Creatures Of The Night
About this deal
While it’s cool to hear Keep Me Coming and War Machine played live, you can tell in some of the recordings that KISS is playing to empty arenas. I've recently purchased the Half-Speed vinyl remaster and prefer this version but comparing vinyl to compact disc is like comparing apples to oranges! Unfortunately, I don’t currently have the proper set up to play the Atmos mix of this album, but I was surprised to find out the Blu - Ray includes the complete “I Love It Loud” music video!
Demos and Outtakes – Comes in cardboard digipak that replicates the Master Reel boxes of the original Creatures demos.
The sound quality is on par with the latest Off The Soundboard release Live in Des Moines, but it comes across as vintage and raw. Glow-In-The-Dark Guitar Picks – These would be great to display as they look really cool in a dark room! Includes 80 page hardbound LP-sized book; replica 10th Anniversary Creatures tour program; Creatures Of The Night promotional pamphlet with various posters, photos, stickers, stage drawings, ticket, backstage pass; blue paper folder embossed with KISS logo containing drawings of individual band members and Gotham Rock City News newspaper-style insert describing album and recording; iron-on patch; packet of 4 pin buttons; packet of 5 guitar picks.
Gotham Rock City News Volume 2 Newspaper –Track-By-Track Interviews - This is where they decided to put the in-depth liner notes about the album tracks. This set is awesome EXCEPT for some reason the mastering on the Blu-Ray has been botched and the volume is very low, to the point where you have to turn your system's volume up absurdly high to get a normal level out of it. CDs 4 and 5 highlight 26 incredible, soundboard live recordings from the Creatures ‘82/’83 Tour and 7 super rare tour sound effects, all recorded and archived by the Creatures Tour sound engineer Harry Witz. disc) – I didn’t hear a lot of difference between this remix and the other versions of the album I have. The Creatures Of The Night 40th anniversary Super Deluxe boasts 103 total tracks with 75 tracks being unreleased.It crushed fans’ expectations with a huge, back to rock sound and has become a fan favorite, a cult-classic.
While the sleeves themselves have cool artwork, I wished they came in traditional plastic cases as these seem delicate and could be prone to damage. I’m struggling whether to keep these collectables in their packages or rip them open because they are so cool! While I appreciate the concept of making it look like a newspaper, the paper in super thin and I feel like every time I pick it up, I could damage it.
