Editors’ Notes Maryland hair-metal unit KIX enjoyed great commercial success during their late-'80s heyday—specifically with the churning power ballad "Don't Close Your Eyes”—and their catalog reveals the band's deep, eclectic approach to hard rock. On early records, the group veer between metallic greased lightning ("Kix Are for Kids") and hook-heavy fare like the icy New Wave rocker "Body Talk" and the ecstatic UK synth-pop nod "Loco-Emotion." Vocalist Steve Whiteman's glammy, range-defying yowl set KIX apart, especially on the funky "Cold Shower" and the frantic blues barn-burner "Hot Wire."
