Rooted in the campy theatrics of Alice Cooper and the sleazy hard rock of glam rockers the New York Dolls, Kiss became a favorite of American teenagers in the ’70s. Most kids were infatuated with the look of Kiss, not their music. Decked out in outrageously flamboyant costumes and makeup, the band fashioned a captivating stage show featuring dry ice, smoke bombs, elaborate lighting, blood spitting, and fire breathing that captured the imaginations of thousands of kids. But Kiss’ music shouldn’t be dismissed it was a commercially potent mix of anthemic, fist-pounding hard rock driven by sleek hooks and ballads powered by loud guitars, cloying melodies, and sweeping strings. It was a sound that laid the groundwork for both arena rock and the pop-metal that dominated rock in the late ’80s.

Talk about a mis-leading title! Judging by the title alone, You Wanted the Best, You Got the Best sounds like it would be the definitive Kiss retrospective, or at least an enjoyable collection of hits. But it’s not it’s a rip-off album, pure and simple. It doesn’t matter that the majority of the tracks are live recordings of their best-known songs, because Kiss always sounded better live than they did in the studio and these versions which were taken from Alive and Alive II are definitive. It’s the fact that the release is baited with the live, unreleased “Room Service,” “Take Me,” “Let Me Know,” and “Two Timer,” and the rest of the disc is padded with an absurd, 17-minute interview with the four original bandmembers conducted with Jay Leno. There is simply no reason for this to exist dedicated fans would prefer a full, unreleased live album or an interview disc, while casual fans would be better served by the original Alive album if they’re about to purchase their first Kiss record. With this album, you may have wanted the best, but you didn’t get it you just got exploited.

After a 12-year hiatus, the Norwegian duo returns with an especially airbrushed take on easy-listening pop. At their best, the Kings sound deceptively effortless, but the facade is sometimes too smooth.
