Almost Human is so damn awesome. I don't know why it never "made it" as a big KISS tune. To my knowledge, they've only played hints of it acoustically and have never done a proper version of it live. It would sound perfect tuned down like they seem to be doing now.

Had it been treated as some sort of "side project" instead, maybe with a new & different band name, perhaps fans would have thought better of it?

Indeed. A departure from the norm is always interesting, but when is a departure a departure too far?

Topic for discussion:

At this point, should they drop the makeup? Gene will be 70 in a couple of years and Paul isn't far behind. How old is too old for the makeup?

Regarding The Elder,i think it may have been more successful as a concept album if they`d done it properly,lyrics,story etc included in the packaging instead of the very sparse package we got.Maybe if they`d incorporated  the band characters into the story?

So, you don't care for the non-makeup years?

At this rate, it's pointless to take the make-up off again... as long as they keep touring, they might as well stick with the face paint and the costumes.

Consider: KISS have now been around for 44 years, and the make-up-free period only accounts for about 13!

Yeah. I was  thinking about that the other day. It's been 20 years since the reunion.

Keep the make-up.

Second issue of KISS (Dynamite) is out this week.

Brian,i didn`t say i don`t like the non make-up Kiss,i just think definitive Kiss is Kiss in make-up! Plus as you say,they are getting old,but in make-up they look ageless!

Kiss was the first band I really got into. I was 10, or almost, when Destroyer came out, and I was hooked from there. I'm not really sure how it all came about. I guess just one of those things I picked up from friends, as they were the hot thing in 1976! I still remember buying Alive II a bit later and the tattoos that came with the album. I cracked my head right after I bought that album and had at least one of the tattoos on when I was taken to the ER! I never saw them in concert back then, but did see them three times on the Farewell tour in 1996-97.

I hear that a lot from KISS fans. It applies to me, too.

We were just drawn to it like moths to a flame (perhaps). ;-)
