Product Description


The highlight of this MTV gig is the cover of the Stones' "2,000 Man," which Kiss covered on Dynasty. Though the four original members play together on only two tunes ("2,000 Man" and the first real acoustic guitar version of their hit "Beth"), the two tracks ("Rock and Roll All Nite" and "Nothin' to Lose") on which they're joined by current members--drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Bruce Kulick--are also magical. The rest of the album, featuring only the current lineup, has some great moments when Kiss's songwriting prowess really shines through. Songs like "Comin' Home," "Sure Know Something," "See You Tonight," and "Goin' Blind" sound amazing in the acoustic format. However, things get a little miserable when they pull out two overwrought ballads, "I Still Love You" and "Every Time I Look at You," toward the end of the 15-song CD. --Adem Tepedelen

5.0 out of 5 stars KISS Unplugged Sept. 29 2007
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
In the early 1990s the "MTV Unplugged" show was a complete success with bands like Nirvana,performances were bands would play their songs acouticly much to the delight of fans.KISS were certainly aware of the Unplugged shows as in 1995 they had their own unplugged show wich was released as "KISS MTV Unplugged" in 1996 both as an album and a concert movie.The band would play rarely performed live songs on the album such as "Coming Home" and "Plaster Caster".

Here KISS are not playing not their classic songs,but their rare songs.The ones they never play at concerts like "Sure Know Something","Going Blind" and "Do You Love Me?".The songs sound great in their acoustic form and here they are played the way they were written,on acoustic guitars.The only song that is not a rarity on here is the well overplayed "Rock`N`Roll All Nite",wich still sounds really good.

This show is basicaly KISS just playing their song in an acoustic version with no explosion,makeup or pyrotechnics at all,just guys with guitars playing songs,at simplest as it gets.Its definatly a KISS show at its greatest but the music is really good and fans thanks to the release of this album know what KISS sounds like unplugged.

Its no secret that an unplugged show for a famous band is a great recipe for succes.It worked for Nirvana,KISS and many others and fans will always pay for it.To the many bands out there who have yet to release an acoustic album:why not?Fans will be happy about it and its garenteed succes,that is if you can play the songs correctly!

Its safe to say that had the "MTV Unplugged" concert never happened,the 1996 reunion of the original members with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss wouldn`t have seen the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Money's Worth!!!! July 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are a lot of rock bands out there and eager to prove how good their crafts are when it comes to musical acrobatics with the aid of technology-aided gadgets. During the heavy metal hair band days, a not-so-great musician can make their music a work of art if you watch them play on their music videos. Fast hands and hell-raising voices and exhibitions. But their musical skills were not tested until they play music using raw instruments and come up with very crisp and raw sounds. Thanks to MTV's creative concept - MTV Unplugged which gave real musicians prove to their fans how good they are. Kiss' Unplugged album have just proven their great skills. Only few people out there have the guts to go hard-rockin' using acoustic instruments. And to name a few, Billy Idol, Bryan Adams, Tesla, Eric Clapton & Sting. Am looking forward for Van Halen, Aerosmith, Poison, Warrant, Deep Purple, Journey & Pink Floyd to go UNPLUGGED!!! I dare you guys 'coz there are millions of fans out there to get your acoustic album if you will think of having one. TO KISS, YOU GUYS ARE A FAB!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Proof positive of Kiss' songwriting ability July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
During the 1990's, it seemed every band was releasing an MTV Unplugged album. So Kiss, savvy businessmen that they were, decided to release their version with a unique twist. Kiss Unplugged included the reunion of the original lineup of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss. This album would lead to the cash cow that became the return of the original Kiss in full makeup that were worldwide superstars from 1974-1979.
However, what this album should be best known is for the recorded proof of Simmons and Stanley's underrated songwriting abilities and the strong musicianship of the 1995 or "new" version of Kiss that included guitarist Bruce Kulick and drummer Eric Singer. Like Eric Clapton and Neil Young's albums from the MTV Unplugged series, Kiss' version is largely comprised of lesser known album tracks or "deep cuts", several of which the band hadn't performed in many years. The excellent tracks "Comin' Home" and "Goin' Blind" are salvaged from the great but muddy sounding Hotter Than Hell album and show how innovative Simmons' playing was in the early years. "See You Tonight" from Simmons' solo album is a true surprise and blows the original away. Stanley's voice is in fine form throughout, especially on the ballads "I Still Love You" and "Every Time I Look At You." Eric Singer's drumming is very strong here, throwing in quick fills on many of the tracks but never overplaying. Bruce Kulick's playing on the album is also great, particularly on the hard rocker "Domino", the somber "A World Without Heroes", and the aforementioned "Goin' Blind.

Not since alive have, I feel , KISS come out with a decent live album.
ALIVE 2? It's just songs played live ( or studio? who cares )it lacks feeling.
ALIVE 3 Was not done with heart, there are some highlights and Eric Singer saves this album from total blandness.
ALIVE 4- While much greater than alive 2 and 3, probably lacks luster from the drumming, face it Peter does not have the chops anymore...
Unplugged is one of those things where if ace and peter did it would sound horrible, you need Kulick on acoustic, sure Ace is the best KISS axeman live, but for acoustic, Kulick is right!
Eric Singer, by far probably too good a drummer for Kiss, he is exceptional and delivers the goods to old and new Kiss songs...

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Walks the Walk
Songwriting is not something people frequently mention when talking about KISS. Image first, then the tongue and, maybe, if you're lucky, they'll mention a tune or two. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Too predictable...
Ancient as they are, Kiss is still a band with great range. I'm not talking about the musical scale here, I'm talking about types of songs they are/were able to pull off well. Read more

I don't understand why this Unplugged album is not put in the ranks with Eric Clapton's and Paul McCartney's. It is clearly as good (or, dare I say, better) than these. Read more

I won't get long winded on this like I did on my Revenge, Psycho Circus, or Creatures of the night reviews. Unplugged showed how talented these musicians are. Read more
