Following a massively successful reunion tour in 1996-1997, Kiss takes the next logical step and commits itself to celluloid. The movie in which the band appears, DETROIT ROCK CITY, focuses on a group of eager teenagers trying to get into a sold-out Kiss concert in 1978. The soundtrack from the movie is an excellent collection of tunes from that era and includes offerings from a number of contemporary artists who pay homage to their '70s heroes.
Everclear contributes a rousing version of "The Boys Are Back In Town," altered by a couple of breaks that put the band's stamp on it; Pantera kicks out the heavy metal jams on Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever"; Marilyn Manson works up an angry, techno version of "Highway To Hell"; and The Donnas, self admitted Kiss nuts, offer a respectable and near-identical version of "Strutter." The Kiss Army's hunger is appeased with a new track by the band, "Nothing Can Keep Me From You," a beautiful Diane Warren-penned ballad complete with orchestra. If you're a Kiss fan, '70s rock enthusiast or just want a fun party album, pick up the DETROIT ROCK CITY soundtrack and get Kissed.
