4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own Rock Classic, December 6, 2007
This review is from: Kiss (Remastered) (Audio CD)
The debut album by Kiss is a MUST HAVE for rock fans. Like Van Halen's debut, Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" or AC/DC's "Back in Black", "Kiss" is one of the foundations of rock n' roll. Listening to this disk with fresh ears, it's amazing just how ahead of their time Kiss was. This album, now over three decades old, was a blueprint of where music was headed. Tunes like "Strutter" & "Cold Gin" foreshadow the 80's rock of bands like "Warrant" and "Skid Row". The thumping bass lines provided by Gene Simmons along with his gutteral growl on vocals set a template by which 90's metal should be measured. The musicianship is great, Ace sounds like a polished professional, Paul Stanley's vocals sound strong and Peter Criss drives the songs with a thundering drumbeat. Criss, often remembered only vocally for "Beth", really shines on "Black Diamond" as well. This is a great band effort, and the music really captures the genuine talent of all the original members.

I remember seeing early videos and concert footage of Kiss. Ace's smoking guitar and Peter completely surrounded by his drum kit was a huge influence on me playing music!!!
