Album Cover of The Month

I first saw Kiss "Destroyer" in a Montgomery Ward when i was but a wee-lad. Immediately i asked my mom to buy it. "No... when you are old enough to have you're own money, then you can buy it." was her response. Deeply saddened (as young kids are when they cannot have what they want and don't understand why) I would then become completely obsessed with the face-painted figures... The funny thing is the first album i bought by Kiss was "Rock and roll Over" not "Destroyer."
