  • The only reason this CD doesn’t get a 5 star rating from me is that the last 5 songs were done in a studio. They are great songs, but they could have put them on another album and used some of their other live works to fill up the last side of the album. This CD features live versions of songs from Destroyer, Love Gun, and Rock And Roll Over. It has the mega hit “Detroit Rock City”, and their Top Ten Hit “Beth”. Beth and Hard Luck Woman are the only slow songs of the CD, the rest are hard hitting Rock-N-Roll. Kiss has won countless awards for best live show and once you hear this CD, you’ll understand why. Also, check out any live videos of them on tour and you’ll know why they are so hot. They have a huge following around the world and thousands of fan clubs. The album was recorded live in Los Angeles at the Forum before thousands of screaming fans. They heard Ace’s screaming guitar on King of the Night Time World and on Shock Me, a song written about when Ace was literally electrocuted on stage. They witnessed Peter Criss’ sounding like an approaching train on the song God Of Thunder and seen all the fire and explosions of the Greatest Metal Band of all time. No other band in history is as easily recognized as KISS. I’ve seen them perform in 79 84 and 96 and hope to see them in Oct. 2000, and let me say that no one puts on a better show than them.This is Rock music pure and simple.
