The great thing about this album is the absolute rawness and honesty of the production and composition. Ironically, there's a sort of innocence to the sound of this album. This was way before garage bands were walking into top-level studios and churning out critically-acclaimed (and quickly forgotten) "masterpieces". This album is a different kind of masterpiece. The songs aren't on the level of the Beatles or Led Zeppelin, but there are some catchy hooks here and there. Ace Frehley is no Eric Clapton, Gene Simmons is certainly no Paul McCartney and Paul Stanley is no John Lennon. But the guitar playing is competent and the singing fits. Peter Criss is pretty impressive on this album, combining his big band jazz chops with the straight forward beat necessary for a hard rock album. Simmons has some great "walking" bass lines and Frehley's guitar solos are actually quite tasteful. So for material that is so utterly "adequate", how can I give it four stars and call it a masterpiece? A couple of reasons. For starters, the material still holds up, which, thirty years later, is quite a feat. Frehley's "Cold Gin", sung by Simmons, is a great rock song. The straight-ahead rock and roll tune "Nothin' to Lose", sung by Simmons and Criss, brings to mind what might have happened if the Beatles and Cream had jammed together (with Little Richard on piano). "Deuce", another Simmons song with bizarre lyrics about what appears to be a strained relationship, comes off with a frustrated energy that almost dares you not to dig it. Paul Stanley's "100,000 Years" is both aggressive and PROgressive at the same time, allowing Peter Criss ample opportunity to work a 6/8 beat, which is his specialty as a roots R&B and jazz drummer. "Let Me Know", a song sung by Simmons and Stanley is just plain fun.Read more ›

With this album i discovered that music was my passion.All of the album is a highlight (one of the best debuts in Metal History) and the remastered edition is an inmense improvement over the poor sounding original recording.

Already on the debut KISS had its own sound.A mix of heavy metal and groove, simple compositions but not simplistic sounding.Any band would want to write so memorable pieces with so little notes! The pairing of Simmons and Stanley as singers and main composers is the driving force on this, but you should not overlook the solid imput by Criss and Frehley.Kiss went on from here to higher commercial sucess but the power of this album was unmatched.

Highly recommended, essential album.

KISS 40th Anniversary 180-gram vinyl, first U.S. edition vinyl since 1985. No frills LP, record comes in plain white sleeve with no inserts. Reissue LP has reproduction of the original dark blue Casablanca record labels. High quality vinyl with excellent sound. The $35 price point seems a bit outrageous for a reissue LP, but I felt that it was worth it to get a sealed copy of KISS. Highly recommended if you're looking for virgin Kiss vinyl.

KISS really kicks it on the self titled 1974 debut. Classic songs that many got to know on ALIVE!(1975), "Strutter", "Deuce", "Black Diamond", etc. are all here in their original studio form. There is only one song that is'nt original, "Kissin' time", which is also the only one that seems a little out of place. KISS also features the only instrumental song by the band, "Love Theme". A raw, hard sounding album which fits as the perfect intro to KISS. Great look on the album cover too!

this is the original KISS! this is KISS before the age of the power ballads. standout tracks on this album are: Strutter, Nothing to Lose, Firehouse, Cold Gin, and Duece. you can really hear Gene's bass playing on this album. why couldn't KISS be Peter, Paul, Ace, and Gene for eternity? whether or not, you're a KISS fanatic, this album belongs in your collection. my only complaint about KISS is that Gene Simmons is a money hog. otherwise, KISS is a cool band.

This is where it all began for Kiss when they were a young, hungry kick a** rock & roll band! When I discovered Kiss in 1975, I bought "Alive!" first and devoured that album beginning to end and front to back countless times; but from there, I wanted to seek out their first 3 albums from where the songs originated, so naturally, I started at the beginning with "Kiss".

I have to say it was a bit of a shock to the senses when I first saw the album cover and then listened to the record, because Kiss had already managed to look and sound different in just over a year later from when this debut was released. Having heard the studio versions of "Firehouse", "Deuce" and "Nothin' To Lose" for the first time after listening to the live versions was a bit startling, because the sound was more subdued, but no less compelling.

Also being a 10-year old kid at the time, I was easily impressionable, and where "Alive!" had already left it's impression upon me, "Kiss" fueled the fire even more and this is when I bought my first guitar (a cheap acoustic) and spent hours and hours picking out the notes and then the chords to every song on the album. The one I had the most fun with was "Let Me Know", where I had a fairly easy time picking up the first part of the song, I wasn't prepared for the instrumental second part which would completely blow me away!

The only song I didn't go much for then (and even now) is "Kissin' Time"; I didn't think it really fit within the framework of the rest of the album, but I was still bound and determined to learn Ace Frehley's guitar solos on it, and so I did (and still on acoustic!
