Blast is the debut solo album by the British musician Holly Johnson of Frankie Goes to Hollywood. It was released in 1989 and reached No. 1 in the UK Albums Chart and sold over 300,000 copies making it platinum. The album stayed on the charts for 17 weeks. The album features the hits "Love Train", "Americanos", "Atomic City" and "Heavens Here". The album was re-released in November 2009 and again in November 2010.
Like it or not, if longtime fans felt that Johnson's personality lost a bit of its color, especially its rudeness, Blast demonstrated his skills for larger-than-life hooks and insatiable brass-buffered electro cabaret had hardly diminished.
