The first three Blue Öyster Cult albums didn't contain any hits but earned the band a, er, cult
following that appreciated their weighty sound and mysterious lyrics. Their fourth album, Agents Of Fortune
, brought them into the open with "(Don't Fear) The Reaper
," which got them on the charts for the first time and became a rock classic. The band came under pressure from their label and from themselves to find another hit, which affected the songwriting for their fifth album, Spectres
. "I Love The Night" was crafted for radio and released as the first single, and it went nowhere. Another track on the album, "Godzilla
," proved more enduring.
