Another solid album by Kal, Doug, and the band. By this point, there's a real band, so it doesn't feel like a solo project like the previous album. Like the last one, there isn't any groundbreaking effort made on Blood, but there's a wide variety of influences apparent in the songwriting, and is a little more ambitious. If nothing else, I'd recommend the album on Doug Aldrich's playing alone! Highly recommended! (8.5 out of 10)

From: dokkendude Date: April 29, 2002 at 22:58
Highly recomend this one better songwritting and doug really steps out

From: Desslar Date: April 30, 2002 at 19:42
Not really very interesting. A few good songs in a Whitesnake vein, but mostly a little on the slow side. Of course if they had had Coverdale singing it would have been a lot more engaging.

From: mic pue du nez Date: June 24, 2003 at 16:18
What a shitty album!!!!

From: mic pue du nez Date: June 24, 2003 at 16:18
just kidding this is a veryyy gooood album do you feel the fire burning?

From: Jade Date: December 6, 2003 at 20:43
This one is alot harder to get into because the production isnt as good and the songs are not as strong as the debut whatsoever. The theme of the cd is dark and there is more slow acoustic songs that go nowhere and some great song that rock but it seems the 90's alternative scene had an impact on the band as led by the nature of the songs but nonetheless it gets better with each listen.

I can't remember what I paid for this disc, But it was money lost. I thought it sucked so bad I gave it away.

From: charvel man Date: May 27, 2004 at 16:51
I'm pissed! I paid too much for this disc on ebay and it sucks! Doug is a great player, but this does not live up to what I expected. Bad disc avoid!!

From: Corwin Date: July 19, 2004 at 8:09
Absolute masterpiece ! One of the best discs with Doug Aldrich. Great songwriting and playing. Kal really knows how to sing, he sounds better than on the Lion albums. The overall mood of the CD is dark, and is expressed in an excellent way. "Servants of the Sun" and "Heart of Darkness" absolutely rock ! Great CD, highly recommended. It doesn't cost a lot of money (I paid 8 bucks for the japanese edition), and is much better than a lot of expensive CDs in the genre ...

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 10:46
Whoa!!! Please turn this one off before I lose all sense of direction. Masterpiece material. Doug does not disappoint.

Maybe I'm just biased because Swan/Aldrich is such a phenomenal team as well as being individually talented as hell, but I don't understand the negative reviews for this. Production could be better, but that being said, there are some fine tunes and some excellent playing throughout. Kinda like Lion, but with a darker vibe as mentioned above.

From: so-many-tears Date: December 27, 2006 at 16:52
Many people will find this cd very difficult. It is but you have to give it a couple of spins to see how good and well written it is. Takes time to see BMR is not Lion. They are looking for some other musical direction. This cd in my opinio is very good and has all the elements of a great cd. You can listen to Lion influences as well as Whitesnake and House of Lords. I really enjoy this album and I think it was the best album written by BMR. Doug IS THE MOST COMPLETE GUITAR PLAYER EVER.

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 1, 2007 at 14:02
This release has BMR fining their own sound and loosing the Lion sound. A little darker and moodier, but with more acoustic elements at the same time. At first listen you may not enjoy the change, but if you go back and just take in the album for what it really is, I think you'll find it to be the excellent release it really is. This is very good melodic rock, but it is not Lion anymore. This is a whole new entity and it's pretty damn good. Definitely worth a listen!

From: rbrigade Date: September 5, 2008 at 20:00
Every time I listen to it I get bored...Ok, Swan is a great singer, Doug is a great player, but the songwriting is just above average on this album. Most of the songs fall in the filler kategory. Tears in the dark is a nice tune. But not something outstanding. Doug can play fantastic...but are the solo's he's doing here really anything to die for? No way...If you like Swan just check Tytan, this was his magnum opus, hands down.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 3, 2013 at 19:13
A good follower but i prefer their debut Lion-ish style of songs release over this one..."Dangerous Game","Servants Of The Sun","Devil's Son","Blood On the Streets","Chains" & "Time Will Tell" are my faves in here...still quite recommended though...88/100

From: Wardy Date: April 25, 2015 at 10:00
Return to this one regularly, Blood a personal BMR fave, an album actually sounding better with age. Blood saw Aldrich huge on riffs & Swan at his usual great. Of course Blood was yet another release that while doing grand in Japan was sadly ignored by the masses, quite simply, Blood was as dark & topical as anything current, Swan possessing the kinda pipes to easily cross over into the age of flannel while losing none of that 80's magic. Will say it again, bands the likes of Bad Moon Rising, Spread Eagle Saigon Kick & War Babies etc could've straddled the grunge scene with ease & co-existed with those bands of the 90's with the right label backing *sigh* Anyway, with hardly a skip on offer, Devil's Son is a highlight, those big acoustic turn monsters popular fer their time, the Soul Asylum-like Servants Of The Sun, Blood On The Streets & the old school of Chains just a few examples of the quality Blood had to offer. Blood is as complete a record as these guys would offer, Rating 8.5
