Editorial Reviews

What distinguishes Kiss Kiss, a 5 piece orchestral rock ensemble, from its contemporaries is a unique synthesis of influences, resulting in moody music that hangs and dissolves on shrewd, artful sonwriting. Blending analog synths, violin, distorted guitar and ambient sounds with arrangements and male/female vocals, it's a though Kiss Kiss channeled the fragments of its musical predecessors, and reassembled them. Known for it's unpredictable, high-energy live performances, Kiss Kiss routinely leads audiences into manic, affected states of high emotion.

Format: Audio CD
because surely, they can't make better music than this, but that's exactly what I thought when I heard their Kiss Kiss EP. Reality Vs. The Optimist, released only on February 8th is already probably going to be the best album of 2007. From start to finish, there is absolutely no time wasted, every song is well developed, catchy, and actually very technical. No time being wasted, meaning you will get a 32 minute album, but don't be so hasty to say that this is a bad thing, because everything fits so well on this album, that really, I don't know how they could have made it any longer. Extremely enjoyable, how music should be. Odd time signautes, tempo changes, the works to make a music maniac amazed. Also the average listener with extremely catchy tunes. Anyone that wants good music all around, I seriously recommend you get this album, even if this means you don't listen to any samples, it's impossible not to like this.

In an age where most albums just lay on your itunes going uheard and are usually lackluster. Kiss Kiss delivers something new, fresh and definitely a gem of a record. You cannot just listen to the record once, it is impossible. After hearing this bands myspace almost two years ago, i booked them for a show. I have seen them four other times and never leave dissapointed. A part of me wants to keep this band as the band i know no one knows about, but i cant. BUY THIS ALBUM, it is like nothing you have ever heard.
standout tracks* machines, vagabond, stay the day, satellite.
Finally, if you do decide to purchase this cd, go over to the eyeball records website and see what other amazing artists they have on their roster.

I usually dont do reviews but i could not hold out for this album or this band.

This is one of the most amazing albums I have ever listened to. It changes speeds often, and every switch works well. The vocalist is able to switch between screaming and singing so smoothly that you can't even notice the switches unless you pay very close attention. Though the violin stands out more than any of the other instruments because of how uncommon it is for this type of band, all of the instrumentals are beautiful and distinct. I especially enjoyed the way that they give the bass more power than most bands do and made it really suit their distinct style. So far, this is my favorite Kiss Kiss release.
