Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

The last album with the original lineup (unless you count the 1998 reunion Psycho Circus), Love Gun contains a few missteps (such as the reworking of the classic "Then He Kissed Me") but is mostly packed to the gills with the good, fun, trashy rock & roll that made Kiss legendary. One frequently overlooked high point is the song "Almost Human," which strikes a positively creepy note. Then there's Ace Frehley's first stint on lead vocals with "Shock Me," the un-PC but affectionate "Plaster Caster," and the well-known title track. True, there's no equivalent to "Rock & Roll All Night" (the obvious attempt falls flat), but that doesn't stop this from being not only classic Kiss, but classic 1970s rock. -- Genevieve Williams

Looks like I'm the 1st one on Amazon to review this new 2 CD deluxe edition....and I have to say that the only thing keeping this from being a 5 star release is ONCE AGAIN, these guys royally screw up things by dicking around with the old live recordings. You would think that they would have learned with the backlash over the 1996 You Wanted The Best compilation, when anyone who has been a longtime fan IMMEDIATELY realized that Simmons and Stanley went into the studio and re-sang most of the live vocals on the vintage unreleased live tracks, and applied modern sounding drum triggers to the drum tracks. Well here we go again.....the vocals are the original vocals thank God, but not only is the mix washed out in massive echo and reverb, Peter Criss' snare drum has been so heavily sampled with a newer sounding snare drum, that whoever did the sampling triggers had it set so sensitive that there are all kinds of snare hits going on that shouldn't even be there! It sounds like someone went in the studio with an electronic drum kit and re did all of the snare hits....POORLY. An F-ing disgrace. Listen to the untouched, raw live recording of Parasite from Cobo Hall May 1975, used in one of the Rock Band video games (find it on Youtube).....THAT is how it's done the right way. Pure, raw, untouched-up live performance....just killer sounding, mixed to bring the levels up right but NOT re-recorded or sampled. Ugh....Tommy Thayer, producer of this reissue, should certainly know better. OK, now that's out of my system, the remaster upon 1st spin sounds great, no complaints. The demos included are all cool and interesting solo Gene & Paul demos, meaning it's them with studio guys, not KISS.Read more ›

After having 23 years of critiquing KISS for myself, and always looking forward to newer material, I must say this is a definate must-own CD for the die-hard original-KISS fan like myself. It's the last cohesive studio effort by the fab-four, and one that holds it's own through every new CD that has ever been made through this very day; thereby, it attains classic status. This is classic KISS, now with Ace on vocals--SHOCK ME rocks! Ace has been a quiet force in guiding the KISS sound since their first self-titled album; but now instead of writing songs for the others to sing, he takes the vocal helm with SHOCK ME; SHOCK ME would not have gone over the top if another member sang it, it is ACE's singing that boosts this debut to the outer limits! All the other songs have a place on this CD...they are your great, basic rockin' KISS tunes that have a hint of cheese (goofiness) in them that endear them to our hearts. KISS will always be the hottest band in the world--this album is what took them to their soared heights of popularity back in 1977, and it is what keeps them at that exact same heights to this very day! CHEERS!

If you are looking for an earth shattering difference due to the remastering, this will be a let down. Sound quality is better but if you played it side by side with an older CD, you probably won't be able to tell much difference. That being said, I like the content and the extras so I'm glad I bought it.

Being a major KISS fan for since 1990, I am always looking for unreleased stuff from the band. Unfortunately this edition didn't add much. This extra disc to me, is just a cheap add on to raise the price, which is not worth anywhere near what it's selling for. What i didnt like : Reputation demo was already on KISS 40. The Love Gun Teaching Demo to me is lame, and not even music (may be interesting to guitar players). The live songs may be unreleased from that concert but have already been heard a million times. What I did like were the demos for I Know Who You Are, Tomorrow and Tonight (although not much different), and Much Too Soon. They at least were interesting. As I said, overall, the Love Gun disc itself is great but the disc 2 just isnt worth it. If you're like me and always curious, you'll probably have to pick it up to listen to anyway. Say goodbye to $25.

THE BAND: Gene Simmons (Gene Klein), Paul Stanley (Stanley Eisen), Ace Frehley (Paul Frehley), Peter Criss (Peter Crisscoula).

THE DISC: Released 6/30/77. Recorded at the Record Plant, NYC. 10 songs clocking in at approximately 33 minutes. Originally released on Casablanca Records; this remastered edition was released in 1997 on Mercury's label. Much improved sound in my book (deeper bass guitars and crisper highs). Liner notes are slim - a 3 page fold out with song titles, writing credits and times. Underneath the disc on the inside cover, there's an informative 5 paragraph history of what the band was going through at the time.

COMMENTS: The band called KISS was now a global force. Selling our arenas everywhere. Successful on every continent... breaking attendence records in Japan once held by the Beatles. "Love Gun" marked a new milestone for then band. With Ace's "Shock Me" and Peter's "Hooligan", this was the first KISS album to feature all 4 band members singing at least one song on lead vocals. "Love Gun" featured some classic tunes. "I Stole Your Love", "Got Love For Sale", "Shock Me" and the title track are all great rocking tracks. The title track is one of my all-time favorite Paul Stanley tunes. Gene had a decent hit with "Christine Sixteen". Ace's first attempt at singing lead on "Shock Me" (the longest song on the album at 3:48 minutes) was a pleasant surprise. Peter's "Hooligan" is perhaps his 3rd best effort since "Beth" (Destroyer) and "Baby Driver" (Rock And Roll Over). As much as "Love Gun" is a classic album, there are a few questionable tracks. In my opinion, "Tomorrow And Tonight" was a weak attempt at another "Rock And Roll All Nite" rock anthem.
