The title track is a definite sign that a heavier sound is in the making, with the song having a theme of underdogs by day being winners at night.
"Saints And Sinners" has Gene's demonic voice there, and evidence of Vinnie Vincent's guitar, a different but still great contrast from Ace's trademark licks, and one that would really come into fruition on Lick It Up. Telling off a goody-two shoes woman has never been so great"Kiss my heart bye-bye/and I don't need no one at all."
The loud anthemic braggadocio of a female conquest in "Keep Me Comin'" shows KISS having lost none of its another-notch-on-the-belt 'tude.
Then comes one of two songs written by Gene Simmons, with assistance from Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance(!!) "Rock And Roll Hell" describes the plight of a rocker burned out, trapped by the music game, wanting to scrabble up to #1.
The protagonist in "Danger" seems to be one burning the candle at both ends, grabbing life by the throat, and thundering drums and Vincent's guitarwork mirrors the frantic life: "Oh I wanna know/how far to go/takin' my life in my hands/out on my own/fighting alone/call me the desperate man."
The next three songs were co-written by Vinnie Vincent.Read more ›
