The Animals

Ark

(CD - Castle Music Ltd. #CLACD 412)

Review by

The Animals' formal reunion, complete with a new repertory and a well-financed recording. Ark has its dark, moody moments and sometimes bogs down in the sheer heaviness of the sound and sensibilities, but where Eric Burdon is on target as a singer, which is 70 percent of the time, the group sounds amazingly good.
