Very early 70's. Not KISS at all, but not bad.

I get more of an Al Pacino vibe ... or a cross between the two.

Agreed, but I do wish they didn't sound try to sound so much like carbon copies of the originals and introduced something new.

Here's an original song, "I, Oh I". Eric Singer is his drummer, btw. CD & vinyl coming March 19.

That song and video are the ultimate cheese. But it really does capture a kind of mid-60/to early 70's Chi-Lites/Isley Brothers vibe even though the lyrics are even weaker than Paul's voice. The song actually reminds me a lot of the Isley Brothers' "This Old Heart Of Mine" mixed with "Sooner Or Later" by The Grass Roots.

I saw that James Taylor just put out a new album of really old songs (ones that were before Rock And Roll came around) and of course countless other musicians have done the same thing. Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow, etc. I know that the inspiration well has run dry by their age but I would rather hear them perform crappy original stuff than crappy cover versions of old songs.

I had KISS in my rotation on my mountain biking ride this weekend and "Monster" was the album. Goddamn it is awful. I know the guys are old but when they stopped singing about pussy, everything just got gradually worse ("All Hell's Breaking Loose" is the exception...but even it is crazy cheesy).

I like it. Can't say I'd buy it but I do like it.

There's a 40th anniversary Creatures of the Night set coming out in November:


Amazon Amazon


I'd get it but that price is horseshit -- I have the previously released vinyl. Creatures in Dolby Atmos should be unreal, though.


Speaking of which, they're re-releasing a 40th anniversary standalone vinyl IN "Half-Speed?"

Looks awesome. This is how you do a super deluxe boxset.

I have the Destroyer one and it is fantastic. No regrets.

I just wish they would do this for every album.

Looks great but a bit too rich for my blood. I'll probably pick up the half-speed mastered vinyl though (I currently only have the mid 80's vinyl with the revised non-makeup cover).

I skipped the Destroyer box and reissue vinyl, but I did pick up the CD version and Amazon gave me the contents of the full deluxe version via Autorip. Kind of hoping they will do the same with this, since I am only interested picking up the new half speed vinyl.

Don't want all the extra crap liker posters, postcards, guitar picks, whatever, would prefer a CD release with all the audio.
