The track listing for Kiss or Kill looks like this:
I Wanna Be Your Man
Baby Baby Baby
Gotta Get Out
Next Best Thing
Tip Of My Tongue
Road To Destruction
From the Ashes Of Sin
Long Way Home
In addition to the fast rockers like “Tip of My Tongue” and “Baby Baby Baby” the album features some slower tunes, such as “Long Way Home,” and “Next Best Thing.” It is on these slower songs that Michael Grant’s voice really shines. When I spoke with Grant on the phone a few days ago (that interview is forthcoming to Bring Back Glam!) he told me he is principal songwriter for the band. I’ll go ahead and assume Grant had his heart broken a few times in the not so distant past. “Next Best Thing” is probably the best song you’ve never heard; an eloquent rock ballad and appropriate for pop radio, too.
A few months ago, I posted the video for “Baby Baby Baby.” A lot of you were excited then, and you should still be excited now. If life was fair, EndeverafteR would be more famous than Nickelback. We all know the world isn’t fair, but EndeverafteR sure have the chops and songs like “All Night” and “Slave” are proof.
My favorite song on Kiss or Kill is "Poison." It’s a little heavier than the other tunes, and features a faster tempo and some nice drum parts and intricate guitar work. Since I love fast guitars, it’s not surprising this is my choice cut. Use some of your holiday money and buy Kiss or Kill. You know you want to.
Oh yes: EndeverafteR is now on board for the Motley Cruise. I’ll be sure to post a concert review from one of the performances!
