    Keeping the flame burning

    With Destroyer, KISS proved that the success of Alive! was no fluke. Further, the band proved that they could record a consistently good studio album. Bob Ezrin, Alice Cooper's longtime producer was brought in to helm this project and his experience as a producer and engineer really helps to bring out the best in KISS. Special note to the reviewer who gave this album only one star: do not make blanket statements like "no one really likes these songs." The fact is, dear sir or madame, you are in a minority because many people do love these songs and that is why Destroyer ranks high among KISS's best albums. It is true that not every song is a winner. "Flaming Youth," for example, is a dud with or without the caliope break in the middle eight. But, overall many KISS concert staples are included here: "Detroit Rock City" & "God of Thunder" became instant classics. The latter has become so identified with Gene Simmons that one can forget that the song was written by Paul Stanley. A demo featuring Stanley singing lead vocals can be heard on the 2001 KISS Box Set. "Do You Love Me?" may contain juvenile lyrics, but are they anymore juvenile than "Hotter Than Hell," "Firehouse" or "C'mon & Love Me?" Any band other than KISS could not credibly record such songs, but KISS make the lyrics believable to a point. Whatever one may think of "Beth," it is a sweet, tender love song that perfectly captures the frustrations of a rock star juggling his career and a relationship. "Shout it Out Loud" almost eclipses "Rock n Roll All Nite" as an anthem and the former may indeed have become KISS' signature song had the latter not been recorded first. Arguably, this may not have been KISS's best album, but it did prove that they were indeed a force to be reckoned with in rock music.
