Oh dear, what is this?

When I first heard it I couldnt believe Mr Simmons would lower himself with such derivative trash. Not everything that Simmons touches turns to gold and here is the proof!

Nothing works on this lack lustre attempt at a resurgence. The last solo album when Simmons was with Kiss had some inspirational moments and his heart was well and truly into it. But with this effort years later, the magic has worn off.

We have appalling compositions such as I Dream a Thousand Dreams, Simmons does Frank Sinatra here and it is unlistenable; he is even out of tune. The Prodigy's Firestarter is repetitious and absolute nonsense. Weapons of Mass Destruction is better and perhaps the highlight. Asshole is a silly song with sweetly sung lyrics about being a total asshole. Ok we believe you Simmons. It is just plain silly, childish in fact and really disappointing.

Please make no effort to get this - it is the worst music Simmons has done. Perhaps it is good for an unintentional laugh. well, let's hope Simmons does not make another album like this; I do not think the rock world could take it. So there's a roaot for you Mr Simmons from an old Kiss addict. Flush this down the sewer.
