How ya doin', Pee-pull!? Today, Iron-Cast goes KISS-Krazy once more as we delve into a time when the make-up came off and the hair spray went on, with KISS' 1983 release, "Lick It Up". But what is this album? Is it a worthy early 80's metal album and sister to "Creatures of the Night", or is it a pretender to the throne of 80's metal and a predecessor of the cock rock/hair metal KISS albums that were to come later in the 80's? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments of episodes twenty-one to thirty.

Once in a while an album is released that starts a revolution; an album whose impact is still felt decades later.

But does "Straight Outta Compton" live up to the hype? Is it a case of a substantial album or is it a case of a couple of hits doing all of the heavy lifting? Tune in as we take a track-by-track look at the album that started a revolution and put Los Angeles on the hip hop map.
