  • Gene Simmons' 1978 Kiss solo album turned out to be the most surprising of the bunch. Primarily known as the author of Kiss's heaviest songs, Simmons had always been an avid Beatles fan. His album shows the influence of Fab Four, and also includes songs that feature orchestras and reflect the then-thriving disco scene. The album is also notable because it benefits from the contributions of many '70s rock stars, like Aerosmith's Joe Perry, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielson, Cher, Bob Seger, Donna Summer, Helen Reddy, and the Doobie Brothers' Jeff "Skunk" Baxter.
  • Granted, some of the tracks are reminiscent of Simmons' thunder rock (such as "Radioactive" and "See You in Your Dreams"), but the majority of the tracks are more musically unpredictable. "See You Tonite," "Always Near You/Nowhere to Hide," "Man of 1,000 Faces," and "Mr. Make Believe" recall John, Paul, George, and Ringo, while "Burning Up With Fever," "Living in Sin," and "True Confessions" are flavored by dance floor sounds. The album-closing cover of the Disney classic "When You Wish Upon a Star" is not to be missed.
