I've only recently begun to listen to KISS, but I must say this album blew me away. There's already great reviews posted, so I'll keep mine short. I highly recommend this disc to all KISS fans and rock fans alike, it's simply amazing!

Please pay no attention to all of those other reviews that rate this at 3 stars or below. This album is well worth the money, and is a great addition to any KISS fan's collection. Yes, there are all th songs they have been touring with for three or four years, but who doesn't enjoy another version of your favorite song? The orchestra is a great addition to the bands already great talent.
Yeah is has been done before, so what, that means that no one else can do it? Bull. Hard rock bands playing with orchestras is really a great idea, and sounds teriffic. If you haven't hear Metallica's S&M, then go buy that wight now, with this.
I highly recommend this album for any true KISS fan out there. It's great to listen to, great to blast out of your car stereos louder than that damn rap crap. Go buy it now.

While not the first band to perform all-acoustic (Tesla did that) and not the first rock band to be backed by a symphony orchestra (Moody Blues did that), KISS has proven once again that they are not afraid to take chances and to go beyond the misconception that they are a novelty act or a glam band. These guys have sold more records than any other artist with the exception of the Beatles (from whom they admit they got their sound from), Rolling Stones, Elvis and the Grateful Dead. Out of them, only the Stones are still actively recording and touring. The rest have settled for repackaged hits, when surely they could have done better.
KISS does do better here, taking the hint from Metallica's S&M album, and from their own "Unplugged" album, where they had a small orchestra back them on a few tracks.
Bottom line: You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best. While not always the first to do things, they do it in the most memorable way. Just when you think that you have nothing to look forward to except a "Last KISS", the boys in leather and greasepaint come back to surpirse even their most hardcore fans. After all, who'da thunk it that "Rock and Roll All Night" would have an orchestral backing?

Here I am at the end of my Kiss reviews! My goal was to listen to and review every Kiss album before the release of Sonic Boom, and I have done that. Pat on the back for me. I did every live album and every greatest hits.

Kiss Alive IV - Kiss Symphony is a fantastic album, and is certainly better than Alive IV - The Millenium Concert. You see, back in 2001 Alive IV was announced and then cancelled. I even had a pre-order for it back then, and its picture is included in the Kiss box set. It was eventually released as the Millenium Concert in the Alive Box.

This is better. Way way better.

Some will accuse Kiss of copying Metallica. Well, Metallica copied Deep Purple: See their album Concerto For Group and Orchestra. Red Rider, whom have a Kiss connection, did their own concert with orchestra in the 80's. This is nothing new. Nothing in rock is new anymore.

Ace Frehley's not here. He decided to bow out after Kiss' "farewell" tour and who can blame him? Where you stand on Kiss continuing without him is up to you and I will respect that if you respect my own point of view. Tommy Thayer performs admirably and very Ace-like in his place. Peter Criss is here, keeping time remarkably well with an orchestra behind him. I don't know if he played to a click track or just to conductor David Campbell. I am sure this was a challenge to him and kudos to him for doing so well.

Kiss split the show into three sections: Full on live Kiss, then a section of slow songs with a small string section, and then the full-blown Kiss with the symphony. Great move there, and it allows for more variety on the album.

Highlights for me included "Sure Know Something" which might be better than the original version.

well when I saw this album it took me along time to figure out that I wanted it. I was a little skeptical because I didnt want kiss's hardest stuff getting messed up by a symphony. and I didnt want the album just having songs like forever and beth. so I didn't think it woud be that good. But i bought it and it was really good. On six songs thar are just good old kiss songs and then the melbourne ensemble came out and did softies like beth, forever and shandi. then the whole orchestra came out strong with detroit rock city and surged on with love gun,god of thunder ,black diamond shout it out loud, do you love me, I was made for loving you, rock n roll all night and some more songs and the symphony was rockin' it out with the kiss classics and it was cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
