29
great album, i had to see their two videos for valley of the kings and jelly roll and a tune on the radio (the title track) before i bought it.i have it on vinyl..there's a fun story attached to this album..there was a band in holland called blue murder with a dito song..john sykes bought the rights on the name and the song and released it himself..true story.. nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: tony Date: August 25, 2002 at 9:47
very good album,highly recommended to any 80s hairbands fans. just judging from all the negitive responses i noticed they are comparing them to whitesnake? i don't think sykes wanted anybody to compare his group to one he was noted for playing with before. try forgetting whitesnake and it might sound a whole lot different.

From: CCmePP Date: August 30, 2002 at 21:21
This CD ROCKS--Sykes is one of the best axmen ever--Varry underated--You can tell SYKES by his styl of play--A must have CD--He sings great too. P.S.-Coverdale Fired Sykes after makind WHITESNAKE self titled release,he said sykes wasn't flashy enough in play and proform.-Listen to the harmonic on this CD-Thats flashy!!!!!!!!

From: THE ROCKER Date: September 5, 2002 at 11:33
NO SE PQ ESTE DISCO DICEN Q ES COMO WHITESNAKE EN EL 1987,LA VERDAD ES Q YA KISIERAMOS Q FUERA ASI DE BUENO,ES UN DISCO Q SE HACE MUY PESADO AUNQ SE SALVA ALGUN TEMA COMO BLACK.HARTED WOMAN

From: Baris Date: September 6, 2002 at 1:03
Brilliant hard rock. After Whitesnake, Sykes passes the test. His vocal is also high. The guitar screams in the same tune as it was in Whitesnake 87 record. However this album is somewhat different and can be called as a "dirty Whitesnake".

From: viva mexico!!!! Date: September 14, 2002 at 0:24
disco muy epico y bien logrado, no esta para nada aburrido!!! a menos que te guste la britneta puberta (britney spears) o no 9 champions a 1 ?

From: Richard H Date: September 27, 2002 at 3:16
Whitesnake 1987 was a true classic that set the bench mark for others to follow in that era.Blue Murder came out and took the direction of this album one step further.Sykes,Appice and Franklin out did themselves with this fine opus.It wasn't as commercially accepted as the whitesnake disc but this was killer never the less.Excellent musicianship,epic songs fuelled by high octane vocals.An unbeatable combination of fine players and songwriters.

From: JOHNNIE Date: October 9, 2002 at 11:57
A TRUE CLASSIC, 2ND PART OF WHITESNAKE'S '87 MASTERPIECE...WHEN THE WORLD FINALLY CRUMBLES THIS ALBUM WILL PROBABLY REMAIN FOREVER IN OUR BELOVED ROCK N'ROLL HEAVEN.THE BEST OF THE BEST

From: robert Date: October 20, 2002 at 10:55
INCONMENSURABLE el gran sykes, otra obra genial del 89'(q año)temazos brutales como:BILLY, SEX CHILD,el baladon OUT OF LOVE..Hacen d este disco uno de mis favoritos absolutos, ademas me suena al acojonantisimo 1987 de WHITESNAKE, es q esa guitarraza es inconfundible, q sensibilidad y buen gusto ala hora de tocar de este ex-thin lizzy,whitesnake, tigers of pangtang... BLUE MURDER de los mejores grupos d HARD ROCK MELODICO q han existido AL menos para mi..

From: corwin38 Date: October 25, 2002 at 9:15
y'all who put this band down are trippin'. your sense of music is somehow askew. carmine and tony are awesome studio/tour musicians. they've been backing up the biggest names in rock forever. john sykes is an awesome guitarist. this album on it's own rates higher than any white snake i've heard, as good as whitesnake was. listen to this album again if you don't think it's very good. it's original, great production, the guitar work is great, awesome chord voicings... listen again...

From: corwin38 Date: October 25, 2002 at 9:19
P.S. the bass could be a bit heavier however...but all in all a great rock album...

From: Rocker76 Date: November 26, 2002 at 15:43
I love this album! Next best thing to Whitesnake but in some ways...better! John Sykes is the man! And as for Carmine Appice on drums: Ozzy tapped him to fill in for Tommy Aldridge on "Bark" Tour back in 83/84. (Check out the video for Bark at the Moon! There's Carmine!!!)

From: ted Date: November 29, 2002 at 14:25
Gran disco de hard rock melódico ,un clásico indispensable para cualquier amante al sonido de una guitarra porque john sykes lo borda

From: izzy Date: December 9, 2002 at 19:09
damn! great melody at the end of Jelly Roll

From: freddy de keyze Date: January 3, 2003 at 19:35
Good CD, good hard rock. But a classic ? No way !!!

