As much as I really like Peter Criss, the Eric Carr vocal version of Beth on this CD is just great. He was a great dummer and could sing really well too and he's missed in the rock world.

From: James Date: May 19, 2001 at 9:17
Eric Carr was AWESOME! He made Kiss a much better band.

From: RockDude Date: May 31, 2001 at 14:11
The version of Kiss with Simmons, Stanley, Kulick and Carr was great. They had some great material and should not be underrated or overlooked for the "classic" Kiss lineup with featuring Ace and Peter. Carr was a top notch drummer and it's a shame he died so young. Overall a great CD, featuring material from the 70's and 80's.

From: Curious B Date: February 1, 2002 at 6:57
No one can argue the fact that Eric Carr was a great drummer. It was a sad day when he left us. In person, you would never know that he played in the most well known rock band in the world. Nice guy!! This album is chock full of their hits sprinkled with two new songs and a remake of Beth. Good for the collection.

From: RichieRocker Date: September 16, 2002 at 21:56
This album is worth getting just for the songs "Lets put the X in sex'' and for "Rock HArd". Not a bad compilation definatly worth checking out.

From: robert Date: October 21, 2002 at 18:47
vaya coleccion de temazos, q tios mas genuinos tambien, sexo y cachondeo del bueno, al mas puro estilo de sus paisanos van halen y aerosmith. estos 2 eran los reyes absolutos... aki hay un ejemplo de porque.

From: John Date: October 20, 2003 at 14:36
The chicks in the 'Let's Put The X In Sex' video needed to eat a cheeseburger. Not a bad compilation, but Kiss has so many great songs you really need to have every record. 8.5/10 on the song quality.

From: Apoc_DOP Date: January 2, 2004 at 20:15
Another great compilation, with a twist.. The first time I heard Beth with Eric, I thought "what sacrilege!" Then I realized that he had been in Kiss longer than Peter and was definitely a better musician.. It still felt wrong, but I began to like it. Peter's version is best though. Rock Hard and X in Sex are great Paul rockers and make us wonder....Where is Gene? Where is "the band" writing songs and tearing it up? Which explains another Greatest Hits + record featuring Paul Stanley.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:46
Pretty good compilation, as I was never a big fan of their studio albums. The new songs, despite being very cheesy, are some very catchy pop metal tracks in the mold of "Crazy Nights". 9/10

From: pt88 Date: January 20, 2005 at 13:46
Honestly I just never flew right with the new remixes of the songs. A couple were better then others but for me very little is redeeming here. Eric Carr did a incredible job but I was always leary of him singing Beth. Later I found out he didn't seem sure about doing it because he didn't want to hurt Pete's feelings. What a great guy. We love ya Eric.

From: Big Mike Date: February 17, 2005 at 12:48
The new songs were solid but needed a heard edge. The mix is a bit gay

From: kai Date: August 24, 2008 at 22:10
If your´re first getting into KISS or you´re a greatest hits buyer, this is the most comprehensive compilation available (please forget the "Greatest KISS" and "The Best Of KISS"), besides the box set. Although remixed (and some re-recorded), the songs here span almost all the career of the band up to "Crazy Nights" with two new tracks.

From: pie75 Date: July 26, 2010 at 2:18
a good compilation of 70's and 80's kiss the two new songs are silly and fun even though paul is embaressed about them today i don't mind them
