Facts Release Date: 1976 Run Time: 34:03 Rhythm Guitar: Paul Stanley Lead Guitar: Ace Frehley Bass Guitar: Gene Simmons Drums: Peter Criss Shared Vocals except for Frehley Tracks 1. Detriot Rock City I would say the best and loudest song on the album. I think it is a great way to start off the album. Stanley does a decent job on vocals but the real beauty is how the band comes together. 2. King of the Night Time World The chorus is very catchy and the music isn't bad to rock out to. It is a decent track but nothing special. 3. God of Thunder This had to be one of the most underrated rock songs of all time. Gene's vocals are kind of scary while the guitars slowly grind away. The guitar solo leaves a haunting feel over the entire song. I love the background noise and effects in this song. 4. Great Expectations The lyrics are well straight forward to having a great time with the opposite sex. Simmons tries so hard to be a great singer here but he really isn't. They use an orchestra on this song however it really doesn't help it that much. 5. Flaming Youth The guitar solo and the ending save this song from being completely boring. 6. Sweet Pain One of the stronger tracks on the album. It has a nice guitar riff and drumming performance. Vocals are on par to what you would expect from a Kiss album. 7. Shout it Out Loud Stanley and Simmons share the vocals in this song. One of their most known songs and it isn't bad. Can seem repetitive but it makes you want to shout out loud with of course no pun intended. 8. Beth What happened to Kiss? Actually, it is a beautiful song with a lot of meaning. I honestly think that Criss doesn't get enough vocal time. 9. Do you Love Me? It is an ok way to end out an album. The song is pretty in your face when the chorus comes in but then dies down once Stanley starts to howl the versus. 10. Rock and Roll Party (Ghost Track) This is a bonus track if you will that isn't listed on the song list. It is just a slow instrumental/effects song. Final Thoughts A few good songs does not make a good album. The members of kiss were decent on their instruments but not the best on vocals. The songwriting is decent though. I'll give it a 7/10 based on the fact there are some hidden gems in the album.
