Back to the basics,
This review is from: Rock And Roll Over (Remastered) (Audio CD)
With the glitz and glamour of DESTROYER behind them, KISS turned to engineering guru Eddie Kramer to get them back to the raw sound that had made them famous. Recorded in a theater-in-the-round atmosphere, ROCK AND ROLL OVER was as close to a live recording as possible with overdubbing held to a minimum. With the gentle acoustic intro to the album's first track, I WANT YOU, KISS unleashes a fury of riff-driven power rock that ignores teenage angst and thrives on a young boy's passion.....women! With catchy hooks and Ace Frehley's scathing Les Paul, bassist Gene Simmons and guitarist Paul Stanley wildy express the joys of rock stardom. Among classic such as CALLING DOCTOR LOVE and HARD LUCK WOMAN are such overlooked gems such as LOVE 'EM LEAVE 'EM, TAKE ME, and Stanley's all-time sleeper, MR SPEED. If you are unfamiliar with KISS, this is the album to buy. Unfortunately incorrectly labled as a Heavy Metal Band, KISS is and always will be the hottest ROCK band in the world.....ENJOY!!!!
