KISS (Music From The Elder) 1981





What has been considered the worst KISS album of all time (or at least when it was released anyway) has slowly been growing on me. It's a concept album like that of The Who's Tommy, which was intended to go with a proposed film based on the album. But with the fan backlash and critical drubbing of the final product, the KISS house of cards finally collapsed on itself. I understand why it was universally hated. I was one of them. Music From The Elder is definitely an acquired taste.

To the average fan or non-fan if you will, the common reaction upon listening for the first time would probably be something like "what the f*ck is this sh*t?". Like I said, an acquired taste, which I seem to be agreeing with lately. I just choose to look at it as a non-KISS album, which it is and look at it more as something different to listen to.

Out is Peter Criss, and in is new drummer Eric Carr. The album did not showcase what a monster drummer he is. He would have to wait a year for that. But the wait is well worth it.

Fave Songs: The Oath, A World Without Heroes and I. The album cover has been speculated over the years to be that of Paul Stanley's hand. It's not. It was a hand model, hired specifically for the photo shoot of the Cover. End of discussion.
