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. (Over)produced by Ron Nevison, Kiss were trying way too hard for radio and video hits. The rock was all but gone and I could hardly believe this was the same band. At the same time, the songs are actually pretty good. Better, on average, than some more well-love Kiss albums. It's the gloss and production that sinks Crazy Nights.

I recall reading in about 1986 that Paul Stanley was writing on keyboards. Uh-oh. Surely enough there are keyboards on tons of these songs. I remember being so disheartened by the video for "Reason to Live" and seeing Kulick playing keys instead of guitar. Stanley himself didn't play guitar in the videos either -- he wore one, and danced around with it. This didn't seem like rock and roll anymore.

Still, the songs are decent. Here's my breakdown:

Good to great songs:

"Hell Or High Water"
"Good Girl Gone Bad"
"Turn On The Night"
"No, No, No"

OK songs:

"Crazy, Crazy Nights"
"Reason To Live"
"I'll Fight Hell To Hold You"
"My Way"

Bad songs:

"When Your Walls Come Down"
"Thief In The Night"

So, not bad. Not enough Gene though. That was a problem on a lot of albums from Dynasty to Crazy Nights, there just wasn't enough Gene. He had become a sideman, not a frontman. Gene's singing here is smooth, no rasp and no monster voice. I always found that odd. Paul's singing is very high and something shrill. It was the 80's.

Pick it up if you love 80's rock. Avoid if you don't. Two stars.

INTRO:KISS had great history in the 70`s with fame and succes,in the late 70`s and early 80`s the band had few bumps.Two of their original members had left,a few bad albums,too much replacement guitarist didn`t do them any good as their reputation has drasticaly changed.With all of that,KISS still continued and held on wich is deserving of respect,the band had many directions during the 80`s,pop,orchestral,heavy metal,metal,pop-metal and this album could go for pop-metal.

REVIEW:For the time it was a good album,certainly the cheesy choruse of"No,No,No" isn`t a classic,but "I`Ll fight Hell To Hold You"is a great song that unfortunatly doesn`t get much attention.The album is forgetable for some reasons but memorable for others.For Crazy Nights KISS toured outside of the U.S. and even went to Japan for the first time in ten years!For the songs some are good,some not,a few are great.Paul`s songs are the better ones,Gene still writes typical Gene songs like "Good Girl Gone Bad" making a usual mix.A few songs only on the album are popish and they are mostly the forgettable ones,there is however not enough Bass did Gene even play?Eric Carr is once again great but shows very little of his abilities,Bruce does a good job with hs parts and his solos are truly great.

The album,if you are a die-hard KISS fan will certainly find its way in your albums shelve,Crazy Nights ain`t KISS`s best album but its not the worst either.

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.

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.
