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

This is an okay album, with Paul Stanley singing 7 out of the 11 songs on it. Bruce Kulick does a pretty good job on No No No (giving Eddie Van Halen a run for his money in the... Read morePublished on Sept. 5 2005 by Brad Anderson
