2 stars This will be my 8th review for a BOC album. Revolution By NIght is very much a product of it's times- the 1980's. Sometimes poppy, sometimes hard, this release doesn't really seem to know what it is trying to do. The "hit" Take Me Away starts the album out with some good arena rocking sing-along lyrics. The next track to really grip me is "Shooting Shark". Is it disco- Cult? I have no idea, but it IS infectious and grooves along nicely, if a little longly. "Veins" is annoying synth 80's rock and I skip it every time. After this, the only highlights I can find are "Feel the Thunder" and "Shadow of California". They are both typical hard-rockin' guitar riffin' BOC monsters with what I believe are biker themes. Nothing special but not bad, at least. I feel the weakest track is "Let Go" which is just repititive and dull. Nothing here is in the top tier of BOC in my opinion. It falls somewhere down at the level of Club Ninja and Heaven Forbid, both NOT classic Blue Oyster Cult. 2 stars.
