Slightly overrated but still welcome comeback album

""Blues" is Glenn Hughes' early '90s comeback bid, after several years of being by and large out of the public eye. It seems that during the whole grunge period it was hard for one of the world's pre-eminent soulful hard rock singers to find his niche, so he released this album of him doing blues-type tunes backed by a slew of LA guitarists (Mick Mars, Mark Kendall, Warren deMartini, etc.) The result is a mostly fun album, although some of the songwriting is somewhat derivative (shades of Stevie Ray Vaughn can definitely be heard in places). Of course, Glenn's voice is as strong as ever. It's a pity he didn't play more bass on it. I do not mean to knock the album, 3 1/2 stars is more on the mark, but as the '90s went on his albums became more daring (especially Addiction), and he is obviously a source of pride for Brummies everywhere."
A new twist in blues music

"As a old fan of blues music with a picky taste for oldies such as T-bone Walker, Robert Johnson and others, I'm not sure this is a TRUE blues CD. But Glenn's stunning vocals, well-played songs and hard feelings from a rock star are all here. Not easy listening for hard rock fans, not easy for old blues lovers, but truly a masterpiece of fusion, this album overrates this kind of hard rock-blues experiments made until now. I wonder why you haven't kept the direction doin' such low profile CDs as The Way It Is, which is clearly a step backwards. For when an all-new recording of the phenomenal Phenomena album??"
First full blown Glenn Hughes album in a decade

"Glenn Hughes ex-bassplayer/singer from British outfits Trapeze and Deep Purple struggled during most parts of the 80's. At the end of 1991 Glenn nearly died. He decided to clean up his act and got the chance of Mike Varney to record a (heavy) blues based album to excorcise his demons. Hughes brings in an extraordinary amount of guitarists. He himself plays some bass and sings everything. Though very skilled they are not in the same league as the one's Paul Rodgers used. And also the songs are pretty heavy, Zeppelin influenced almost. But Glenn's singing is very convincing and that is what we're here for aren't we?? He can basically sing everything, but here you will find blues based hard-rock. Interesting guitarplayer on this album is Paul Pesco, who worked with Madonna. Pesco was also part of a one-off Trapeze gig Glenn did in New York in 1994. A good album for Glenn to re-establish himself in the music industry."
