After a disturbingly bland collection of albums in the 80s, KISS got a new drummer, cured bassist Gene Simmons of his 80s rut and finally turned Bruce Kulick into an excellent guitarist. Unholy is one of the best heavy metal songs of ever, God Gave Rock N' Roll To You is a superb rock n' roll track and the sleazy Domino is special. Take It Off and I Just Wanna proove just as strong and the tribute to their drummer of 11 years -Eric Carr- is touchingly displayed in Carr Jam '81, a devastating drum solo by the late drummer. The album stands up with the bands dazzling 70s output and produced a couple of KISS' classics and was unquestionably KISS best recording since Creatures Of The Night in 1982 and certainly their finest output of the 90s.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album all the Kiss fans had waited for 3 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
After the dissapointing 80's & 90's material,Kiss finally released the album we all really wanted to buy.Once again the crunching riffs that Kiss were known for returned with a vengance!The previous review lists the tracks to which i cannot add.The album is a stand out recording of Kiss' recovery from yesterdays men to a band of whom we could all be proud,Bruce Kulicks guitar playing found new heights and for once we stopped wishing it was Ace Frehley playing lead guitar still.If only Kiss had recorded more like this afterthe removal of the make up then perhaps the reunion tour would never have happened,but then life is fullof if onlys.Buy and enjoy,if you like Kiss,you'll love this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge Indeed! 30 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
KISS went through most of the 1980s in a haze. They had gone from being revolutionary in the 1970s to almost following the pack in the 80s. The result was the lowest points in their career, with albums that sometimes barely deserved the KISS logo. KISS took revenge on the critics that had written them off with a rip roaring classic.

The album opens with the most wonderful surprise - a Gene Simmons special; growling, bad tempered, heavy metal, Unholy signals the return to form of the Demon. He is equally superb on tracks such as Domino and Thou Shalt Not. Paul Stanley is also in fine form with I Just Wanna and Take it Off being his finest contributions. They band also cover (with a few of their own adjustments) the Argent song God Gave Rock and Roll to You and produce one of the greatest rock anthems of all time. Ironically it was the first KISS song I ever heard when I saw Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey about 15 years ago. I loved the song then but had no idea it was the very beginning of an obcession about the men behind it. The rest of the album is also strong, with even the 'filler' songs making the grade. It also contains a fitting tribute to Eric Carr, KISS drummer of 11 years who tragically died of cancer in the lead up to the album (Eric Singer replaced him on drums) with a monstrous drum solo - Carr Jam '81 - Jon Bonham eat your heart out! With classics a plenty, Gene back to his best and Bruce Kulick (the lead guitarist since 1984) peaking, it all adds up to a fantastic record.

It is unfortunate that after KISS had revived themselves commercially in the 1980s, their best album in ten years saw interest in the band wane. As with their debut album and Creatures of the Night, it was not a huge seller, but don't let that fool you, it's one of their absolute best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kiss go Metallica 8 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
Between 1989 when Kiss released the pathetic `Hot in the Shade' and 1992, when they released `Revenge', much had changed. Their second drummer, Eric Carr, tragically died of cancer and the music scene changed dramatically once again. Glamorous pop metal was gone and grunge and dirgey metal and hard rock was in. Nirvana and Metallica were the new kids on the rock block, a situation which ironically, drove Kiss back to a big heavy sound more similar to their roots, though dark and still heavily tinged with their 80s approach.

Once again (and thankfully) they turned to producer Bob Ezrin who had helmed their best album, 1976's `Destroyer'. He'd also produced their flawed but adventurous `Music From The Elder' in 1981 and most of Alice Cooper's successful 70s albums. It was a sound decision, with `Revenge' being one of their heaviest albums - and one of their most savage. It is also no coincidence that it shares a sleaze quotient with 1983's `Lick It Up' - because there is writing input from that album's lead guitarist, Vinnie Vincent (Vincent Cusano). That is the low point of the record - become corny, dirty bad boys to attract more interest.

The majority of the songs, however, are above average to strong on `Revenge', with Ezrin's writing skills all over many of them. A number also feature dueling vocals from Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, echoing their 70s records. And for the first time in over a decade, the whole record has a coherent, consistent style, even if it lacks a sense of fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars REVEEEENGE!!! 29 Dec 2008
By Andi
Format:Audio CD
They only made two studio albums with the line up Simmons/Stanley/Kulick/Singer (the other one is Carnival of Souls) and they are both amazingly great.
On this one, Stanley finally found his voice again and stopped screaming like a pig just before the slaughter. Simmons remembered how to write songs again. Kulick plays solos so full of humour that it makes you smile all the time. And Singer is one of the best Rock and Roll drummers one has ever heard. In spite of all the wild breaks on Revenge he's driving, driving, driving...
Bob Ezrin produced Revenge and did a great, great job, although I feel that the overall sound (only the sound, the record is so full of life, that you hardly notice it at all) is a bit lifeless, but I imagine that he helped an awful lot with the more complex arrangements.

There has never been a Kiss album filled with so many colourful stories. Never been one with such complex and surprising arrangements and yet straight between the eyes Rock and Roll songs.
There's one ballad 'Everytime I look at you' with strings and all which doesn't really fit into the album, but my girlfriend likes it a lot.

There's still so much to tell about...but never tell the details of a good movie. You need to see it yourself to fully appreciate it.

KIIIIIISSSSSS!!!!....GOD GAVE ROCK AND ROLL TO YOU

PS.: God gave Rock and Roll to you II is the fifth song on this album. Full of humour, filled with bombast, filled with everything KISS is about. If you ever heard the original version from Argent...it's just like... as if KISS made it complete.
