    Easy-peasy for me!

    God Gave Rock n Roll - Dreck.

    Childhood’s End - I appreciate it, but it’s never been a favourite.

    Psycho Circus - Never liked this song in the slightest. Doesn’t sound anything like Kiss.

    Journey of 1,000 Years - Fairly boring. A lot of the Revenge/Carnival tracks that have already been eliminated are better.

    It’s My Life - As above. I never thought this was very good.

    Amazed at how I seem to like the album Psycho Circus more than I thought.

    My picks -
    God Gave RNR To You II
    Master & Slave
    Childhood's End
    Into The Void
    It's My Life

    A few words on the last elimination:

    13-Domino - as I've said I just don't get this song and it's the only song on Revenge I skip
    14-Heart of Chrome
    - I think this is a great tune, certainly love Paul's delivery and the complex rhythms and rock solid drumming from Eric Singer
    15-Paralyzed - I think this is a really good song; but I think Unholy and Thou Shalt Not are certainly better tunes
    16-Tough Love - Top 10 best Paul tune for me. I love all the progressive parts and Singer is phenomenal on it.
    17-Dreamin’ - another favorite of mine. Tommy's lead, Paul's vocal and his lyrics are all very strong
    18-I Just Wanna - This is a lesser track from Revenge, and the weakest of the three Vinnie co-writes. It's not bad, just not something that makes my KISS playlists

    I think the arrangement is great and it's a jaw dropping, incredible vocal from Gene.
    What's missing is some lead playing on the outro...who made that decision made a huge mistake.

    I only chose 3:

    God Gave RnR to You II
    Hate
    Master and Slave

    The rest of them I like on a pretty much even scale.

    Haha if it makes you feel any better, I like Paralyzed and Tough Love as much as you do! I’m very surprised to see only two Revenge tracks left in the running considering that that album is lauded far more regularly by die-yards than Carnival or Circus.

    Once you get past Unholy....it's kind of disappointing to be honest. Ezrin did his best to shape these songs into something, the albums production/sound was far superior to Hot in the Shade yet it fell short imo.

    Into the Void
    Journey of 1,000 Years
    It's My Life

    The top 2 were tough choices, but something had to go.

    You see I don’t even really disagree with you on a personal level. I love the production and music - there are a lot of great hooks and clever flourishes on it - but most of the lyrics are embarrassing and some of the songs outright suck. I’m just surprised because most fans I interact with rave about that album and I expected it to do much better.

    But here’s a question for ya, Deuce: what are we doing next? These have been so much fun that I’ll be sad if they come to an end here. How about polls for the solo albums or similar?

    Yeah, two solo albums each, since the poll can only be 25 at most I think,voting for least favorite then the best of each against each other.

    Ideas I'm bouncing around.

    - Solo Albums poll - 39 songs total
    - Favourite albums poll (20 studio + 5 Live ones)
    - A 1974-2020 popularity poll using the top songs from all 7 polls conducted so far as voted on by all of us

    other ideas are more than welcome

    Those are all good. I thought of a poll of your favorite four album run including live albums. It's obvious one of the first two sets would come out on top but the discussion might be interesting.

    1st - Alive
    Destroyer - Alive II
    Solo Albums
    Dynasty - Creatures
    Lick It Up - Crazy Nights
    Hot In The Shade - Carnival Of Souls (Alive III in this one)
    Psycho Circus - Monster (Alive IV in this one)

    Now that I think a little more on the above poll, you can have people choose their four favorites. That way if people want to vote for the first two they still have two other choices. Plus it works well with how you split up the polls.

    "God Gave Rock 'n' Roll To You II" (good song, just overplayed IMO)
    "Master and Slave"
    "Childhood's End"
    "Jungle" (it's far better when Bruce Kulick and John Corabi do it, IMO)
    "Journey of 1,000 Years"
