Alive! back in 1975 was exciting and the best way to hear KISS, live onstage, with all the Paul Stanley banter of 'how many people like the taste of alcohol??', the long drum solo on "100,000 Years" and the rest of what made up arguably the best live album ever. Then two years later, KISS does it again with 'Alive II', not as good but still rockin' live versions of songs from 1976 - 77 (with a 4th side of studio cuts) ... then in the 90s they repeat the formula and by then KISS has long went from a rockin' guilty pleasure to a joke that became a shadow of its former self, not to mention more of a marketing machine than a rock band (not that marketing machines are bad, just that KISS by then simply wasn't the KISS of the makeup years, which for some was alright if that's the only KISS they knew) ... and now this box set with the Milennium concert. Fans would be better off with the recent DVD set 'Kissology vol. 1 (1974 - 77)' which in most fans views are their vintage, best years. Lick that up!
