5.0 out of 5 stars Best KISS compilation, August 27, 2002
This review is from: The Very Best of Kiss (Audio CD)
This is the best KISS compilation. A perfect introduction for those who are curious and a good mix tape for the die-hards. It's better than Smashes, Thrashes and Hits and Greatest Kiss because it goes longer. All The way up to 1992. The versions on this CD are the original ones. Which means "Rock and Roll All Nite" is the live version from Alive. All but one of their Top 40 hits are here (1978's "Rocket Ride" from AliveII is missing). Also "New York Groove" is indeed the Ace Frehley hit from 1978. KISS fans may find something missing. A track from the 80's like "Heaven's On Fire" could be here, as could a 70's one like "Black Diamond". One caveat: their are NO liner notes here. Just Album info for each song. It would be nice if Mercury would put liner notes on one of these KISS collections. At over an hour, though, this is a great introduction to the KISS legend.

Yes I just got this album, good to get New York Groove, killer song, wonderful vocals. Actually all four are great singers. There is a bus driver in my town of Toowoomba Australia with a Gene face tattoo on his left forearm that people see as they enter the bus.

This is without question the Kiss compilation to get. It is the perfect sampler covering their most productive and creative period.

Darth, it's because it's no longer KISS, but a bunch of pathetic imposters wearing the make-up and going out under the KISS name.
