Morphine's fourth studio release, 1997's Like Swimming, was a bit of a disappointment when compared to such stellar earlier releases as Cure for Pain and Yes. After singer/two-string bassist Mark Sandman died of a heart attack on-stage in 1999, many Morphine fans assumed that Like Swimming would be the band's swansong - thankfully, it wasn't. The Boston trio completed their fifth album just prior to Sandman's untimely passing, entitled The Night, and it's definitely an improvement over its predecessor

The Night shows that Morphine had grander plans in mind: they were not only making their fans an album, but themselves an artistic future. For every surefire Morphine calling card ("Top Floor, Bottom Buzzer,") there was a daring experment: "Rope On Fire" uses an Oud. "I'm Yours, You're Mine" uses the sax not as a musical backbone, but to punctuate its daring rhythms and provide sonic variation. The title track, like some others on the album, uses a cello to provide an extra texture. But The Night is Morphine testing out a whole new vocabulary, not gasping for musical oxygen. For every old sound they use in these songs, they contrast it with a new one. The contrast is intensly dynamic. The Night is gripping and expansive. Art-rock in the best sense of the term : a testing of new possibilities for a great band. Listening, you'll feel intensely fufilled, and then intensely cheated.
Completed just before the sudden July 1999 death of bass player and lead singer Mark Sandman, the album was released in February 2000. Pictures, videos, biodata, and files relating to The Night (album) are also acceptable encyclopedic sources.
