KISS Alive! The Millennium Concert

mbs5150
Throughout their career KISS has made their share of live albums and have been ridiculed by rumors of not being completely live recordings and for KISS this fact has been proven to be true by their own admissions however any artist who says that their concert recordings are completely live without having to correct a few things here and there are in fact liars but with KISS they are examined even closer as their act is more about what you see and feel rather than what you hear. My first listen to KISS was from their first concert album ALIVE (1975) and that album rings true with my previous statement,and that it did and with ALIVE 2 (1977) it too made you feel you were a part of the show even though it too was not totally the complete show from beginning to end as they wanted the music to reflect off the most recent studio albums (Destroyer,Rock And Roll Over,Love Gun) and not repeat the songs off ALIVE, but also the sound seemed much more polished than its predecessor but it still gave you the feeling of being a part of the show even if you were not actually there and that theme has carried them through decade after decade so when a big event not just for the group but for everybody and everyone who is living,it seemed appropriate for KISS to once again take advantage of this and use it to their favor, thus came KISS ALIVE THE MILLENNIUM CONCERT recorded at Vancouver's B.C. Place on December 31st 1999 in front of another packed audience of KISS ARMY fanatics, to be a part of this actual show then be able to hear it was an experience more so for my own ego as i would be able to tell what was fixed and what was actually live. First, I just want to say that this is the way I want to remember the band as and not the way they are now (not with Tommy and Eric wearing Ace and Peter's characters) this was the group that started it all and this album does that and more,from the opening track of Psycho Circus to the last explosion of Rock and Roll All Night and everything in between, this album does what its supposed to do and then some. Now, to be honest from someone who was at this show there was some things that were fixed due to mechanical problems with equipment and stage effects and some of Paul's vocals and Peter's were redone here and there but no artist is going to leave those in and put it out for the fans to buy, that would be suicide, so in the end this album does what its supposed to do and that is to make the listener feel as if they are right in the middle of a concert and as Paul Stanley said before "you don't just listen with your ears, you do with your eyes as well" Also, the credits on this page says Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer are on this one...that is WRONG!!! its ACE & PETER!!!!

Back in 1978 I was 15 years old, and looking to expand my musical knowledge so when a mate of mine gave me a cassette with the words ‘Double Platinum’ written on the case I took it home and gave it a fair listen. That night I became a Kiss fan, I knew nothing about them and hadn’t even seen a picture of them but wanted more. It was a bit of a surprise when I saw what they looked like, but I was soon a paid up member of the UK Kiss Army, and had the logo emblazoned on the back of my denim jacket. I finally got to see them at Stafford with the Simmons/Stanley/Cusano/Carr line-up (musically the best in my opinion, although not the most fun as it was a stripped down show with no make-up or effects). After a while I moved on, and didn’t search out the band as much as I had previously, as ‘Animalize’ was a disappointment for me (although not nearly as much as ‘Dynasty’ or ‘Unmasked’ to be fair), and I couldn’t see them ever doing anything worthwhile again, although I was hopeful. But, then the originals got back together and I caught them on the reunion tour in ’96 and once again I toyed with their music but while it was okay, it wasn’t great. What has happened to the band I had once loved so much? When I saw the reviews for ‘Sonic Boom’ I was amazed, so sought it out and while it was okay, it wasn’t brilliant. Many critics were saying that it was the best thing for years, but when the albums being compared against are ‘Hot In The Shade’ et al is it really that hard?

So when ‘Monster’ started being touted as the best thing since sliced bread I was more than a little dubious. True, this line-up has now been together for quite some time (even if it is only their second album together), but how could the new album compare against the old?

So, I put it on and for the next 52 minutes was mesmerised, as this really is the Kiss of old. It has to be the best studio album of theirs since ‘Lick It Up’ in ’83, and it might even be the best since ‘76’s ‘Destroyer’ – and I have every studio album they have released so I’m not saying that lightly. This is Kiss doing what they do best, anthem after anthem with just a little tongue in cheek as first Paul and then Gene take the lead vocals. “Freak” is a nod back to “God Of Thunder” and I found that I was comparing the new songs to the old. This is particularly true of the songs where Tommy and Eric take the leads. “Outta This World” could have come from the spaceman as it tips the hat to “Rocket Ride” while Eric’s “All For The Love of Rock & Roll” has the cat all over it. The penultimate song of the album proper (I have ‘The International Tour Edition’ which has a bonus song, and there is another version that has a live cut of “King of the Night Time World” as well) is “Take Me Down Below” which sounds like a Gene special (although apparently co-written by Paul, Gene and Tommy) but although he sings the first verse, Paul takes the second. I have been racking my brain and can’t think of another instance where this has happened.

If you have never heard a Kiss album then this isn’t the place to start, get the ‘Alive’ albums then ‘Destroyer’, followed by ‘Love Gun’ and ‘Rock and Roll Over’. But, if you have ever worn the make-up or sung along to “Rock n Roll All Nite” then take it from me that these guys are back with a bang. Now, where are my platforms??...

