Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With Alive! Kiss created one of the most exciting and essential live albums of all time. Its 1977 sequel, Alive II, failed to measure up for a variety of reasons--including, perversely, the inclusion of an album side of studio material--and it took the band 15 years to return to the well once again. Alive III holds up surprisingly well, though that may be due to reduced expectations for a band that was nearing the end of its "unmasked" period, performing without makeup and without original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. Still, Kiss have always excelled onstage, whether through genuine inspiration or mere professionalism. Alive III rocks the house with a generous 16-song selection of material that cuts the chaff from their weaker mid-period studio albums and doesn't neglect fan favorites such as "Rock and Roll All Nite," "Deuce," "Heaven's on Fire," and "Detroit Rock City." --Daniel Durchholz

3.0 out of 5 stars Kiss - 'Alive III' (Mercury) March 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I give it 3 1/2 stars. A live CD that many of us never thought would see the light of day. 'Alive III' was produced by long-time producer Eddie Kramer. A few old fans here and there might be a bit let down, but for the most part, 'Alive III' is decent. Total of sixteen cuts, with a running time at 67:26 as there's just four early tunes here, "Deuce", "Watchin' You", "Detroit Rock City" and "Rock And Roll All Nite". That's okay. As for myself, I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the later material as well, "Unholy", "Creatures Of The Night", "Lick It Up" and "I Was Made For Loving You" (after all these years, I'm used to it anyway). No, 'Alive III' isn't as great as the first 'Alive' record. But then again, did you really expect it to be?

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Kick Rock And Roll Butt August 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good live Cd from Kiss.At the time it was long overdue for a new alive album.Since this there is an alive 4.
The best alive CD is Alive 1.
But this captures Kiss without their makeup.Bruce Kulick was on lead here and did a mighty fine job.And on the skins was Eric Singer.Its a pity Eric Carr was on none of the alive albums,but did appear on Animalive which was just as good as an alive album.Eric Singer also did very well here.
And Gene and Paul naturally did their stuff.
In all this is quite a good cd,great listening from start to finish.I like the way it ends with Star Spangled Banner.
Cool CD this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing! July 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Kiss fan since I was 4 yrs old. In all that time I've never given up on the band (even during the Unmasked & Crazy Nights eras, I even loved The Elder). To be honest I didn't think it was possible for Kiss to make a bad live CD but I was wrong. Don't get me wrong... the song selection is great, the band is great but Alive III is far to over produced. It just sounds fake, like the band played to an empty hall and dubbed in the audience. It sounds so obvious during Paul's abbreviated between song chatter & as previous reviewers said during certain songs. I am totally shoked that something bearing Eddie Kramer's name should be so poorly produced (Who knows maybe it's the "and Kiss" part of the production team that was the problem). I like this CD but it just doesn't compare with Alive! or Alive II. As a fan all I can do is hope and pray Alive IV doesn't suffer from the same GLARING flaws.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Blessing January 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
So now we come to the final chapter in the ALIVE trilogy.It was inevitable that Paul and Gene would bow to public pressure and put out another live album.They hoped to produce a set that would have rivalled ALIVE 1 & 2; unfortunately,number three did not make the grade.I can't see the sense in repeating songs that had already appeared in previous live incarnations(DEUCE,ROCK N'ROLL ALL NITE,WATCHIN'YOU,DETROIT ROCK CITY).They had the albums from DYNASTY to REVENGE to choose material from.Why no FITS LIKE A GLOVE,TURN ON THE NIGHT,or TEARS ARE FALLING?!Also the Eddie Kramer production on some of the tracks sounds watered down, almost to UNMASKED like proportions.Saying that though,on other tracks the Kulick/Stanley/Simmons/Singer lineup really bared it's fangs and showed how good they really were(CREATURES OF THE NIGHT ,I WAS MADE FOR LOVIN' YOU,LICK IT UP,FOREVER).By all means,buy ALIVE 3;just don't think it will be better than 1&2,and you won't be dissapointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Sound - Poor Packaging and Selection December 3, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The problem with this album is that it tried to cover lots of material on a single disc. By the time this was recorded KISS had enough 80's and 90's material to have a double CD of all the songs that made them popular again in the mid 80's. Its true that the songs here sound good and fresh but a follow up of Alive and Alive II could have been a lot more original with better song selection and far better packaging. If you are looking for a "classic" live album sitck to Alive. Let's just hope they do better on Alive IV.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best of the Alive recordings! March 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The album starts off with one of their best (Creatres Of The Night). If you Plan to buy some of their best songs I recomend this, I feel the songs are better than Smashes, Thrashes, & Hit. This is highly recomended. The group is not the origil four, this album includes Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer, and Bruce Kulick. If you are interested this CD includes a "Kiss" family tree, its very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected! November 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Alive 2 wasnt up to the level of the original Alive!16years after Alive 3 come to stores whats worth the bait?EVERITHING this album is outstanding Alive 3 is basicly a live remake of the 80s kiss albums with a couple of kiss classics.They also included 4 songs from their last studio album`revenge`wich is great.Its not the great Alive but its good its does sound live.it includes songs from almost every 80s album exept a couple like unmasked,the elder and others.It doesnt excludes classics like detroit rock city,deuce,watching you and others but it focuses mainly on the 80s.Eric Singer does a great job at the drums so does Bruce Kulick at the guitar part his `star spangled banner`performance is very impresssive.There is 16 songs live from 1993 ,the booklet included has cool pictures inside.If you just listen to it then its not as good as on the`confidential and exposed`dvd wich includes most of the Alive3 concert,it looks amazing and they are performing at their best.Its a good value this album is outstanding!i love it.Maybe its not from the original lineup but its good anyway.a great effort on this live album.there is a missing song`take it off`that they did not include here.very recomended!