From: JOURNEY Date: February 2, 2003 at 14:25
what???!!! this is a superclassic, a masterpiece and a superfantastic album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Metalhead Date: April 27, 2003 at 6:00
This is indeed Whitesnake '87 part II. Which by no means negative! In terms of metal bombast, this band can equal Black Sabbath. John Sykes guitar playing is very good too. It is not the Yngwie-shred type of speed playing but just simple rock licks played incredibly fast. Six good songs out of nine ain't that bad.

From: Date: April 27, 2003 at 21:44
great album!! very very well played by everyone!

From: jeff Date: May 21, 2003 at 21:47
The best Whitesnake album since 87.

From: dckiss Date: May 25, 2003 at 17:53
True Mr. Sykes did co-write the songs on the classic Whitesnake Whitesnake album. But I don't think this album sounds anything like Whitesnake. With that said I think it's just as good. I had the opportunity to see these guys live twice and both times they were great! It is with great regret that I must report that I didn't like anything they did after this album.This album is 10 on a 10 scale everything else is a 3 or 4. I am a HUGE fan of Mr Sike and wish he was in Whitesnake again.

From: Tony Date: June 9, 2003 at 5:25
Well here I go being redundant but like most of the above reviews state this is basically another "Whitesnake 87" and that's not a bad thing. Kind of has a classic 70's Zepplin-ish quality to it which was a bit of a contradiction to EVERYTHING hard rock that was released in 89'. Probably threw a lot of hard rock fans off. Sykes is great here and this still stands the test of time!! Check it out.

From: Alejandro Date: June 26, 2003 at 8:13
Este disco es la muestra clara de quièn fue en gran parte responsable de lo que 1987 fue para WHITESNAKE.SYKES es amo y señor de esta banda y se despacha con un album debut mas que respetable.El mismo JOHN al cantar intenta acercarse a COVERDALE.Hay puntos culminantes en VALLEY-RIOT-JELLY ROLL-y la balada OUT OF LOVE,es la perla absoluta del disco.Obviamente FRNAKLIN y APPICE sobran la situaciòn a base de puro talento,y la producciòn es excelente.Recomendado.8/10 carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: TONY HAIGH Date: August 4, 2003 at 5:50
A very solid piece of music. Good studio production. Heard this album 1990 while in Spain. Out of love again, valley of the kings, classic. Wished more tracks were on the album though. yet, still of the night, looking for love might just tip blue murder's album.

From: ksymrtn Date: January 28, 2004 at 14:44
For all of you who have put this release down for sounding like Whitesnake, you are idiots, how can you expect it to sound like anything different, John Sykes is an incredible musician and writer...HE IS still producing today, where is Whitesnake? Gone, because John Sykes was the sound of Whitesnake, Coverdale didn't want to keep Sykes in the band because he was jealous of his abilities and talents as a front man. This CD is definitely a 10.

From: meradona Date: February 2, 2004 at 13:44
impresionante , lo escucho desde el 90 y no puedo parar una vez al mes lo pongo y sigo flipando, he visto algun comentario por arriba de "muy aburrido" , chicos compraros un sonotonex

From: Blue Tequila Date: February 3, 2004 at 22:28
I was expecting Whitesnake due to the above comments but it sounds a lot more like late 80's-early 90's Black Sabbath (which are my favorite Sabbath albums) IMO. Sykes sounds similiar to Tony Martin and a lot of the songs not only have that Sabbath feel but the lyrics are pretty dark as well. Great album and Sykes guitar playing is awesome.

Pues... la verdad es que no suelo escribir en el foro, pero ante algo así me veo obligado a hacerlo. Estoy TOTALMENTE DE ACUERDO con el amigo madridista, este disco siempre me pareció un peñazo, infumable, pedante y repetitivo. Vamos, lo escucharía otra vez (por si he cambiado de opinión), pero PASO de castigarme hoy... a lo mejor otro día me atrevo. Un saludo a todos! KEEP ON ROCKIN'

yet another great cd to find from that period.why is it the first cd from bands are usually the best? has the great tony franklin on bass.i hear its been re-released in japan.

From: SIBU Date: March 15, 2004 at 14:57
Sykes es increible, es un disco epico....como que temas largos y aburridos??..a ver los "super metaleros"...se fijaron en los arreglos'??..en el bajo y la baetrìa..hey!!??es rock ochentero..que mas quieren???....me costò 5 años conseguir el opriginal.. no se olviden de "Nothing but trouble" y "loveland"..grandes discos de MR. Sykes..!!!...(cuando sacamos algo nuevo "guerito"?

