This was a great album. I liked Bruce's sound on this album. The songs are strong and can be listened to front to back. I know a lot of people bashed this album, but a lot of people just think "80's, so it must suck". Most people don't know how to think when expressing opinions. Kiss evolved throughout the decades. This album reflects that. What you have here is simply a solid album with well thought out songs.

this was a good album.it holds some of the greatest songs ever written in the 80s like "Tears Are Falling","Anyway You Slice It","King of the Mountain" and "I'm Alive".Although songs like "Radar for Love" were a disapointment.

But I dont really know why people put this album down.one of the greatest Kiss lineups started here.Bruce Kulice is one of the best guitarests to ever play with Kiss.Hiss solo for "Tears Are Falling" will prove that to you.And all in all,this may not be their best,but its a must-have!

ASYLUM featured KISS' most stable lineup since 1979, when the band had all 4 original members. Bruce Kulick's guitar shows off some great riffs, and Eric Carr's drumming is top notch. Simmon's worked less on this album then Stanely, since he was busy with acting in Hollywood, but his "Any Way You Slice It" is a catchy tune, as is "Trial By Fire," my favorite track on the album. Paul Stanley's "King of The Mountain kicks the album off good, and his vocals soar. "Who Wants To Be Lonely" is a clunky number, but not bad. The wild "I'm Alive keeps things fast-paced in the middle of the album, before you get to "Tears Are Falling, " a mid-paced ballad that has a really flashy video to boot. The closing track, "Uh! All Night," is terrible, but hilarious! The video is even funnier! This album has some filler, but overall is worth the buy for an 80's metal fan.

The mid-80s weren't always that great for KISS. Hair-metal was raging, and KISS jumped on its bandwagon. This album best shows that aspect. There are some true classics on here. UH! All Night and Who Wants To Be Lonely fit in that list. Bruce Kulick was a top-notch guitar player, and Eric Carr was a true phenom. Paul was in his element, screaming those songs. However, it seems like Gene was out of it, as most of his tracks (Any Way You Slice It, Trial By Fire) are largely forgettable. He managed to wake up a little for Secretly Cruel, but he just seems to lack any passion. (Too busy making movies at the time?) Still, his lack of fire can't hurt this album too much, as it's still required listening for true KISS freaks.

I know this may not be popular with '70s KISS fans, but this album totally rocks, and may as well rank as the band's best. 10 solid rockers with just a little bit of '80s pop in the choruses. The drumming is great, and the guitar is ...wow! The solo in King of the Mountain is incredible, with excellent VH tapping technique by Mr. Kulick, then to become Kiss's top guitarist EVER (sorry Ace fans). Great guitar all over the CD Highly recommended-for more pop Kiss I'd rather look at Crazy Nights though...

As a KISS Army member for almost thirty years, I, along with almost every other KISS fan will no doubt agree that the original lineup will always be the best, period. However as KISS marched through the 80's with different personel, some albums shined and some didn't. I don't know if they were actually trying to get on the glam wagon that all started with Motley Crue's Theatre of Pain, or if they really enjoyed dancing on MTV wearing clothes that looked like they were designed by Salvador Dali. The bottom line always has been the music, so let's talk about that. I thought the songs were good. I liked 'Secretly Cruel' and 'Uh! All Night' the best. If you look past the videos and just listen to the music, you'll probably enjoy it. It's not as hard rocking as others, but it's overall OK. If you're looking for the best KISS album of the eighties, Lick It Up is by far the best

It is sad that this album is so underrated being probably the best album that Kiss put out during the 80's. A very inspired Paul Stanley and crew wrote great songs like "tears are falling", "who wants to be lonely?", "uh all night", "trial by fire". There's a total change in the dynamics of the songs, just pay attention at the guitars: refined and original strumming. This is the first with Bruce Kulick and you can tell the difference right away, his solos are great. Lick it up has a couple of good songs, Animalize is the weakest, Creatures of the night almost there, The elder was hard to get, Unmasked way too pop and the same with Crazy nights, but Asylum has consistency all the way, and that is what makes it so good without losing the heaviness. Good album.

ASYLUM is the closest KISS got during the 1980's to their classic style of the 1970's. ASYLUM captures the spirit, if not the exact style, of ROCK AND ROLL OVER, and it has many standout tracks.

Album opener "King Of The Mountain" is a thunderous Paul Stanley song with some excellent guitar/drum interplay between Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr. "Who Wants To Be Lonely" is a classic Melodic Metal song, with a fairly funky groove, while "I'm Alive" is a frantic double-bass speed metal song (for KISS) with some great hooks.

Other highlights include Gene's "Secretly Cruel," which sounds like something off of ROCK AND ROLL OVER (and acually uses a bit of the "Mr. Speed" riff as an intro), "Radar For Love" which is a much maligned, but quite good, song from Paul, and Gene's "Love's A Deadly Weapon," another frantic song in the KISS "Speed Metal" vein (not true Speed Metal, but thrashier versions of what they did in the 70's).

If not for Gene's mediocre "Any Way You Slice It," and "Trial By Fire," (not bad songs, just not as good as the rest of the album) this would be considered one of KISS' best albums. As it is, it's a solid album with several great songs and excellent musicianship. Underrated but well worth buying.
