Format: Audio CD
This album is full of strong rock (and some slightly funky) memorable tunes, written mostly by Eric Burdon, one of rock's greatest vocalists. The rest of the original Animals are Alan Price on keyboards, Chas Chandler (who "discovered" Jimi Hendrix in 1966) on bass, Hilton Valentine on guitar and John Steel on drums, and they all play very well. "Ark" grows after a few listens and is well worth buying by anyone who likes the old Animals and Eric Burdon's solo albums. These five had briefly reformed in the late 70s for the very good "Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted" LP and they reformed again in 1983 for this album "Ark" and a world tour.

This isn't in the style of the Animals' original hits, but there's some classic tracks here - keep listening and let it grow on you.
Just one thing - where's the rest of the tracks? Only half of them seem to be listed here!

HASH(0x96e00f78) out of 5 stars As good as they got 13 Sept. 2008
By Marcus Aurelius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The original Animals had all the commercial appeal of the British Invasion groups of 1964-5 and all the musical integrity of the bands who were still around by 1966-7. Eric Burdon eventually split and even though he could drink as much as Keith Richards on stage, he eventually went farther and farther out into the universe until he was just a fading star. Alan Price did his own thing and Chas of course had his own Experience. The boys reunited twice: in the late 70's and this early 80's set. The big difference is that the original band supported this album with a tour and a lot of these tunes were live numbers. And they rocked. As much as I like the early Animals, the Eric Burdon solo stuff, and the Alan Price material, this to me is just a great set, and it could be argued is the best album that the band put together. Burdon is in great voice, and when Chas and Alan sing background, it's the sound that made the world pick up its ears in the early 60's. The recording is clean, the band and back-up musicians are top rate, and the material--including the bonus flip side--is just brilliant. So glad to see this available, and you should give it a listen.

HASH(0x96e0639c) out of 5 stars Great Effort By Burdon & His Boyz. 2 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Ark is the 2nd Animals reunion album. The critics tore it apart when it first came out, but then this was 1983 and to be a music critic in the 80's means that you had to have bad taste in music.But, seriously the reason that the critics didn't like it was that it was a polished effort, and the Animals didn't build their reputation on over-produced music.But, the Animals were 20 years older than they were in the 60's, they matured, and so did their sound. This doesn't mead to say it lounge music, 'cuz it sure-as-hell ain't!This is loud and raw music with strong, strong hooks that just happens to be cleanly produced by a band that made it's reputation on reckless abandon.If you at all liked any of the Animals stuff, you should love this effort. Every song has strong melodies and Burdon's vocals, especially on "Trying To Get To You" are as Raw and Vicious as he was when he was a kid.

HASH(0x96e061c8) out of 5 stars The Animals - 'Ark' (Castle) 3 1/2 stars 30 Mar. 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Decent 1983 reunion comeback effort. I remember when this album first came out. The critics hated it but many fans (like myself) thought it was okay. If anything, the long-running British blues rock five piece band's sound was more mature than their '60's material. Some of the tunes I liked were "The Night" (still see the video on VH1 Classic upon occasion), "Love Is For All Time", "Hard Times" and "Crystal Nights". Personnel: Eric Burdon - vocals, Chas Chandler (R.I.P.) - bass, Hilton Valentine - guitar, Alan Price - keyboards, Steve Gregory - sax and John Steel - drums. Enjoy because I seriously doubt that the surviving members will ever reunite again.

HASH(0x96e067a4) out of 5 stars Highly underestimated 13 Aug. 2005
By Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1983, the original members of The Animals once again started rattling their instruments, and they finally reunited after experiencing some convincing Eric Burdon it was a good idea. To this day Eric Burdon still hates this reunion and regrets that he came along in the first place.

Well, I can't say that I agree with him here! The album is really good, especially what was the first side of the LP (the first 6 songs). Prisoner of the Light is an outstanding piece with its mystical, dark arrangements and lyrics, and I still concider it being one of Erics' finest songs. When this album came out, for some reason it was detestined by every critic it came along - a big mistake I still can't figure out. OK, The Animals were not great musicians at this point (except for Alan Price and Eric Burdon), but they were helped along by Steve Grant, Nippy Noya, Zoot Money and a sax-player I can't remember the name of... Apart from one or two bummers like Just Can't Get Enough and Wanna Get Back To You this album is a great piece of music. The songs are a bit dark and quite harsh, and not at all like the stuff they did in the 60's, but they still sound good. Buy it!

HASH(0x96e0681c) out of 5 stars PAUL POWER designed the cover art mate! 16 May 2013
By Paul S. Power - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My whole experience in 1983 with Eric Burdon and the ANIMALS were nothing short of a bloody good time. I was very happy to get the job of illustrating and designing the cover art from Art Director Jim Newport. I love all the tracks and the band rocked out at every gig. The fans of the band were on fire with good vibes and The ANIMALS never let them down. I was on the road with them for two weeks. On the tour bus or riding in Eric Burdon's big black Caddy.

Meeting Zoot Money and getting the band and crew free tickets to Disneyland was a good move on my behalf. With great thanx to Jack Kirby and TARZAN inker & fellow cartoonist Mike Royer. Who drew Winnie the Pooh for Disney.
The ARK album cover was Eric's concept. All I can say is Buy this CD and enjoy the music. Eric has NEVER stopped rockin'. I mean NEVER!
