Editorial Reviews

Includes 2nd CD of 15 Kiss Klassics plus a DVD Live in Buenos Aires. After a 9-year wait, Rock superstars KISS release a brand new studio in 'Sonic Boom'. Featuring 11 brand new KISS anthems, Sonic Boom is an emphatic statement from one of rock's most iconic bands. Says guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley: "The purpose of this album isn't to let people know that we're still around - it's to let people know we can still knock out anybody who's out there!"

I picked up this album, mostly to keep my collection going. I have all of the other ones. But my hopes weren't that high after "Psycho Circus" which was dreadful.
On "Sonic Boom" KISS do as they have done much of their career, just when you think they're done after a bad album or two, they produce a great album again.

I think part of the genius of this album is that they did away with all of the outside songwriters, and went back to Paul, and Gene as the primary songwriters with current members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer also co-writing some. This has the album sounding much more like 'Classic' KISS - the 'Dressed To Kill' through 'Love Gun' period.

One of the earlier reviewers compared this album to what AC/DC does, basically put out records that sound exactly like what you would expect AC/DC to sound like, but still doing a very good job of it. That's kind of what KISS has done here. No significant innovations or surprises. Just great KISS music, like you would expect out of KISS.

Some of my favorites are: Modern Day Delilah, Never Enough, Yes I Know (Nobody's Perfect), All For The Glory, and When Lightning Strikes.

Hopefully, they'll put out another album, just as good, in four of five years, maybe?

If you liked KISS, circa 1975-1978, go out and get this one.

I was a little bit skeptical going into this album, the band had talked about going back to their 1970s style, they had talked about producing it to sound like a classic record, they had talked about using old guitars and amps. Still, in all honesty, I didn't think they'd be able to recapture the feel of their 70s output, or if they did, it would be a sad nostalgia fest that wouldn't be good, despite being the style that I wanted.

Luckily, Sonic Boom is a great album. The band have managed to do the impossible and create an album in 2009 that is both fresh, relevant and also containing a classic 70s feel. The thing is, despite the style and the production, the songs are just plain good again, and that is what makes the difference. It could've sounded like the glory days and still been a collection of poor songs, but it good in and of itself.

Its been two years that I've lived with this, and still I keep coming back so this isn't hype, not release day excitement. Sonic Boom is just a great album, with enduring quality. Full of good songs like the explosive single 'Modern Day Delilah,' the Thayer featuring 'When Lightning Strikes,' and the furiously catchy 'All For The Glory.'

Like all the best Kiss albums, the album mixes a good ratio of Stanely to Simmons vocals, and Thayer even gets about as much of a slot as Ace would've back in the day. This, mixed with the fact that there are no guest writers, no over-sweet ballads and just a solid collection of vital, enjoyable rock music help Sonic Boom honestly be one of the best Kiss albums. How many bands from the 70s, in all honesty, can actually say that an album they made these days is as good as something from their hey day ? Not many.

Sonic Boom is a seriously good album and you should definitely overcome your cynicism and give it a try, you won't forget it.

Sonic Boom was released by Kiss in 2009. I remember getting this album the same day that it was put out. I was satisfied with it then, and I am satisfied with it now. The material--made up of eleven songs--is nicely crafted and catchy. The majority of the cuts are sung by either Gene Simmons or Paul Stanley. Eric Singer sings on "All for the Glory," and Tommy Thayer handles the vocals on "When Lightning Strikes." "Modern Day Delilah"--sung by Stanley--sports a memorable guitar riff. "Yes I Know (Nobody's Perfect)" is a fun, rousing composition that features a remarkable, energy-filled vocal performance from Simmons. The grinding, formidable "I'm an Animal"--sung by Simmons--is a cool, infectious piece that features an engaging, indelible chorus. Sonic Boom is just over 43 minutes. The CD booklet includes the song lyrics and a color photo of the band. In addition to this album, two other discs are contained--the compilation Kiss Klassics (almost 54 minutes) and Kiss Live in Buenos Aires--a live DVD that is just over 34 minutes. All three of these discs add up to an enjoyable experience. Sonic Boom is recommendable.

This album is a blast. Fun. I'm An Animal is the best Gene song in a very long time. Danger Us is a blast. There is certainly a lot of cheese on here, but I'm glad there's not too much talk of chasing skirts because at their age I think it'd be kinda gross.

I think songs 2 (Russian Roulette) and 3 (Never Enough) are pretty lame. Russian Roulette simply doesn't grab me. It seems like a real dead fish after Modern Day Delilah, I've always hated that guitar tone Gene pulls out from the 80's. It's far too bright/sharp. Yuck. And the riff is typical and formulaic. Boring as heck. Never Enough is the same from Paul. Sounds like a left-over from Psycho Circus which is the lowest point of his otherwise impressive career. Just cliche after pointless cliche. It's as if he looked for rhymes he'd thrown in the trash from a decade ago.

From there things improved exponentially. 'Yes I Know' is a great time and embodies Gene perfectly with a tremendous sense of humor. It really moves. Sure 'Stand' is pure cheddar, but it rocks and the guitars never stop and thankfully is not a ballad, plus you never forget the tune. Moreover, they sing it loud, proud and shamelessly. These guys are freakin' 60 (or nearly), it's awesome. Stand, jump, shout it out (loud)! Great tune!

The great songs keep going to the end. The guitar tunes are terrific. I love the harmonies and how you can hear the lack of overdubs. It's real voices and it's raw. The production is superb. It's not polished, it's the old dogs doing it old school and it's fantastic.

My only other comment is how funny all the people whining about the old days and what Ace and Peter created. I love those guys. No doubt about it. Have you heard Peters latest album? There is some serious garbage.

KISS * New cd "Sonic Boom"....Bah Bah BOOOM!! Boom-Boom-Boom!
Glad to see they've got the new CD on the way!
The first song "Modern Day Delilah" sounds like Creatures/Revenge style KISS, instead of R&RO/Love Gun era KISS. (Either way, it's something new!) Looking forward to Ace's "Anomaly" as well!
