4.0 out of 5 stars A Diamond in the Rough September 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
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 ›

5.0 out of 5 stars IT CHANGED MY LIFE February 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2014 KISS Vinyl Reissue April 4, 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anytime is KISSin' time, USA--and the world too. July 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
KISS's 1974 debut is still the freshest, KISSest, and most potent. But why?
Is it because it includes such well known classics as "Strutter," "Deuce," "Cold Gin," and "Black Diamond"? Yes, that's part of it. "Strutter," "Kissin' Time," and "Black Diamond," the latter the only one sung solely by Peter Criss here--he does have a solo bit in "Kissin' Time"--are my faves.
Or still, was it when all four of them were a united team, with none of the friction that would tear the original foursome apart with the coming of Unmasked? Yes, that's also part of it.
On a special note to "Kissin' Time," this is more than just kissing a girl/guy--it's about celebrating KISS and their music. A surprising number, coming this early in their career, but after nearly 30 years in the business, and wherever they sold albums so did sold-out killer shows--it's still "Kissin' Time." From the opening lines, "Come on Detroit, wake up San Diego, Milwaukee, Miami, put your two lips together and kiss," to the chorus, "Anytime is kissin' time, USA. So treat me right, don't make me fight, I will rock and roll tonight." And party everyday. Oops, that's two more albums down the road.
"Black Diamond" gets a special rise out of me due to Peter Criss's potent vocals, the power chords coming after the "woooo, black diamond" line, Ace's fiery guitar solo after the last line is sung, and the powerful chords that gradually become psychedelically distorted and slowed down at the end.
For the makeup era, this outranks classics like Destroyer and Rock And Roll Over. In terms of KISS albums overall, it's still in my Top 5 KISS albums. And why not? After all, this is where it started--right here!

5.0 out of 5 stars KISS kicks rump on this debut! October 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.
