SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Originally released in March 1976, Destroyer was the second Kiss album to reach the Top 20 in the U.S. Released on the heels of their breakthrough album, Alive!, Destroyer is their most ambitious studio recording of their 1970's catalogue and features their well-known ballad "Beth".
"Paired for the first time with a forceful producer in Bob Ezrin - who is both a master of studio technology and a classically trained musician - Kiss has come forth with a concept album that explores the psychological ramifications of the members' stage personas via music that is by turns driving and dynamic, chilling and introspective. Moreover, Destroyer is sophisticated in a manner from standard heavy-metal fare: the intricate time signatures of 'Detroit Rock City,' for example, present a challenge to any rock musician. There is no doubt that Destroyer is Kiss's best album yet or that Ezrin has made the difference." - The Rolling Stone Record Guide
"By the time their fifth album was released, KISS was the most popular band in America, with sold-out stadium tours and eventually its own pinball machines, makeup line and a TV movie. Built around the proto power ballad "Beth," this is a ridiculously over-the-top party-rock album that just gets better with age." - www.rollingstone.com
