Upbeat, gum chewing rock doesn't get better than this.
Unkind reviews in the past have stated that the first three albums were relatively poor. Nonsense. The first three albums were Kiss's finest hour and were capped off by the legendary ALIVE! If they had decided to split after that - I would still be happy.
There is a rock n roll groove more prevalent here than on the 1st 2 albums,tracks such as 'Room Service/Getaway' and 'Love Her all i Can' revel in this loose feel,while 'She' and 'C'mon and Love Me' hold up the heavy end,throw in an anthem 'Rock n Roll All Nite' and the delightfully constructed 'Rock Bottom',then whats not to love?.
There is more than a hint that this album was thrown together in a ramshackle fashion if so then it worked,probably the last 'true' KISS album,where they all worked together as a team.
However, Casablanca Records were right and KISS had their first chart hit. This album and the next one called Destroyer also helped the band a lot to reach their superstar status.
Have fun and party all nite!
Turning from the slightly unlikely production team of Kenny Kerner and Richie Wise (having produced albums for Gladys Knight and Jose Feliciano), who oversaw the first two albums with their relative diversity of style, to Casablanca records head Neil Bogart, the emphasis on `Dressed to Kill' is on straightforward rock and roll fun. And all four members of the band continue to contribute beyond simply playing their instruments.
Stanley again proves himself the band's premier songwriting and singing talent with the album's showstopper, `C'mon and Love Me' echoing the melodic glam pop rock of the first album. He is also responsible for `Room Service', `Anything For My Baby', `Love Her All I Can', `Rock Bottom' (with Ace Frehley and classical guitar intro) and the rock classic `Rock and Roll All Nite' (with Gene Simmons - though it is a bit limp in comparison to the hit live version). Again denied a voice, Frehley also contributes `Getaway' which is sung by drummer Peter Criss. The dramatic and durgey `She' is a standout from Simmons.Read more ›

One of their very best front covers, with the cheap, non-fitting suits, and a decent production job after the disastrous sounding Hotter Than Hell. Read morePublished on 27 Aug. 2014 by Rappers
I don't know what it is about this album, but I do like it. I like it a lot. The magic of KISS resonates with me, just the same now, as it did in the 70's.Published on 21 Jun. 2014 by J.J.
