"This CD (album) is one of my all time favorites and if you are into anything like early BonJovi, Cinderella, Autograph, Kix, or Ratt I think you would really like this disc. Every Song on here is winner - the disc is a cool listen from start to finish. It is a fun, vibrant, timeless cd that keeps me coming back 18 years later!This cd was going for $80-100 before this re-release - don't miss out -- this thing is really worth it."

"Do you like 80's hair metal, but are sick of listening to "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Slippery When Wet" for the thousandth time? Well good news....re-issues of one of the most talented, but overlooked bands, Black n Blue are now available. I wore out my cassettes I owned of "Without Love", "Nasty Nasty" and the self titled debut album around the time Clinton was first elected and have been waiting for the cd re-issues. All of the albums still sound great, you will be banging your head and playing air guitar all the way to work. "Without Love" seems to have the reputation of being BnB's "pop" album, and while it does seem the music is a bit more commercialized, it is still a really good album. "Strange Things" may be BnB's best tune, the hook, the catchy chorus, a true 80's metal-head delight. If you are tired of the retread music offered today..then take the time to discover some of the bands you may have missed the first go around. Sure....you know as soon as the opening guitar chord hits that you are listening to music that could only have come out during the Reagan era...so what? These guys had talent, and the music is still fun. Break out the Spandex, get 2 or 3 bottles of hairspray for that big hair look, and rock out like it's 1986!!!"

"I loved this album the second I slapped it on. It's more pop sounding but they do it well. To say it's the worst album, wrong for sure, that one will always be In Heat. Miss Mystery is mellow but it flows so good (Loved the video) Nature Of The Beach reminds me of summer and always will. Without love has a great hook and one of my favs. Yes it could've rocked a little more but that's my only critisism. CAN'T WAIT FOR HELL YA to come out.AND FOR THE LAST TIME, STOP COMPARING THESE GUYS TO KISS, THEY DO NOT SOUND ANYTHING LIKE THEM."
