the grungiest kiss album.
it loses a star because of the mix but it's the mix
that makes this album unique.
it was also my first kiss album.
"goin' blind" kicks ass
and so does gene's vocals. -lynn

song by song

got to choose - ballsy. pauls vocals are strong on this one.
this song is chocked full of ace frehley's signature licks.

parasite - this song is driving and thumping!
it sounds like ace did several rehearsed takes on this one.

goin' blind - my favorite track off this album.
simple, heavy and soulful. ace's lead is perfect and moody,
and the drums are nice and thick.

hotter than hell - sassy with attitude!

let me go, rock n' roll - upbeat and cool. real young
and raw sounding. i like the effects on peter's drums.

all the way - another heavy, driving song. it sounds like
ace just showed up and improvised a lead.

watchin' you - ballz!!! but what's that weird hiss in the
background? my geuss would be a glitch in the master tape.

mainline - peter's vocals are always soulful.

comin' home - a "peppy" filler song.

strange ways - original grunge! peter criss adds a lot
of serious balls to this song. the lead is killer, but it's obvious
that the lead get's cut off at the end. why?

got to choose
paul stanley

baby, you know i heard the neighbors say
baby, you might be leavin' me today

the road that leads to you
oh girl, it seems the whole wide world seems to say

just seem to drive me insane
but i can't get away
until i receive a call that tells me that will be all
and then i hop a plane
