40 Years Anniversary re-release of the eleventh full-length studio album by legendary American Glam/Hard Rock band.
Band’s first non-makeup album and the first to achieve certification since 1980's "Unmasked". This is partially attributable to the increased publicity the band received after their unmasking. Prior to its 1983 release, the band members appeared on MTV without their trademark makeup. It was the first public appearance without make-up by the band since their very early days, and their first for Mercury Records, where they had been signed following their departure from Casablanca Records.
"Lick It Up" built upon the harder sound Kiss had displayed on 1982's "Creatures Of The Night". 
Vinnie Vincent again proved to be a worthy replacement to original guitarist Ace Frehley. For the first time, Vinnie Vincent appeared on the cover art for the album, whereas Ace Frehley had appeared on the "Creatures Of The Night" cover, despite having already left the band and not being involved in the recording of the album. Vincent was not legally a member of the band. Due partly to disputes over what his role in the band and his pay would be (some reports indicated that he had asked for, and was flatly denied, a percentage of the band's gross profits), Vincent never signed any contract making his employment official. These disputes, along with a growing attitude by him that he was solely responsible for the resurgence of Kiss, would lead to him leaving the band (or being fired, depending on the source) after the European leg of the Lick It Up tour.
"Lick It Up" successfully re-established the band among the Heavy Metal masses worldwide. Kiss also reconnected with their stateside fans. The album's success was spurred by MTV's repeated airing of the imaginative video for the album's strong title track, and songs such as "Exciter", "Not for the Innocent", "A Million to One", and the Rap-Rocker "All Hell's Breaking Loose", confirmed that the band was back on the right track.
"Lick It Up" was certified Platinum on December 19, 1990. It was placed at #10 on Guitar World's Readers Poll of the Top-10 Guitar Albums of 1983. Kerrang! Magazine listed "Lick It Up" #3 on its list of the best Hard Rock albums in 1983.
The album marked a turnaround in the band's flagging fortunes during the previous several years and successfully introduced them to a new generation of fans, as well as marking the beginning of the "unmasked" era that would last for the next decade. "Lick It Up" is undoubtedly Kiss' best non-makeup album!
