Rock legends KISS return with Monster, the 20th studio album in their historic career. The 12-track, straight-ahead rock n roll album features collaborations among all four members including co-founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons and longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer in an album that shows the band at the top of its game. And that s saying something, considering their illustrious, 40-plus year history 28 U.S. gold albums, the most gold records for any American rock band, 40 million sales in the U.S., and a total exceeding 100 million worldwide.
Monster is the group s first studio album since the band s 2009 smash success, Sonic Boom, and was also produced by Paul Stanley with Greg Collins at Conway Studios in Hollywood, CA, and The Nook in Studio City, CA.
Monster represents KISS nod to the music that first inspired them to pick up their guitars and flame-throwers and don makeup to entertain millions. There are no symphony orchestras, boy choirs, keyboards, outside producers or songwriters on this album, promises Gene Simmons. The best thing we did was to turn inwards to ourselves. Tommy and Eric have revitalized this band, with a work ethic and the talent to back it up. This is a real band effort. KISS has become a behemoth. We re going where no bands have gone before.
Long time fan, but not of this... I hate to say, but they have reached the bands shelf life. The kast good recording was Revenge. Nithing else memorable since.Published 1 month ago by Randy Cooke

|Looking Forward to the album, BUT -- Could this be the lamest album...||
I'm in the middle on the Gene & Paul/Ace & Peter argument. I think they should let Eric and Tommy create new characters/makeup, but then again, Ace and Peter sold their rights to their Catman and Spaceman makeup/personas back to Gene and Paul, sometime in the pre-reunion tour days. Ace and Peter,... Read More

Listening to samples on I Tunes, it's better than SB............and I liked SB. As to those complaining about it's not KISS, KISS has been Gene,Paul and 2 other guys since they bought the other 2 members out in 82(30 years ago), so I guess those 2 were all about the money way before G&P.After all...

No filler on SB? All of Paul's songs except for MDD sound like Bon Jovi B-sides from 1987. MONSTER slaps SB around.
Are you sure you guys aren't still playing RATT albums as if they're current?

I'm hopeful that the BB exclusive "Monster" edition will come with a corrected/fixed CD copy of "Destroyer Resurrected." Lol! :) It'll be interesting to see if "Monster" comes with a short live DVD (like "Sonic Boom"'s bonus DVD disc) or a second disc of...
