80 Gram heavyweight vinyl with Download. Kiss' 1974 self-titled debut is one of hard rock's all-time classic studio recordings. Kiss is chock full of their best and most renowned compositions, containing elements of Rolling Stones / New York Dolls party-hearty rock and roll, Beatles tunefulness, and Sabbath / Zep heavy metal, and wisely recorded primal and raw by producers Richie Wise and Kenny Kerner (of Gladys Knight fame). Main songwriters Stanley and Simmons each had a knack for coming up with killer melodies and riffs, as evidenced by 'Nothin' to Lose' and 'Deuce' (by Simmons), 'Firehouse' and 'Black Diamond' (by Stanley), as well as 'Strutter' and '100,000 Years' (collaborations by the two). Also included is the Ace Frehley alcohol anthem 'Cold Gin,' 'Let Me Know' (a song that Stanley played for Simmons upon their very first meeting, then titled 'Sunday Driver'), and one of Kiss' few instrumentals: the groovy 'Love Theme from Kiss' (penned by the entire band). Along with 1976's 'Destroyer', Kiss' self-titled debut is their finest studio album, and has only improved over the years. - Kiss
