5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, but with substance. Fantastic album., 2 July 2008

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Blood, Fire & Love (Audio CD)
I bought this years ago when it first came out. Never heard of them, never heard a track. I came across it in a record shop and loved the cover! It was their famous indian headress on a skull. It was silver embossed on a satin black sleeve. I bought it on the strength of that plus it seemed to have attitude streaming from it (i am from punk era and love early punk rock, Ruts, Ramones, UK Subs, SLF etc, plus early Van Halen, early Iron Maiden etc) But this album just blew me away when i first heard it. Every single track is strong. Not a weak song on it.
The music is at times melodic but make no mistake, still extremly powerful! This was their debut album and this ranks as one of the best bebuts ever by any band. Absolutely essential to any collection by anyone who knows anything about music. Faultless.
I was fortunate enough to see this band live when i lived in U.K (i live in Oz now) and by christ, they were awsome.
I cannot give any comparison to whom they sound like because its unique really.
I defy anyone who likes rock music to not like this in any way. Brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last days of the Great Dragons, 17 Aug 2012
This review is from: Blood Fire and Live (Audio CD)
The Almighty's Debut Album "Blood Fire & Love" has some great songs on it, but the production is pretty poor (I think someone forgot to plug in the Bass Guitar), especially when the band performed the tracks live.
So Ricky Warwick decided to release this mini-live record consisting of "Full-force Loving Machine", "You've gone Wild", "Blood Fire & Love", "Destroyed", "Wild & Wonderful", "Resurrection Mutha", & finishing with Bachmen Turner overdrives "You ain't seen nothing yet".
It's quite a hard thing to pull off a good live record, but the almighty absolutely nailed it with this one & defiantly launched their career off the back of it.
So if you want a good example of British hard rock from the late 1980's, you could do a lot worse that checking out the album . Besides any record with "You ain't see nothing yet" on it, has got to be something special!

Thoughts on the decline of the live rock album:

It is amazing that in the 70's & 80's virtually all rock band released a live record after Fourth studio album, pretty much without exception. Now the quality of these records varied considerably from classic Iron Maiden's "Live After Death" & AD/CD's "If you want blood" , to the not so classic Motorhead's "No sleep at all" & The Black Crowes "Live" .
But after Nirvana arrived, the live album quickly became redundant. It is strange how something can be imbedded in the fabric of music for so long, can simple disappear almost overnight.
Oh well
But this album is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Almighty-blood, fire & love., 1 Jan 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood, Fire & Love (Audio CD)
This album came out in 1989. A couple of video's got alot of airplay on MTV from Ricky Warwick's missus Vanessa. Obviously that gave them a head start but I don't think that mattered too much anyway cos it's a belter of an album. It's basically biker rock but heavier, if you love bands like Circus Of Power you'll love this.
