Rock and Roll Over
[Mercury Remasters Series]
As with Hotter Than Hell, Rock and Roll Over was a former favorite
that didn't blow me away as hard as I remembered. However, it's not terrible
either. With songs like "Love 'Em and Leave 'Em," "Hard Luck Woman" and
"Ladies Room," it has its moments.
Moving back to their rock roots (comparitively speaking to Destroyer),
producer Eddie Kramer set up shop with Kiss in an empty New York theatre and soon
enough, Rock and Roll Over spilled forth. The result is
sonically punchier, if not just a bit lacking in complete vitality.
(Listen to me, Ma! I'm waxing philosophical 'bout Kiss!)
