"Chronicles"(2005). A KISS box set.

One of the ultimate hard rock acts of all time has proven themselves to be,by far,KISS. Gene Simmons,Paul Stanley,Ace Frehley,and Peter Criss have written some of the most important songs in the history of rock and roll--the only problems are all of the KISS compilations that keep getting left behind,the fact that KISS hasn't put out any new,original material since 1998(the "Psycho Circus" album),and also that Ace Frehley and Peter Criss are both gone from KISS again after KISS' long awaited 1996 reunion tour. And now,a KISS box set entitled "Chronicles" has been released. Read on for my review of this:

PROS:

KISS' first three albums are all here:their self-titled debut album(1974),"Hotter Than Hell"(1974),and "Dressed To Kill"(1975),and it is nice to see a KISS box set that isn't a compilation.

This box set has a booklet accompanying it,with the liner notes for the three albums that are in this box set.

You can find this box set in stores.

CONS:

The sound on the discs for the albums here have NOT been digitally remastered,and the sound on these three albums sold seperately when they were re-issued and re-released did have digitally remastered sound on the tracks.

There are no bonus tracks on the albums here.

This is a repackage of KISS' "The Orignals" box set that came out in July 1976. Was this box set really needed,especially with a different cover on the box set and a different title for it,when the albums here were re-issued not too long ago?

OVERALL:

This box set does have some positive points to it,but I recommend you shell out your cash and get the albums that are in this box set seperately.

ok 1st off i was never going to buy this set. but shopping at 3am at wal mart makes you do crazy things. i was looking at music dvds and this cd set was in there thanks to their dedicated employees for noticing the difference between cds and dvds lol. but they had it marked at 14 bucks and i thought it be nice to keep it in my car. so i open this generic case that cost 3 cents to print up and 3 cds and 3 inserts fall out of this cracked plastic cd holder. so now i got 3 left over 97 remastered cds and inserts lying on my floor. this set would have been cool if they used the old kiss originals cover and made the package a little better like a digipack or something and include a nice booklet like the alive box set. but poor planning and packaging make this a worthless addition to someones kiss collection. and like on the alive box set where they crammed alive 1 and 2 on 1 cd each the first album and hotter than hell could have easily mae it on 1 cd. but this is just left over remaster cds that didnt sell slapped in a crappy box.

Four stars for the creative band, KISS, and for these strong, early records. This box is new from Universal and includes the first three CDs, "Kiss," "Hotter Than Hell" and "Dressed To Kill." The actual discs are dated "1997," so they are probably the original remasters, and not new remasters, I am guessing. The box includes the three CD covers of the orignal three CDs, but no additional artwork or liner notes. Although some might prefer the 1980s work and beyond, KISS' strong period will always be the 1970s, and their pre"Alive" recordings are found here.

As a Kiss fan, the 5 stars is for the music, but anyone out there with information on the specifics of this release please chime in. I cannot find any information on these chronicles long boxes. Are they newly remastered, or just repackaged?

Wasn't this originally realeased as a limited edition called "The Originals" in the summer of 1976? Altough this is a great "starter set" for new KISS fans, for me personally, I'm bored with all the retro stuff...3 stars...
