iTunes Review

Kiss’ 20th studio album features Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, guitarist Tommy Thayer, and drummer Eric Singer, with the latter two donning makeup in the styles of Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, respectively, to give the illusion that this was ’70s-styled Kiss in their heyday. The double entendres (sometimes single entendres), the super-catchy choruses, and the simple guitar riffs never went out of style for the group, but somehow Monster sounds like they researched what worked best for them and then actually made it happen. “Hell or Hallelujah” is a decent audience play for Paul Stanley to further induce partying at their concerts, with “Wall of Sound” nailing touches of Hotter Than Hell–style hard rock riffage. It’s obvious that Gene Simmons would make a vocal appearance on “The Devil Is Me,” just as Stanley needs to take the mic for “All for the Love of Rock & Roll,” which sounds like it came from his 1978 solo album. “Eat Your Heart Out” adds more cowbell than heard on any other Kiss album in history. It's quite the comeback.

I can't wait to memorize all the lyrics to every song on this album so I can scream them at the top of my lungs while I'm driving alone on the freeway with all the windows rolled down.


Probably the best KISS album since Destroyer or Revenge. I'm not kidding. Insane riffs. Killer drums. Amazing songs.
Buy it.


I've liked Kiss since about 1976. I haven't really liked anything they have put out in years. This stuff has an edge I guess, but it's just boring music. Doesn't feel inspired, and it's just empty songs about typical lyrics about girls for the most part. Something creepy about 60 year old guys wanting to bang anything on 2 legs. They can still put on a good rock show for sure but the song writing is stale.

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...
