KISS - "Creatures Of The Night" (1982)

Not a bad heavy rock record really. It's definitely the heaviest thing they'd done to the time.

3.5/5

Yeh, but Chemical Wedding came out a year later, so it's pretty damn impressive that he released two really strong albums in 12 months. Nobody was really expecting that then.

N.P Disturbed Evolution

Not really a fan of this album but ''Anarchy Divine'' and ''Shades of Heavenly Death'' are top notch tunes.

^^Yet another awkward attempt by an aging metal band to delve into more commercial territory in 2018. Godsmack and Machine Head were the other not so notable examples. This album is probably less convincing than either When Legends Rise or Catharsis though because it doesn't fully commit to the idea of making a legitimate progression. It's basically watered down Disturbed-by-numbers songs like Are You Ready mixed in with soft radio type ballads that are generic and overwrought and ultimately rather tedious. The production is quite flat at times too and there is a conspicuous lack of energy.

I much preferred Disturbed when they were loud and dumb rather than soft and dumb. 'Maturity' doesn't really suit them, and it's partially because what they are trying to pass off as maturity is just middling,middle of the road bollocks that older rockers veer towards when they want to appear 'adult' yet have no idea how to do it so they just follow a script. In this case, it's a tired old script that is frequently off-putting. There is even an overly earnest song on here about how life was before the internet and social media called 'In Another Time' that merely confirms the level of cluelessness on display. Musically it isn't too bad, but the lyrics are just awful.

My prediction is that this album will tank and the band will either disband or head back to the lab quickly for the sake of damage control.

5/10, and that's only because I have a higher tolerance for them than most. Their albums tend to grow on me, but I have a feeling this one won't. The fact that Draiman referred to it as their 'Black album', or something to that effect, makes it even worse. The slower/softer songs on that album were built around strong melodies that are sorely lacking from these stale offerings.

I bought this fucker too! Fuck me! :lol:

Crowbar - Sonic Excess In Its Purest Form

This is slab-like and juicy, to follow their weakest record "Equilbrium" which was an easy 2/5. Relieved when this dropped. Has held up really well.
