Rock & Roll Over

1 rating: 5.0
An album by Kiss

As the follow-up to their unusually experimentalDestroyer(nonetheless one of Kiss's best albums ever),Rock and Roll Over, released the same year, contains more conventional three-chord material. That's not a bad thing, since Kiss at their peak arguably … see full wiki

The Doctor Is Still In After All These Years

KISS fans could argue forever as to which of the band's many albums is the best. "Destroyer" is obviously a prime candidate, but not too long after its release, KISS gave us "Rock And Roll Over." While I do enjoy "Destoyer" and agree with many others that it is possibly KISS' best album, my heart always leans heavier to "Rock And Roll Over" as my personal favorite KISS offering.

Why? There are multiple reasons. Firstly, this album gave birth to one of the greatest rock tunes with a blatantly cheesy title in "Calling Dr. Love." No matter where I am or what I'm doing, when that song hits the airwaves I have to sing along. It also gave the world KISS' second most popular ballad (and a personal favorite), "Hard Luck Woman." On top of that, songs like "Take Me," "Ladies Room," "I Want You," "Love'em And Leave'em," and "Makin' Love" leave absolutely nothing to the imagination when it comes to what each song is about. The album cover was quite a bit different from previous KISS releases as well. This is pure, straightforward, rock and roll. It's one of the best party albums you can get your hands on.

If you do not own any of KISS' albums, I highly recommend that you purchase this album along with "Destroyer." Rarely does a band put out two legendary albums. KISS did it twice in the same year with "Destroyer" and "Rock And Roll Over."

Add this album to your "essentials" collection today.
