The Revölution by Night

by: Blue Öyster Cult

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." ~ William Ruhlmann
