As above, originally bought my copy + MFTE at a record sale whilst on a camping weekend. Fun fact: my mate's girlfriend at the time looked EXACTLY like one of the girls in the video, the blond one :lol: . Ok, I know, one of the girls in close-up pushing one of the hospital beds, that one....
Edit; the two girls woken up by Kiss' 'Unholy' racket at 2:16, the one on the right.

Always loved it. It actually has a really strong chorus, but unfinished don’t think a lot of fans can see past the silly Uh! part of the song. Had it been called Rock All Night I think more fans would like it.

The fact of the matter is UH! All Night sounds like 70's KISS in the 80's. The riffs and melodies are merely an updating of RARO type stuff.

And Bruce's solo is fantastic. Somewhere between Eddie and Ace.

Yeah, it's stoopid, it's goofy, but it's fun.

Always loved it. Musically some of the stuff on Asylum (like this one and "Secretly Cruel") is about as close as KISS ever got back to their classic mid '70s style (without actually attempting to copy their younger selves at least, which we got later on). It seems to me a lot of fans are distracted by the visuals to an extent where they don't seem to hear that.

Asylum has its moments. Some good, some not so good. This song is meh.. Its of its time.
Bruce's solo is damn good though.. I haven't watched this clip since my old Exposed VHS, so has to be 25 years?! :lol:

I'm in the minority with you then. Asylum is a top 3 album for me. All killer, no filler. Just my opinion, of course.

Great song! What a solo from Bruce.

Now, I'm not claiming - and have never claimed - that the song titles on the back of Love Gun resemble a phallus, but someone tell me the overhead stage lighting on this video ISN'T a huge cock and balls! 😂

There might be a good song here - but the production and guitar sound absolutely kills it for me. Just dreadful production and those guitars Bruce used were the pits.

Fun tune, if a bit reminiscent of Misty Mountain Hop.

I actually just finished a review of Uh! All Night for my site, The KISS Project. Shameless plug.

It's a harmless bit of fun - it's not a classic, but I like it. There was that period when a lot of rock bands were doing risque/double-entendre lyrics and those date it quite firmly to the mid-late 80s I have to say!

Interesting. ASYLUM does have a bit of brickwalling (before that even existed) about it, but the production doesn’t bother me anywhere near albums like KISS, HOTTER THAN HELL, CRAZY NIGHTS, HITS or MONSTER. I’ve never thought it was all that bad.

I dug the song at the time, but it doesn't hold up even as a cheesy KISS song.

The video certainly does the song no favors. The production on Asylum and Bruce's guitar tone sucks - he never sounded good until Revenge in terms of guitars and tone.

I actually like all 3 of these songs, although I can see why not every Robert Plant fan would like KK. Very synth/pop vibe. A pre-cursor to his next album NOW AND ZEN. Sounds like Phil Collins meets Peter Gabriel, ironic since they were in Genesis together and Phil also played drums on a couple of Plant’s records.

I think the whole Shaken 'n' Stirred album was maybe a bridge too far for some Plant fans...because it's so oblique and off-kilter it certainly took me a while to get into it, but now I think of it as an underrated gem.

I created a thread about this song a while back... I'm of the opinion if the melody of the verses was a bit more catchy instead of the "Ehhhhvery wheeeere a-roooound the world" delivery....and the lyrics weren't so cringy, this tune could have, and quite possibly would have been every bit the 80s classic as Lick It Up and Heaven's On Fire. Musically, it's great. The vocal melody of the verses and lyrics are what let it down IMO.

That said, I still dig it...but it could have been so much more.

I know you love the music, but you also liked their Golden Girls look?

Gene was right with the notion in the 70's that if they went for the New York Dolls/glam look, they would look like football players with a tutu on. Welcome to the Asylum look.
