Every KISS fan will will love that track.
I mean, I like the cd, but there really isn't one song that grabs you and screams KISS.
Peter Criss did a great job as did Paul and Gene.

When KISS put their war-paint back on and welcomed Ace Frehley and Peter Criss home from years as solo artists I originally thought, 'they are going to do a reunion tour, a fourth live album, and then a farewell tour.' But when Psycho Circus came out I was amazed that a group that had been together for almost thirty years could write such dynamic, powerful, and just plain fun songs! The opening (title) track, sung and co-written by Paul Stanley, nicely surmises the idea of the album, bizarre and sometimes dark, but always enjoyable 'You're in the Psycho Circus -and I say welcome to the show!' Then Gene Simmons comes screeching to the microphone on "Within." That, and Paul Stanley's "Dreamin'" have a much heavier and darker feel to them; the angry introspection so common on the "Revenge," or "Carnival of Souls" albums is back in full force, blending nicely with such anthems as "I Pledge Allegiance to the State of Rock and Roll." KISS proves here that they can still rock with a vengeance. On what is arguably the best song on the album "Raise your Glasses," I felt myself inspired from the energetic guitar solo nicely complimented by motivational lyrics and the rolling thunder of Peter Criss' drum intro. "You Wanted the Best," is an interesting way of showcasing the vocal talents of all four band members, each singing the lead on different parts of the song. Ace Frehley only contributed to the writing of one song on the album, "Into the Void," but it is classic space-man. He does a good job on vocals but really shines with the guitar solo, it is both technically complex and enjoyable to listen to.Read more ›

PSYCHO CIRCUS has been much maligned by both crtics and fans. It has also been praised by both; believe it or not both ROLLING STONE and ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY gave the album good reviews (I guess hell must really have frozen over!). The truth is that this is a solid Hard Rock album with a couple of great songs. Album opener "Psycho Circus" easily qualifies as a KISS classic. Both catchy and powerful, it is the perfect updating of their 70's style. "Within" is a dark, dynamic song from GENE who attempts to put a 90's spin on "God Of Thunder," with fairly successful results. "I Pledge Allegiance..." is one of those "good, but not as good as it should have been" songs. You hear some good ideas, and it is fairly catchy, but Paul's choice of working with co-writer Holly Knight sabotages any chance the song had of being a classic. Ace Frehley makes his one songwriting contribution with "Into The Void," easily one of the best songs he has co-written in 20 years, and one of the 3 new KISS classics on the album. "We Are One," is a good pop tune, with a very nice sentiment, but should not have been included on an album already overloaded with "pop" songs. "You Wanted The Best," on the other hand, is the third of the new KISS classics on the album. With a grinding riff over a "Ballroom Blitz," or "Kickstart My Heart" type drum part, it sounds the most like KISS from the 70's out of all the songs on PSYCHO CIRCUS. Paul Stanley makes one of his best "Pop-Metal" contributions ever with "Raise Your Glasses," one of the most infectiously catchy songs of the last 10 years, not just from KISS, but from anyone.Read more ›

There are a lot of people who dislike Psycho Circus. Fine. I do get the dissent.

I get that it's not a "real" Kiss reunion through-and-through. It simply isn't...and it could and should have been more of one. No excuses. It was sold as something it merely pretends to be (for the most part) and so there's a definite despicable quality to it knowing that, if you never ever hear a single note.

However, and this really is a BIG however, how often do you remember an album for the integrity of it versus the quality? Truth be told I'm not looking forward to GNR's Chinese Democracy because I'm bitter it's just Axl Rose and a bunch of "other guys." But in the end it'll come down to one thing: how good is the music? Because the reunion doesn't mean anything if the songs suck. That's the big picture truth.

At the end of the day, I like the songs on Psycho Circus for a number of reasons I'll get into below. No, I don't buy that Peter "couldn't" have played on Within...or Ace couldn't have laid down a solo for Raise Your Glasses. That's lazy Gene and Paul simply side-stepping a problem by conveniently working around it. I think that's lame. But in the end, I'm left feeling good about the music and in the grand scheme of things, what lasts? Does anyone really care still that Ace didn't do the solo on Sweet Pain off Destroyer? Maybe Ace does. You either like the song or you don't. Or that Eric Carr played bass on I Still Love You instead of Gene? Does it really matter if the song is good? I don't care who played on Read My Body, it's a crappy song. Jesus could've done the lead work and I wouldn't care.

What I love about this record is how it works thematically. It really is Destroyer Part 2 in design, even though the execution is modern.
