This is a must have album for any fan of 80's metal. I think Jon Bon Jovi co-wrote all the songs and played on all the songs. Great Ballada and awesome rockers. Get it, you won't believe you didn't have this one already

this is a great cd to have and very hard to find. it allso has beautiful ballads such as hey ronnie,someday,and this aint love.

From: Jez Parry Date: July 28, 2001 at 0:16
Aldo returns after a 6 year break. Slightly heavier than before, but the magic is still there. Released on Jon Bon-Jovi's Jambco label, this really is a good cd to get {if u can},although i would say the earlier cd's just beat it.

From: P.C. Date: October 2, 2001 at 13:22
Very good melodic hard rock album . Title song is killer song .

From: Dragon chaser Date: October 6, 2001 at 8:42
this is my favourite one from aldo nova,geat songs:"someday","bang bang" ,take a chance man!

From: jambco Date: October 6, 2001 at 8:46
jon bon jovi and aldo nova together ..a really masterpiece ,it´s a shame but it´s hard to find ,if you like the 80´s bon jovi sound this one will be one of your favourites,it seems like new jersey part 2

La Ostia de bueno, solo hay q escuchar TOUCH OF MADNESS, como me suena esa voz al juanito buen jovi!!jj Me encanta este discazo, ademas q musicos!!!

From: iaffprofireman Date: January 5, 2003 at 0:47
Aldo is so incredibly talented. He never put out a bad album. If you like his ohters, you'll love this one! I don't know why this one wasn't a bigger hit for him, it is a fabulous album! I don't think there's a bad song on it. Check it out if you haven't.

From: Leigh Date: January 23, 2003 at 9:27
I found this CD in the early 90's when I was in my bon Jovi phase. Now I've got rid of the Jovi stuff, and only this remains. A killer album, great sound, and great songs. Check out Medicine Man, Young Love & and touch of Madness. A proper gem!

From: ted Date: May 10, 2003 at 16:28
Obra mestra del hard rock ,muy en la línea del"New Jersey" de Bon Jovi ,las diez canciones son joyas de incalculable valor musical ,si te gusta el buen hard no lo dudes

To the guy/girl who is searching this. I don't know where you can find it now, but what I can say is the following : don't search, it is not worth it at all. I like ALdo Nova, his first records were great, but this is third rate stuff from the man. Avoid this and if you don't have his three first records, search them at any cost !

From: tomcat Date: June 22, 2003 at 4:37
very good disc, i remember when this came out in the summer of 1991. I sure liked this album but deep inside i knew this wasn't aldo nova, if u know what i mean..the hair, the style , everything was too much bon jovi, but a cool record nevertheless, recorded by professional musicians.

From: Gar Date: June 23, 2003 at 17:01
This cd's pretty easy to find. I see it at just about every used cd store. Keep looking.

From: John Date: July 22, 2003 at 13:44
Worth it for 'Young Love'

From: CC Date: November 6, 2003 at 16:16
The best Aldo Nova album bar none! One of my all time fave rock CDs.

From: iamCANADIAN Date: February 18, 2004 at 23:05
Anybody in the Vancouver area looking for this CD can find it downtown at Granville and Nelson "Buy, Sell, Trade" CD Shop for CAD$10.50. This CD is hard to find here. Great CD!

From: lostchild Date: April 1, 2004 at 16:48
Mr. Nova puso toda la carne en el asador con este discazo. Perfecto, hard melódico de alto nivel con la colaboración de su gran amigo Jon Bon Jovi! El tema "Touch Of Madness" por si solo hace que este disco merezca ser comprado.

From: kern Date: May 3, 2004 at 13:28
just a new definition to the word 'awesome'!

My buddies did the touring and video "Blood On The Bricks" for the album. I am trying to get a copy of the video for a website. Can anyone help? kojotek@hotmail.com

From: Sandra Date: September 10, 2004 at 0:57
I used to have this on tape. I love Bong Jovi and I found Aldo Nova through Bon Jovi. I desperately want to purchase Blood on the Bricks but I can't find one copy anywhere. Great album. From Down Under!

From: Geoff Date: September 10, 2004 at 2:15
Cool hard rock album, which doesn't really get me started until track 5.'Young love' is excellent melodic hard rock, 'Modern world' is also excellent commercial / melodic hard rock, as is 'This ain't love'. 'Hey Ronnie' is a beautiful sentimental ballad, and 'Touch of madness' is my fave. A great rocker, with some killer lyrics. Overall, a few fillers but I've always loved those tracks mentioned there. Good solid commercial hard rock CD.

From: Rocker10 Date: October 30, 2004 at 18:56
Good time music on this one. Rock was still in good shape when this hit and this one was a reason why. Too bad a year later everything fell apart. Very cool record! 8.5/10

From: Animal Date: January 21, 2005 at 7:51
Very nicely done! This album is definently a rocker! All the tracks rock, but 1, 9 and 10 stand out above the rest! When they did these songs live, they did them to a tee! The rating is definently right for this album!

