This album holds special meaning for me. It was the first KISS album I ever bought and about 40 or 50 have followed since. So naturally I always look back with fond memories of playing the record during that warm spring of 1998. And I still love the album to this day. As with Crazy Nights, it gets a lot of criticism and I feel most of it is unwarranted.

The three singles are fantastic; Rise to It and Hide you Heart are great songs and Forever is KISS' Beth on the 1980s. There are many other fine songs like Cadillac Dreams, Silver Spoon and Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell. The only downer on this album is the amount of filler. The band simply churned out (seemingly) every song they had scralled down over the last few months and leads to such poor licks like Boomerang, Read my Body, Prisoner of Love and Love's a Slap in the Face making their ugly way onto the record. Had the above tracks been deleted, they would have had a very strong 11 song album. As it is, the good songs are still there, hence the good review.

As with all of KISS's material, judge for yourself. This band has been unfairly knocked by critics who never got it and ignored by people for the same reasons others fell in love with them. So listen for yourself and tell me it's a poor album!

It's unfair to lambast this album when thinking out of context. Kiss in the 1980s was predominantly the Paul Stanley show. Gene Simmon's songs were pure fillers and his output was zilch. Paul Stanley, a talented songwriter, has always been the softer side of the band, and has melodic sensibilities, so the album's direction towards a Bon Jovi style hard rock is likely and suitable.
 Still, this album is loud n proud, and I mainly like the Paul Stanley songs. Perhaps if this was a Paul Stanley solo album it would've gone down well with the fans. I love songs like Hide your Heart, You love me to hate you, Forever, king of Hearts, Rise to it, read my body - classics.

I think it's an excellent hard rock album made in the late 1980s. Unfortunately, only the ballad Forever became a hit from the album, though there are a lot more songs with good melodies. If you're into good rock'n'roll, you'll enjoy it.

Having not been a fan of kiss at all and was forced to listen to crazy nights and subsiquently got hooked i bought this album as a follow up... certainly not as powerfully synth ladened but a solid effort none the less. I have enjoyed going back to this album as it does hold some anthem songs. To me it still sounds fresh today... which is more than you can say for westlife

WELL 1989 WAS THE YEAR THAT THIS CD WAS RELEASED AND THE LAST TO FEATURE THE LIVING LEGEND DRUMMER ERIC CARR. IT IS BETTER THAN ITS BETTER THAN CRAZY NIGHT AND ASYLUM BUT NOT QUITE AS GOOD AS THE ANIMALIZE CD/ LP . THERE IS SOME VERY GOOD SONGS ON IT - READ MY BODY / THE STREETS GIVETH / RISE TO IT / FOREVER / CADILLAC DREAMS / HIDE YOUR HEART. THESE SONGS ARE HEAVY & POWERFULL THEY GIVE KISS A GOOD REPUTATION AND STAND UP TO THE LIKES OF EUROPE AND POISON . SADLY THIS WAS THE LAST CD/ALBUM TO FEATURE ERIC CARR ON DRUMS AS HE SADLY PASSED AWAY IN 1991 R.I.P. BUT KISS CARIED ON WITH NEW DRUMMER ERIC SINGER BUT THEY NEVER MANAGED TO CARRY THE MAGIC OF THE ERIC CARR YEARS .

SOME OTHER GOOD KISS CDS/LPS TO CONSIDER - CREATURES OF THE NIGHT / LICK IT UP / ANIMALIZE.

AFTER THE 2 VINNIE VINCENT ALBUMS " CREATURES / LICK IT UP " WHICH CLEARLY PULLED KISS OUT OF THE GUTTER THEN CATAPULTED THEM BACK INTO THE LIMELIGHT . THEY RELEASED ANIMALIZE THAT WAS ALSO EXCELLENT. THEN THEY STARTED ON THE DOWNWARD SLOPE WITH ASYLUM / CRAZY NIGHTS THAT WERE JUST HARTY FARTY BUBBLE GUM WANNA BE ROCK ALBUMS . THEN AFTER A YEAR OR SO THEY BOUNCED BACK WITH THIS ALBUM WHICH HAS SOME GREAT TRACKS LIKE - RISE TO IT / THE STREETS GIVETH / CADILLAC DREAMS / FOREVER / HIDE YOUR HEART .
SADLY THIS WAS THE LAST ALBUM KISS MADE BEFORE ERIC CARR'S SAD PASSING .
AFTER THIS THE ALBUMS JUST CONSIST OF PURE PUKE .
YES KISS STINK IN MY BOOK . SIMMONS / STANLEY & THE OTHER 2 ARE THE WORSE KISS LINE UP EVER .
THEY SHOULD REVERSE THE BANDS NAME BECAUSE THAT'S HOW THEY MAKE ME FEEL SINCE MR CARR PASSED AWAY .

I love Kiss generally, i like mostly the 70's decade until Dynasty and their '98 Psycho Circus.
The problem for me with Kiss, that they have many album that not good as the 70's and totally different, they had done disco, musical and glam pop. Yak!!
This one is not the worst, but the songs are boring, too long length, too much tracks, i can't play it in one play.
There are maybe one or two fine songs but doesn't worth the mention. I own this album for being Kiss fan but i can't recommend to anyone.
I go back to the classic albums of Kiss.

"Back to the roots" ? Give us a break ! A perfect example of quantity over quality is what "Hot In The Shade" really is... 15 songs of which 5 worth noting, and thus a whole album worth of filler songs is what you get on this album. By the end of the '80s KISS was desperately straining for their past glory of the mid/late '70s era. Not just in terms of record sales and concert attendance, but also when it came to writing good material. During the late 80's, so-called "heavy", melodic bands like Bon Jovi and Europe were selling records by the truckload and scoring hit singles with the help of songwriters like - in the case of Bon Jovi - Desmond Child, who was also the co-writer of KISS's biggest selling "disco-rock" worldhit to date, "I Was Made For Lovin' You", back in 1979. Not having been able to really "get on top" again after several lineup changes during the '80s (original drummer Peter Criss left the group in '80 and was replaced by Eric Carr, original guitarist Ace Frehley left in '82, replaced by Vinnie Vincent from '82-'84, in turn replaced briefly by Mark St. John in '84, and from there on Bruce Kulick would be the "hired gun") and after taking off the trademark makeup in '83, during the late '80s KISS apparently wanted to put themselves on the map again by writing more radio-suitable material to recapture the audience interest - they had already abandoned their early 80's metal sound ("Creatures Of The Night", "Lick It Up", "Animalize") with the release of the pop-metal, synth-laden "Crazy Nights" album in 1987. While this album did well, concert attendance was disappointing and it seemed as if interest in the band really started to wane by the end of the decade, much in favor of other bands that, quite frankly, did this sort of thing better.Read more ›
