In Their Own WordsEdit

Paul Stanley - "Id give dressed to kill three and a half stars. We were so worried with Dressed to Kill that is was so short. We really felt that here are the songs, and thats enough".

Gene Simmons - "Dressed to Kill is okay, but I dont think the record quite has the songs the first two records had. Two and a half stars".

Peter Criss - "id give that one two stars. Maybe Id actually give it three stars, because the band worked hard.

Ace Frehley - "I recently listened to that album again. I hadnt listened to it in a long time, and I listened to the cd. There was alot of energy on that record. I was real happy with alot of the solos I did. It shows growth from the first record [Laughs]. Probably a four".
