3.0 out of 5 stars over rated, 4 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Dressed to Kill (Audio CD)
Along with love gun this has to be one of the most over rated KISS albums. Out of the ten songs included on this album only four are classics.These are "come on and love me", "she", "rock and roll all nite", and "rock bottom". Granted these songs are very good but each one appears on "alive" and sounds a lot better. The other songs are pretty average with some good playing here and there but nothing to really grab hold of the listener. The reason for this was that KISS were forced to go into the studio and record another studio album in such a short space of time since the last one (which was the excellent hotter than hell). For most of the songs one can tell that they were forced to go in a room and write a song as quickly as possible. Even so all these songs have a great seventies feel to them. Yet after reading so may good reviews I was a quite disapointed with 6 out of the 10 songs. Still no KISS album deserves to get less than 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debut album, 18 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Faster Pussycat (Audio CD)
This is one of my favourite albums at the moment. Its glam metal with a blusey feel. The band is normally referred to as an underground guns n roses, and its easy to see why with the same type of sleaze on the songs, and the image being similar.
I like all the songs, but my favourites are bathroom wall, ship rolls in, don't change that song and no room for emotion. ship rolls in and no room for emotion sound very much like 70s aerosmith. Whilst babylon sounds a lot like the beastie boys.
The playing is good all the way through and the singer has the right sound for this album.
The album is best to listen to just before going out for the night.
Its a shame this band didn't get more recognition at the time, but its good to see the number of positive reviews.
I would certainly recommend it if you are into the 80s hair metal scene and 70s aerosmith. I would say it is in my top 10 favourite albums.

3.0 out of 5 stars good debut, 1 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Skid Row (Audio CD)
This album is a good solid piece of work by a good band. The first four songs are straight ahead rock songs, and really sets a good tone for the rest of the album. Though neither of these four are excellent they still have a great feel to them. Then comes one of the best songs of all time in my opinion, the excellent 18 and life. Unfortuantly the song after is quite mediocre and lets the album down a bit. Then after this comes youth gone wild which is the anthem on the album. Very good song. Short and sweet. After this there here i am which keeps the pace up. makin a mess is also a fast number but is overall quite a weak song. then the power ballard i remember you follows which is very stereotypical though due to sebastain bachs vocals makes an enjoyable listen. Unfortauantly the album ends on a bit of a poor note with midnight tornado. Overall this album has good playin and singing with mostly good solid rock songs. Its almost worth getting just for 18 and life. If they would have replaced rattlesnake shake, makin a mess and midnight tornado with better songs then this album would get four out of five at least. But as it is these songs spoil the flow of this otherwise solid and enjoyable debut album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good rock glam album, 1 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Out Of The Cellar (Audio CD)
This is Ratt's most popular date to work. It overall contains good songs all the way through. The first four songs are excellent, after this the songs step down a little bit but are still enjoyable. Back for more the seventh song is one of my favourites though.
Overall a good galm rock/metal album. worth getting if you like that type of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent debut album, 1 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Kiss (Audio CD)
It took a bit of time getting into this album. But once i did i found this to be one of my favourites in my CD collection. It is argued by many that this remains KISS's finest hour, well in the studio anyway. The reasons for this are due to the amount of classic songs on here. Strutter starts the album off brilliantly and all the way through you are treated to great rock music. My personal favourites are Strutter, Black Diamond and cold gin. Though all this album is great. I even enjoy the throw away instrumenatal and the rework of kissin time. So overall an excellent album and worth checking out especially if you just like listening to rock music.
