5.0 out of 5 stars By far one of their best. July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album has everything a KISS album should have:hard rock anthems, fast-fingured guitar solos, explosive lyrics, heart-felt power balads and the fun spirit of KISS. If I were to recommend a KISS album to anyone it would be this one simply because its just a really fun album that has something for metal fans as well as ballad loving folks. Songs like "I'll Fight Hell to Hold You", "No,No,No", "Hell or High Water" and "Turn on the Night" all contain some of the best guitar work I've heard on a rock album and show that the band still had the same great sound after over 14 years of making music. If you're into depressing, boring and pompous Seattle garage drivel steer clear of this one, but if like high adrenaline, guitar-driven fun metal then this is a must have for your collection. Forget what some pompous self-rightous critic who listens to whatever they hear on corporate radio or M TV tells you, this is a great C.D. and if you like KISS, you'll love this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best since the classic years May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1978, I discovered Kiss and I was really hooked. They were mystical and cool in the eyes of a young boy, and they actually had great songs too. So it really hurts to see how bad they have taken care of the band. When Peter Criss, and later Ace Frehley left Kiss it sure was a tough blow even though Gene Simmons try to deny the impact from both Criss and Frehley. "CREATURES OF THE NIGHT" (1982) was alright but "LICK IT UP" (1983) and "ANIMALIZE" (1984) were rather lame. With "ASYLUM" (1985), Kiss got a bit better, but they were still very far from former heights.
"CRAZY NIGHTS" (1987) is really a good album. Most of the songs are very appealing even though it's harmless pop metal most of the time. "I'll fight hell to hold you", "My way", "Good girl gone bad", and "Hell or high water" are all strong tunes, and there are in fact no real low marks on this album. Gene Simmons seem more focused than in a long time, and Paul Stanley have finally gone for a less strained singing style. I would say that "CRAZY NIGHTS" is the best effort since the classic years.
Since the musical climate, what's a fashionable and up to date change all the time, one must put every single album in its context. By 1987's standard this is a very good effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Crazy Kiss Album Feb. 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, first off, let me point out that this was my first ever Kiss album so I'm somewhat partial to it. But in the years since I have come to be well aquainted with their entire catalog and you'd be surprised how well this one measures up. With the glaring exception of two tracks that should have been left off completely, "Crazy Nights" is a Kiss album that fitted in comfortably with the times. It could have benefited from a heavier mix and Gene Simmons sings four songs in much too high a key. He does not display his trademark growl ala "God of Thunder." But the upside is he actually has a voice.
The album gets off to a roarin' start with "Crazy, Crazy Nights," one of the best Kiss anthems marred only by an awkward intro. As far as I'm concerned, it ranks right up there with "Rock N Roll All Nite" and "Detroit Rock City."
Up next is "I'll Fight Hell To Hold You," a very dramatic song that is the 2nd or 3rd heaviest song on the CD. Paul Stanley lets his voice soar one this one.
But then we get to "Bang Bang You," one the two worst songs in Kiss's history (Christine Sixteen being the other.) And possibly one of the worst in music. It's so unbelievably bad it's almost hip. It's hook is the kind that once you get it inside your head you'll go nuts. Avoid at all costs.
"No No No" is fairly bland, not well written. Gene sings it.
"Hell or High Water" is good, fairly heavy. Another Gene song. AC/DC has a song with the same name and although the two versions don't resemble each other, the Kiss version has shades of AC/DC.
"My Way" is the other song that doesn't belong here. This song sounds like it should have been recorded by Starship or Journey. It's very light.
"When Your Walls Come Down" rocks but sounds a bit stilted. There's no momentum.

2.0 out of 5 stars One of their weakest efforts May 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
Crazy Nights is not a good album. Kiss had released a string of very good heavy albums in the '80s with Creatures of The Night, Lick It Up, and Animalize. They started going poppier on Asylum and the pop music phase of Kiss hits bottom on Crazy Nights. This was during a very unfocused period in the band's history as Gene Simmons was spending more time making movies than music. Pop-metal was hip in 1987 and the band tried to jump on the bandwagon.
There are very few memorable songs on this release as the album is full of unfocused songs which are dominated by keyboards. The leadoff track "Crazy, Crazy Nights" is one of the weakest singles of their career. Gene Simmons only contributed four songs on this album, and of those only the closing track, "Thief In The Night" is decent. "No, No, No", complete with an opening solo by Bruce Kulick, would've been a better track if not for the glossy production and keyboard during the chorus. Eric Carr's drumming on this album is competent, lacking the fire and creativity of the previous albums he played on. Other tracks which were weak due to production or lack of hooks include "Bang, Bang You", "Hell or High Water", "When Your Walls Come Down", and "Turn on The Night". The only strong tracks on the album are "I'll Fight Hell to Hold You" and the power ballad "Reason to Live", which should've been a hit. Only die-hard fans and fans of this era would really enjoy this album. Kiss would get closer to their roots on their next album, "Hot In the Shade".

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Crazy Nights because it came out when I was in highschool, and I played it nonstop then, even though I questioned Kiss' direction. Read more
