5.0 out of 5 stars New sound, Same Old Magic. Dec 3 2008
Format:Audio CD
First let me state that I AM A KISS FAN. If you are not a fan of Kiss you probably won't like this album. Ok, now that that it out of the way let's talk about Lick it up. Lick It Up is kiss's first non makeup release, and that start of a new era in kissology. From this album on their sound and songwriting was quite different from that of the past, their trademark sex and party lyrics notwithstanding.

Before I heard this album I was concerned that kiss may have lost their magic with the loss of two original members and the lack of their trade mark make up. I was wrong. Lick It Up for me was a pleasant surprise.

Within seconds of hearing Exciter, which is an awesome high energy tune that delivers blazing lead work from Vinnie Vincent, all of my fears were wiped away. Although the new Kiss sound was different from the past it was still Kiss and it was still awesome. Overall Lick it up is very good. My favorites are. Exciter, Lick it up, Not for the Innocent, All Hell's Breakin' Loose and a Million to One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion and fire -- Kiss are back! Aug. 27 2009
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
What a rebirth! Like a snake shedding its skin (ooh, I bet Gene would have loved my analogy there) Kiss found new life on Lick It Up. This is a strong, strong album, almost as strong as Creatures Of The Night. Fresh blood, a fresh look, and new freedom to be taken seriously as musicians gave Kiss a serious kick in the pants. It might not be considered classic today by critics, but the song "Lick It Up" only left the setlist briefly during the 96-97 reunion tour.

Witness the strenths:

1. All songs written by the band, no outside writers, thanks to the strong talents of Vinnie Vincent.
2. All songs played by the band except one solo by Rick Derringer ("Exciter").
3. A fresh sound thanks to Vinnie Vincent.

I've always said this: When restrained, Vinnie Vincent is one of my favourite guitar players. His tone on Lick It Up is just oustanding and so unique. When left to his own devices like on his solo albums, his playing sounds like razor blades in your ears. Here, he plays melodically, powerfully, and manipulates his tone with his hands like an artist. Hear his guitar whine and cry as only a master can make it do.

Every song is good, not one bad tune in the pack although "Lick It Up" is overplayed. There are five standout songs here that are sort of lost Kiss classics, every one of them brilliant and as good as anything Kiss had ever done:

"Exciter"
"Not For The Innocent" (there's a bit of Vinnie's "Boyz Are Gonna Rock" riff at the end there.)
"All Hell's Breaking Loose" (Eric Carr's Zeppelin meets Paul's rapping.)
"Dance All Over Your Face"
"And On The 8th Day" (which again was taken from Vinnie's "Boyz Are Gonna Rock" demo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get a Lick on this album! Oct. 25 2006
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
(Lick it up 1983 by KISS))

Situation:At this time KISS was at is lowest point ever the band had lost two original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss,album sales were low(Their last albums being Unmasked and Music from the Elder),concerts attendances at lowest all seemed bad.Fans got tired of KISS`s image as the makeup wasn`t exiting anymore so KISS did what they had to do to survive,they took their trademark makeup off.

Lots of good songs are on this album the title track `Lick It Up`,`All Hell`s Breakin Loose`,`Exciter` and notably Paul Stanley`s `A Milion To one`.Vinnie Vincent contributed writting on 8 songs on this album and Eric Carr wrote `All Hell`s Breakin Loose` wich is a very interresting track as Paul rapped the lyrics wich was a creative idea and original even if i don`t like rap.

Vinnie Vincent is back as lead guitarist but unfortunatly it was the only time he`s been credited for playing on a KISS album as he also played on Ceatures.KISS always had dilemas with their guitarist Ace left,Vinnie was fired,Mark St John got hurt,Bruce was fired,Ace lefte again and now there is Tommy Thayer.Vinnie was a great guitarist but his style did not match KISS`s.

While Lick It Up might not be one of KISS`s best records it will be remembered as the album they took their makeup off and they regained popularity and their fans,this album`s sales were good as KISS got their first Platinum record since Dynasty a good 5 years ago.KISS made the accomplishment of surviving and re-creating themselves and bring old fans back and bring some new fans.This album`s direction is different from `Creatures`wich was Metal,this album is more Pop-Metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars without a doubt kiss' finest release June 17 2006
Format:Audio CD
Let me preface this by saying that I am the farthest thing from a Kiss fan. Now that you know that there are no biases involved in this review, let me tell you that this was definitely Kiss' finest hour. In short, this is a soild hard rock/heavy metal album from front to back. I would say that 6 of the 10 tracks are absolute keepers (Lick it Up, A Million to One, Exciter, Young and Wasted, Not for the Innocent, All Hell's Breaking Loose), with the balance being far from lousy. The lyrical content is on par with the rest of the innuendo driven fluff in their catalogue, but musically things are very tight and energetic. I would venture to say this is a must for most any fan of hard rock. You may as well give it a try, it is under 8 bucks! You couldn't get this much joy at McDonald's for that price!!

Let's clarify this: Vinnie Vincent left Kiss because Gene and Paul decided they'd pay him a salary for writing 90% of the songs on this album with them, instead of royalties. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best
Lick It Up ranks with Kiss, Destroyer, and Alive I as their best albums. On their previous album Creatures Of The Night, Kiss went back to their heavy metal roots. Read more
