Love Gun - Kiss [CD]
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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
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.
2014 deluxe edition update.
sounds superb,packaging pretty good,some decent notes and pics, however the main reason you'd buy this is for disc2,and to be honest it aint that great,firstly who in their right mind puts a teaching demo and an interview ,in the middle of the track selection?,surely you leave it for the end of the disc?. Secondly the bonus tracks have no info whatsoever,who played what,so you have to ssume its just Simmons and Stanley alone on their respective tracks, the unreleased Simmons tracks are ok,all explore a similiar theme , as per Christine 16, 'I Know Who You Are' was reworked for Simmons solo album as 'Living In Sin', the other 2 are performed in a a style that he would adopt on his solo disc,as for the last 3 live tracks,not great performances and 2 have been available on the kissology dvd series.
So definitely a chance missed,where's the demo tracks with the Van Halen brothers?,now they would have made it worthwhile.

I think this album along with their self titled debut from 1974 are the best KISS studio albums. Love Gun was the last album that all 4 original members played on (so we're lead to... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Rappers

Another class album, still got it on vinyl, Ace,s guitar lead playing is great and I think when he's not part of Kiss there is something missing, just my opinion.Published 17 months ago by NON
