After reading a tediously predictable review in Kerrang last week ( they didn't like it - big surprise - ! ), i thought i'd better dig this out of my 'must watch' pile and see for myself. I needn't have worried. This is a great live DVD, and if you're a Kiss fan annoyed at their lack of new material, this is like a gift from the gods of rock.
The sound is big and punchy, the band tight as hell, and Paul rocks out like no-one else. The nice touch here is the inclusion of obscure Kiss tracks, and you realise just how stellar that band's back catalogue actually is, as well as the material from Paul's superb '78 solo LP. Songs like 'Magic Touch', 'Wouldn't You Like To Know Me', 'Move On', all get a new lease of life, coming across as urgent and vital.
Paul's voice, remarkably, is the best it's been for years, and it proves once and for all, that without Paul, there is no Kiss. Roll on the new LP this year..!
