Though it was recorded on the tour following the band's strongest album in a decade (Revenge), Alive III in no way measures up to its legendary live predecessors. In fact, only hardcore Kiss fanatics will need to hear updated versions of "Detroit Rock City," "Deuce," and "Rock and Roll All Nite," or throwaway renditions of rare '80s highlights such as "Lick It Up" and "Heaven's on Fire." An excellent version of the band's disco hit "I Was Made for Lovin' You" aside, the few highlights include "Domino," "I Still Love You," and "I Love It Loud." Ironically, this album did mark the end of an era for Kiss, which resurrected its classic lineup and makeup for a hugely successful tour soon after.
