A Different Boom Boom Pow: Todd Leibowitz Reviews Kiss first album of new material this millinium

Contributing Writer Todd Leibowtiz rocks out to Kiss’ Sonic Boom

Ok, I finally received the new KISS cd from For $12 you get the new cd titled Sonic Boom plus 15 re-recorded KISS classics and DVD of a live concert from Buenos Aires. Great Stuff.

First off, the new album is awesome. No ballads…just hard nosed rock songs with a lot of guitar solos and awesome vocals. “Modern Day Delilah”  is the first single and it’s  a great one. It is the only one from the new album that the band is currently performing live. This cd was produced entirely by Paul Stanley himself and I feel that he did a great job. Both Gene and Paul trade vocals on each song. There is one song titled “Stand” in which both of them trade harmonies. This song is about the friendship of both men. They sing this song beautifully. The main two guys even let both the amazing guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer have lead vocals on a song. Thayer and Singer have great voices and could probably record a whole album by themselves. So, I have to say that I truly love this new album. Too bad, I missed them on tour when they played last week at Nassau and MSG.

The 2nd cd of re-recorded KISS classics is really good too. From songs like “Detroit Rock City”  to “Love Gun”, I feel that they nailed it. I guess they wanted to show the world that Thayer and Singer can play the songs of old KISS too; and Not just from the original KISS lineup, but from the 80s/90s line up as well when the play “Heavens on Fire”  and  “Foreve”..

The DVD is typical KISS at its best….LIVE. You wanted the best, you got the best….KISS.

So, go buy the CD/DVD set. It is only $12 either directly from Walmart or online at I guess Gene is not making too much on this complication. Haha.

I cant say anything but great things about SONIC BOOM!

Til next time…Rock on!
