Poll Results: Your Ultimate Top 5 KISS Albums 1974-2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alrighty folks! As you know, we’ve been doing a series of Top 5 Album polls, here on the KMA, one for each decade of KISS’ output.

Most recently, we took all 28 of the results (ties included) from all 4 decades and made an Ultimate Top 5 KISS Albums poll. This has been quite a project, and we heartily thank everyone who voted!

Ready? Of course you are!

It’s time for the big reveal… What are our beautiful KMA Readers’ Top 5 KISS albums? Here are the results!

There are three different ways we can read these results…

1) Those with the most votes total, which would be all those getting 4-6 votes each:
1 – Creatures Of The Night
2 – Alive! (live)
3 – Destroyer
4 – Lick It Up
5 – Animalize

2) We could include ties in the final tally:
1 – Creatures Of The Night
2 – Alive! (live)
3 – Destroyer / Lick It Up / Animalize
4 – Alive II! / Ace Frehley (solo)
5 – Rock And Roll Over / Revenge

3) We could just look at the whole damn list:
6 Creatures Of The Night
5 Alive! (live)
4 Destroyer
4 Lick It Up
4 Animalize
3 Alive II!
3 Ace Frehley (solo)
2 Rock And Roll Over
2 Revenge
1 Dynasty
1 Love Gun
1 Crazy Nights
1 Monster
1 KISS Symphony: Alive IV (live)

And for this final round, these choices received no votes:
Music From ‘The Elder’
Unmasked
Killers
Carnival Of Souls
Alive III
KISS Unplugged (live)
Psycho Circus
You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best (live)
Sonic Boom
The Box Set (box)
The Casablanca Singles 1974-1982 (box)
Alive! The Millenium Concert (live)
KISS 40 (comp)
KISSteria – The Ultimate Vinyl Case (box)

In Sum:

Thanks so much for voting, everyone! This has been a super-fun project. We appreciate your knowledgeable input on all of these KISS albums! Fair warning, I will be using these results as a shopping list…

And no matter how you slice it, we have a clear and unanimous winner! Thanks again, everybody!

  3. Creatures! YESSSSSSSS! Cool Poll……..Animalize had a decent showing as i plugged the Animalize live show at my site…hahahaha…….

  4. An acceptable result except for Animalize, truly one of their worst albums that they have disavowed. I think that’s an artifact of picking 5 albums from the winners of picking 5 albums.

    Also nice that you included the VV cover for Creatures! Very clever!

  5. The Animalize one surprises me as well. Would not have predicted that. Otherwise it is an awesome result!! Thanks for doing the polls. They were fun.

  6. The 1001 list included Destroyer – sounds like they ought to have included Creatures too!
