Fan review of JIGOKU-RETSUDEN CD:
New Japanese KISS Album is a KILLER!
I've been listening to it all morning. What a relief! I was excited about this release but it could have gone sooo wrong...but...it's great!
First impressions, cool Krameresque production, great drumming, great singing, and some tracks (I Was Made For Lovin' You, Forever, Heavens On Fire, Shout It Out Loud, Do You Love Me and Hotter Than Hell) are actually a notch above the original versions! Amazing but true!!
The lead vocals on Forever are (for me) even better than the original and the new production on I Was Made For Lovin' is crisper, and more rocked up. I wish Sure Know Something and Magic Touch could've been redone as well, but you can't have everything.
Gene's vocals are superb and Eric Singer sounds great on the backing vocals and on his lead vocals on Black Diamond.
Best of all the recordings are cohesive and have a consistent 'band' personality, Tommy, Eric, Paul and Gene are so tight!
