It would be nice if you guys would let Tommy & Eric play in their own style too btw. If I want to hear Ace I'll listen to Ace. Maybe that's too much to ask for? I'm sure those two have more to offer than just imitating the original members.
If you are going to purchase the physical CD release, I must say that the booklet for the CD is one of the best produced I've ever seen. The color is amazing and the pages are glossy. Great quality packaging. It includes some cool images from the band's career. It definitely adds to the quality of the item. If that's your thing.
I love that this collection has 40 tracks and that there's one from each album. This great concept is one many hardcore KISS fans would like to see the band apply to its live setlist (i.e., a 20-song set with one track from each of the band's 20 studio albums).
The audio quality of the tracks is superb. While I don't believe anything has been newly remastered, all of the tracks are crisp and clear.
While there's only one unreleased studio track on the album, I'm glad the 2000-era live tracks are on here. Three of them are from soundboard recordings during tours with the current lineup (i.e., Rock The Nation, Alive 35 and Sonic Boom Over Europe). We've all heard the studio recordings of these songs a million times, so having commercially unreleased live versions helps freshen them up.
My only gripe with KISS 40 is some of the songs included on the album are questionable. Is "Down On Your Knees" really the best song off Killers? Of course not. Many fans, including myself, would argue that "Nowhere To Run" blows it away. How about "Hold Me, Touch Me" from Paul's solo album? It's a great song but should it be on here instead of "Tonight You Belong To Me"? And why is Paul's demo of "God Of Thunder" on here instead of the iconic version by Gene? Also, because KISS 40 adheres to the one-track-per-album rule, certain KISS classics aren't included, such as "Calling Dr.Read more ›