UNO DE LOS MEJORES DICOS DEL 89,JUNTO AL DE MR.BIG Y AL DE BADLANDS ¿ABURRIDO?,QUIEN DICE ESO NO TIENE NI PUTA IDEA

From: Endika Date: May 4, 2004 at 10:56
Aburrido este disco?? Quien diga eso no tiene ni idea de hard rock; este disco esta lleno de melodias increibles del maestro Sykes. Un disco explendido.10/10

From: run2u Date: May 21, 2004 at 22:56
Sí,aburrido.Pero es mi opinión y prefiero no entrar en movidas sobre tener o no tener idea de hard rock Creo que el álbum rebosa pedantería y autocomplacencia,no le veo la chispa por ningún lado...y eso que INTENTÉ que me gustase.Me alegro por los que lo disfrutáis.Para mí,repito,PARA MÍ,más infumable que los cigarrillos de plátano(ya sabéis lo que se decía de las tiras secas del plátano...jaja). Un saludo a todos, KEEP ON ROCKIN'!! run2u69@hotmail.com

From: Big Papa K Date: June 12, 2004 at 23:16
John Sykes continues the great showing he had a Thin Lizzy's last album and Whitesnake 1987 with Blue Murder. Hard rocking epic tracks (Valley Of The Kings), good Zeppelin like ballads (Jelly Roll), and heavy rocker (Riot) are what hard blues rock should be. The only negative is the bad cock rocker Sex Child. 9/10

From: Kostas Date: August 3, 2004 at 15:51
hey i'm from Greece.This Album is 100/10.Sykes Rules He is THE GUITAR GOD.All of the three cd's are Perfect.Just let the music speak into U!

From: Hudson5280 Date: August 13, 2004 at 21:11
This is possibly one of the best 80's rock albums hands down... Sykes can just flat out shred... Franklin and Appice are great with him... solid without overplaying... Whitesnake's 87 album was dripping with Sykes (Is that why Cov sacked him?) Sykes will join the ranks of axe slingers who have bounced from band to band and made each one better with his prescence... Tygers of Pan Tang, Thin Lizzy and of course Whitesnake! Sykes is a maestro!

From: KAN FROM TAWAN Date: September 10, 2004 at 2:47
GREAT GUITAR PLAY AND AMAZING VOICE BY THIS TALANT GUITAR MASTER John Sykes! IF YOU LIKE WHITESNAKE YOU WILL LIKE IT!~

From: Brian Mc Date: October 8, 2004 at 23:54
I loved this cd in 1989. It came across strong and made its point. I recall Blue Murder & King's X opening up for Billy Squire & they blew his pop ass completely off the stage. Today I've decided I don't like it anymore. It does suck production wise. Hairband production was horrid for good bass players & fretless guru Franklin fell victim here. Sykes & the Boys are no slouches but everything here is circumstancial & set to the era. "Ptolemy" & "Vally of the Kings" are the only redemption.

From: CheeseStooge24 Date: October 9, 2004 at 18:12
Read most of the other reviews and, I really liked drinking to this back when it was new. Thought they were one of the better of the endless line of 80's (or was it 90's, can't remeber just now) "hair bands". I like this album alot. True, if you liked Whitesnake u should like this. Not stellar, but much above average for the times. A couple of really good songs here, if you liked the era, you snould like Blue Murder.

From: melodic metal Date: October 11, 2004 at 20:26
hairband production isn't any worse than any other genre actually this is a very well produced album. i would rather listen to this than that whitesnake crap.

From: Kryiis Karl Date: November 5, 2004 at 15:16
This is not a Cd I enjoy listening to sometimes. No, this is a Cd I often WANT to listen to, even 15 years later. I must have listened to this one 10000 times and still enjoy it. The rythm section is huge, simply huge. Saw Appice and Franklin in Paris very lately with Pat Travers. With all respect due to Mr Travers, it made me wish for a Blue Murder reunion... Only Carmine hits the drums a bit too hard, this man is a pure brutalizer !!! Tony Franklin is really a great greta bass player.

Man is this a good disc! I had it on tape years ago but kind of lost touch until I bought it on CD a couple of weeks ago. Musically stunning. The ballad, 'Out of love' is sensational and 'Ptolemy' reminds me a lot of 'Live fast die young' by Roxx Gang - very similar riff! Who'd have thought! Either way, this is a killer CD and all the songs are of very high quality. Great stuff.

Veamos, al tener un gusto camaleonico y aunque lo mio es todo lo referente al AOR y Rock Melodico bandas como esta Badlans o Mr Big no son de mis Favoritas pero eso no hace que la critica destruya un album si no es malo, este tiene cortes muy largos y de autocomplacencia en solos pero hay cortes con agrado como Out of Love, Billy los que mas me gustan, otros que tambien tienen su gusto y otros no, si comparo, es como el Slip of the tongue con la misma puntuacion 7/10. Un Album Ok=Bueno

From: Dreamaholic Date: June 4, 2005 at 5:28
I bought this CD because of Valley of the Kings, one of my all-time favorite songs, but it wasn't enough to save the disc, so I got rid of it. I don't really remember much about it, so it must have been unremarkable to me. Like Blue Charvel, I like the sound of the guitars, and Sykes has a great voice, I think it was just poor songwriting. However, even this disc put Slip of the Tongue to shame. I bet Coverdale wishes he still had Sykes around...

