9. KISS – Creatures of the Night (1982) 

After the failure of Music From The Elder and dancing with disco sounds on Dynasty, KISS decided it needed to deliver in the rock department. Of the records made during the band’s makeup era, Creatures of the Night is the heaviest one. If you are a fan of ’80s rock then this one is for you. Ace Frehley appears on the album’s cover, but actually isn’t on the record. Vinnie Vincent, his replacement, shreds some slick solos. The problem with this record is that the band is trying so hard to gain macho credibility that it makes Creatures of the Night not as much fun as the traditional KISS record.
