Kiss - Lick It Up album


Size MP3 album: 1885 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1347 mb.

Lick It Up is the 11th studio album by American rock band Kiss. On the day of its 1983 release, the band members appeared on MTV without their trademark make-up. It was the first public appearance without make-up by the band since their very early days, and their first for Mercury Records, where they had been signed following their departure from Casablanca Records.

Lick It Up built upon the harder sound Kiss had displayed on 1982's Creatures of the Night. But while Creatures of the Night was a commercial disappointment for Kiss, Lick It Up sold much better. It was certified gold on December 22, 1983, the first Kiss album to achieve certification since 1980's Unmasked. This is at least partially attributable to the increased publicity the band received after their unmasking . " Lick It Up " and "All Hell's Breakin' Loose" were released as the only two singles from the album.

Don't want to wait until you know me better Let's just be glad for the time together Life's such a treat and it's time you taste it There isn't a reason on earth to waste it It isn't a crime to be good to yourself
