#488: Destroyer by KISS

1.11.2011


Destroyer by KISS (1975)

Favorite Track(s): Most of them! "King of the Night Time World" and "Great Expectations" and "Sweet Pain" and "Shout it Out Loud" and "Beth"

Thoughts: Epic album cover, love it.

KISS is another classic rock band I've always respected, but never really gotten into. I think I always assumed their make-up and costumes were the main attraction, as opposed to the actual music. And maybe, just maybe...I was a bit scared of Gene Simmon's face make-up...and tongue.

There was a period where I was obsessed with Ace Frehley's "Back in the New York Groove" and I kept having issues when trying to talk about Jean Simmons and everyone thought I was referring to Gene Simmons. But I ended up knowing a lot more of these songs than I thought I would!

Some were kinda silly to me...like "God of Thunder" (maybe it's better live?) but still probably my favorite whole album since I listened to The Stone Roses.
