People you might think i'm crazy but this another one of my favorite "KISS" albums.there's alot of good rhythm here ,straight blues rock n roll.So what if it's a little cheesy. I think Peter always sings a good ballad too.

From: Curious B Date: February 1, 2002 at 6:24
Nighttiger, you're being very generous. I played this album once when it first came out and haven't played it since. Peter proved to be the weakest link in the band. I wouldn't "don't buy this CD" it's necessary in any KISS collection. This probably will not receive much plaing time on your CD player.

I love The song "You Matter to me" and thats it. I couldnt get into this album. I tried too but I couldnt. For diehards only!!!!!!

The fact that this CD has the word KISS in the upper left-hand corner is the only reason it sold more than 500 copies. George Peter Criscoula delivers a steaming pile of yuck sure to make you long for the days of the medieval chant. While I love the guy and think that he deserves more credit for his drumming (his beats were actually an intregal part of KISS' early songs), still his songwriting was never his strength.(Who remembers Hooligan?) Buy it for a buck or two then bury it in the backyard.

A pretty pathetic effort. The solo albums pretty much proved that Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley are the only creative influences in Kiss, with the emphasis on Paul. Gene has contributed a few good songs to the Kiss Catalog but a lot more bad ones.

From: keebler Date: May 28, 2003 at 4:07
i don't play this one much it's to mellow it's not bad if you like the mellow stuff and i do sometimes just not one of my fav.

From: Jorgito Date: April 10, 2004 at 1:48
Me parece que no es un mal album, pero que desencuadra totalmente con lo que espera un fan de Kiss, Sin duda el mas flojo de los cuatro solistas.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:40
Whatever Peter was smoking during this recording, let me have some of it. Just an awful mess of an artist trying to stretch beyond his limits. One of the albums that you might think is so bad it must be good, when in fact it is so bad, it should be deleted permanently. 1/10

From: Big Mike Date: February 17, 2005 at 11:51
Not KISS and not hard rock. I still like some of the stuff on here but is not for rock fans. It's almost jazz. This is the reason Peter left, he's music of choice is not hard edged rock. Better than 1 out of 10 though. 5-6/10.

From: rocknutter2001 Date: March 15, 2005 at 9:21
I love this album just as much as the others i think you should give peter credit for doing a album he wanted to do,as it sounds nothing like a kiss album but thats what i like about it, its totally different from the others.

From: Fat Freddy Date: September 6, 2007 at 9:40
"That's The Kinda Sugar Papa Likes".... (Shudder) UGH!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 12, 2017 at 13:21
A kinda soft and weak Record to resume all...tracks 6(nice),7,8(nice),9 & 10(nice)are acceptable ones but nothing to jump outta bed though...60/100
