3.0 out of 5 stars Original Kiss 1997, February 23, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Alive! [2 CD Remastered] (Audio CD)
After years of average Kiss through various personnel changes and a change of label, it is refreshing to hear the original four members unite for a live album. If the commercialism would ever cease for these four, this lineup has some potential to produce better studio music for their audience. All four are gifted in their craft but seem to get caught up in their own grandeour. Putting aside various solo projects, acting careers and egos, this lineup of KISS is probably the best rock and roll/ metal band that the human race will ever hear or see. It is a shame that the children of the audience which grew up with KISS will have nothing to compare them to except for some cheap punk bands, replica pop metal bands and whatever passes for metal today. What these four left to civilation will be marveled at for years to come. Their latest studio album "psycho-circus" demonstrates the potential of Gene, Paul, Peter and Ace has accomplished musicians and masters of their craft but once again the chemistry between the four is volatile as shown in the song, "within" with various vocal changes between Paul, Gene and Ace. It seems that each wants to be 'macho uno' which leaves each musician wondering, "I can do this myself." Aside from their personas and their greed, Kiss still remains an accomplished rock and roll band.
