Good sounding reissue but no quality control whatsoever. I had to return three copies before getting one without pressing and/or handling issues.

Good clean sound on this pressing. It’s quite nice, though quite different from the original pressing. There is an attack and a natural breakup that occurs on the first pressing of the record that is completely absent here, and only on the first US pressing.

So it is what it is. The best available source of this record, but quite honestly it pales in comparison to the original US pressing. It’s clearly cut from digital masters, which isn’t all too surprising for a number of reasons, the least of which is most of the original analog recordings of KISS are long gone. The most common of which is it’s easier and 99.9% of people who have heard this album never heard the original pressing do have no idea what’s missing.

This is the longest review of vinyl I’ve ever done for Discogs, but it’s also the most important one. The pressing is great, and sounds wonderful. But the punch of the original is nowhere to be found here, which is a huge disappointment, whether most people are aware of it or not.

Also a little strange and of note is that the music takes up far less space on this record than on the original. Over an inch. I’m doing back to back comparisons right now and the original destroys this in every possible way.

This release sounds great, like the other comments. It’s definitely bang for the buck.

Great sounding reissue, all things considered. A lot of texture and separation, while revealing, actually contributes to the raw, innocent KISS, when they genuinely rocked.

I have to agree with the previous comment, great sound on this release, interesting enough, the mp3 voucher is in 320 kbps and seems to be taken from the vinyl mix, not the cd mix from 1997 (that I own too) which, as far as I know, was the latest remaster done at the time of the release of this LP. I'm not good with Kiss trivia so anyone having better info is more than welcome.

If you are looking for "a better sounding KISS album" off of the reissues 2014 this is the one to get.

Very rich - and I am not the only one saying this.
