5.0 out of 5 stars BRIGHT LIGHTS BECKON AGAIN? January 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The most accessible Aldo Nova release came at the dawn of the ninties. Assisted by his friendship with Jon Bon Jovi in production and songwriting the only downside could be that this is very much like a Bon Jovi album. It is a small consideration because the album is so good it becomes a mute point. But trust me you do think it when you first hear it. I believe Nova and Bon Jovi had written together for the "Young Guns II" CD and this may be the continued efforts of those sessions. Certainly the music does all the talking with the Sweet-like title track (complete with Ballroom Blitz style mid vocal section) and early highlight "Medicine Man" which is very atmospheric with a hypnotic Indian chant aspect. "Bang Bang" is a little annoying and does indeed sound like a "New Jersey" cast off. The Nova of the "Twitch" era returns in "Someday" which is a triumph down to its heart felt words and their heart felt delivery, a big power pop ballad. "Young Love" is street poetry in the Jovi-esque "Livin On A prayer" Westside Story kind of way. It's hard not too like. "Modern World" talks about the many things not to like about modern life in America and is the deepest thing lyrically on offer complete with it's anger. "This Ain't Love" is the least successful outing on this release trying a little too hard to be late eighties hair rock that had already fallen from grace. "Hey Ronnie" is another love on the roof tops ditty and although it is pure schmaltz you can't help but fall in love with it and surely must be another highlight. "Touch of Madness" and "Brightlights" close things out with the closing cut being the best of the two ending things in similar style to how it all began at track one, a guitar workout. A very good release and certainly recommended for Aldo and Bon Jovi fans alike. All but forgotten by the rush towards the doom and gloom of grunge. Buy it to play whilst driving at fast speeds in the car and too remind you that music can be fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves more... April 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD deserves more..Aldo Nova deserves more..more credit, more respect both as a musician and a singer.
This is a great rock CD. The Bon Jovi influence is unmistakable. Which gives this CD a Bon Jovi meets Loverboy feel. You won't find any long jams or lightning fast finger, screeching guitar work, but what you do find is 10 rock solid songs. There is not a dud in lot. Although there is not a huge song like "Fantasy", from his debut, each song can stand on it's own and could have been released as a single, there are no filler songs here. Put them all together in one CD and you have a great "pop metal" rocker. Personally, the song "Hey Ronnie" is a standout for me.
You just can't go wrong with this one. If you liked Aldo Nova's debut, then I guarantee that you will love this one. Even if you have never heard Aldo Nova before, this CD deserves a listen.
Rock on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous album for Aldo Nova August 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Released in 1991, "Blood On The Bricks" is an awesome tribute to days gone by. The problem for Aldo Nova was, this record was released at the absolute tail-end of the hair-metal craze of the late 80's /early 90's. However, in no way did that stop this dude from cranking out one teriffic melodic rock record.

I have the feeling that a large part of the records sound and appeal is owed in large part to one Jon Bon Jovi. In fact, the album sounds much like a lost Bon Jovi record. That should tell you just about everything you need to know about the quality of the album, but if it doesn't, i'll do my best to convince you how amazing it is. The thing I liked most was the ability for every song to be "single quality". No song in my mind is filler, they're all good tracks, and one could easily imagine any ofthese songs being monster videos on MTV. Bon Jovi's writing shines through on a majority of these songs. The heartfelt ballads and tales of teenage youth scream Jon's name, and you almost wonder why some of these songs weren't kept for a Bon Jovi record. Every song is strong throughout the record, however, these are my favorites. "Blood On The Bricks", "Medicine Man", "Ronnie's Song", "Someday" and "Bang Bang" all top my list, but you just can't go wrong this baby!

If you don't own this album already, do yourself a solid and buy it now. I highly recommend this to all fans of melodic rock or hair-metal music, but even fans of pop might dig it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars blew me away November 29, 2004
By LBL
Format:Audio CD
I just picked this up from the bargain bin in the local music store after hearing that ANova was a metal guitarist. This is the best Bon Jovi album and Bon Jovi (the band) doesn't even play here!

I can't believe this CD wasn't well publicized, it must be one of the best 80's melodic releases I have ever heard. Up there with Giant as best undiscovered rock gems!

Originally released in 1991, Blood on the Bricks was the fourth album from Canadian singer/guitarist/keyboardist Aldo Nova. Nowhere near as popular as his self-titled 1982 debut (and the hit single "Fantasy"), the overlooked Blood on the Bricks was still one of Nova's better releases.

Blood on the Bricks was a comeback album for Aldo Nova. He had been largely absent as a solo artist since his 1985 album Twitch (also fantastic, also underrated), but remained active as a songwriter and producer. For this album, Nova was assisted by none other than Jon Bon Jovi, who provided songwriting support, backing vocals and even a record label. Bass duties were handled by future American Idol judge Randy Jackson.

Not surprisingly, Blood on the Bricks has a lot in common with the arena-rocking Bon Jovi albums that came out around that time. I also hear similarities to bands like Bad English and Brian Howe era Bad Company. It's an incredibly melodic rock album with plenty of catchy hooks and shout-along choruses, and just enough in the way of keyboards. Nova's voice is in fine shape, and when he launches into a guitar solo you suddenly remember how this AOR hitmaker could totally smoke on guitar. The rocking title track and the ballad "Someday" were the singles, but nearly all of the songs on this album could have been hits.

Sadly, Blood on the Bricks did not gain Nova much attention or popularity. Nova went back to behind-the-scenes work, much to melodic rock fans' regret. If you're a fan of the late `80s melodic rock sound, or just remember Aldo Nova from the "Fantasy" days, you'd do well to give this album a try. It's a real melodic rock gem.
