KISS (Crazy Nights) 1987





The music climate had changed drastically by 1987. This was at the peak of hair metal and power ballads and lots of keyboard-influenced songs were dominating the airwaves. KISS was not immune to this and just like every other time before, tried to jump on it's band wagon. Big mistake. KISS and Keyboards are not a happy marriage. Years earilier they had a pretty good song with Christine Sixteen on the Love Gun album. But that was with a piano and it was still a rock boogie song. Here, it's just a bit much with the keyboards.

Overall, the production was garbage as they decided to make the most "pop" oriented album up to now. There's a couple of songs that are ok, but the majority of Crazy Nights is pretty forgettable. This gets a 1 star bump only for Bruce Kulick's opening guitar intro/solo for No, No, No. As for the rest of the song itself. No, No, No indeed.

Fave Songs: Good Girl Gone Bad. Album cover is better than Asylum, but still needs some work on getting creative once again.
