A diamond in the rough. Not the greatest material, but burning with potential -- as evidenced by their tail-kickin' follow up, Built to Perform

From: T-BONE Date: August 11, 2001 at 9:14
Both cd's are great. A little like 80's female band Vixen, but a better, harder drivin' sound. Nice to look at too!!!

From: jog Date: December 12, 2001 at 6:36
uncomprimising heavymetal well worth a listen

From: Dragonfly Date: December 16, 2001 at 17:33
A female band with balls. They kick ass when they rock. This first release is not as good as the Built 2 Perform but it kicks tail too. Not as commercial as Vixen.

From: Federico Date: April 10, 2002 at 20:01
Great cd. Power class metal with two great guitars. I love the voice of Gigi (she reminds a little my favorite female singer, Janet Gardner). By me this is much better than Built to perform. This is more melodic, sometimes 'built' is too much heavy. The cover of my vinil is much better than this. Gigi looks great there.

From: Richard H. Date: May 13, 2002 at 16:46
During the sorely dubbed'Hair Band Era',there were a few female bands on the scene making a name for themselves such as Rock Goddess,Girlschool & Vixen.Phantom Blue was the best of the lot.They looked awesome,played extremely well ,had cool songs but were highly underrated.An absolute shame.

From: Lullä Milanese Date: May 28, 2002 at 16:41
This album is great. I bought it today on LP. I had never heard about them since then. I liked the cover and thought 'it's hair metal' and so i took it. It's great, I loved it. Vixen is great, but they are even better.

Una mezcla entre Vixen y Lita Ford,las tias le ponen lo que hay que poner,ahora bien en los solos de guitarra ¿no ha tenido algo que ver Marty Friedman? Suenan a Cacophony total.GRAN DISCO.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: July 16, 2002 at 10:27
¿Por que mi portada es diferente?Tengo otra foto,me mola mas esta,menos mal que los temas no nos los han cambiado.Joder,lo que no pase en SPAIN.

Parece mais uma versão feminina do Iron,mas é uma grande banda HEAVY,mais pesado que Vixen,Lita,Heart,Jett,Girlschool,Runnaways e outras grandes bandas HARD.

From: fretboardfrenzy Date: September 16, 2002 at 18:36

From: b casarin MEX Date: November 18, 2002 at 22:50
buenas virtuosas de la guitarra pero sinceramente prefiero a grupos femeninos mas melodicos como vixen , saraya y lita ford; gustos son gustos

From: RichieRocker Date: March 27, 2003 at 16:15
Just heard the samples and these broads can kick ass!! Very intense music and they are all Hott!!

From: paul sainsbury Date: August 15, 2003 at 13:41
brill album better than built to perform they sound like a female version of skid row

From: Rene Date: August 18, 2003 at 15:08
Great band and great songs specialy LAST SHOT, a killer track. I have this one with a diferent cover on cd. I think i must have the first edition, i am not sure. it must be rare i think.

From: FM Date: September 4, 2003 at 14:33
A very cool record, classic heavy metal with good guitars and strong vocals. The songs have the right mixture of heaviness and melody. Definitely not a 'commercial' release, and this adds to the band's credibility. And they looked good, too! BTW, the album was co-produced by Marty Friedman... that was one of the main reasons why I bought this record, being him my favourite guitarist. I must say he saw good, this was indeed a band with some talent!

From: Punkiz/obsesivo Date: September 28, 2003 at 14:16
Muy buen album.Estas tias son la ostia,tocan hard rock cañero,y con una voz bastante buena.Un clasico,pillatelo o vete a hacer ganchillo.Me gusta mas que vixen,es mas cañero,

From: robert Date: September 28, 2003 at 20:24
Buen disco! pero me quedo infinitamente con mis VIXEN!!! Sobre todo por esa pedazo d obra d arte acojonante q es el 2º REV IT UP, para mua, el mejor disco de HARD /AOR CANTADO por una nena( y vaya nena) el 2º seria el TROUBLE OR NOTHIN' d la gran ROBIN BECK, empatado con el BRIGADE d HEART para mi humilde gustirrinin claro!!

