KISS: Destroyer

Sound — 10
The sound on Kiss Destroyer is like most 70's hard rock. The album has a Alice Cooper and AC/DC vibe. Some of the tracks are a lot more hard rock then the others. There is excellent guitar playing on this song by Ace Frehley and Paul Stanley. The solos were aswome. Gene Simmons and Peter Criss were also amazing at doing what they do best.

Lyrics — 10
Like many other Kiss songs many of them are about sex. Others are about groupies. Some of the tracks were teenage athems like "Shout It Out Loud" and "Flamming Youth". Paul Stanley on vocals was awsome and so was Gene Simmons. Peter Criss also added a nice touch on the classic ballad "Beth".

Overall Impression — 10
Compared to other Kiss albums this one is the best. It is up there with Alive and Dressed to Kill. The most impressive songs are "God Of Thunder", "Shout It Out Loud." It captured an era when Kiss was at it's best. If only they had remained so and didn't sell out.
