Product Description

Product Description

For over a quarter century, Kiss has shaped the face of popular music and rock culture. The "Kiss Alive Worldwide" tour saw the rebirth of rock's most incredible band. Who are these masked men and where did they come from? What did it take to reclaim their title as "The Hottest Band in the World?" After 18 years apart, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, Peter Criss and Gene Simmons overcame their past differences, finally reuniting the powerhouse original Kiss lineup that wrote rock and roll legend. This is Kiss and this is their story.

Amazon.ca

Kiss: The Second Coming is a band-sanctioned hagiography focusing on the profit-minded 1996 tour that found the '70s heavy-metal icons back in full-bore makeup and costumes for a time-trip back to their Alive II heyday. At 122 minutes, Second Coming is an hour too long for all but die-hard devotees, and peaks with its opening recap of the band's early fire-breathing years. After that, it's a quick run-through of good-days-gone-bad clichés before the long haul of backstage shots and gee-it's-great-to-be-back-on-the-playground testimonials takes over. Little insight is present, though there is a bit of comic myth-mocking during a sequence demonstrating the inflation of the stage show's gargantuan inflatable figures of Gene, Paul, Peter, and Ace. Three tour performances, including music videos for "Detroit Rock City" and "Shout It Out Loud," alleviate the boredom. --Rickey Wright

By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER on Sept. 16 2007
Format: DVD
The dvd was made in 1998 and was written and produced by now KISS spaceman Tommy thayer.A look at the 1996 KISS original lineup reunion.The dvd is 2 hours and 15 minutes wich is in some fans opinion too long but i think the longer the KISS dvd are the better it is because i always want more of a KISS dvd.

The second coming starts with a short look at the original band`s albums until love gun and then shows to Peter and Ace at the mtv unplugged wich leads to them coming back for the reunion 96-97 tour.It shows how the band needed practice to learn these old things again wich was not easy.They made press conferences for the tour and then went for a 2 year tour around the world;japan,usa,switzerland,france,sweede and other country around the world.

The reunion tour was one of the year`s most succesfull.There are cool backstage look at the band and funny stuff that happened .They also show KISS photo sesions and magazine covers.One of the best part is when KISS is backstage and Paul and Ace latter joined by Peter are dancing to the japanese version of `the macarena`song wich is like the funniest thing ever.Concert footages are there but you have to wait a while to see them.They shown gene`s birthday in japan,paul`s birthday and ace`s but not not peter`s.they also show people going backstage to meet them.

The dvd is good and long enough but they didnt included the psycho circus album stuffs i wish they did it would have been more representative of the reunion.I think they could have wait a bit and then they could have shown the psycho circus tour talk about the album,its photo sesions and more.

extras includes;shout it out loud,shandi and detroit rock city that probably are from the 96-97 tour.also there is a discography and kiss online information.

overall;a very good look at the reunion and tours along with extras and concert footage.worth your money very recomended dvd.To all fans.

SECOND COMING is a generally entertaining doco of KISS's 1996 reunion makes strange viewing for those who have read KISS AND MAKE UP.
Features reunion rehearsal footage which is pretty cool: viewers are treated to the sight of a scaled-down KISS minus all the glitz and pyrotechnics reduced to just four guys jamming and having fun. Other standouts include the sight of Gene wearing a shower cap while applying his makeup, the extremely lucky Paul Stanley surrounded by gorgeous butt nekkid women for a photo shoot as well as the amazing work that goes into designing the set for the tour and Peter Criss's brilliant drum solo.
The DVD also includes the live video of SHOUT IT OUT LOUD, and live performances of DETROIT ROCK CITY and SHANDI. This could be dismissed by some as just another license to print money to put in the pockets of the ageing Comic Book Monsters Of Rock, but if you're a die hard fan you'll probably enjoy it. It's just a shame that they're trying to relive their makeup glory days, it would have been cool to have seen some material from CREATURES OF THE NIGHT or REVENGE on here. Just because they weren't recorded with the Klassic Kiss lineup doesn't mean they're throwaways. Bruce Dickinson does some of the Bayley era Iron Maiden stuff in concert (SIGN OF THE CROSS) so why can't Kiss do UNHOLY or I LOVE IT LOUD with Ace and Peter?

Kiss has released some good tapes (Exposed, Extreme, kiss my ass, unplugged) but this is not one of them. I found this recently in the "cheap tape bin" of my local video store. They are running out of energy here, and releasing videos without alot of interesting content. The first half is interesting but material that kiss fans have seen already. the second half of the film is unessential - rock and roll over and love gun songs are played constantly in the background but none of the songs have been preformed. there are dumb clips of getting "psyched" before a concert (3 times enough already). There is Ace and Pauls birthday celebrations (why on tape?) the dialog is long and few between and no interviews to tie it all together like in the preious videos. I actually like psycho circus, but there are no videos from that period here except for the last 1 minute of the tape. What made Xtreme, Konfidential and exposed so good was full preformances of songs but there are only tidbits and clips of songs. Sorry Kiss but you sould have done better.

Any KISS video release is a good one (except 1987's "eXposed"). This DVD is a mostly a document of their Reunion Tour and what went in to creating and touring it. By the time this video hit the stores, things were back to being uneasy in the band again, with Criss and Frehley both to get kicked to the curb again. But the backstage footage is kind of interesting, as is the footage of all the prep work for the tour. You'll see footage of Pete and Gene trying on their old '70s costumes in Gene's house. Take a good look at Gene's house. Hardly looks like what you'd expect a Rock and Roll star's home to look like, does it?
A lot of KISS fans have moaned about the dearth of concert footage in this video, but KISS likes to play it close to the vest with that. We're STILL waiting for ALIVE 4, which I doubt will EVER get released. But maybe someday, when the Gene and Paul are old(er) and gray(er), we'll see ALIVE 4 hit the streets with a long-form concert video, which by that time will be a nostalgia piece.
