Don't know about it being "brilliant" as far as hump-me songs go, but when Stanley's feeling randy ... he lets the world know it, in no uncertain terms. By setting it to music ...

A great track… Should’ve been included on every release… Not just import & special additions… Could’ve been a good rock single

I thought Last Chance WAS on every release, with Right Here Right Now being the bonus? I may be wrong....

Gene's bass on the last two albums has a nasty tone (in a good way).

And yeah, this is a mean Paul tune and I dig it.

Ooops I was thinking the wrong song, I guess,
because I do like them both.
Sorry to confuse things.

If you can look past the appalling mastering it's a good tune...some great bass playing from the Demon.

Great song. Like alot of Monster songs if they were magically dropped into older releases the songs would really shine for what they are.

The mastering makes the listening experience absolutely abysmal.

The song is a solid tune, as mentioned. Just wish that this album didn’t get squashed so hard during mastering.

I like most of the album but it is a terrible listening experience, By far the worst sounding album in the catalogue.

Haha! Definitely very lucky... Last Chance is one hell of a trainwreck.

Gene's bass sound is quite alright but that alone can't save the track at all. No chance.

Unfortunately you cannot undo what has been done there. Having an unmastered mix would be necessary to make this happen. And that of course is dependent on having a solid mix with good levels.

I would love to give this album another chance with a better mix but as it currently sounds, I just find it too irritating to listen to and I HATE albums that I can't crank loud.

Ok, I found this abomination on YouTube and just gave it a listen for the first time. This may be the worst KISS song ever. The production, the lead vocal, the background vocals, the shitty guitar solo, the song itself are all horrible. Absolutely horrible. What a complete waste of 3 minutes of my life

Great song on a great album: in my opinion, with a REAL producer, it could have been in Kiss top 3.

The song is solid as a brick. These lyrics can be sexual or really about anything but they aren't blatantly sexual like Take Me Down Below. So yeah, if you're in your 60s & you're going to write a sex song & you don't want it to be completely lame, this is how it's done. Plus the riff & the bass lines are killer. It's a really good late era Paul tune. It's just too bad the sound on Monster is so god awful

Never thought of it as sexual lyrics. More like a message to former members. Last chance of getting it right. But never dug deeper than that line tbh.

What's with the "ah ahah". Sounds like Thunderstruck. haha

The song is pretty good, but the production is too metal sounding. Where's the swagger?

This song never gets a fair listen from me, as my ears are fatigued by the time I get there. It's an ok song. I'll hace to check it out again.

I tend to listen to albums so this being at the end, I'm done by the time I get to it.

"Last Chance" and "Long way down" are the two greatest songs off Monster. Two great songs off of an otherwise pretty bad album.
