iTunes Review

KISS’s fourth studio album, Destroyer, had been the group’s great leap forward in terms of concept and production. The earlier double LP Alive! had broken them commercially but also pointed out that their studio releases lacked the energy and firepower of their concerts. Alice Cooper/Lou Reed producer Bob Ezrin—a man of serious musical training—helped educate the group on music theory. As 1976’s Destroyer neared its 35th anniversary, Ezrin approached the group about doing a remix and rerelease of the original album. With band approval, Ezrin brought the 16-track analog master tapes into the 21st century. Ace Frehley’s original guitar solo for “Sweet Pain” was included on this edition, with Dick Wagner’s better-known solo featured as a bonus track. Additional vocals omitted from the original mix were brought back to fortify “Detroit Rock City” and “Beth,” and the entire album received a re-equalization with the guitars becoming brighter, tougher, and louder. The song “Rock and Roll Party” (which had only been available on the first pressings of the original album’s vinyl as a "hidden track") was added to complete the overhaul.

Very cool

I pre ordered kiss's new album monster so I might get this some other time I also like the new remixes!

Sweet Pain Guitar Solos

I think that it is not exactly correct to say that the songs are labeled backwards -- it depends on what you take "Original" to mean. Track 11, Original Guitar Solo, is the original guitar solo that was released in 1976. Track 6, 2012 Remix, is the alternative solo that was not released in 1976, so the way that the tracks are labeled is technically accurate. Where you can get disappointed by buying the wrong thing if you only by Track 11 because it says "Original Solo" is to assume that the alternative solo that wasn't used in 1976 is the "Original Solo." I can see what 0135boom is saying though. They should have made Track 11 be Track 6 to keep the original flow of the album, and tacked Track 6 on at the end labeling it "Alternative Solo" or something similar so that the extra new track is at the end and not in the middle.

great remix

Ezrein did a stellar job, drums sound a lot better.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Rooted in the campy theatrics of Alice Cooper and the sleazy hard rock of glam rockers the New York Dolls, Kiss became a favorite of American teenagers in the '70s. Most kids were infatuated with the look of Kiss, not their music. Decked out in outrageously flamboyant costumes and makeup, the band fashioned a captivating stage show featuring dry ice, smoke bombs, elaborate lighting, blood spitting, and fire breathing that captured the imaginations of thousands of kids. But Kiss' music shouldn't be...
