KISS - Rock the Nation Live DVD Review
Submitted By Caroline Walsh on
KISS - Rock the Nation Live DVD
Released: December 2005 (Image Entertainment)
The painted performers are back, alive, and well! After the success of their 2003 Alive IV CD and DVD, KISS releases another live DVD in time for Christmas of 2005 called "Rock the Nation."
The "Rock the Nation" tour was the 2004 Summer tour with opening act Poison. The tour took the legendary rock 'n' roll band across the United States as they performed their greatest hits of all time. This DVD is perhaps the best compilation of their greatest songs ever performed live on that tour.
Yes, this disc has some songs from every generation of KISS. It isn't juts the 70's, 80's, or 90's... It's a little bit of everything! Here's the song lists...
"Lick It Up"
"Tears Are Falling"
"Got To Choose"
"I Love It Loud"
"Love Her All I Can"
"I Want You"
"Shout It Out Loud"
"I Was Made For Lovin' You"
"Detroit Rock City"
"God Gave Rock & Roll to You II"
"Rock and Roll All Nite"
There are very strong live performances on this disc where the band proves they are talented musicians. And, Paul proves he still has one of the best voices in rock 'n' roll. To most KISS fans, that wasn't in question at any point in history. To the KISS critics, this should shut them up.
There are theatrics on the disc as well. For example, Gene does his flight during "Unholy" and does all the tricks such as breathe fire and spit blood. Paul gets to fly during "Love Gun" much like on Alive IV.
Also on the disc, the band takes you behind the scenes and explains their pre-performance preparations and even talk about their anti-drug stance on the road. They also show you a little glimpse at whom does what in terms of the packaging of the band.
One of the funniest things on the disc is Eric Singer. Eric tries to give Gene Simmons a lap dance and Paul calls him "Cat Boy." I'm sure that will piss off Peter Criss. If I were his wife, I'd run away if he watches this DVD!
Overall, it's good. It's not quite as good as Alive IV but it is still a very cool DVD for KISS fans. Now, how about hitting the studio and releasing a new album? It's been 8 years!
