5.0 out of 5 stars good but slipping not bands fault April 12 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i blame this album on the production which is too overproduced and sounds more like a hair metal band kind of production job. Midnite maniac is a very good song, but they hardly even play it live anymore. Lacklustre songs and a rather poor cover of ballroom blitz is another mistake. After the platinum success of headhunter great things could have happened to krokus, but ultimately this album and change of address would essentially sink their career in north america. Very sad for such a good band who have put out some good comeback albums over the last 30 yrs.

A great metal album, these guys and Ratt were 2 bands along with Sammy Hagars solo stuff, that I first listened to back in 1985...so much good metal then...
the opening riff for midnite maniac sets the tone for this album. This is not Fun metal, not dark metal, not progressive metal, it's just a little bit of everything, mostly driving guitars, GREAT RIFFS and pounding drums and bass, and the vocals screech with as much intensity as AC/DC or Cinderella. Download a song or to and check it out, if ya like it then buy it, If you're a fan of metal you have to get this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live The 80's Rock!! Jan. 16 2002
Format:Audio CD
Krokus/Blitz: without a dought is the best album Krokus ever made.It's a rock n'roll master piece..If you never heard them before I would have to say they have the AC/DC sound going for them....It's classic 80's rock at it's best!! If your a big fan of the 80's rock era you have to give Krokus a try..you won't be disapointed!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Driving Music April 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While it may not be cool anymore to like bands such as Krokus, I still love this record...they weren't the best band ever, but there are really great songs on this album, and it has some absolutely awesome production. High points include "Rock The Nation," "Hot Stuff," "Midnite Maniac," and "Our Love." The only song I hate on this CD is the cover of Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz," which is a lame song no matter who does it. Pop this one in on a warm day, roll down the windows, let your mullet fly and crank it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Shining Star in the Dawn of the Metal Age July 24 2000
By : zeiker : - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the most unsung bands of its time - Krokus was a standout long before metal became mainstream. IMO, Headhunter started it all and the band peaked in 1984 with the Blitz. Long before the hair bands adorned MTV's Headbanger's Ball, these guys pumped out an album that had 9 driving, well-produced, catchy tunes. Vocals flow lock-step with the rhythm, and Fernando's lead guitar and Jeff's percussion are stellar and some of the most underrated of their era. Storace's vocals appear to many as AC/DC wanna-be, though the total Krokus package is beyond comparison. Truly one of the albums that defined the band (pick up Headhunter, Change of Address, and Heart Attack for the others, in that order), The Blitz features Midnight Maniac, Boy's Night Out, Our Love, Ballroom Blitz, and Rock the Nation. -- Damn I miss these Guys...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Black album of krokus Sept. 25 2005
By ogils - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok I know Krokus weren't the most talented or original band that came out on the rock scene But who cares what matters is there are some catchy tunes on this album that get you singing and headbanging isn't that what 80's rock all about catchy tunes, singable choruses and crunchy riffs. This album was the first mainstream album that did loose some of their die hard metal audience just like what happened when MetallicA released their black album. Anyway there are some goodl Krokus songs like Our Love (will never die), Rock the Nation, Hot Stuff and their of The Sweets Ballroom blitz. If you are an 80's metal lover then go and buy this album but if you are more of a die hard rock fan then approach this album with caution

4.0 out of 5 stars Blitzkrieg... April 13 2000
By Bete Noire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Simply the best,1984's'The Blitz'represented the pinnacle of Krokus's career,with fantastic grooves a la old AC/DC-and Storace's vocals,too-attitude,super tight playing,and merciless songs that just added fuel to the fire and kept going.And this is only one of the great albums that came out in 1984...
