Asylum, an album so dreadful, so unremittingly cheesy it's a surprise that it only has one song entitled Uh! All Night.

Re: Which of these is the worst song on Asylum?

Kind of an odd poll. Only three songs that the OP picked, so it's pretty skewed, and how Uh! All Night has less votes than Any Way You Slice It is beyond me. I voted for Uh! All Night because I like the album otherwise, but this song is like going on a great run [songs 1-9] and then falling flat on your ass after slipping on a banana peel.

My opinion... There's only one truly good song on Asylum.

Tears.

Are.

Falling.

Yep, and Love's A Deadly Weapon ain't much better. Besides those two, Asylum is in my top five KISS albums.



This right here. Those are the two low points for this great album.


I can not believe Anyway You Slice It is leading. I love that f*****g song. . . cheesy lyrics and all.

Oh snap, I completely forgot about "Radar for Love"... mainly cuz I know it as "Black Dog, Pt. 2". :roll:

Right on, Chester! :salut:

I agree with Chester as well.

I'm also immensely fond of Animalize and if it weren't for the fact both albums are plagued by that annoying plastic-like sheen production - unlike Lick It Up or CotN - it would be one of my favorite albums by the band.

On another, I'm Alive is underrated as hell.

If that song doesn't make you headbang, then you're dead from the waist up.

8) :lol:



I really dig 'Animalize', too. The production/mastering doesn't bother me nearly as much as it does with CotN. The Animalize-Asylum-Crazy Nights back-to-back threesome is probably my favorite of KISS' entire catalog. Strange, I know...

None! It's a near perfect album and top 5 best KISS disc.

I concur with Curveboy. One of my favorite KISS albums.

Re: Which of these is the worst song on Asylum?

It's not aged well though it was probably my favourite KISS album around that era. The only song I never liked was Tears Are Falling (though Bruce's solo is great).

Trial By Fire is kinda so so.

I concur. Those are the two weakest tunes on the album. "Uh! All Night" being the 3rd weakest, IMO.

Re: Which of these is the worst song on Asylum?

I dig all three. They're some of the standouts on that album, for me. I'd totally go with "Love's A Deadly Weapon". It's a shame they didn't do the version Paul wrote and sang a few year earlier.
