Rhett May’s “Creatures of the Night” is a perfect blend of pop and psychedelic performed with passion. Showcasing his immense talent, the guitar work is absolutely amazing as he goes from the gentle to the blistering, oftentimes within the same song. Nicely tying everything together his is affectionate lyricism heavily focused on love, lust, and the confusion that comes with relationships. “Creatures of the Night” runs the gamut from the jazzy sound of “When We Make Love” to the bombastic beautiful distortion of “Sandy Sweet as Candy”.
Rhett May “Latex Lady – HOT!!”
By far the highlight of the album is the playful glam rock of “Latex Lady”. With a driving rhythm the song simply dominates, and the lyrics reveal a character study of a particularly special someone. Opting for a classic rock sound is the affectionate work of “Back Seat Of My Chevy”. With a slow and steady build Rhett May’s vocal delivery is particularly satisfying. Ambitious in its scope is the gargantuan sound of “Elixer Of The Gods”. A steady beat helps to give the song a mystical, almost otherworldly feel to it. Full of optimism and energy is the hyperactive work of “Somebody’s Watching You”. Distortion and volume define the undeniable domination of “Bella My Baby”. A carefully formed narrative defines the dramatic work of “Sing For Me”.
On “Creatures of the Night” Rhett May shows off his impressive chops with a sound reminiscent of the best of classic rock.
