KISS Mixtape

I love KISS but I have a hard time listening to their studio albums properly because I know them all by heart. Don’t get me wrong, I still love albums like HOTTER THAN HELL, DESTROYER and CREATURES OF THE NIGHT, I just need to mix it up a little bit. Usually I put the headphones on and press <Shuffle> on the MP3 player but I decided on a new playlist: pick my favorite song off each album! I left off live albums and greatest hits records except for Side 4 of ALIVE II, KILLERS and the 2 new tunes on SMASHES THRASHES & HITS. So here’s my KISS favorites playlist (song-album-year), you’re going to see some obvious classics but there should be a few deep tracks in there:

  1. Good idea. I understand what you mean by having to mix it up a little bit. I made two autoplaylists for my Zune creatively named Behind the Mask and Unmasked. Obviously, the music is divided between the make-up and non make-up eras of the band. I also bought KISS Ikons for pretty much the same reason. Plus I thought the idea and the packaging were really cool for a compilation. I purchased it online for just over 18 dollars. Not bad.
    Also, an off topic recommendation, Lions Share – Dark Hours. I think you will like it.