From: Lance Date: February 6, 2005 at 14:24
I have this cd out and Jon Bon Jovi co-wrote all but the last song and appears in the credits under background vocals. A good CD, but takes a back seat to his debut. Young Love is great and has Jim Vallance, Bryan Adams collaborator, in the song credits. Bang Bang is catchy and Hey Ronnie I recall as one I like. Think I'll go slap it in and here that great title track!

From: Dave Stamos Date: May 6, 2005 at 12:57
Genial!La mano de Jon se nota en esas melodías,las baladas “Someday” o sobretodo “Hey Ronnie”,de lo mejor del album.Las canciones más hardrockeras del disco son “Blood on the bricks” y la marchosa y típica “Bang bang”,temas guitarreros y directos.En “Young love” (co-escrita con Jim Vallance) o “Touch of madness” tenemos los “highlights” del disco,temas frescos llenos de vitalidad y optimismo.Así pues un trabajo para disfrutar y pasar una buena tarde de verano

From: howe Date: May 19, 2005 at 18:08
I was a never a big fan of this guy in the 80's, so when this album came out I was completely caught by surprise. This quickly became one of my fav hard rock cd's ever! Not one bad song here. Blood On The Bricks was the first single off the album and is definitely an awesome rocker. Touch of Madness is another great moment - fantastic song, beautiful solo! Then there's the great ballads Ronnie and Someday. The last track is a great rocker too - it has one of the best instrumental sections that..

From: howe Date: May 19, 2005 at 18:16
(cont.) ... I ever heard! Is it really Aldo Nova that plays this solo? It's as memorable as Steve Stevens's solo for Vince Neil's Look In Her Eyes or Nuno Bettencourt's solo for Play With Me! If you like great commercial hard rock with catchy chorus and the best guitar lines in the world, then you should definitely own this album! Awesome stuff!!!

From: Missing the 70's Date: November 19, 2005 at 0:04
Good return record. Very talented guy. I have always liked his music.

From: juan carlos Date: November 28, 2006 at 13:14
Muy buen Hard rock, de veras que muy bueno. "Touch of Madness" es el gran temazo del disco en mi opinión. Producción y composición de primera, cosa habitual en Aldo Nova. "Someday" "Young Love" y "Hey Ronnie" son los otros temazos del disco. Temas de excelente calidad en general aunque la voz de Aldo no sea de las mejores del negocio a mi criterio. 8.5/10

From: zld Date: May 29, 2007 at 10:51
Classic album and his best, i think. The japan version contains a bonustrack called: "dance of the dead". Bangalore Choir recorded this track too, but called it: "doin' the dance".9/10

From: Nick C Date: June 2, 2007 at 9:26
I have to say at the time of its release I wasn't overly impressed by this one - anything to do with Jon Bon Jovi is a big no no for me (actually make that a big NO NO!)and seeing as his influence was all over this release...well let's just say the CD didn't stay long in my collection. BUT recently I have had a song or so stuck in my noggin so I might have to re-buy it. Strange so many seem to find it hard to track down it's available darn cheap all over the WWW.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: September 25, 2007 at 22:13
Tremddo Discazo y pues creo que para todos el mejor tema del albun es Touch Of Madness saludos desde Peru-Ica - Santiago...

From: jan_vexel Date: April 11, 2008 at 20:43
and after "new jersey" in your bon jovi collection you should have ......"blood on the bricks"!!killer disc,not 1 filler,and 1st rate bon jovi on the most hard rocking(co-writter).

From: rocknroll Date: April 27, 2008 at 16:23
co-written with Bon Jovi, this is 9/10 album. All tunes are great the best is still Youg Love to me...

From: metalmastermusic Date: July 7, 2008 at 13:59
Classic album for sure form one of Canada's finest. I like this album better than the rest for some reason. It has more of teh 80's rock feel to it. Not quite AOR but rock. A step away from fantasy and not as many keys are involved on this album and it tends to be a bit more guitar driven. All in all a good disc. 83/100

From: Remastered Reason Date: September 30, 2008 at 21:17
Title track is killer & the musicianship is extremely tight through the whole disc.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 22, 2009 at 12:41
Undoubtebly Bon Jovi's contribuition helped a lot the promotion of this album (did Aldo really need this help???)but being both good friends and Italian descendants made this union possible(BJ was in the peak of his career!..good old BJ ...).The sound as some comments above went heavier ( i can compare this sound or situation with Dare's second album that by coincidence has almost the same name as Aldo's album,that one is "Blood From Stone",hahaha what a circunstance)anyway "Blood From The Bricks","Medicine Man" and so on...good songs from a talented musician that with or without extra names can make a fuss!!!.90/100

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 19, 2011 at 14:01
Boiled down to its bare essentials, this is a Bon Jovi album with Aldo Nova on guitars/vocals. It is common knowledge that Jon wrote most of these songs, and it shows; this almost sounds like "New Jersey Part 2," and that is a compliment, not a complaint. Anyone who gets off on big hooks, catchy choruses, and loud backing vocals will find themselves in the midst of a pleasure overload when they hear this CD. As with any Aldo Nova release, the guitars are a highlight as well, because simply put, the man knows how to beautifully sling an axe. Bottom line, this one is so good, it will, as the saying goes, make you shit bricks.

