5.0 out of 5 stars Unmasked, Unplugged, Unbelievable!, 14 July 2006

This review is from: MTV Unplugged (Audio CD)
KISS' fourth live album is nothing likke the three that preceded it. Recorded during their convention tour of 1995, the set was used to showcase the band on MTV Unplugged. The critics who had mocked KISS as being noisey, talentless noise-poluters since they formed were forced to sink their faces into large helpings of humble pie as KISS pulled off what few would have considered possible of them before.

Without a single amplifier, the band shine and play with real, harsh rock attitude. The main standouts are Comin' Home, Goin' Blind, World Without Heroes, Rock Bottom, 2,000 Man, Beth, Nothin' to Lose and Rock and Roll all Nite but in truth they are all superb. Many a forgten track is giving a much needed airing and the well established songs still sound fresh and vibrant. And then there was the story... After 15 years apart, the original members of KISS reunited. Ace Frehley was back to his best with 2,000 Man (despite hating playing acoustic) and Peter Criss sings possibly the best version of Beth available and shakes the room down in classic Catman fashion for Nothin to Lose.

Radically different from KISS usual material, this live album is superb nonetheless and a real slap in the face from critics who've never been more wrong in their lives.

Simply stunning is the only way to describe this disc,humble pie by the truck load for the doubters,as with the 2 prev releases Revenge and alive 3 the band had gelled to perfection,the musicianship on display top notch,having Ace and Peter appear was just the icing on the cake but make no mistake this disc would have been a success without them,the track listing is perfection classics along side stage favourites and obcurities,how cool is 'Comin Home'?,'See you Tonite' superb, even 'Plaster Caster' scores highly,this release couldnt be topped - could it? ,well yes the dvd on Kissolgy 3 is spectacular,'God of Thunder' country style,remember what i've said previously about humour,works everytime,yee hah

5.0 out of 5 stars very good show here., 4 Aug 2012

This mtv show lead to the original members getting back together. unplugged was a hit show on mtv back when they still played music that is. Bands would come on a do a accoustic show which was then shown on tv. This made accoustic shows quite popular for a while. On here we have the band lay down some wonderful versions of their songs. The japanese version has a extra track on it too. Kiss's songs translate very well to accoustic guitars and they just sound great here. This is a fan favorite for good reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic how it should be done, 11 July 2014
This review is from: Unplugged (Audio CD)
I had the VHS copy of this years ago and remember it being great but forgot how great it really was.
For me the Kulick/Singer version of Kiss is by far the best and the guys don't disappoint on this recording.
The sound quality is excellent and mixed brilliantly. The acoustic guitars sound amazing and the songs work so well in the acoustic format.
Highlights for me are Rock Bottom and Every Time I Look At You but the rest of the songs are amazing too.
Kulick is on form with some beautiful solos and some funky licks.
The only thing that turns me off a bit is when Ace and Criss come on, I know for fans of the original Kiss line up would love it but for me they should of stayed at home and left it to the professionals. Beth and Rock and Roll All Nite are great songs but 2000 man and Nothing to Loose are defiantly skippers to me.
When you hear Ace and Bruce to back to back solos it feels like a guitar teacher and his young student with Ace filling the role of the latter!!!
Overall a fantastic recording and is being played over and over in the car at the minute, just wish it was longer!!!
