Where the hell did this come from?!?!?!?, 7 Oct. 2009
When I heard of another KISS album, I was wary to say the least. Psycho Circus was decent, and given the gap since 1998 I thought that would be it. This album is a real treat and echoes KISS at their 70s best, but with the benefit of 35 years in the business, it is strangely retro but refined to perfection. The songs are really strong, not like most of the latter Kiss albums which were esentially vehicules for brilliant singles. Simmons is great on 'Too Hot, Too Cold', Singer really impresses with the vocals on 'All For The Glory', Thayer is amazing in 'When Lightening Strikes' and is obviously a massive Ace Frehley fan with the homage-like sounds he lends to the solos, and Stanley is just amazing on the end track 'Oh Yeah'. Give this album a couple of listens and it'll make everything from Music from the Elder onwards seem like a bad dream and you've awoken to find that KISS are just as brilliant as you always thought they were.
