Very much alive!
on 11 August 2002
I bought this album back when it first came out, nine years ago, and back then, it was one of my absolute favorite albums.
Other records may have overtaken "Kiss Alive III" in that respect since, but it is still a very good rock n' roll album.
"Alive III" contains mainly newer Kiss material (well, new in 1993, anyway), such as "Creatures Of The Night", "Take It Off", "I Was Made For Lovin' You" and the silly (but entertaining) "I Just Wanna". The sound is great (probably overdubbed like Alive and Alive II!), and Bruce Kulick was always a better guitarist than Ace Frehley.
There are no really weak tracks on "Alive III" - Stanley, Simmons, Kulick and Singer perform rockin' versions of "Rock And Roll All Nite", "Detroit Rock City", "Domino" and "I Love It Loud" - and if you're into rock n'roll with a goodly pinch of pop metal, this is a really excellent choice.
