Kiss Kissology Vol. 2 1978 — 1991
Like the first volume, Kissology Vol. 2 is primarily for soldiers in the Kiss Army, but there is something here that will appeal to any fans of dreadfully embarrassing B movies. Finally the band have unlocked the vault that kept Attack of the Phantoms (aka Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park) hidden from the public since a brief VHS run in the early ’80s. This amusement park-set made-for-TV movie alone (featured here in its European theatrical cut) is worth the price of the three-disc set, showcasing the band’s inability to act, an array of cheap set designs, a villain oozing corny monologues, hammy special effects and a hilarious battle with some spaced-out werewolves, as well as their own clones. It’s a camp classic that lives up to its bad reputation. Otherwise, Kissology offers more of the same but in their worst phases: countless interviews, concerts, videos and an MTV appearance that reveal the ugly faces underneath all that makeup. Plus: a CD of the Crazy Nights show from Budokan, Japan. (Vh1 Classics)
