Remember back in 1999-2000 when we, the KISS-fans
were waiting for the 4th live album, titled Alive 4? Well it’s
finally released… under the title “Alive: The Millennium Concert”.
Actually we get 4 CD’s because “Alive! 1975-2000” features the
classic live albums; “Alive” (1975), “Alive II” (1977), “Alive III”
(1993), and “Alive: The Millennium Concert” (2000).
hasn’t released a “new” album since “Psycho Circus”
(1998) but since then we’ve got “countless” best-of and other
compilations albums and DVD’s. Okay, the live DVD’s are great and
Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have released solo-albums… but we want
from KISS. Do you get it Mr. Stanley and Mr. Simmons??
Apart from music KISS has released more
merchandise than you can afford to buy; Deodorants, Hats, Leather
Jackets, KISS-dolls, Pinball machines, Comic Books, T-shirts,
Lunchboxes, yes, everything you can imagine. And this is no joke;
You can buy KISS-condoms… and you can even be buried in a
KISS-Casket. No wonder that KI$$ has more money than God.
Well I’m quite angry now… why couldn’t they just
release “Alive: The Millennium Concert” separately? To get the
Millennium concert you have to buy this 4 discs release. You are
very, very smart Mr. Simmons…! And I’m sure he is laughing all the
way to the bank.
Well… sorry about my little temper tantrum because
if you choose to invest in this 4 CD release, you’re in for a treat.
The sound is excellent and KISS “ALIVE! 1975-2000” also adds a pair
of bonuses: The single version of “Rock and Roll All Nite” to the
“Alive II” disc and “Take it Off” to “Alive III”. The deluxe
packaging includes a more than 60 pages booklet filled with photos
and an informative essay written by noted KISS expert Ken
Get it or forget it.
