As it goes for several of Flash and the Pan's other albums "Lights in the Night" can only be regareded as a neglected masterpiece. The album, which was the group's ( actually a duo) second, was originally released in 1980 after the somewhat unexpected commercial success with their debut album and the singles "Hey St. Peter" and "Down Among the Dead Men".

The high standards of the debut album are continued here on the sequel, on which no numbers fall through or seem insignificant. The characteristics of the band, good melodic songs, intelligent lyrics and varied arrangements are prevalent throughout the album.

Several numbers have obvious hit potential, so it is surprising that none managed to follow up the successes from the first album. Especially "Media Man" seems tailor-made for the charts.

The numbers are generally longer than on the debut album, but apart from perhaps "Welcome to the Universe" they never come out longwinded. Rather, the listener is greatly entertained throughout.

The closing track "Atlantis Calling" continues in the same thread as "Down Among the Dead Men" to revive an old myth - initially Titanic and this time that of Atlantis.

The impressionistic narrative style of "Walking in the Rain" is continued here on the title song "Lights in the Night".

The album is expanded with 4 numbers selected from the three subsequent albums. All easily as strong as the album itself and thus help making this a great bargain. Finally, the single mix of "Media Man" included.

A slight disappointment, however, is that, as far as I can hear, no remastering of the tracks has been done, so sonically it can not compare with the Repertoire reissue of the first album or collection "Ayla", also released on Repertoire in 2005.

All 6 albums from the band deserve the same remastering as the debut album, and let this be a call to Repertoire for letting this happen.

The year was 1978, a very good year for music. Flash And The Pan released Lights In The Nights and basically took over (at least parts of)Europe within weeks. I don't know if they became popular in Australia prior to winning our hearts, but we, the rock music lovers in Europe completely cave in to this album. We thought 'what a ambitious brother those crazy cool ACDC Young boys have, good for them'. Once again, it was back in 1978 and you have (although that is very hard to do) to listen to it in such context. Many of the moments here, like the beginning of the 'Welcome To The Universe' were such a novelty back then. This album has definately lost some of it's power right now because the sounds and samples do not appear so extraorinary any more. Those ambient parts mixed within such rock music back then were true novelty to us. If you are looking for another great solid album from the 1970ies, rock's golden era please try Lights In The Night. My favorite songs here are; Headhunter, Restless and Lights In The Night.

5.0 out of 5 stars F&TP, Redux... 21 July 2013
By Jerry D. Withers - Published on Amazon.com

How do you follow a debut as unexpected as "Flash And The Pan"? If you're Harry Vanda & George Young, you defy expectations by repeating the formula (which even they acknowledged was a mistake). Nonetheless, it's a small complaint at best. As with the first album, Renaissance stacked the deck with five bonus tracks, including the ultra-rare radio-friendly single version of album opener "Media Man". V&Y learned their lesson and went a bit more musical on their follow-up albums "Headlines" and "Early Morning Wake Up Call".

Flash and the Pan might not be every listener's idea of rock and roll, but their down-under charm plays through in the intrumental work and the well-crafted lyrics. G'wan and have a listen! This is a disc that's not easy to find, and the songs are thought-provoking and fun!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped for 4 Dec. 2012
By Brian McFarlane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had Flash and the Pan on vinyl back in the... 80's and I liked that it was different than most stuff and had a decent recording. I am not sure this was the album that I had in the 80's but this has only one good song on it IMO. Midnight Man is good... it seems to me that Early Morning Wake Up Call was a good cut but not feeling it now. Even though I am not totally anti-80's this CD highlights the what many can't stand about the 80's.

I may have gotten the wrong CD but Midnight Man was on the album I had back in the 80's... the rest I don't really recognize, maybe my tastes have changed some too.
