Love Gun represents the end of an important part in Kisstory. It is the last album to feature the band at its best before fame, excess and changing styles set them back for several years.

It is blood and thunder rock metal from the start. I Stole Your Love is frentic as is the magnificent title track (still my favourite KISS song to this day) and Tomorrow and Tonite. Gene chips in with Christine Sixteen and Plaster Caster (the Demon shows his horns) and there is the long overdue vocal debut for Ace Fehley on Shock Me (with a solo that will blow your mind). There are a few filler songs, notably And then She Kissed Me, Got Love for Sale and Almost Human (which sounds like a wispy rip off of Watchin' You to me).

Thanks to a few abolsute classics, the album stands out. It is mostly a divide between great songs and not so great songs, but where it's good, it rocks. Sadly after the this, the band went into decline, losing their way for 5 years before coming back in the 1980s, but this was a fine way to end an era.

Firstly, I must say that this is not my favourite KISS album and that I also don't rate some of the songs. For the record I would like to say that for all the good Paul and Gene have done they still manage to make the odd mistake, and I mean ODD - 'And then She Kissed Me' - I mean, what is that all about?!? Why? Why round off such an epic album with such a lacklustre cover of a crappy 60's pop track? - Mehhh...

However, do not let that put you off, as this album contains some of the best songs ever recorded - ( 'I Stole your love', 'Christine Sixteen', 'Love Gun', 'Plaster Caster' and 'Shock me!') - These are untouchable songs, full of excitement, drive and energy.

I strongly advise you to get this album if you like KISS, Rock and Roll or just exciting music! I would however look first at Destroyer and Rock and Roll Over - ow..... And Alive!

I defy you not to be blown away! Alive

Kiss remastered all of their albums in 2014 (except Sonic Boom) on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl in USA and Europe. I purchased the USA versions because some critics said they are far superior compared to the european versions. True or not, the version you have to buy in this case is the European. The track "Then she kissed me" was bad press on the american version and the record has an error on the beginning of this song. Luckily this has not happened in the European version. The cover looks very nice (the spine is thicker than the USA pressing), is very well reproduced. All product will be much appreciated by collectors. The music? Oh yes....One of the best KISS albums of all time!!!

Love gun was a smash hit in 1977 and for good reason. The melodic metal here was fun and fresh. It's not hard metal instead its full of good hooks and very good songs. The hit's 'christine sixteen' and 'lobe gun' are on here and the band had yet to go more straight pop. Few kiss fans I know dislike this one in the least. Of course metal fans who only want really hard metal need not apply. This is a fun type of metal here which today is seen as too light by thrash heads perhaps. But thrash is a limited style of metal mostly so who cares. Other classics on this include 'almost human' and 'hooligan'. This was still a band firing on all cylinders. In a few years dope would take it's toll on two of the boys and the band would lose focus. But not here. The album came with a paper love gun that was fun to play with. The remaster is fine but has no extra tracks.

Disc 1 - Love Gun (Remastered) - Classic Kiss. The remastering is decent with Gene's bass sounding particularly good.

Disc 2 - Unreleased tracks are always going to be of interest to me and the fact that we are given a whole disc of mostly "unreleased" material is certainly a great improvement on the disappointing "Destroyer Resurrected" released a couple of years ago. However some of the tracks have very limited replay value ("Love Gun Teaching Demo" & the radio interview), a couple are actually previously released ("Love Gun Demo" was on the 2001 Box Set & "Reputation" was on this years "40" compilation) and the live tracks sound suspiciously tampered with (and technically were recorded on the Alive II tour rather than the LG tour). Which leaves us with four new songs. Unfortunately we are not given much information on when & where they were recorded or who is actually playing on them so whether they are all LG era demos is unclear. "Plaster Caster" & "Tomorrow & Tonight" are I would assume from that era and are certainly interesting releases, "T&T" seems more like an early instrumental rehearsal rather than a proper demo. "I Know Who You Are" is an early version of "Living In Sin" from Gene's '78 solo album. "Much Too Soon" is perhaps the most interesting track here as it is possibly a reworked Wicked Lester tune ("Black Moon June") and was possibly demoed as early as 1974, it would be great to know when this version was recorded and who is playing on it.
