From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: August 30, 2002 at 17:04
Gran sorpresa para mi este grupo.Tiene la fuerza de Skid Row, y tiene un gran cantante. Recomendado si te gusta el Hard Rock.

From: nitrodoll Date: September 2, 2002 at 12:05
a crying shame nothing big happened with this band, they had the potential..wrong country maybe? don't know but this album hasn't a weak moment... nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: James Date: September 4, 2002 at 21:24
Just found these guys and i am well pleased. Great 80's hard rock in the style of Bon Jovi. I would say pick this alubm up if you find it, if Bon Jovi, Firehouse, Danger Danger....are your style of music.

From: Jay Date: November 2, 2002 at 9:33
one of the best bands to come out of Britain, bought this in record years ago a must buy if you like Bon Jovi, White Lion or Danger Danger

From: weber Date: December 26, 2002 at 13:22
a cool hard rock album.

From: 2planet3 Date: May 22, 2003 at 18:02
Uno de los mejores discos de hard melódico con teclados y que casi nadie conoce!! Si te gustan Shy, estos son incluso mejores

From: Bill Dick Date: September 7, 2003 at 9:15
Just picked this album up at a record fair and bloody hell what a find these guys need to get it back together and kick some more arse .

From: robert Date: December 14, 2003 at 22:05
No esta mal, pero pa ser del 89' esperaba mas... 5'5 d 10!!

From: Mallorca´s rock Date: January 2, 2004 at 13:04
Tal vez el cd empieza con unos temas brutales y acaba de mas a menos... 7.5/10

Another great UK AOR / hard rock / Melodic band...if you are looking for that cd e-mail wildangelfree69@hotmail.com

From: Geoff Date: June 11, 2004 at 3:45
Glad to see some like-minded people here. I'm surprised at how low the rating at the top of the page is, because this is as good as it gets. A flawless and riff heavy melodic hard rock album of the highest order. I love it because before you get into any of the songs the opening riff assures you you're in for the highest quality of songs. Just brilliant! Nothing else to say.

From: BWH"Indonesia Date: August 24, 2004 at 9:20
If you like Blu Blud, check out After Hours then.

From: MIKI - BCN Date: December 28, 2004 at 15:56
Lo descubrí por casualidad hace 14 años en el 90, entré en una tienda de discos de Andorra, les ví las pintas de la portada y me lo quedé sin saber como sonaba, aluciné!!! es de lo mejorcito que he oido, es un hard-oar melódico increíble a la altura de Dare (Out of the silence), 91 suite (91 suite), Europe (Out of this world)....etc, y es cierto, que casi nadie lo conoce, lo recomiendo a quien puede conseguirlo (el único sitio que conozco donde se puede conseguir es aquí a traves del harmonies,

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 27, 2005 at 16:37
Killer, A Classic Hard Melodic/AOR, Remember me a White Sister Running Back, Don't Turn Out the Light, Never Rains in England mis favoritas, Una mezcla entre Shy y White Sister, un album Completo, otra joya del 89, Recomendado 100%. Saludos desde Ica-Peru. Avisados Todo un clasico en este genero.

From: z4roxx Date: February 27, 2005 at 19:34
That's a killer melodick cd!I find these guys near to early Danger Danger IMO.No fillers just monster stuff!!Unfortunately I find the production not at the same level of their songwriting,just a bit confused.BTW it's a killer cd,9.5/10!

From: juan carlos Date: June 7, 2006 at 0:25
Muy buenas canciones! "don´t turn out the light" es un trallazo de tema, y "i can´t wait" es un tema fino, muy bueno! son mis dos temas favoritos. La 6 y la 10 son las que bajan la talla del album un poco, el resto de temas si que te deben gustar pues es un Hardrock excelente. La voz es buena pero no de mis favoritas y la producción le faltó un mejora acorde con la música. Buenos solos, los coros tambien O.K. super-recomendado. 8.8/10

From: feiying43 Date: July 20, 2006 at 13:45
So damned cool! Really one of the most underrated album. Every song kicks asses. Get it for 25euros & it's worth the sum!

From: aTomiK Date: July 20, 2006 at 14:23
Great cd! 6 killer songs and 4 good ones. They just don´t do it like this in England anymore.

