Copycat band seeks gainful employment
on 29 December 2008
it was now beyond a joke,every album a couple of decent singles,a couple of average rockers to make you think they might be on the right track and the rest fillers,this disc is a perfect example of why cd's are killing the music world,in days gone by 30/40 minutes of your best was generally what was put out with some lesser tracks relegated to b'sides etc,with the advent of cd,quality control goes awol and its fill it up boys with as much as you can,how many discs in the cd generation do you own of new recordings which are genuinely 70 plus minutes of classics,not many - check your collection,this disc is overstocked with filler,certainly hide your heart(bon jovi clone) and forever(foriegner) are superb singles if not genuine kiss,betrayed certainly brings back memories of the 'duece' days,but really, rise to it(cinderella) and read my body(def lepard) is this acceptable from the greatest band in the world,from inovaters to copycat band really disappointing,thankfully the transient chart audience had moved elsewhere and kiss sales stalled,this didnt go platinum immediately,possibly never did and a wake up call was sent,the tour stumbled and faltered,but the set list was now far more acceptable to the kiss army ... from the depths there was only one way and that up!!!
