AllMusic Review by

A slight return to form for the Mission, Blue suffers from being too little, too late. The greater part of their fan base had dissolved in the wake of the pedestrian Masque, and goth rock itself had mutated into the more metal-influenced stylings of bands such as Type O Negative. Although the songwriting is a step up from the previous two albums, the sound is still hopelessly dated. Songs like "Drown In Blue" and "Dying Room" might please the diehard Mission fans, but it's unlikely the band will make any new fans with this record.
