Kiss – Symphony—Alive IV

Glam rock titans with strings attached

Trending Now

Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons’ tireless pursuit of the almighty dollar makes Kiss a hard band to love, but they are responsible for some of the most joyously stoopid pop-metal ever recorded, and let’s face it, they know how to put on a show. This live outing is split into three acts, the first being six tracks of straight-ahead live Kiss action, the second comprising an acoustic set accompanied by a string ensemble, and the third featuring band and full Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in high-volume congress.

This latter is most effective, as they plough through most of ’76’s bubblegum classic, Destroyer, including “King Of The Night Time World” and the titanic “God Of Thunder”.
