Jake is back this time with fellow Geek Out co-host Chris, in his Kiss My Podcast debut, to discuss the 1983 Kiss album Lick It Up! A personal favorite of Chris', the album was an effort by Kiss to reinvent themselves and bring the focus back to their music rather than their personalities by stripping off the makeup that had made them so visually iconic in favor of putting out a solid rock album. But how does the album itself hold up? Listen as the duo go track-by-track on the album that defined Kiss for the 1980s!
