Review of Kiss – Kiss 40 (Universal Music Canada)

KissThere is an almost endless line of Kiss hits compilations but none are quite as comprehensive as Kiss 40. Included are tried and true hits like “Rock and Roll All Nite”, “Beth” and “I Love It Loud” in addition to three previously unreleased live tracks along with a 1977 demo of the song “Reputation”. The collection goes right up to the band’s last studio record (2012’s decent outing Monster) but also includes on track from each of their respective solo albums. Kiss 40 is a little more than a run-of-the-mill hits collection and is sure to please long-time fans by colouring a little outside of the typical “hits” package lines.
