Hot in the Shade is the fifteenth studio album by KISS. Released October 17, 1989, it is the first KISS studio album since 1981's Music from "The Elder" to feature three members singing lead vocals on the album. It also marked the last KISS album with drummer Eric Carr before his death in 1991.
A great collection of killer melodic hard rock with a sound that is tight, crisp and could have been huge if debuting only a few years earlier. Sic Vikki was a band out of Philly and with Steve Plunkett (Autograph) having a hand in the production & songwriting, you can be rest assured that this album is not just another wanna-be with fillers. Great vocals from Rich Cox, nice harmonizing from the band, killer hooks throughout and written with lyrics that put some other "big-boys" to shame. A perfect CD that can just be put into the player and left alone, the production on this thing is tight. Highly recommended! (Winger/Lita Ford/Danger Danger).
