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.

Although Blast doesn't have the same bite and edge as the material of Frankie Goes to Hollywood, each track makes up for a delectable slice of easy-going pop. There's a nice range of tracks to keep things interesting. Take the funky, energetic opener Atomic City, co-written with the excellent and very underrated Dan Hartman, which is the most FGTH-like piece on Blast. On the other hand pop perfection doesn't come much better than the jolly, bright Love Train, the catchy Americanos, and the lush Heaven's Here.

Well received for an offshoot, Blast had all the trappings of a self-possessed number one, and for good reason - there were few crass ballads to speak of other than the sullen glam of "Feel Good," while Johnson continued to have a field day with disco, synth rock, bubblegum, new wave, and carnival pop. 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.

Upon the release of the Blast album, American newspaper Record-Journal stated "Best songs are cuts such as "Love Train," where Holly shows that soul and dance music are not necessarily exclusive of each other. If Simply Red had any energy these days, this is how Mick Hucknall would sound. In a short 1989 Record Mirror article and quiz based on Johnson and the release of the remix album Hollelujah, the article spoke of the Frankie Knuckles remix "Love Train (Americanos Big Beat 109 BPM Version)", stating "While we're waiting for the next album, there's the intriguing release of a remix album of Holly's singles titled "Hollelujah", featuring three previously. unreleased remixes and the acclaimed Frankie Knuckles mix of his debut single "Love Train".
