REVIEWS
Average points: 4.82 (Reviews: 11)
******
Das wohl ungewöhnlichste aller Kiss Werke ist das Konzeptalbum "Music From the Elder". Wenn man sich dieses Album einmal anhört ohne zu wissen, wer da spielt, kommt man zunächst gar nicht auf die Idee, das es sich hierbei um Kiss handelt. Musikalisch ist das alles sehr abwechslungsreich und für Kiss Verhältnisse sehr soft. Stücke wie "Only You", "World Without Heroes" und "Under The Rose" sind schon sehr beeindruckend. Einzig "I" erinnert an den typischen Kiss Sound.

Ich finde diese KISS Scheibe ungewöhnlich genial. Ich höre mir diese Songs immer wieder gerne an.
*****
...sehr gut...

Das was Metallica fast 20 Jahre später mit S&M machten, waren KISS ihrer Zeit meilenweit voraus!
Es ist ihr einziges Album, daß nicht vergoldet (oder mehr) wurde, völlig verkannt..denn für mich war es DAS Album des Jahres 1981/82..und ist bis heute, im Gesamtkondex, ihre perfekteste Platte, in meinen ewigen Top-10.
Erstmals war ERIC am Drum und letzmals ACE dabei, der nur 2 Songs (Escape und Dark light) beisteuerte - die er per Post (!!!) schickte.
Ich liebte diese Platte vom ersten Moment an, Weihnachten 1981.

Unglaublich, was für ein Blödsinn da wieder folgte.. > reviews

Finde ich zwar interessant, mutig und irgendwie auch gut und durchdacht gemacht. Trifft aber meinen Nerv überhaupt nicht....Im Gegenteil, andere Nerven werden getroffen...das total übertriebene "Under The Rose" gehört mit zum nervigsten, was ich von Kiss je gehört habe. Einzig die Ballade "A World Without Heroes" sowie das Instrumental "Escape From The Island" gefallen mir wirklich.
**
2+, ein grausames Konzeptalbum, bei dem es mal wieder um den Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse geht, von Kiss. Ich weiß nur nicht ob ich "Unmasked" noch schlechter finden soll, oder dieses mir hier vorliegende Werk.
#75 in den USA

"Just A Boy" und natürlich "I" sind genial, "Fanfare" (*g*) und "Odyssey" gehen auch schwer in Ordnung.
*****
Irgendwie versteh ich nicht was so
KISS-untypisch (sogar über weite Strecken) sein soll..

Aber naja..
Angeblich sollen sie sich ja auch für das Album "schämen"..

Wahrscheinlich genauso unwahr, wie genial diese Scheibe ist!

einer meiner 5 vinylplatten, aber den plattenspieler habe ich nicht mehr. egal, was ich in erinnerung habe, bewegt mich eine 6 zu geben. schlussendlich ist ja egal, ob es typisch kiss ist oder nicht. es ist einfach GUT, von mir aus duerfte das auch hoff gesungen haben.
*****
Die Presse spricht von einem Desaster des überambitionierten Konzept Albums.
Dieser Meinung bin ich gar nicht.
Der progressive Charakter des Albums finde ich super.

Das passt offensichtlich nicht in die Geschichte der Good-Time-Rock-Songs von Kiss.
******
In my opinion, this is one of KISS greatest albums despite being a major dissapointment for the band. As Their first five albums were Hard Rock/Heavy Metal, Dynasty Disco-Rock and Unmasked was Pop, this was an attempt at Progressive/Art Rock and they nailed it with bad results. Epic album, all tracks are great!
