    let's shed some Dark Light on The Elder

    Posted

    perhaps if The Elder film had come out we would rave about this strange KISS release. I would compare to 'one-offs' like Journey "Dream After Dream" or BOC "Imaginos"---where it's more of a project than an actual official album. let's examine the music: Just A Boy-ballad sung by Paul which lyrically is part of The Elder story Odyssey-epic track that was closing # on the unremastered version now back in it's proper place (sung by Mr. Stanley) Only You-Gene takes the mic for a moody, darker track Under The Rose-continues the moodiness of Only You Dark Light-an Ace sung treat w/his trademark deadpan sly delivery A World Without Heroes-the 'hit' sung by Gene and seen on Solid Gold back in the day The Oath-probably the best song on here w/a confident Paul singing a progressive metal track that would make Helloween proud Mr. Blackwell-one of the creepy, moody #'s done justice by Gene's singing Escape From The Island-rocking instrumental that has me wanted more of this stuff on here! I-another hard rocker w/eye-opening lyrics celebrating sobriety, self-reliance, and pride fans who have not checked out The Elder should give it a spin for some underheard, creative KISS moments

    I happen to like this album a lot. Great tunes include: The Oath, Only You, Under The Rose, World Without Heroes, Escape From The Island (excellent instrumental showcasing Ace Frehley's guitar playing and Eric Carr's drumming).

    This album gets a lot of flack, but, it's not KISS' worst effort.

    As a long time fan, I just plain don't care for this album. It has a few shining moments, but what a disaster from a band who's direction went the wrong way. Also Peter Criss departure had a negative effect on fans. Years later all I can see is that ,it is what it is !!

    Not everyone took a liking to this "concept" album when it came out but it tells a good story from start to finish and has some great music as a bonus.
