Review


Another Night is the second album from Chicago's NWOBHM-influenced High Spirits. Just like the self-titled debut, Another Night is full of traditional Heavy Metal with a loose, garage band feel. The music, while definitely Heavy Metal, leans towards the Hard Rock end of the spectrum so bands like Praying Mantis and Witchcross would be good reference points. There's also a bit of 70s Kiss that can be heard, especially in the guitars, which are thick and fuzzy. The vocals are high and thin and are not overpowering yet they suit the music pretty well. The songs on Another Night are very similar to the debut and the band is most effective when they pick up the tempo, from the usual mid-pace, to a speedier one on tracks like "Going Up" and especially "Full Power." The biggest knock on the album is that is it so similar to the debut, it could almost be called Volume II. Still, if you like Traditional Metal and the NWOBHM, High Spirits is a band you should definitely check out.
