    30 years later, Kiss Destroyer is a keeper!

    Kiss has stood the test of time and that is an understatement. Everything about Kiss, their music of course, the makeup, the imagery, the stage show and their Rock n' Roll attitude has all been copied and duplicated more times over than anyone can count. Not one Hard Rock or Heavy Metal band can touch Kiss when it comes to marketing, yet, behind all of this flattery, is still, the music of Kiss. "Destroyer" combines Hard Rock, Heavy Metal and some ingenious experimentation that has kept this album alive and well for over 30 years. "Beth" proved to be the most successful experiment for this album, being the first Kiss ballad up to that point in time and being a chart mover and seller. "Detroit Rock City" has the elements of Metal along with an intro that sets the stage perfect for this song. In my opinion, I feel "God of Thunder" can be looked upon as the first Doom Metal song ever recorded. The vocals and tempo of "God of Thunder" still raises the creep out meter for me after all this time, I like that. Kiss also experimented with a background choir on "Great Expectations", with Gene Simmons singing lead, I still sense a sliver of melancholy each time I listen to this song. "Shout It Out Loud" and "Do You Love Me" are just simply sensational Hard Rock classics. The lyrics overall are so memorable, these songs are so easy to get stuck in your head! Now, isn't that what a great album is supposed to do? After three decades of so many different Metal and Hard Rock genres being introduced, "Destroyer" by Kiss has risen to the top where it should remain.

    I decided to get into Kizz. They are legendary and Best Buy had better deals on two of their cd's than Amazon did. One of the jewel cases was slightly damaged - but I know that happens. Its tough to avoid it, things that get shipped to you get thrown around - it is what it is. Happy with my purchase, thank you !!! Will shop at Best Buy again, soon.

    How can you go wrong with the rocking intro of Detroit Rock City??? God of Thunder begs to be played at maximum volume as well. This was made when Kiss was a great band and not just a gimmick to sell merchandise.

    A great rock album to make some noise with when you are in that kind of mood. I owned this on Vinyl when it was first released. While my musical tastes have changed over the years, it was great fun to rock the house with this again. Great album.

    What a difference a producer makes. Bob Ezrin helped make Kiss legitimate songwriters. This is by far the best Kiss sounded in the studio.

    Best Kiss album in my opinion. Great mix of rockers and ballads. Remastering is 20+ years old but still sounds great!
