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!!
