I'm not on FAQ and I'm a diehard. Gawd, what a fucking dunce. Did Neal Peart make you do drugs too?

You know every post over there. Then you come over here acting like you're above it all.

Such a hypocrite.

If the first 2 albums sounded like DTK they would have been so much better.

The guitars, bass and drums have great separation and clarity. The guitar sound is beefy.

Too bad song wise its the weakest of the first three.
They laughed at their gods
And fought them in vain
So he turned his
back on them
And left them in pain

I always loved the sound of Paul's '78 solo disc, overall the playing and production buries most of Kiss' studio albums and Paul's voice is at its peak. Everything that came after this was a letdown apart from the sublime Sure Know Something - easily Kiss' best song.

If you listen to “Unplugged” (and the version of “Sure Know Something”), it becomes clear that Paul’s voice definitely didn’t peak in 1978.

Really? You sure do plagiarize a lot from a board you're not even on.

That wouldn’t crack my top 40 Kiss songs. So Paul can write a passable pop song, big fucking deal. Maybe my little sister might have liked it at the time, probably not.

Rock N Roll Over is all killer no filler, Love Gun has 3 good songs.

Rock N Roll Over was recorded live as a band, right?

That's not a coincidence. ACE doubled a lot of his rhythm guitar parts on those early KISS albums with acoustic guitars in order to beef up the sound.

Casablanca sucks. Kiss could have actually had mighty-sounding albums during the 70s, but it was all wasted!

The acoustic parts on the early albums were mostly done by Stanley IIRC.
