I love KISS and there is no question about it. Yet in all that love of everything, or almost everything that bears the brand that I can possibly buy – this particular item goes down as perhaps the most sub-par of the entire batch of what one can own on video. I come to this conclusion based entirely on the minimal amount of content that we are given for it is quite ridiculous. Releasing five KISS videos all from what seem to be an album apiece this DVD is not a collection by any means and instead a mere handful. Perhaps there was some legal issue with Universal releasing a larger and more content rich product but I feel this was done without KISS’ blessing or approval. I do know that a lot more KISS videos exist even from the time frame that this piece supposedly covers. In that I can’t recommend this for any fan of the group in any fashion whatsoever and as a matter of fact I watched a friend’s to even review it. That is how much a disappointment I had felt it was. If you are wondering that if by passing on this you be kept from owning these videos then you will be happy to know that all are available in some fashion on KISS licensed releases. You are better served by purchasing either “KISS Exposed” or KISS X-Treme Closeup” for they have these clips and a whole lot more. Leave this on the shelf at all costs and save your money for something else. You will thank me later, I just know it.