From: robert Date: December 21, 2003 at 20:50
Hasta grupos d tias buenas salian en este mega año 1989!! 6'5 sobre 10!!

From: Jonny_B Date: August 31, 2004 at 13:27
I go MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD every time I listen to the debut of Phantom Blue. So few all-female groups have attempted to go the heavy-metal non-commercial route (hell, I can't name one besides Phantom Blue, at least not an equally good one.) The album speaks for itself. Find the official site and BUY IT! Another non-regretable purchase!

From: Geoff Date: August 31, 2004 at 20:38
Wow Johnny B, you really dig your female vocal hard rockers, hey?! I don't mind this one, but think it's a bit rough. Sounds like Racer X with female vocals. I really like 'Why call it love' and 'Never too late'. Overall, it is a good metal album but I admit that hearing a lady sing like that really doesn't do much for me personally...

From: Jonny_B Date: September 1, 2004 at 19:46
I'll listen to any female vocalist and like it...there've been only a few exceptions where I couldn't tolerate the vocalist (Star Queen, No Shame, De Allen) But I listen to most female rockers.

From: robert arenz Date: October 6, 2004 at 8:13
phantom blue is one of the best all girl metal bands of the late '80's.thier self titled release is a very hard driven,and an asskicking classic.thier second release titled built to perform is an astonishing piece of work.these girls put the b in balls on both albums.it just comes to show you that these girls are women of metal

From: EmptyArms Date: November 27, 2004 at 9:48
Are they any more girl bands ?

From: jakki steal Date: May 1, 2005 at 17:07
phantom blue are some hot sexy girls who really know how to rock! vixen are the only other girls that make better pussyrock!(poison are the best at cockrock)! 'out of control' and 'last shot' are killer tracks! girls go crazy for phantom blue!

From: pereira Date: January 8, 2006 at 16:57
THESE GIRLS ARE F****KING MAGNIFICENT!!!! this is´nt hard rock as it says above, but ass-kicking MELODIC METAL, yes that´s the best description for these girls´ musical style a little more metal than rock! now, seriously, their first two albums are really good, this album and the next are highly recommendable!!! A VER KUANDO HAY MAS COMMENTARIOS EN CASTELLANO AKI!!! SALUDOS DESDE PORTUGAL!!!

From: headbanger4life Date: January 26, 2006 at 1:32
This one is simply awesome. I love female hard rock/metal. These gals aren't your average famale band (Vixen, No Shame). They rock harder and still look hot. When I first heard this one, it below me away and left me curled up in the fetal position. Imagine an all female Skid Row.

From: Put-Put Date: August 12, 2009 at 2:15
An All Time Girl-Rock Classic R.I.P Michelle

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 21, 2010 at 16:19
Rocking debut album by these beauties!.....if u like Lee Aaron's type of voice then u might like Gigi's.."Going Mad" is such a solid starter,"Last Shot" is a very good one,"Why Call It Love" is Vixen-influenced,"Frantic Zone" and "Walking Away" are faves,"Slow It Down" is a cool number,"Never Too Late" is a highlight and "Out Of Control" apart from a highlight,closes the album with energy...sexy ladies of Rock'n'Roll! ...87/100

From: dany69 Date: November 22, 2019 at 21:35
This chicks can kick some serious a?? to some today's band by FAR,,,,, Killer CD

From: Tollitiger Date: October 7, 2020 at 1:02
What an Great Album this is ,i think is the greatest hard-rock album by an all female group ever

From: Auslander Date: March 8, 2021 at 4:24
Why Call it Love is the standout track on this one. Melodic, with female gang background vocals and harmonies, and a really gritty female lead vocal. This album is one of my favourite, if not most favourite, all female rock albums. I think I like it more than Vixen cause it has a harder sound and the lead vocalist has a rasp to her voice, a little bit Bonnie Tyler-esque. It also rocks pretty hard in that 80s style that I love. Overall the sound is like The Bangles if they played hard rock. Might not be a good description but if you pick up this album you won't be disappointed. Hey, and on International Women's Day today you could still rock out while supporting the cause! The cause of 80s hard rock, of course.