From: FRATELLO Date: September 14, 2006 at 9:35
In love from first spin. Fantastic album. Heard One More Night on one of the demos compilations and couldn't even imagine these guys released an album.

From: metalhead4life Date: December 13, 2006 at 14:32
Pretty good album; actually a lot of good/cool songs on here; a shame the singer isn't the best; his voice is decent and he has very limited range; would have definitely been a better album if the singer was better. Nevertheless, an album worth picking up. A few songs sound better than others as far as the singer goes but his voice is bearable; Don't Turn Out the Lights is a killer song.

From: lalorock Date: December 21, 2006 at 22:26
Impresionante album de hard rock melódico,canciones llenas de fuerza caso de la 1,3(excelente guitarra y teclados)Running back es más aor junto con Never rains in England el cual posee unos coros maravillosos,todo el disco es excelente y se divide en canciones con caña como dicen los españoles y otras más en plan aor, no tiene desperdicio ningun tema,si buscas hard rock melodico con sus toques aor este es tu grupo, 9/10.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 14, 2007 at 22:07
Tremendo albun de Melodic HardRock/Aor CARAJO!! temas de buen nivel con sonidos misteriosos muy melodicos y una voz que va con todo el stylo que lo sabe hacer Blue Blud sencillamente original, brillante, es musica para extraterrestres.....

From: Aor/HardRock Date: October 18, 2007 at 18:41
Extraordinario album de Rock melodic/AOR , este album me lo paso un amigo y la verdad que es super album , un album que no debe faltar en tu coleccion , "Love Grows Wild (In The Heat)" "Never Rains In England" asi que obligado a tenerlo porque es un tremendo album..9.5/10.

From: jan_vexel Date: November 1, 2007 at 20:51
you can find in youtube the video for "never rains in england",and its a different version,from the "liquor'n'poker" ep of the same band.interesting,someone ad this on this site.by the way "the big noise"is top melodic hard rock album-9.5/10

From: shoemaker Date: February 1, 2008 at 9:59
This is a good melodic hardrock album. If you like Treat, Fate or 220 Volt you could risk an ear.

From: camelot66 Date: April 10, 2008 at 9:47
This cd is just absolutly fantastic,it can,t get much better than this. It took me many years to fianally get a copy of Blue Blud,it is unbelivably good if you love Melodic Rock with a slight hint towards great AOR you will be mesmarized by this Gemm,do yourself a big favour a buy this Album you will never regret it,just breathtaking stuff.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 5, 2010 at 20:48
Fans of Tobruk,Garrison,Fastway,Black Rose and Midnight Blue will love this!(as much as i did!)..solid album with great songs(probably Kane's voice sounds saturated but honestly well performed).."One More Night" is a good opener,"Running Back" and "Don't Turn Out The Light" became instant faves,"Love Grows Wild(In The Heat)" is a highlight,"Never rains In England" is a killer number,"Secret Lover" is a solid one,"My Idea Of Heaven" just love this song along with "I Can't Wait"...to finish the album,another killer song,"Road To Ruin"..buy this album you won't regret it!.92/100

From: JapLance Date: September 28, 2011 at 13:57
I got this CD back in the days, and didn't like it at all, perhaps too "soft" to someone used to listen to Scorpions, Accept, Iron Maiden etc. And now, like 20 years later, I heard one of the songs listening to an Internet radio station and thought "I still keep this CD somewhere". Dusted it off and played again, not bad at all. Very keyboard-oriented, bur enjoyable nevertheless. I'd rate it at 7/10.

From: hair metal again Date: January 22, 2012 at 13:27
excellent debut by one of UK s finest!commercial hard rock with perfect balance between guitars & keys,with powerful but also sensational vocs!all the songs are very good and especially "can t wait" and " running back".THE BIG NOISE should have make more impact back then and i consider it essential!

From: 123charpenay Date: October 30, 2013 at 15:04
it s not a "big noise" but a great noise.musically it s very strong superb guitars and keyboards,excellent songs but...the singer ruins the record,it s a pity or a shame if you want, to have a so good music for so weak and limited singer.listen before buying (high price on eBay).

From: Diamonddave777 Date: May 8, 2021 at 17:21