Monster is the twentieth official studio album by the legendary American Rock band Kiss, it was released in 2012, around fourty years after the band’s inception, it was produced by Paul Stanley and Greg Collins and it is their second studio album with the Stanley/Simmons/Singer/Thayer line-up (although Singer and Thayer have both been involved with the band in different capacities for years and years).

Monster follows up the 2009 Sonic Boom album, which was seen by a great many fans as a return to form, or reaffirmation of the band’s quality and as probably one of the band’s best efforts since the Seventies. A large part of the album’s success was in deliberately using equipment and tones that they would’ve used in the Seventies, as well as concentrating on the Hard Rock part of their signature sound and not filling the album up with experiments, strings, choirs or ballads. Monster is very much constructed in the same vein as Sonic Boom

Throughout their history the band have also made some questionable decisions with regards to hiring outside writers to contribute to the albums instead of band members, and with Monster, the band are making a big deal out of the fact that the band sat down and wrote all the material themselves.

The material that the band came out with has everything you’d expect from a Kiss album that’s mission statement is pure hard Rock. If it wasn’t so enjoyable it would almost seem like a cynical textbook run through of how to write and structure good Rock music.

There’s loads of lead guitar, there are fun and simple drumbeats that make everything catchy, as well as touches of cowbells and hand-claps to make it fun, there’s a mix of different vocals (Paul and Gene take lead vocals on different tracks as usual, and the other guys get a bit of an airing too, like on Sonic Boom) and structurally there are a lot of fun stop/start mechanics and instrument-drop-in-drop-out dynamics.

The album kicks off with the energetic lead single ‘Hell Or Hallelujah’ which is reminiscent of some sort of mixture of pre-existing high energy Kiss songs like ‘I Stole Your Love’ ‘Modern Day Delilah’ and ‘I Pledge Allegiance To The State Of Rock And Roll.’ Its simple enough to be fun, but it has a bit of depth to it too, its heavy for Kiss’ standards, and there’s great lead guitar work. It’s a bit of a shame that there’s nothing else on the album that’s this fast though, about two more songs in this tempo would’ve really did it for me personally.

There are some great slower, but still hard tracks like ‘Wall Of Sound’ which actually reminds me of Foghat more than anything, as well as ‘The Devil Is Me’ and ‘Take Me Down Bellow’ which are great stompy hard rock moments.

There are also a few tracks like ‘Long Way Down,’ which has a Zeppelin sort of feel in parts, and ‘All For The Love Of Rock N Roll’ that aren’t really in the same sort of driving pounding direction at all and add a bit variety to the album.

My favourite track on the album is probably ‘Back To The Stone Age’ which seems like a sneaky modernization of ‘Deuce’ but is still a great song despite the obvious homage.

To be fair, its surprising that any band this far into their career can put out such a fresh and energetic record but of course, some people will just never ever like any Kiss without Peter Criss or Ace Frehley in the line-up and if you haven’t liked anything the band have done in ages, then I don’t see this record changing your mind.

Overall the album is pretty much in the same vein as Sonic Boom; not identical but certainly similar, and if you liked that album, then I imagine that this will satisfy you as well. If you desperately need originality or youthful sounds then look elsewhere, but if you like solid, classic sounding, mid-tempo rock music its surely worth a listen. It isn’t the best album that any band made ever, but its definitely one of the best Kiss albums since the Seventies.

The album Killers was released in June, 1982. Since then it has become an album that most people see as a useless compilation album by a band that wants to balance the commercial disappointments by their previous albums, trying to bring glory days back. However, I don't see it like that. This album is very special to me, always has been and will always be. I remember those days in the late eighties when I listened to it all the time, I fell asleep to it, I woke up to it, listening to it before and after school. I especially recall those days when I was very sick lying at home reading Alan Dean Foster's adapted book Aliens, listening to Killers meanwhile all the time on cassette, having it taken out and put back if one side was over, playing it again and again non-stop. Very sadly, I have lost the cassette copy I had since then, but the memories the album gave me can never be forgotten. I especially liked the new songs with the unique guitar sound provided by Bob Kulick, brother of the band's future guitarist Bruce Kulick, and the guitarist on Paul Stanley's club tour along with Eric Singer. I liked the old songs too, Love Gun, Cold Gin, Sure Know Something for instance, although I have always much preferred Stanley-Simmons-Carr-Kulick Kiss, I was a big fan of this line up Kiss back in the eighties and nineties. I have never understood why the band didn't release an official live album in the eighties, because they were so good live, as you can see and hear on the lot of bootleg videos and concerts. Eric Carr and Bruce Kulick (though, Bruce is not on this album), in my opinion, were much better musicians than the ones in the classic line up, though in the last fifteen years, it has been so popular to say the old line up is the bestest because they're the originals. The band was very much lucky that they were able to find a superb drummer, Eric Singer, to replace Eric Carr. The album Killers itself in structure and atmosphere has a lot in common with the band's other compilation called Smashes, Thrashes and Hits, which I also had on cassette back in those days liking it too. My favourite song on Killers is I'm Legend Tonight, into which I remember I deleted a two second break accidentally having pushed the record button once. Everytime I hear the album ever since I know where the break was in the song on my old cassette. It's so strange. The other fantastic song is Sure Know Something, of course. So, not to make it too long, this album to me is not a useless compilation at all, though musically much time has passed, but something very special in my memory book, deserving to be given 3.5 stars.

