13. KISS – Music From The Elder (1981) 

A kind way to describe this record is “ambitious.” “Misguided” or “over-blown” are probably more accurate. This prog-rock concept record is not so much a rock album as it is the perfect soundtrack to a game of Dungeons & Dragons. Music From The Elder is a weird one. It also was the first KISS record to fail to reach gold status in sales. Ace Frehley sums this record up best with his opening lyric to the song “A Dark Light”: “Look out, ‘cause there’s something wrong.”
