5 Stars For The Music, 1 Star For The Greed...
, September 2, 2002
This review is from: The Very Best of Kiss (Audio CD)
Here's Kiss (aka Gene Simmons) following in Aerosmith's footsteps and running a close second in the "Greatest", "Ultimate", "Best Of", "Essential", "Classic Hits" sweepstakes. Didn't Kiss come out with a box set and an album called "Greatest Kiss" recently.
Not to mention "Double Platinum", "Smashes, Thrashes, & Hits" & "You Wanted The Best...".
You can not fault the music. The songs are imbedded in the hearts and souls of every kid who grew up with this band in the 70's. "Ace Frehley, lead guitar!" But the recycling of the music over and over is wearing thin. NO unreleased studio or live tracks, NO new music at all. "If it wasn't for the fans we would be nothing", Simmons always boasts. Well I am a Kiss fan, a Stones fan, an Aerosmith fan, a Skynyrd fan, a Tull fan, a Blue Oyster Cult fan, a Who fan etc...etc....and I ain't biting anymore. Excuse me while I go spin my vinyl copy of Alive I bought 30 years ago for under 5 bucks.
