Black N Blue

I’ll admit it, I love Black N Blue but I don’t think they ever delivered on the potential that their debut album showed. Maybe it’s just me, but they always came across as a real metal band that were struggling to find their identity.
The debut album was a belter. The follow up sounded good, but the songs just weren’t there (although Without Love is bizarrely considered their best by some). Nasty, Nasty was a real return to form and then they dropped the ball with the insipid In Heat. I was really disappointed to read that they were teaming up with Gene Simmons for Nasty, Nasty. I’ve never been a Gene fan, either in his day job or when he’s moonlighting as a producer. But Nasty, Nasty actually sounded good and was a really strong album......but by then I think the band had missed their shot.
Without Love, with it’s shift in style, in my opinion is the album that cost them a place in the bigger league. Had it been more in the vein of their debut I think it would have served the band better.

I saw them touring the debut at Hammersmith Odeon supporting Whitesnake and they were fantastic. I really thought they were all set for the big time. Funny how things go, isn’t it?

Anyone else a fan? What do you think went wrong?
