What even is that song? Rockabilly speed metal? I haven't heard anything else like it.
I think it's a riff on Stone Cold Crazy. But nice characterization anyway.

when i say exactly like creatures i mean like how judas priest did with turbo and ram it down. they were both recorded at the same time. no sound changes etc.
Are you sure about that? I think those albums sound pretty different, sound-wise.

In 1986, Judas Priest intended to release a double album entitled Twin Turbos, of which half would consist of melodic, more commercial hard rock, and the other half would be heavier and less synth-driven. Columbia Records objected to the double album concept, and the project was ultimately split into two separate releases, 1986's Turbo, and 1988's Ram It Down. At least four songs, "Ram it Down", "Hard as Iron", "Love You to Death" and "Monsters of Rock", were written for the Twin Turbos project.

yeah but that would be about the song WRITING then, not necessarily about the recording. or do you know whether they have been recorded during the same sessions? i would doubt that heavily. yes of course, they went for different styles, but to my ears it sounds as if those were different recording sessions as well...

Nothing Kiss like about it... hell Paul sounds like he's trying to do an Elvis impersonation on the crap-track.

Idk how you could even claim it's the "most Kiss-like song" on the The Elder.

The riffing, chorus and sound of "I" is nothing like Kiss. "I" doesn't fit anywhere in the catalog, not even on The Elder which is probably why they buried it at the very end of the album.

At best "I" sounds like a hack band trying to sound like Kiss but failing at it miserably.

No other bands members except PC, plus it mainly used instruments that no one in the band can even play.

Odyssey was clearly written by someone with different musical skill level than Gene and Paul

It’s has much deeper songwriting and sounds Very un-kiss-like

It was written by Tony Powers.
KISS is actually playing a “cover”, because
Powers previously released it.
Paul met him out in the NY club scene. They became friends, Paul liked the song, the rest is KISSTORY!
There was even a video...
Watch...
