Easily The Cross' best album!

Songs like Hand Of Fools and Life Changes are arguably the best tracks The Cross ever recorded.

Where to buy it? Hmmm... record fairs in central europe, Ebay...

jeroen is right, it's the best The Cross album and probably one of the best Queen related solo albums!

Hand Of Fools, The Also Rans, New Dark Ages etc. - are fabulous tracks. Worth to find, really!

Over-rated - Bad Attitude is the only notable in my opinion. Life changes seems forced, phony and states the obvious ... to me

I really like NEW DARK AGES! And I hated Shove It...
The Spike's tracks are awful (extremely naive) but... it's all right, not far from HAPPINESS in style

Germany, Austria and Belgium!

And why it was only released there was nothing more but a legal issue. Records being released in just one or two territories doesn't neceserraly say anything about the quality of the music nor the commercial potential of a record.

I like the whole album, although I'm not sure it's my favourite Cross album. Other than Shove It, The Cross made generally excellent albums, it's just a shame that they were largely ignored by the record buying public. Blue Rock is a very good product...if you can get your hands on it!
