Stayed Awake All Night: Best Of Krokus

by Krokus
Stayed Awake All Night: Best Of Krokus by Krokus
Released: Aug 1989
Label: Arista
This concise compilation catches these Swiss misters wholly at their mid-'80s peak. Three fun if hardly necessary hard rock covers ("American Woman," "Ballroom Blitz," "School's Out") out of ten songs seems a rather high percentage. But "Long Stick Goes Boom" (about violence, sex or what?) is one of the decade's most primal AC/DC steals; 1984's "Eat The Rich" beat Motörhead (if not Tysondog) to that metal class-war title; Zep pastiche "Stayed Awake All Night" has a weird space-dubbish midsection; and "Midnite Maniac" and "Our Love" show the melodic sense of 1983-'84 Def Leppard or Ratt.
