    Really awful. I love KISS, but this is just plain terrible, sorry to say. When did they forget how to write songs? No melodies, just headache-inducing noise. They should take a listen to their old stuff, try to find some fresh inspiration.

    After their previous Sonic Boom, another good album by KISS. It's quite similar to the last one, perhaps more powerful. However the songs aren't great, just good. Hell Or Hallelujah and Freak are the best tracks, then there are two or three interesting songs (Back To The Stone Age, All For The Love Of Rock 'n' Roll, Right Here Right Now).

    O melhor disco de rock de 2012, com riffs matadores, ótimos refrões e solos impecáveis de Tommy Thayer, que deixa a sombra de Ace Frehley e se mostra um grande guitarrista. Monster simplesmente consegue mostrar que o Kiss ainda tem Rock N' Roll de sobra para oferecer.

    An amazing album from start to finish. A mix of Rock N Roll Over and Revenge. My only concern is Paul Stanley's voice. He struggles to reach the high notes on some of the songs, but there again, he is 60 years old. Best songs on the album:
    Hell or Hallejeah
    Freak
    Long Way Down
    Last Chance

    It's not quite Destroyer good, but then again, it's not quite Animalize bad either. [13 Oct 2012, p.53]

    Although the album barely brings its head above the water-line marked "passable", it's still too slick, too unified and too perfectly structured to convince you that apart from the vocals of Stanley and Simmons, the rest of the album is nothing more than a hodge-podge of contributions from various pony-tailed musos from somewhere sunny.