A rush-released compilation intended to try and scrape back some commercial success after Music From the Elder bombed, Killers is notable for including four songs recorded especially to it - but alas, none of them are particularly diverting. I'm a Legend Tonight is a decent idea weighed down by dated production and a lack of spark, as well as the band's inability to pull off the really over the top Meat Loaf operatic rendition the album really demanded. Down On Your Knees is yet another juvenile Kiss song about sex, Nowhere to Run is an utterly pedestrian "my woman done me wrong" rock lament, and Partners In Crime threatens to break out into the sort of disco beat that marred Dynasty. As for the old classics, as always they're better heard in the context of the Alive! albums. In short, Killers is utterly needless.

KISS Symphony: The DVD

Movie · 2003 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
Kiss’s Symphony: Alive IV DVD was recorded back in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, with David Campbell conducting the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. The band consists of stalwart members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanely as well as origional drummer Peter Criss and ‘new’ guitarist Tommy Thayer in place of Ace Frehly, all back in make up and costumes.

The concert is split into three sections, one with just the band playing up tempo rock songs, one with the band and a string section playing ballads and another with the band as well as the complete symphony orchestra playing hits and rock songs. There are all sorts of explosions, pyro, band members flying on wires, fake blood, special lighting and big screens making the whole thing as interesting to watch as you’d expect from Kiss and this is in addition to the whole orchestra made-up in Kiss style make up.

As a concert; this is a great success, vastly entertaining, visually stunning, well performed and great sounding. The DVD is let down largely however by a crazy and over enthusiastic editing job that flits hyper-actively around, concentrating on all the right things and rarely settling long enough for you to get into anything. I can understand how the makers wanted to convey the excitement and scale of this special concert, and wanted to keep your attention but in my opinion things have been taken too far. After all, as a home viewer most people will want to watch the band play live, not the audience members dancing or jiggling their chests.

If you can get over this larger problem as well as any personal problems you may have with track listing or general cheesiness (people have complained on various levels including Paul Stanley’s dialogue, the more syrupy songs like ‘Shandi,’ or with the orchestra being painted up etc) then you will find a fantastic DVD that is a lot of fun to watch.

In addition to the concert, there is a fairly substantial, but not astounding, making-of documentary covering the origins, practices and build up to the concert.

Newcomers or people who actively dislike mixtures of rock and orchestras may be better suited checking out the fantastic Rock The Nation or Kissology Vol. 1 DVDs; however overall, Kiss Symphony: Alive IV is a very good product, hampered by odd editing choices, but ultimately worth the time and money of most Kiss fans.

Kiss have a lot of DVDs on the market, all of varying quality and taken from all different eras of the band’s career. 2005′s Rock The Nation DVD is taken from their successful 2004 Rock The Nation Tour which sees the band, now with Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer in the line up (as on their following ‘Sonic Boom,’ and ‘Monster,’ studio albums) replacing Peter Criss and Ace Frehly on drums and guitar after a classic-line-up reunion.

The band absolutely deliver in terms of performance, the songs are delivered in an absolutely professional and yet energetic fashion, with a set list that concentrates primarily on rock songs from the 70s as opposed to focusing more on ballads and later material. If you like Kiss mostly for their rock songs from the 70s, then pick up a copy of this DVD right away, but if you only like their 80s output then their are other Kiss DVDs out their which will serve you better.

As a DVD, Rock The Nation is excellent; with fantastic sound and mixing, as well as great camera work and editing (as opposed to the over-edited Symphony DVD) and it is really one of, if not the best looking and sounding DVDs Kiss have released.

Classics like ‘Deuce,’ ‘Shout It Out Loud,’ ‘Love Gun,’ and ‘Detroit Rock City,’ are all in evidence, as well as a few choices you wouldn’t expect like ‘Unholy,’ and ‘War Machine,’ both of which are fantastic additions. Of course you get all the pyro, smoke bombs, make up, fake blood, big screens and flying band members that make Kiss so entertaining live and Paul Stanley is very communicative with the crowd, helping the band to come across like they really appreciate being up there on stage.

In terms of extras; There is a multi-angle feature called Kiss Power Vision, where you can choose which band member you want to see, which can interrupt the screen with picture in picture scenarios, but it can be turned off. Also there is a behind the scenes documentary and set of interviews, but rather than be accessible as a complete feature separately, it is inter-cut with the main concert every few songs or so.

If these two special features potentially interrupting a complete concert don’t sound like they’d annoy you, if you like Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer in the band and if you like the track listing (They can’t play every song you like on every DVD) then get yourself a copy of Rock The Nation, otherwise content yourself with one of the many other Kiss DVDs on the market, such as Kissology Volume 1.
