From: Rene Date: August 5, 2004 at 13:50
No, i realy dont like Symphonie orchestra with Hard rock or Metal. This is just shit, same with the METALLICA or SCORPIONS albums with orchestra. Also RAGE did some shit with an orchestra and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN. No, Orchestra and hard rock is not my deal. Its okay some Classic influences like many of the AXEL RUDI PELL, RAINBOW, YNGWIE...songs but not with all the orchestra fucking old classics up. FUCK SYMPHONIE ORCHESTRA WITH METAL, FUCK OFF.

From: Zè Rocks Date: August 6, 2004 at 13:04
Indeed I think Kiss released a great cd with a great interaction between classical orchestra and their hard rock songs.

From: Alejandro Date: August 6, 2004 at 13:41
Le hacìa falta este disco a la banda?.Nada que vaya a cambiar radicalmente a Kiss,aunque no deja de ser original, sobre todo ese detalle de la sinfònica maquillada,pero a nivel musical.. LAs versiones por si mismos,no cambian de lo escuchado en cualquier pirata,salvo por Shandi,ò Goin`Blind,casi rarezas,pero no agrega nada particular.Y lo sinfònico,es,innegable que està todo muy cuidado,muy arreglado,pero algo falta ese calor que en vivo los hizo ùnicos. 6/10.

From: Tony Date: August 7, 2004 at 18:40
The first and second parts are awesome!! They just sound "meaner" with Tommy and it's awesome to hear songs like "Shandi" and "Great Expectations" live. The "rock" songs with the orchestra is pretty weak though. You can hardly hear them and only "God Of Thunder" is really enhanced by having a orchestra behind it. Get the DVD if you want to check this out. The bombast and spectacle really comes through on the DVD but doesn't quite shine through on disc.

From: Great Dane Date: August 8, 2004 at 23:38
Classical sound mixed with rock..........Uhh What a load of crap. NOPE KISS stick to what youre best at.....Making dolls, stickers, chewing gum or whatever.!!!! I agree with Tony, the DVD s fun watching, but damn, these guys are DEAD musically.

From: Michael Date: August 10, 2004 at 11:05
I was totally blown away with "Great Expectations"...

From: KIZZ Date: August 16, 2004 at 17:14

From: Christine Date: August 19, 2004 at 2:33
The orchestra just doesn't work with anything other than "Beth," "Great Expectations" and "God Of Thunder." G'nR was just about the only band that could pull this off, and at least they were smart enough to limit it to just a few songs.

From: Adam Blackheart Date: August 29, 2004 at 9:42
For me Kiss Symphony is right beside Deep Purple "Concerto for Group And Orchestra". Good work guys

From: Wotty Date: August 29, 2004 at 9:53
Great live cd.I was not sure at first,but after repeated plays it lodges itself in the brain.RECOMMENDED....

From: pt88 Date: January 20, 2005 at 14:46
Nevr heard anything or seen anything from it. I heard alot of positives about it. Otherwise don't care.

From: Dave Date: January 21, 2005 at 5:09
pt88 , if you have not seen the DVD or heard the CD and you "Otherwise don't care" , why the f**k have you posted this worthless piece of crap ?

From: Big Mike Date: February 13, 2005 at 11:57
More rehashed material.........KISS for poofters

From: 80s hero Date: May 17, 2006 at 9:33
mmmmm..... Que flojo disco de KISS. La marioneta que está en la batería quién es? La Rana René? La chanchita Piggy? No! Es Peter Criss! Porque no lo grabaron en un teatro como SCORPIONS que iba a ser mucho mejor, o quizás le iba a llegar a los talones al de SCORPIONS... De lo peor visto con orquestas en mucho tiempo...

From: evileric71 Date: December 21, 2006 at 10:38
A lot of you here don't like this album and while I can understand why, I will say it DOES have a few high points. Beth was particularly touching. Great Expectations was a nice surprise and King Of The Nightime World was awesome. Other than that, you are right, this album wasn't really worthy of anything. However, I HAVE to disagree with whoever said the Scorpions CD with the orchestra was not good. It was DIFFERENT, but it kicked major ass.

From: XabDeth Date: January 2, 2007 at 15:11
80s Hero, Un disco flojo? eres imbecil? como vas a insultar a perter, maldito infeliz. y es el mejor disco hecho en osquestas, el de mierdallica apesta, y es mejor que el de scorpions, a ver si aprendes de muscai, pendejo. Recomendado 10/10.
