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.

This reunion album from the Animals is more rock than their first reunion album was. It is also much better. The Night is the best song with Hard Times another good song. The Animals showed themselves able to adapt to the music landscape over thirty years of their existence. Ark was a little noticed and little regarded entry into their discography and shouldn't have been.