From: the rocker Date: December 28, 2011 at 20:35
I don't know how this guy disappeared after this cd. I know some people think that he jumped on the "hair band" wagon on this release,but I don't care. This is an AWESOME cd! As stated, Jovi co-wrote and sang backing vocals on this,(they were good friends). Blood on the bricks rocks, Bang bang, Young love, Touch of madness & Medicine man are good solid rockers. The 2 ballads, Someday(Love it)& Hey Ronnie are very nice. I recommend.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 28, 2011 at 21:54
He has returned this year and is playing the old rocking AOR tracks that we all know...you can watch some of his videos in youtube(write:Aldo Nova 2011)....cheers

From: patriotsfan29 Date: August 18, 2012 at 15:37
Absolutely love this record. You can very easily hear Jon Bon Jovi's influence throughout, which isn't a bad thing at all. I never dug this band until this record, so maybe JBJ had alot to do with that. Every song is great throughout, but Blood On The Bricks, Hey Ronnie, Modern World and Young Lust are my favorites.

From: 123charpenay Date: July 30, 2013 at 13:32
very very great record.the best aldo nova album ever.we reconize the help of jon bon jovi cause this album sound like a bon jovi album with aldo like singer and guitarist.only good songs ,a little varied for a big pleasure.hightly recommanded for fans of eighties american a o r.the japan import have a very great bonus track.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 23, 2014 at 20:57
Kinda like Billy Squier, Aldo Nova was a guy who had some success in the early '80's, right on the line between pop and hard rock. And then suddenly, it's 1991, and you're in your mid-30's and you wake up and think, "Oh shit! I'm a dinosaur from 1982!" Enter Jon Bon Jovi, who helps give him an updated, more metallic sound, but still very commercial. Add in some leather to show he's walking the walk too, and you've got ... well, it wasn't exactly a success, the name "Aldo Nova" permanently linked to the disco-rock of "Fantasy" from a decae earlier (the last time most Americans heard or cared about him) ... and the sound of Blood On The Bricks was already a little played-out by '91, the summer of "Monkey Business," "Man in The Box" and "Enter Sandman." But it's a good enough album all the same. The title track was cool, and I really liked "Medicine Man" at the time.

From: MetalllianStallion Date: June 6, 2014 at 5:38
Doghouse - enlighten me on your reference " disco-rock of "Fantasy" ? When I think of disco rock I think "I Was Made For Lovin’ You - KISS (1979)" as disco was long dead by 82'. In 1979 ELO released one of the last gasps of disco "Last Train To London" and July 12, 1979 became known as "the day disco died". Faster than hair metal turned to grunge thousands of people gathered at Comiskey Park stadium, in Chicago for a "Disco Demolition" (blowing up thousands of disco records). I shed a tear for K.C. and the Sunshine Band on that fateful day. The Aldo Nova debut(1982) hit #8 on the US charts and went 2x Platinum and is straight up MHR to my ears, with "Fantasy" being one of the harder tracks. Subject Aldo Nova (1983)also went Platinum before the downward spiral into obscurity. Aldo like Squier peaked early and was in the where are they now files by the late 80's. In case you missed it, check on ELO in full sell out mode (move over Be GEES) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_iNtncwOQ4

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 6, 2014 at 22:38
Honestly, I may have been off-base on that one, but the bouncy but mechanized, overprocessed sound of "Fantasy" just puts me in mind of disco. Maybe because I first heard the song years after it was popular.

From: Stixx Date: April 12, 2015 at 12:08
This one came out just a little too late, it should have been a big seller. Plenty of catchy tunes, as always with Aldo. Young love, Touch of madness and Hey Ronnie are perfect, excellent album with awesome sonic mix! Not only is Aldo in top form on this one, but he hired the best possible musicians to form his recording and touring band as well. Try to find Aldo Nova's soundboard recorded "LIVE in Cleveland 1991" CD, it's fantastic too.

From: hair metal again Date: May 23, 2018 at 12:32
excellent release for ALDO NOVA with the valuable help of Jon Bon Jovi and of course like everybody else jumping on the hair metal movement that was on at the moment!the result is very good with a great commercial sound ,good songs but that wasnt a real band and couldnt make bigger impact!"young love " is the best song that remind me of NIGHT RANGER and "bang bang",'someday" and "touch of madness " are excellent songs also!very good stuff indeed
