5.0 out of 5 stars A KISS still a KISS.... Oct. 9 2012
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I think it's safe to say that even though they've truly upset and angered some fans (to the point of leaving the KISS army) Paul and Gene still command a vast KISS army around the world. With Sonic , Boom, KISS was back and it was a nice return after 11 years of complete studio silence and lack of a new album. SB was mostly well received as a return to form and a great KISS album. Then there are fans who didn't buy the album because it's not KISS and it's disrespectful to Ace and Peter who were the originals to have Tommy and Eric wear their makeup. I understand both sides completely and agree with both, but I liked Sonic Boom for what it was and three years later it's follow up (and 20th!) KISS album, Monster is I have to say better. While I was glad that there was a new KISS album and I enjoyed it, SB sounded a little too 80's rooted at times. However, Monster is heavier, doesn't feel like 80's KISS and its edgy and aggressive and did I say heavy? The guitars are turned up LOUD and the drum is almighty, the sound that comes from it is massive, anthemic and fist pumping Hard Rock formula pushing far into Metal territory and as a fan, that's good. It helps that there are no ballads either. At this point it shouldn't be about "Fake KISS" and so on like there was a lot of talk on the Sonic Boom Amazon page, the music should stand on its own. Buying the new KISS album was always like an event, an obligation in some way whether it was Love Gun or Dynasty or Crazy Nights and now, Monster.

Opening track and first single "Hell or Halleluiah" is in your face heavy, and I was surprised at how fast it sounded. To me it sounds like something from Love Gun in '77 like "I Stole Your Love" meets the speed of "Gimme More" from Lick It Up or perhaps another fast 80's KISS tune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncharted Territory Dec 26 2013
Format:Audio CD
We've been hearing the hype for months about the "bombastic drum sound", the "Destroyer mixed with Revenge" comparison, the "paying tribute to our influences" and the "Thayer really out did himself on this one" comments.

I LOVE IT. It is a logical progression from Sonic Boom. It has elements that draw from Carnival of Souls, Rock & Roll Over, Love Gun, Revenge, Destroyer, etc. First thing noticed was that Hell or Hallelujah had some speed and intensity to it which reminds me of the exciting "I stole Your Love" album opening vibe. Second thing noticed was the classic rock twinges: "Outta This World" has a Mississippi Queen riff twisted in, "Long Way Down" has Zeppelin influence throughout reminiscent of Out On The Tiles or something from Physical Graffiti, "Hell Or Hallelujah" has guitar/vocal trade offs like the mighty Zep, "The Devil Is Me" guitar solo is incredibly different for Tommy and reminds me of Whole Lotta Love Jimmy Page. "All For The Love Of Rock N Roll" sounds totally classic rock. Even Though I see all these great influences & roots, when I step back and look at the big picture: MONSTER is uncharted territory and unlike almost any of their other albums......this is why I love it so much.

Paul's songs are very solid and riffs give me random flashbacks to Mr. Speed, All American Man, Take It Off, King Of The Nightime World, Danger Us, Etc. While Paul's voice may be a little shaky live lately, this is not apparent on the album and he can still put down some great vocals in the studio. "Last Chance" rocks!!

Tommy's guitar solos are different from the Sonic Boom, Ace Frehley style safe & predictable sound. They are definitely stepped up and all a little different. This is THE BEST PART OF THE ALBUM.

2.0 out of 5 stars bargain basement vinyl Dec 19 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Seriously, after being a paying fan since 1976, this vinyl release is quite a letdown in KI$$ product. We used to get value for the money. Here, no poster, no goodies of any kind. No sticker, no tattoos (okay,I wasn't really expecting THAT!) Even the weight of the vinyl seems somehow light compared to other releases.
Music-wise, this album is superior to Sonic Boom, mainly because the lead guitarist isn't continually lifting pre-played solos from Ace Frehley. The production is pretty-sub-par unfortunately, mainly due to the overt compression where the sound has very little separation from the quiet and the loud. Listen to Animalize, or COTN, both were very loud heavy records, yet there was plenty of breathing room overhead, where you could still turn the volume up without inducing ear-fatigue from this artificial clipping/limiting, etc.
( Note to engineers these days: we have our own volume knobs at home , thankyou very much,we don't need YOU buggering that up anymore.)

I have reviewed the album elsewhere favorably, so I won't go into that here. I WOULD like a remix of this album. Paul, you produced Animalize wonderfully...what happened here....another victim of the loudness wars?

3.0 out of 5 stars I hope it's the last one!!! July 3 2013
Format:Audio CD
As far as I'm concerned, this is an OK Kiss album. I like about 5 or 6 songs. The biggest problems are these: THe lack of originality and the production!! Every song sounds like an old kiss song. It is clear to me that they can't come up with anything new or surprising!! As for the production I find it too loud!! I prefer when Kiss sounds like a rock and roll band, not a metal one! I personally dislike the first 5 or 6 songs on the album, whereas the last ones are better. Even if All for the love of rock and roll has nothing new to offer, it is my favorite track. I know most of the Kiss fans are quite satisfied with this new release, but as an old fan I am disappointed. Three stars is just enough.
