There are all kinds of bands that I'd be more positive towards if the deal was I didn't have to listen to them. So, no, you want to be an adjunct on Team Heston, you have to be miserable for the experience.
then no deal!
Someday you'll look back and realize this was a serious, life-changing fork-in-the-road moment. And that you dodged a bazooka shell.

Any chance of positive nostalgia from the early years has been ruined by everything that came since. And I mean the crappy music and all the members asshole statements.
Paul, Ace and Peter were lovable assholes though.
Adjective unwarranted.
I will say that Paul is at least not a republican, or if he is, it’s moderate enough to criticize trump.

Only because they seem not to be in the spotlight so much, but anytime I see something about them I hate them more.

The irony of KISS is that given they're all about hype, they really depend on lowered expectations.

Heston what’s your opinion on Creatures of the Night? I reckon it’s the last good thing they did. Definitely more Judas Priest sounding than their early stuff but possibly my favorite of theirs outside the debut.

Ha! I actually listened to this album today (inspired by reading this thread). It's one of the few KISS records I'll listen to from front to back. Great drum sound throughout.

It’s got that 80s gated reverb sound but not quite into phil Collins territory yet.

I've never heard it. I can only appreciate KISS by regressing back to my preteen self, and I'd moved on from metal by the time they'd released that album.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Yet you and all the other naysayers keep coming back to this thread. All closet KISS fans if you ask me, especially Doc.

Hello,

I think the reason this thread has so many pages is because many love to hate and hate to love (paraphrasing Elvis Costello here).
