    King Of The Night Time World : Hel yeah I'll have some of that please! Peter sounds great! Love that snare. It's just out there. Genes bass is a bit buried but if you listen he's play really well. Like it a lot. The groovy part is Ace & Paul. Like two puzzle pieces their guitars fit together and compliment each other very nicely.
    I will be nice and say nothing about the headlight Queen, or what it is she's been doing to receive her crown. Hmmmmmmm

    Yes, I believe they're from "Love Her All I Can" (except the sweet potato pie part :))

    There should be a song about sweet potato pie like that!

    Robert Cray has a pretty good album by the name of Sweet Potato Pie, but alas, no title track! :shake:

    This is what the actual CD looked like:

    God Of Thunder : Demon's Theme! Ok so Paul wrote it, but Gene fooking OWNS it! No one who has heard this,especially from that era, could ever associate this song with anyone or anything? else but Gene! Heavy production, but it all works. Peters drums got a sound that just resonates. Not sure how they got it but I like it. (ok ty @GodShifter ,I went back & read your write up. Groovy, should've done that first.) Ace's solo as always is just freaking awesome, fits perfectly. This song hit the spot with me first time I heard it at 22, still Love it. This album got blasted from my van stereo through Universal cabinets all summer long. Actually it was a mainstay for a long time
    I seem to remember St Pauli Girls dark & KISS going quite well together. Yes indeed very well!

    One of the highlights of the 1996 reunion.

    You've Got Great Expectations: Such an over the top tune. Super Heavy production. Kids Choir. Orchestra. Is this KISS? Bet your ever loving bippy it is! Love it for all those reasons, but also because it shows a side of Gene not seen too often. Yeah the words "sound" like typical Gene, but the music, the mood says different. It's almost as if the line has an unsaid ending "You've got great expectations"..... but we are only human! Yeah you see us up on this stage, playing singing and you want more of us... every last drop of blood sweat & tears, every last note we can play or sing and then you want more.... you've got great expectations but we're still only human.
    It comes off a little sad, a little melancholy and not so bombastic. I love it for showing they're human.... And still gave us a lot to dig on. Peace

    PS love the Tubular Bells. Almost added them to my kit. Hey it was the 70s everything was over the top. Anybody wanna buy a sequined jump suit & matching 4 inch platform shoes? LMFAO

    Flaming Youth : I dig the message, lime Genes base kinda reminds me of Paul McCartney not sure why, the whole things like Alice & Townsend had a love child or a Flaming Youth. Just a feeling, but then I'm just a drummer and have no melodic sensibilities. :D do not like the Calliope like keys, never did. Just so...... what's that word? oh yeah UNKISS like. Ace to the rescue. Ace Rules the end thank you very much.

    I fell into another thread "Is There Even An Audience For Rock & Roll" or something like that. Met a few nice people there, @Chris DeVoe and @Radio Jammor in particular and @Exile On My Street has even dropped in. But (I know terrible grammar starting a sentence with but) there are a couple of real snarky guys always contradictory. What I'm saying I guess is no thread I've ever seen is like this was. Got really spoiled. What a pleasure this thread was because of the caliber of you gentlemen. Participation in this thread will always be the highlight of my experience with SHMF. I thank you people and @GodShifter 'S guidance. I wish you all safe, happy and healthy Holiday. Peace my friends, Iam

    There are a lot of snippy, disgruntled music listeners on this forum. I'm really at the point where I don't even want to involve myself in any of the discussions.

    Everybody hates everything, released or unreleased. It all sucks. :laugh:

    Happy holidays to everyone reading! This really was the best thread I've ever participated in. It comes down to each and every one of you, what a classy bunch of dudes! :tiphat:

    @GodShifter - Sorry I didn't participate in your WACF thread. I'm overwhelmed with work for the holidays so I couldn't partake in as many threads as I would have liked.

    Looks like KISS is taking most if not all of 2018 "off"?? I wonder what's going on, are they planning for the 45th Anniversary in 2019?

    yeah been wondering about that. maybe they'll do a shorter tour for the 45th, maybe a scaled back "unplugged " tour? maybe select venues for multiple nights with time for rest in between. Us geriatric rockers gotta take it easy you know:D

    Sweet Pain : this is the quirkiest song ever. I mean that in a good way. I like the bass a lot when Gene finally cuts loose. Also love the vocals . There's enough growls, grunts and oWwwws in it for a whole album. Are those women singing back up or a couple of guys whose voice has not changed yet? hey come on its a valid question! No?

    Watch that Yule Log now y'all

    Sorry way behind, but then no one seems to be here much but me and one or two others. All good things must...... Not End so.........

    Shout It Out Loud : I can't hear you! I said Shout It Out Loud.... A little better, but I said SHOUT IT OUT LOUD!!! Alright ! What a great anthem! You know when you hear this you wanna... no you gotta, Rock. Your fist is up in the air, don't lie you know I'm right. How can you not? Great vocals by Gene and Paul, trading off the way we like it! Freaking Ace kills it Peter is great.... Damn this may be my favorite KISS anthem ever! So come on KISS Army Vets LETS SHOUT IT OUT LOUD! Rock on dudes,peace!

    New Years Eve 74? Nassau Coliseum KISS ! Great show. Seen them 3 - 4 times at the Garden, but I don't think any were New Year. If I missed that party it's a shame..... Orrrr maybe I didn't miss it and maybe that's why I don't remember? Hmmmmm
    Brother have a safe one! Blessed Be, Iam
