KISS (Alive III) 1993




Alive III suffers from the same things as before with the other two live albums...doctoring. Not only that, this "concert" isn't even from the same show. It's a collection of songs pulled from multiple shows. On top of that, one of the songs, I Was Made For Loving You, was recorded at a soundcheck with crowd noise added later. I had heard about this for years. But I had to check on Wiki to see if there was any mention of this. Sure enough, there is.  Also, some songs have been edited, case in point...I Just Wanna. The crowd participation of the song ends with "f*ck". But the band felt it necessary to edit that out and insert "fuh". I knew something wasn't right with this record based on that one song, because I went to the Revenge show and the crowd was very into it, singing along with the added "f*ck".

Alive III was taken from the Revenge Tour, so there's plenty of full concerts in their entirety that they have in their possession. But they chose to splice it all together and pass it off as one of the full concerts "as is". This deception needs to stop. To continually f*ck over fans that pay their hard earn cash is despicable on the part of both Gene and Paul. I get that they want to put out the best possible product to bolster their stage show credibility. But they are doing themselves more harm than good with the lies. Oh well....

As for the album itself. If you take the songs one by one and not as a "concert", the majority of them are ok. Nothing really stands out as jaw dropping. Average album at best. I prefer to watch the Revenge Tour live on DVD.
