A satisfying album,
This review is from: Creatures of the Night (Audio CD)
Creatures of the Night was released in 1982. It is Kiss' tenth studio album. Nine tracks are contained; one of these--"I Still Love You"--is a power ballad. Overall, I think the album's songwriting is worthy, the musicianship is tight, and the sound quality is satisfying. The material is in a straight-ahead hard rock musical direction. My favorite songs are "Creatures of the Night," "I Love It Loud," and "I Still Love You." I like the backing vocals on the refrain of "Creatures of the Night." Gene Simmons' industrious, no-holds-barred vocals, Eric Carr's driving, in-your-face, memorable drumming, a captivating chant, and an indelible chorus make "I Love It Loud" a remarkable, unforgettable composition. The well-written power ballad "I Still Love You" displays a nice guitar solo. Examples of other cuts I enjoy are "Saint and Sinner" and "War Machine." "Saint and Sinner" sports an engaging guitar solo with an interesting-sounding tone, while "War Machine" provides pleasing rhythm guitar work. The song lyrics are included in the CD insert. An informative essay is behind the CD tray. As for the album cover illustration, it is cool. The disc is almost 39 minutes. Creatures of the Night is a recommendable piece of work.
