Tokyo Tapes...better cover, better album. It was more live than ALIVE (In the Studio).

Tokyo Tapes is indeed a WAY better live album, I go with it. Plus the fact that Rudolph on the cover is proving he is one crazy German!

Tokyo Tapes. Alive is okay, but too staged. It would not have taken much to find a really good live picture of KISS.

Agreed that Scorps are more natural on that cover, but despite the posed effect of Alive, it IS an iconic image, to go back to our other discussion at WLOAC

Ray-That's an opinion. I prefer "Dressed to kill" as far as covers go. When it came out that much of Alive wasn't really live I think it tarnished how some people view it. I think that it could even effect how people view the cover. I know it does for me because I see the cover and immediately think "fake" even though there are decent aspects to the cover. However KISS are a band who at times rely more on nostalgia than talent for people to actually have good memories of them.
