Your Favourite 1970s KISS Albums

Further to discussion in the comments on this blog, after I posted Love Gun, there seems to be some differences in favourite albums by this band’s 1970s output.

Incredibly, KISS released 7 studio albums, 4 solo records, 2 live albums, 2 boxed sets, and 1 compilation between 1974-1979! That’s a frickin’ busy 6 years!

I thought a quick poll might lead to some more discussion, so let’s have at it, shall we?

Pick your Top 5 faves and then let the comments begin!

    I’m still genuinely baffled by how much folk love Kiss, I mean they looked cool but ….

    Still I voted for Destroyer, for ‘Detroit R.C’.

    I chose the two “Alive” albums, Double Platinum, Destroyer and Rock N Roll Over. The first Alive was such a pivotal album for me at 9 years old. I think “Parasite” was the first riff-based song I ever loved. Even though Double Platinum was a compilation with no new songs (“Strutter 78” doesn’t really count) I had to have it and still love it. I asked my father to lend me the money so I could buy it the day it was released, and I don’t think I ever paid him back. I’ll send him a check later this week. Haha.

    Looking forward to the general consensus here. Can’t imagine The Originals will rank highly only because I think it’s pretty rare. I have the sheet music book of The Originals. Too bad it’s in terrible shape. Could’ve been worth some money (which would help me pay back my dad).

      Dads are awesome that way, eh Rich? I remember my Dad bought me Joshua Tree when we were out of town so I could play in a hockey tournament. I played that thing to death. Now, I’m not comparing U2 to KISS, but applauding awesome Dads. 🙂

      Those are great choices, as far as I know, Rich! Thanks for your votes!
