Best KISS Album?

I still can't decide between, Destroyer, Alive!, Alive 2!, Love Gun, and Rock and Roll Over! What's your favorite KISS Album?

I got into KISS right after they took off the makeup, so my favorite album is probably Lick It Up followed closely by Revenge.

The classic albums are all good up through Love Gun, and I was surprised that Music From the Elder has some decent tracks and one really great track, "I".

Pretty much every KISS album has something to offer, with the exception of Unmasked and the Peter Criss solo album.

I also started listening to them when they took off the makeup.
Revenge is probably my favorite KISS CD. I love that CD, especially Domino, I Just Wanna, Unholy, Take It Off, Tough Love, Spit, God Gave Rock & Roll to You, & Every Time I Look at You. Also like the Crazy Nights CD. Favorite Greatest Hits of their's is Smashes Thrashes & Hits cause of love Eric Carr's version of Beth.

I didn't like the 80s KISS that much. I felt they sounded just like every other hair band out there. But then they came back with Revenge and the KISS Dynasty returned....Then it left....Again....For about the 4th or 5th time....

Oh man,This is a hard one !
I really like Dressed to Kill but my man Ace does make his vocal debut with "Shock me" on the Love Gun album.
I dont know if this counts but the Ace solo record from the 70's is one of my favorite records of all time.

Isn't Alive (and Alive II) a studio album?

I would go with Dressed to Kill as far as studio album but not by much over Destroyer. I really disliked Crazy Nights/Hot In The Shade etc. from that period but Revenge was pretty good.

Ace Frehley's solo KISS album rules!

All the '70s stuff was amazing.

Kiss was awesome until Ace left & then it went downhill.
They started sounding like every other cock rock band out there.

My fave and my first album I got at the age of 5, Love Gun. Any of their makeup stuff is good, including Lick It Up, even the disco ones I enjoyed.

The first one is my favorite by far, with Rock And Roll Over coming in 2nd.
Actually, Kiss - The Originals would probably be my favorite (it was a reissue of the first three albums all packaged together) but I don't know if that counts...
