The three hundred and fifty-sixth album: Kiss - Destroyer

As Kiss's fame comes as much from its existence as an amazing live act as it does from its album, this is actually the only album on the list from the band. Said to be its most ambitious, its breadth is quite impressive. God of Thunder probably stands as its most conclusive, a massive rock anthem that really hits that dark exuberance, it's followed by Great Expectations, a hard rock twist on a ballad that is still quite produced in places, but is a more accessible, almost poppy track as well.

It feels properly aimed at me, as I enjoy both the standard rock songs and the more sensitive ballads, with the variety pushing beyond the showmanship into something better and deeper. It's worth mentioning Beth here as one of the main examples of this. As an album it's well put together and well worth listening to the full range of.
