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'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!

That's right: this is the album that started it all. Great tracks, simple, fun-loving, hard-rocking tunes.

Strutter: Who hasn't heard this song? lol. Excellent tune, especially with Peter Criss's drum kick-off! 10/10

Nothin' To Lose: You got nothin' to lose...by listening to this song. Nice piano in the chorus. Gene sings great. Cool guitars. 10/10

Firehouse: I don't listen to this as much as I do with the first two tracks, but it's still well-done. 9.5/10

Cold Gin: Ooooh...it's Cold Gin time again. Space-Ace wrote this song, but Gene sings it because Ace doubted his voice. Guitars are killer in it. 10/10

Let Me Know: Not only does it have great lyrics and guitar playing, but the doo-wop that last a few seconds towards an all-out crazy metal ending is fabulous! 10/10

Kissin' Time: Kissin' time is right! Another excellent hard-rocker, lofty but lovable chorus, just a song that makes you smile! 10/10

Deuce: Some of the best guitar playing on the whole album; if you look at the lyrics, they seem to be kind of silly for such a profound sound, but that's Kiss: full of surprises! 10/10

Love Theme From Kiss: An instrumental, 2 and a half minute, jazzy-metal break. Very catchy riffs. 8.5/10

100,000 Years: Bass-driven song about time. Interesting to have this played after an instrumental song. 9/10

Black Diamond: I know a lot of big-time Kiss fans appreciate this song, and I do, too. Acoustic opening, along with a memorable opening verse ''Out on the streets for a living...'' 5 minutes, and ends off with a fading-away psychedelic sound; the guitars and bass getting lower. 9.5/10

...and there you have it. For all of you people who are big fans of Kiss, or you want to get into their most glorious albums, I'd highly recommend this; you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!
