The Revolution By Night

Blue Öyster Cult

Reseña de álbum

Blue Öyster Cult seemed to regain their direction with Fire of Unknown Origin, but simultaneously, the band was starting to fragment, with founding member and notable songwriter Albert Bouchard departing. On The Revolution by Night, BÖC brought in various hired guns, such as Aldo Nova and former Alice Cooper bandmember Neal Smith, and turned to Loverboy's producer, Bruce Fairbairn, who gave them a similar radio-ready rock sound. Although The Revolution by Night lacked a distinctive identity, the album brought BÖC their fourth (and final) singles chart entry in "Shooting Shark."

Disappointing, with 2 must-have exceptions

I would not recommend buying this album - it's a pretty big disappointment from a formerly great band on the decline, as BOC took to 80's hair-rock with ill-fitting results. But I would highly recommend picking up two individual tracks off this album: "Shooting Shark" is very atypical for BOC, and that's partly what makes it work so well. Whereas most of the other tunes on this album come off as cliched early-80s knockoffs, Shooting Shark stands out as a masterful pop song. Though it's drenched in synths, it sounds mysterious and beautiful, and contains some truly astounding (albeit brief, but well worth it) guitar solo work from Buck Dharma. The second must-have track is "Take Me Away", a classic BOC hard-rocker that sounds like it belonged on one of their earlier albums. It's a superior hard rock tune that stands head and shoulders above everything else on this album, and ranks right up there with their very best material. Pick up those two tracks, and leave the rest alone, because it's simply filler, and pretty bad filler at that. But do not miss either "Shooting Shark" or "Take Me Away", both of which deserved to be included amongst a much better collection than this one.

I wish there was a 4 1/2 star rating

Well hmmmm I bought this on vinyl WAY back in the day. At that point I owned every BOC album that had been issued to that point. IMO the first three tracks can stand up to almost anything in their catalog, plus the Shooting Shark video was awesome. Buck's best work usually lurked in the background and left you gasping if you were paying attention. Veins was quirky like Joan Crawford but not nearly as interesting. Then it seemed like this quintessential East Coast band tried to ride the Asian onslaught going on at the time. Let Go ( subtitled BOC in the credits on the album ) ...... I dunno a theme song for your group after so many years..... just seemed kinda lame to me. With their body of work if you don't know who BOC is you need to go back to school, baby. So I guess for BOCrockers like me you need to buy it to complete the canon, but lighter fans or curious ones should definitely buy the first 3 tracks, all great songs, and maybe check out the rest when you know the band better. It may be cliched but they really were the thinking man's heavy metal band. Saw 'em a few times, love 'em still.....

Curse of the 80's

This was the beginning of the end for BOC. They lost their way on this one with electronic drums, big hair chorus lines, and echo mixes. Gone were the wild vocals, mysterious lyrics, and interesting guitar riffs. Take Me Away is the only song somewhat reminiscent of classic BOC.

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Blue Öyster Cult was the thinking man's heavy metal group. Put together on a college campus by a couple of rock critics, it maintained a close relationship with a series of literary figures (often in the fields of science fiction and horror), including Eric Von Lustbader, Patti Smith, Michael Moorcock, and Stephen King, while turning out some of the more listenable metal music of the early and mid-'70s. The band that became Blue Öyster Cult was organized in 1967 at Stony Brook College on Long Island...
