You wanted the best, well this will certainly do...!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sonic Boom (Audio CD)
Got the new Kiss CD today, two days before it hits the shops (cheers to Amazon) and it's considerably better than the last few releases from Gene and Paul.
The limited edition comes with a CD of Kiss Klassics (their spelling not mine!) and so the question is: would any of the Sonic Boom songs make a 'best of' CD in the future? The answer is surprisingly - yes. One song stands out for me as being of the old school kiss-style that will become a fan favourite and it is the track 'Yes I Know (Nobody's Perfect)' which to me sounds like the new 'Ladies Room'. For this song alone I'm glad I bought the album.
The other songs are fairly good thumpers but nothing to make you delete Love Gun or Destroyer on a full mp3 player in favour of Sonic Boom. I would say however that the guitar work on the new CD is very, VERY, good. Tommy seems to have found an Ace sound but then turned it up to 11.
If you are a Kiss fan I think you'll find this to be a worthy addition to the collection and you'll love 'Yes I Know'. If you don't own any Kiss CDs then the limited edition gives you the new stuff, the classics and a DVD so you can see some of the type of live show that made them superstars.

Sorry but I feel that "Say Yeah" would also make a "best of" CD. Easily the best song on the album for them to perform live too. "Yes I know..." is a good song and all (they all are!) and each to their own but there is more than just the one track which stands out (they all do!)

Does anyone know which Kiss song this verse is from.
In a world of doubt and danger, you see it everywhere,
Your friends turn into strangers, does anybody care,
But when all hope is lost, i'm gonna be there, whatever the cost,
When you feel lost.
Someone to hols you with all of their might,
Through the darkness night, i'll be there.

That song is (I'll Fight) Hell to Hold You
Track 2 from the Crazy Nights Album. A forgetten gem IMHO