From: metallian Date: June 14, 2006 at 6:32
average album! there is only three excellent songs: ´riot´, ´billy´ and ´black-hearted woman´. Main riff of ´black-hearted woman´ is very similar to whitesnake´s ´bad boys´, but this song is fantastic!!! but what is ´jelly roll´? absolute poor song! but live (screaming blue murder) this song rocks!! songs 1,7 and 9: 10 points, all other songs: 4 points. overall 6 points.

From: metallian Date: June 14, 2006 at 6:34

This debut for Blue was very good."Riot" and "Billy" are powerful songs with catchy choruses.Tree demons were loose at that time...

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 1, 2007 at 15:56
John Sykes from Whitesnake stikes out on his own and his new project, not surprisingly sounds a lot like Whitesnake with a heavy 70's guitar vibe. I really enjoyed this one, but I found it a little up and down in song quality. The songs "Jelly Roll", "Out Of Love", and the epic "Valley Of The Kings" are just magnificent. It's what lies in between that is kind of a let down. Still very good, just not essential to me.

From: juan carlos Date: March 16, 2007 at 14:14
Imponente clásico del Hard Rock con un sabor bluesy y veo que no lo es para algunos, controvertido album sin duda pero discazo al fin y al cabo. Imponentes e inconfundibles solos de Sykes en casi todos los temas, tremenda producción. "Out Of Love" es un Mega-Tema 1000 puntos y la voz me recuerda a Tony Martin!. "Blue Murder" tiene un inicio a lo Zeppelin descarado. Quizás "Sex Child" pueda ser un filler de ahí me lo paso de maravillas con BLUE MURDER. 9/10

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: August 13, 2007 at 3:52
The guiatr playing & singing by JOHN SYKES rules ! A true classic !100/100 If you don't have this CD , then you have nothin' ! The best performances from CARMINE APPICE & TONY FRANKLIN ever ! The perfect mix of the WHITESNAKE/THIN LIZZY influences and what a sound !!!huge !!!!

From: Hard/AOR Boy Date: May 29, 2008 at 21:48

From: shoemaker Date: March 8, 2009 at 16:21
When this came out, it sounded average to me, but after 20 years I really enjoy most of the stuff. Even some killertracks could be found. Impressive, fat drumsound.

From: rockhardrock Date: May 26, 2009 at 17:57
sykes followed the formula of whitesnake's album 1987 on this record. sykes isn't just great guitarist he is also great singer as you can hear here. my favs: Riot, Valley of the Kings, Jelly Roll and Out of Love

From: JamesEagle Date: October 22, 2009 at 8:29
Fantastic album. Sykes claimed at the time that if you wanted to hear what happened to the sound of the Whitesnake 1987 album, you should get this one. I think the sound is very different from '1987', but in terms of quality he was spot on. Great tunes, great guitar, great songwriting. All of the songs are brilliant, I would perhaps suggest that 'Billy' and 'Ptolemy' are standouts as they are even better than the rest.

From: BDrums1971 Date: June 22, 2010 at 23:00
One of my favorite cd's of all time. I'm NOT kidding! I absolutely LOVE this disc. Very heavy, yet very melodic feel throughout with great singing and soloing. For me, a real masterpiece.

I'm not given to this sort of thing normally, very few keyboards you see, but I do like this album. 'Jelly Roll' is a masterclass, by the way.

Some great guitar playing and vocals by Mr. Sykes but it does miss the mark a little! Better song writing and producton would help a lot. Still worth hearing if you are a fan of whitesnake, but not a must have!

A killer debut...being more specific about this album and undusting it(it was inside a cd container for some years )it made me wonder how such a brilliant act only lasted for 3 albums(2 studio ones and a live recording)... & ...my fave track of the album is "Billy" but also great songs such as "Riot","Valley Of The Kings","Sex Child" & "Jelly Roll" puts this record on top!!!...thanks God you can watch lots of Blue Murder vids at Youtube's site...essential!!!.95/100

This is a really awesome album. Jelly Roll is the best song, but they all rock.

Opiniones divididas para este discazo. Segundo CD que compré en mi vida (despues de Fifth Angel). Siempre me mató este disco. Que voz la de Sykes, que guitarras. "Out of Love" es una balada como pocas, con una intensidad bárbara. Este primero de Blue Murder para mi es una obra maestra. El segundo aflojó un poco pero también es una maravilla.

i respect but i don t understand all the very enthousiams comments about this record.yes blue murder make lot of efforts and make the maximum to look like to whitesnake.the main problem is that blue murder have not the spark of class,the charism, the genius inspiration of whitesnake.whitesnake play is champion s league blue murder play in second league.
