Product Description

Certified at 1 million units by the RIAA. (2/01)

Amazon.com

Probably the best album from sadly defunct hard-rockers Kix. Never overwhelmingly popular, their only major hit (the anti-suicide ballad "Don't Close Your Eyes") is on this album. It's a radical departure from most of their material, which consisted mainly of good-time, party-on pop metal infused with genuine smarts and affection for the music. Hailing from Maryland, they incorporated the L.A. glam style into their music while maintaining a grittier edge that owed a good deal to AC/DC. This mix serves them very well on songs like "Get It While It's Hot," "Cold Blood," "Boomerang," "Dirty Boys," and the title track. With considerably more substance than most 1980s pop metal, this album holds up much better than its contemporaries. --Genevieve Williams

I loved this CD when it came out in 1989. That was the first time I have even heard of the band and the only reason I did is because of the power ballad "Don't Close Your Eyes" A great song and the bands only top 40 hit. The whole damn CD rocks! Now I know that these guys were not the most original band to ever come along, but there can really only be one original, so who really cares. Do you really think Warrant, or 3 Doors Down are original? No and they sold millions. If you give a listen, you'll see how tight the band plays and how well the songs are writen.

Fast-forward to 1995. I was lucky enough to play baseball in the hometown of KIX, Hagerstown, MD. I saw they were still reveered in their hometown with the release of their new Album. I was even lucky enough to see them live. And what a live show. Maybe one of the best live bands ever, or atleast that I ever seen. The sad part is that the band broke up shortly after that tour

Fast-forward 2004. almost 10 years later the band re-united for a few shows in PA and MD. Once again, I was luck enough to see them play. 10 years later and they haven't lost a step.

This record is the bands best and the band maybe the most under-rated of all-time. Buy this and if you agree that it is as good as I say don't be afraid to go after everything the band recorded(ok, maybe stay away from cool kids)you won't be sorry

By the time Kix put out this album we were well aware of their ability to rock but the anti suicide ballad " Don't Close Your Eye's" was a instant classic & we all knew it the first time we heard it!!! Kix was a good time, fun Hard Rock band that as kids we fell in love with but we never took them as serious as other Hard Rock bands at the time. Don't Close Your Eye's would forever cement Kix on the radio air waves & as a band to be taking a second listen to. All these years later it would be easy to dismiss them & lump them up with the plethora of Hair Bands that emerged in the 80's but when you start to take a closer look at the time frame & the quality of their music you begin to realize they were a step ahead of many of the hair bands of which only a few really had lasting talent.

A great release from an under-rated band. I had the good fortune to see Kix live many times as I lived in the VA/DC/MD area. If you are looking for a CD that is guaranteed to get you back into the "hair band crank it up and let's party" mood, Blow My Fuse is an excellent choice.

While stationed in Japan a friend gave me a copied cassette version of this album/cd. Althought the release date is 1989, I had it in 1987?? Not sure how, he said he had a friend in the band. From the first time I listened to it I was hooked. After returning to the states in NC, I had the chance to see them live at The Attic in Greenville in 1988. What a show!! This album still ranks as a must have kick @ss disc for those of us that grew up in the era of hair metal and R&R. BUY IT!

Like other reviewers of this album have already stated this album rocks. I first heard the bands best song "Cold Blood" on the House of Hair Dee Snider Radio show and immediately wondered which artist is that. I had to knew because it is a killer song. I bought this album and love it. The rest of the album is steller, it rocks from start to finish. The only 2 songs not up to par are No Ring Around Rosie and Boomerang. Tracks 2,5,6 and 9 are just a blast crank it up.....This album gets a lot of play in my vast CD collection and is a definate go to on a sunny day driving in the car with the top down.

In my opinion this is one of the greatest hard rock albums of all time. You can put it in and listen to it from begining to end, the songs are just to good to skip. You my not know most of these songs but they are worth a listen. I would call this one a must have for a hard rock fan of any era. Kix, we need you guys to get back together and help bring straight ahead rock'n'roll back to the forefront.

In listening to the history of Kix, from the Shooz to the Generators, this album is a bit of a musical departure for the band. Missing are the tongue-in-cheek euphemisms and naughty wordplay that is Kix's mantra. The band really cuts their teeth on edgy, gritty songs such as "Get it While it's Hot" and "Don't Close Your Eyes" (a HAVE TO HAVE ballad). You can't go wrong with this disc!

This is one of KIX's best known albums. Kix's lead singer, Steve Whiteman, now has a new band named Funny Money which plays the MD, PA, VA area. funnymoneyband . com They do a fair number of Kix covers along with their new material. KIX is now doing periodic reunion shows with 4 of the 5 original memebers, including Steve Whiteman. Fantastic live band!
