Kiss: Love Gun (Deluxe Edition)

Album Review

Sex pistol repolished to an uncomfortable sheen.

Gene Simmons says of this two-CD set: “The only thing our tunes hopefully have is some catchy melodies and something you can sing along with.” It’s true. With a running time of a little over 30 minutes, Love Gun, Kiss’s sixth studio album (1977), is chock-full of snappy, three-minute pop-metal diamonds, among them a trio of crown-jewel classics: I Stole Your Love, Shock Me (with Ace Frehley’s debut lead vocal) and the title track.
