3.0 goodTheNotrap | August 2nd 11

Their best record at this point. The title track is a great song but we also can find average songs here. Their best work came after.

POWER OF THE NIGHT was Savatage's first studio album after signing to Atlantic Records. Their earlier studio recordings with Combat records were rather raw and cavernous sounding, while POTN has a much crisp, clear and professional sounding mix by Max Norman. At this point, Max was best known for his work on Ozzy's first three solo albums. Musically, it's a more polished sounding take on the aggressive power metal style of SIRENS. The songwriting takes on a slightly more commercial trajectory, while stripping away the doom metal overtones of DUNGEONS.rOne of the main criticisms this album gets usually revolve around the creepy, sexual themes in such songs as the regrettably, cringe worthy "Hard On You", but also "Stuck On You" and "Skull Session". Like Motley Crue's SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, it's the sort of thing that shouldn't be taken too seriously if you expect to enjoy these albums. rAlthough there are many I could cite, I'd name the title track, "Unusual", "Warriors", "Necrophilia" and "Stuck On You" as my favorites. Slight flaws acknowledged and accepted, POWER OF THE NIGHT still remains in queue for my car audio system whenever a long road trip is at hand. I can still remember this era vividly and can appreciate the memories that come flooding back when I hear this album again.

A collection of typical and average metal numbers that are quite repetitive. The one redeeming factor is of course the title track. This might actually be on par with fight for the rock.
