"Where to begin. For 27 years now I've loved KISS. Old and new, well most of the new that is, I love KISS. As for this DVD, the best thing about it is that it's 2 videos in 1!
As for the contents. 1st off, X-Tream Close up. Why on earth did KISS release 3/4 of the video in "excerpt" form? This video would have been great if the full versions of the videos were on there. It would be nice to have a professional copy of their great moments in KISSTORY without the "excerpt" versions. The Brazil show of '82 was a rare show with Vinnie and his makeup days. And why all the same concert clips, Detroit '75, New York '77 and Japan '78? All the official realeses contain footage from the same shows, just more footage. Give us something Ebay hasn't seen yet.
Then there is Konfidential. Again, the old Detroit '76 footage, Winterland show. Guys, pull out some skelatons we haven't seen yet. I know it's out there. The Gene goatee days are just par.
It's a good DVD overall but the "excerpts" will drive you crazy. No bonus footage or anything. A nice video compilation would really be great, and Gene it would sell too. $$
C'mon and pull out the vintage stuff guys, were dyin' here for some new "old" stuff."
Great KISS Footage! (4.5 stars)

"This KISS DVD is an excellent purchase for the typical KISS fan. It features 2 discs, and exclusive live footage as well as some of their best music videos in the Xtreme Close-up.
The only notable flaw is that at times the quality isn't perfect in some of the live concert footage.
However, this doesn't take away from some of the classic live performances from KISS featured with and without the makeup. We also get to see Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley give their thoughts on the group and what direction it was going in.
Live Performances of: Deuce, Nothin' to lose, Heaven's on fire, 100,000 years and others.
Musics Videos: Sure know something, Hard Luck Woman and Lick it up.
Overall, this DVD belongs in any KISS fans' collection and you can buy at a bargain price here on AMAZON. So check it out.
Overall, this is a great, must-buy DVD for a KISS fan."

"The dressing room "scene" with Simmons and Singer is worth the price of the tape! Classic KISS! A Definite Must Have for any KISS Fan! Highly Recommend!"

"First off...Konfidential & Extreme Close Up are on the same disc.
So this disc is quite a bargain!
when you put the disk in, the menu comes up with a Revenge/Animalize line up in silhouette .
you can chose between the two features.Konfidental has its own song track listing
Extreme Close Up does not. so if you want to navigate the disk it's skip through track by track.The sound on these is really great , the Alive 3 footage is kind of grainy, as was the video tape konfidential, but what is odd is that the older/classic footage looks better than the alive 3
film, im not sure if it is a stylistic choice, or if some one fell asleep at the wheel.The Disk looks to be a straight up transfer from the Video Cassette releases, but if you haven't been playing your tapes,
because of their fragility, this is a suitable upgrade.
be warned ,,, as i said these are pretty much the tape transfered from masters just to dvd.
No special features at all... a shame.
A bigger shame is that there is No legitimate release of any of these titles on dvd in the USA.Gene, you really are missing this.... I probably wont buy too many KISS bowling Balls,
But I would probably join a Kiss DVD of the month club.... The sound is an upgrade over the video tape. at least to my ears.
and these disk are region free!, so they are able to play
in the USA! as far as Amazon.com/canada.
Great job, I placed the order on Nov 27 2004 they gave me an estimate for delivery at about jan 9th...
It was shipped on Nov 30 2004,
thankfully it arrived today! So two big thumbs up for Amazon...I finally got these on dvd, now Im a happy camper!
after I look at the other disk I will let you know if I have any thoughts on the KISS My A** dvd"
