KISS: The Top 13 albums of the Makeup Years
Rock and Roll Over falls into the era of “classic KISS.” It was an attempt to reach out to the fans of its first three more barebones rock albums following the lavish production that was Destroyer and the success of the ballad “Beth.” Rock and Roll Over has some big KISS songs like “I Want You,” “Calling Dr. Love” and “Hard Luck Woman” but it is an inconsistent record that comes off as a little undercooked, especially in the lyrics department. Lyrically, the band has never been particularly profound, but “Baby Driver” and “Take Me” are exceptionally sophomoric and uncreative. For example: “Put your hand into my pocket grab onto my rocket . . .” You see? – A little too Spinal Tap.
