I do not think that album cover is all that bad, and even if it was the worst album cover in the history of album art, I do not care, I am just happy to get a new studio recordings from KISS.

Agree - the cover of sonic boom isn't the worst ever. The title fits KISS and I will be a first day buyer!!!

Ditto. You don't listen to the album cover.

I'll admit that I've harshed on KISS pretty bad over the past few years for their decision to slap Ace and Peter's makeup on Tommy and Eric and endlessly touring as a nostalgia act, but I gotta say, the fact that they're finally releasing some new music with this lineup sorta legitimizes them in my eyes. Without any new tunes they've basically been their own tribute band for the past seven or eight years.

I can't vote because the Kiss album I hate the most is Unmasked. The ones that are listed I actually like... a lot.

Yea, UNMASKED should've been one of the choices cuz that one dwells near the bottom of the KISS pile in my book too.

Actually, I was just purusing through my Kiss stuff recently because I havent listened to some of these albums in awhile, and ASYLUM shouldve made this list too.

The reason it's on the list can be summed up in five words: "I Finally Found My Way." sick

Very true...kick out Elder and replace it with Asylum.

Well, maybe not just because of THAT song but it's the worst offender. If I may quote myself from earlier in this thread...

Psycho Circus isn't KISS' worst album but it was still a disappointment to me. There are four tracks I really like (title track, "You Wanted The Best," "Within," "Into The Void") and the rest is just filler, filler, filler. Peter's ballad "I Finally Found My Way" is just embarrassing.

I now realize that I should've mentioned "I Pledge Allegiance To The State of Rock N Roll" as a fifth good song, but I stand by the rest of my earlier statement. Laughing

'Unmasked' was not KISS's finest hour but I like alot of the songs on that disc such as "Is That You?' and........ ok maybe it is not so great after all.

Ace's "Talk To Me" is an OK track from UNMASKED... I actually saw him play that one live at one of his solo gigs once. It was pretty funny cuz I think I was the only person in the room who knew the song, when he busted into it the majority of the audience was like "???"

Yes thank you 'Talk to Me' is another good tune off that CD, not a great CD but its entertaining unlike 'Hot in the Shade' which is horrid.

Of those 5 albums listed, the only 2 I own are Carnival of Souls (which I like) and Psycho Circus (which I put in the "meh" catagory). So while I wouldn't say it's the worst ever, I will say I don't like it much, aside from a few songs.

i like Unmasked, (remind me typical old early 80s disco nights) a lot and CoS too, cos its heavy and dark/doomy. Psych Circus is bad but not so bad as HitS.

I went with Crazy Nights. Ron Nevison's production made this album way too slick.

I like unmasked!!!! I agree, that the worst KISS album is Hot In The Shade!!!! That album blows goats!!!! 2 OK songs, 1 good song (I like Forever - the only HIT of an album that means HITS), the rest, blah - KISS on auto pilot. The production is horrid and the album is just cleaned up demos.

I also agree with 'Psycho Circus' being one of the better albums. It was actually my first KISS album that I own on cassette (my dad bought the CD for himself and all I had at 7-8 years of age was a tape deck so he bought the tape for me; now since my dad's passing, I now own his copy as well as a huge amount of KISS albums, amongst others).

I selected 'Hot in the Shade' (which my dad owned... brrr). I just can't sit through it, with the exception of 'Little Ceaser', but I like Eric Carr a lot, soooo.

I own the remastered version of 'MftE' and it's not too bad. Doesn't get much plays tho'. I haven't listened to 'Crazy Nights', as my youngest brother claimed the album a long time ago. 'CoS'... I think I only liked a few tracks and that was it. That album baffles my brain, leaving me asking, '... what the hell was that'.

Carnival Of Souls is their worst by far! I actually LOVE Hot In The Shade and Crazy Nights and really like Psycho Circus.

I completely disagree I personally love 'Carnival of Souls', I think it is an excellent and very underrated KISS album, where I still do not care for 'Hot in the Shade'.
