All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
The discount-priced 20th Century Masters compilation presents the highlights of the first half-decade of Kiss' existence, drawing from recordings originally released between 1974 and 1979. For that period, compilation producer Bill Levenson begins by picking four LP tracks from the band's initially unsuccessful first three albums: "Strutter" and "Deuce" from Kiss, the title track from Hotter Than Hell, and "C'mon and Love Me" from Dressed to Kill.
