    This a great CD for all level of fans

    |
    Posted .

    Being a fan of the band for many years, I am glad this CD embodies selected work from the first album to their current line-up. Throughout the 70’s, the 80's and the 90's, to DRC soundtrack, and even to the import Killers, the box set, to the recent stuff with Tommy & Eric, KISS has gone through “phases” that is cool to hear with both CD’s in a few hours. If you are new to KISS this CD is a great place to start. Just being able to hear a “sample” of how each album sounded, you can draw your own conclusions if you want to pursue listening to any of those albums in their entirety. That is what I dig about this particular collection. On the other side of the coin, if you are a fan that is tired of hearing the same songs being used on complications, you might want to shy away from this CD. Unless you really want to hear the demo from Love Gun, called “Reputation” that Simmons sings or the three live tracks w/ the current line-up from the 2000’s (which aren’t too bad), I would suggest finding an alternative method of listen to these tracks to decide how you want spend your money. Again, If you are bummed or upset about the song selections for this particular CD’s collection, I would advise not getting it to avoid having any regret about buying the “same songs” and it end up being a coaster or just ends up collecting dust on a shelf. The one cool thing with the Best Buy exclusive is…. that it does come with nice “retro” KISS 70’s logo design Tee shirt (think the old school logo Rock and Roll Over insert or was it Love Gun??!! Anyways…). This retro shirt looks great for doing yard work or fixing any “Carr” (Lame KISS pun intended) in the near future.. If you are thinking of going to the St. John’s mall with some guys named Bruce or Vinnie to eat a bunch of popcorn and pretzels, this shirt would be a great conversation piece. Long story short, you get a retro shirt for an extra amount of cash.

    One of the better KISS Kompilations

    The fact this has at least one song off of every major release makes this one standout above the other Kompilations or Best of's from KISS. I like the live tracks but would have been happier with some truly never heard demos or unreleased tracks. Bad reputation has been on most all bootlegs you can get and if you watched American Idol season finale with KISS if you used Shazam you could listen to the song as many times as you wanted free. So even if you don't buy bootlegs you could hear the polished version if you used Shazam on the season finale of American Idol. A must for any KISS fan of course and the Best Buy version had a limited supply that came with a T-shirt that was kind of retro looking I have it too. If you are just getting into KISS and want to get a collection to start you off in the original stuff this is a good one and I'll listen to it in the car I'm sure and I have it on iTunes for work and home. Wish they would do " These Boots are made for Rockin'" that would have been a good bonus track!

    Never mind the haters and naysayers who complain about too many KISS collections. They don't understand that it's the record companies who put them out and not the artist, so all we can really do as fans is hope that they do a great job of it. And they most certainly did with this collection. Though it isn't perfect, it has enough "hits" to please the casual fan while also containing cool rarities and live cuts to please the more hardcore KISS Army members. I have purchased every KISS LP, cassette, and CD their record companies have ever released (I clearly have rock and roll pneumonia!) and feel this set is worthy to be in anyone's rock library. So buy it, crank it, and release your inner rock star as the fearsome foursome provide an amazing soundtrack for you to enjoy.

    I bought the version with a t-shirt. The cd comes unwrapped while the t-shirt is wrapped. Cover art is so so. Booklet is good, very glossy, but there are mistakes that long time KISS fans will pick up on. This happens alot with official releases for KISS so it's par for the course. What really stands out is the sound!!! I don't know if they remastered these again or if they just tinkered with volume but they sound very clear and loud. The track from Hotter Than Hell sounds amazing. Whole album should be done this way. I say if you are a curious or you are a true fan, pick this up.

    If you only have an outside interest in KISS...This is the collection for you. Great career spanning peek at some of their best popular cuts. If you are a serious fan, you may already have most of this but still worth adding to your KISSTORY...so to speak. Love the limited t - shirt it comes with. KISS is still a great band and this release shows you why. From the debut release to Monster, it is all represented here.

    The music is as timeless as the band. These two discs cover the entire KISS library and is not just another greatest hits release. The fact that there are some live tracks, previously unreleased just adds to it.

    The minute that I saw this was going to be sold at BestBuy I told my wife it would be the perfect Father's Day gift. Not only is the CD music great and came with a free KISS 40 T shirt, a really great bonus.

    Awesome quality at the best price I was able to find. Several family and friends also purchased this collection and all agree it is by far the finest remix and master ever produced by the group.

    Solid Compilation CD

    If you are a KISS fan this is well worth the money, especially with the bonus Best Buy T shirt!! There is one song from every KISS album and some of the selections are questionable, e.g., Shout It Out Loud over Rocket Ride from Alive 2, but all in all it does not disappoint.
