I COULD HAVE PICKED BETTER SONGS TO GO ON THIS ONE.WHERES BLACK DIAMOND, I WANT YOU, AND PLEASE LEAVE TWO TIMER OFF THAT ONE REALLY SUX. WHY DOES ROCK AND ROLL ALLNIGHT HAVE TO BE ON EVERY KISS COMPILLATON ALBUM. THEY ARE BETTER THAN THAT. THAT SONG IS SO PLAYED OUT ITS NOT FUNNY. DETROIT ROCK CITY SMOKES THAT .

From: Reno Date: August 15, 2001 at 13:45
How damn many Best Of cd's can a band do? It's just an excuse for not "putting out another studio album, and living in the Past" Something new please!!!

From: koogles Date: January 3, 2002 at 8:29
Another Kiss compilation and more money for the $immons bank account. A band that really doesn't know when to stop.

From: TIM Date: September 16, 2002 at 23:40
I agree with all these guys. The only standout is "Rock And Roll All Nite" which I think is the best version they have done.

ANOTHER COMPILATION......GENE YOU BRING ME DOWN

From: Tony Date: June 1, 2003 at 6:02
You gotta remember the TIME this was released. This came out at the beginning of the reunion tour when there was a ton of hype and was probably released as more of a "refresher" course than a brand new greatest hits album. If you're not the hugest Kiss fan but want to hear what the hype over the live show is all about this is a good cd to get. For the die-hards it's worth it for the "new" live tracks and the Kiss interview. I'll cut them some slack on this release considering the year.

A quick guide to making money in the Rock 'n' Roll world: Part 1) Have a gimmick, like wearing crazy make-up on your face and leather costumes on your butts. Maybe breathe a little fire now and then. Part 2) Write songs that are catchy and powerful. Keep in mind that a good rock tune is like a car wreck and as such should be LOUD. Part 3) Kick out the dopers and still keep the band together 30 years. Part 4) Reunite with said dopers. Part 5) Re-release, Re-release, Re-release. Part 6) Cash in.

And P.S. KISS FAN, I happen to like Two Timer. At least it's not on any other CD besides Dressed to Kill. (I mean, how many versions of Beth do we need?!)

From: Adam Blackheart Date: August 29, 2004 at 10:04
I don't understand this compilation

From: pt88 Date: January 20, 2005 at 14:28
I am a little baffled by this compilation but when I got it I really got a kick out of the interview. They were kinda making fun of Gene and rightfully so. It's fun to hear them laughing. I really enjoyed room service but really how many times does one listen to this. I probably did a half dozen times before I grew tired.

From: Big Mike Date: February 17, 2005 at 12:28
This album was about cashing in on the reunion, psycho circus was a long way off. The Interview is a bit of a wank. It wasn't really about the quality of songs but rather about adding a few unreleased live tracks to try and make it look different. Notice they are the first songs on the album, eg the first ones you see. Cool cover but that was the best part of this release apart from the bright orange jewel case.....clever one gene.

From: evileric71 Date: January 6, 2007 at 22:43
Hey, once again, the new live tracks are complete studio recordings with fake noise. Anybody that has heard the REAL live version of Take Me will know right away that this version as well as Two Timer has Eric on the drums and Bruce on guitar. Nice try though and anybody who believes different may as well have their heads up Paul's and Gene's asses.

totaly agree with tony this wasn't a money making scheme it was a refresher because of the reunion if anything it was well timmed i listened to it a lot when it came out as i was excited to see legend that is the original band in make up and i got a kick out of the interview can't say i remember the last time i pulled it out and listened to it but it was worth it at the time not a bad collection but certainly not great
