    Well, I don't like the title, and the cover is okay I guess, but the MUSIC, is WAYYY better than I had anticipated!!!
    It DOES in fact sound like classic KISS!! I'm pretty stoked now, as I didn't know what to expect with this album.

    Here's the FULL TRACK of Modern Day Delilah!! It hits radio today!!:hyper: SCROLL DOWN A BIT

  2. OK, I pretty much hate Kiss, but credit to them for a decent throwback style song and a [email protected] cover.
     
  3. Meh. Craptastic, IMO. Not a big fan, but I know they've sounded better than that. Overproduced, and the drums are horrible.

    I saw them live in '75. I really didn't dig all the costume stuff then and still don't. The music was just ok, imo. Everyone else in the arena was freakin' out on them though. Different strokes.

    I used to be a Kiss fan. The song is crap and the album cover is crap too.

    Nice throwback cover. Other than that, Kiss hasn't been relavent musically in many years. Doubt this album will change that.

    Exclusively at Wal-Mart too. That's a way to sell records. Figured Gene would want it EVERYWHERE!!

    I kinda like it, and the cover is cool. And yes, I'm a Kiss fan, and I like Gene Simmons. And I'm not afraid to admit it.

    So there.:spit::D

    I wasn't a KISS fan back when they first came out, but I've become more flexible in my music listening preferences and like them now. I even bought "The Very Best of KISS" cd set. :cool:

    Then again, I like John Denver and Juice Newton too! :bassist::D:bag:

    If it's only sold at walmart, it only deserves to be sold at walmart.

    Why is it so exciting that an old band can actually get it together enough to sound like themselves?

    it's like seeing them put the makeup BACK ON in '96....weird at first, but kinda grows on you. they are like Brett Favre in that they just can't walk away. keep on trying for that huge success one more time. the title sucks though. at least 'rock n roll over' was clever. and thayer and singer look ******** dressed up like ace n peter. why not just make your own characters for god's sake. Kiss USED to take chances. it's pretty darn calculated.

  18. You can add me to that list and make it three. What, you only want folks opinions if they're positive? Gee, sorry.

    Look, I had every Kiss album up to Unmasked, at one time. I just call 'em like I see 'em, and crap is crap. It's CRAP. :rollno: :eyebrow:

    Well, I think the cover's crap, but the song isn't too bad IMHO. And no, I don't mind negative opinions, ut to say the SONG sucks?? I could unerstand the cover, because it most definitely DOES suck. ALL music has MUSICAL VALUE, hence the term "MUSIC".:rolleyes:
