At $12.00 at Walmart, you can't deny the value of this 2-CD/1-DVD package. I'm a big KISS fan so admittedly, I'm a bit biased but I'm enjoying what I'm hearing so far. Would have preferred the new recordings of old stuff include some more "twists," but overall I think this is worth a listen. Was definitely a good decision to allow Paul Stanley to produce it; good, clean sound.

Not a bad effort at all. Like Doug said, for 12 bucks at Wally World, you can't go wrong if you're a KISS fan. I've been a fan since I was little and have loved both the 70s and the 80s KISS, as well as their newest efforts. I hear elements of both the 70s and 80s stuff here, at least I think so anyway. There is some decent stuff on here. It sounds clean. Only a couple songs on the weak side and they're not even too bad. Definitely some decent stuff on here and a few are really strong. All in all, pretty good and worth a listen. But, hey, even if it was bad, a bad KISS record beats the hell out of a good Pearl Jam or any other alterna-crap record anyday! :-) Good to see some of our groups like KISS, AC/DC, etc... trying to work their way back into the public eye and hopefully it will start to do away with the alternative garbage that is the "mainstream" today. There is still alot of good stuff out there, unfortunately you gotta look harder to find it these days. I wish KISS the best!

This is an unexpected return to the top for the Most legendary band ever !!!85/100 In fact , i was ready for a major disappointment but this album rocks Big time ,they tried to get the OLD feeling and sound and they succeed... It's too early to know if it's a classic or Not...let's talk about that in 10 years... One thing is for sure ;they can add some of those songs to their show ,full of old hit, without losing the dynamics like it was the case with tunes from ,,psycho circus" You want the best you've got the best........

Well, slap me on the ass and call me Sally, but damn if this shocker doesn't hit you in the kisser like a big, fat, five-knuckled rock 'n' roll punch. As others have said, this merges elements of 70s Kiss with the best of the 80s Kiss to create an oldschool, fun-fueled sonic force that ranks right up there with the band's best. I pretty much had written Kiss off like a bad sexual experience and fully expected them to eventually fade into history with little more than a pathetic, gutless whimper, but lo and behold, they came roaring back with a great big hard rockin' boom.

Hmmm, after hearing all the good comments about this album, I was surprised to find it mediocre. Stanleys voice really does struggle with the higher end screams etc, but Gene sounds just as he did years ago, but the material on here just doesnt stand out as being special. Yeah its nice to hear they can still do a classic Kiss sounding album rather than adapt or soften up like fellow 70s rockers Aerosmith, but after the fantastic Psycho Circus (which most people seem to hate for no good reason) which was chock full of hooks and personality, this somewhat bland hookless album was not what I expected. Not a bad album, and good value for money, even if I do already own the bonus disc from its original Jap release, but I was expecting so much more.

kiss's best lp since creatures of the night , one of the best lps by any band in a decade ! yes kiss are back and licking it up , long live rock n roll !!

From: edwithmj Date: March 22, 2010 at 10:14
This is better than I expected. The re-recordings of the Kiss Klassics on disc 2 are unnecessary though. They don't sound as good as the originals. The new material is good stuff although it seems a bit dated. All the tracks are well written and are played excellently so this is a good album but far from their best.

From: pie75 Date: July 27, 2010 at 1:46
i'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this is the best kiss album since revenge (cc you're a dill)and is also better than dynasty,unmasked and the elder it's agreat album the guitars are loud as shit and the singing even on genes part is awsome surorisingly tommy and eric sing well too paul's production is top notch and clear eric always was a great drummer and suits kiss but tommy's playing here is killing me great sound he has i also seen this lineup on the alive 35 tour very tight modern day delilah is great and gene write's his best stuff here in russian roulette hot and cold and i'm an animail since unholy never enough is smokin' and say yeah is great too i can hear some anthems here and the band are happy again and it shows would love to hear some of these songs live kiss are back simple as that

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 27, 2010 at 10:29
How's that going out on a limb, saying it's better than three of the band's worst releases (Unmasked, Elder and Psycho CIrcus)?

From: underworld king Date: March 13, 2014 at 9:26
I really enjoyed the old school KISS sound on this album. They captured that 70's vibe on this album really showcased the musicianship of this incarnation of KISS without losing the gist of what the original band sounded like. If you're a fan of KISS you'll love it, if not then don't bother.
