rock & roll all nite- 10/10- the best known rock anthem of the 70's. a wonderful note to go out on.

Although KISS had only released two albums by the time 1975 had begun, they had already shown that they had some serious potential to become rock legends. Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley were all rock and roll geniuses, and had proven the point on their first two albums. However, the first album that would bring the band some major popularity would be their third studio album, 1975's Dressed To Kill. How does it measure up? Read on and find out.
There's a reason that this became the first wildly successful KISS album - It's one of the best ones they've ever recorded. Fron start to finish, the boys serve up some of the finest classic hard rockers that have ever been recorded. Room Service kicks the album off, and I don't think they could have started the album off in a better way. Two Timer is a solid second track, as well. Ladies In Waiting is a Gene Simmons composition, and as you probably expected, it's a damn fine one, too. Getaway features Peter Criss on lead vocals, and Ace serves up one of his classic riffs. You've gotta love Ace's guitar mastery. Rock Bottom features an excellent melodic intro and, not long thereafter, becomes a pretty cool up tempo rocker - one of the band's most underrated songs, in my opinion. C'mon And Love Me would become a pretty big hit for the band, and it's not surprising that it did - this is an awesome song. Anything For My Baby isn't one of the stand out tracks on the album, but it's still a very good song. She and Love Her All I Can are also excellent rockers, just what you'd expect from KISS. Closing out the album is one of the band's biggest hits, Rock And Roll All Nite. This version isn't nearly as good as the more popular live version from Alive!, but it's solid nonetheless.Read more ›
