Top Customer Reviews
The album starts as it means to continue with thundering drums leading into the title track. New drummer Eric Carr finally gets to show off his skills and was never better. Gene also excels throughout the album, on I Love it Loud and the menacing War Machine in particular. Paul contributes I Still Love You and the frentic Danger as well as the awesome title track. There are no weak songs on the album, only fantastic songs and good songs. Here is KISS as they were meant to sound, heavy and seriously hard rockers.
There are two reasons for the sudden return to sanity (aside from Gene and Paul waking up at long last); the first is producer Michael James Jackson, who unlike Vini Poncia and Bob Ezrin harnessed everything good about KISS to produce the heavy metal masterpiece. The other is Vinnie Cusano, a session musician who co-writes three of the songs herein and plays on some of them in guitarist Ace Frehley's abcense. Both help KISS pick themselves out of the rut they were in to produce certainly one of their best records and a genuine rock classic. A worthy addition to anyone's record collection.
From the pummeling drum intro to the strafing, lightning fast guitars and passionate Paul Stanley vocals, the title track rockets past like a runaway train, hell bent on destruction. Both Stanley and Gene Simmons' songwriting really shine on this album, both producing strong, rock-steady songs full of vitriolic fury and passion. "Saint and Sinner" is a groovy, looser Simmons number, with some impressive yodelling from the God of Thunder, and spacey lead-guitar work from Ace Frehleys replacement, Vinnie Vincent (whose lead work in the album is more daring and precise than Ace Frehleys looser style.). Eric Carrs drumming is also thunderous, proving himself to be a more than competent successor to Peter Criss. The Starchild, Stanley, also writes some great fast metal songs - "Danger" and "Keep me Comin'" - which are contrasted with Simmons' slower, more menacing and downbeat tunes, like "Rock n' Roll Hell" and "Killer". "I Love it Loud" was the albums sing-along anthem, with speaker shattering drums and an irresistible vocal chant.
The albums centre piece is the epic "I Still Love you", being the albums only ballad-esque song, and featuring Paul Stanley on top form, reprising his role as the romantic, impassioned Starchild. Album closer "War Machine" is a grinding, bottom-heavy metal number, and firmly reinstates Gene as the blood spitting, fire breathing God of Thunder. By recording this album, KISS restored their fans confidence in their traditional style, though relocated to the 80's. All in all, the best KISS album since "Love Gun" at least, and in fact of all their career - a great purchase, showing KISS at their brain shattering, ear pounding early 80's best!
Paul Stanley's & Gene Simmons fight & resolve.
The freedom afforded to Criss's replacement, the late, great Eric Carr.
The introduction of unknown guitar genius Vincent Cuzano...A.K.A Vinnie Vincent, who " covers" for the ever absent Frehley.
The title track opens a blistering pace, with Carr in full flow, " Saint & Sinner' is grade "A" KISS metal, as is the magnificent Gene Simmons " tribute" to Criss & Frehley, the tongue in cheek, " Rock & Roll Hell". " Danger" shows exactly why the new unit was 10 times more powerful than the old. " War Machine" is a slab of no-nonsense metal, that has Vincent riffing at the helm, " I Love It Loud" is an all new KISS Anthem. Vinnie Vincent comes to the fore again, as he combines with Paul Stanley on with one of the greatest songs ever written by ANY artist, the incredible " I Still Love You". This is genuine genius & KISS at their pure, unadulterated best....whatever the line up!!!!
BET AGAINST THEM AT YOUR PERIL!!!!
It Doesn't Get Better Than This!!!
The stand out tracks are:
creatures of the night - very heavy with thunderous drums and guitar riffs. hard vocals and a menacing chorus.
I love it loud - one of genes better songs, again hard drums and strong vocals.
I still love you - a great inspirational ballad by paul stanley. Great if you like pauls ballads.
overall a very solid album. I think that the band sound tighter then when ace and peter were in the lineup.
buy it today!!!!!
