It's not funny enough to be a parody and it's not good enough to stand on it's own.

I dig it. It may not be a great song per say, but it really does sound like something that got left off of Gene's '78 solo album

I can tell that a lot of effort went into this. Kudos 8)

It's not intended as a parody, it's a pastiche.

And as such, I find their work pretty impressive.

I will admit, I had to look up pastiche. I'd heard the word, but didn't really know what it meant.

When I said parody, I didn't mean it mockingly and don't see the word as being used mockingly.

The song in question, sounded like a Kiss leftover from Gene Simmons in the latter days of the 70's...that's not a good thing, but yes, it sounded just like that.

It 's not my favorite Klassik'78 song but it's pretty good.

I'm guessing if it were included in The Vault it would be heralded as a never-before heard gem (same goes for the other Klassik'78 "Gene" songs).

Double Virgo has certainly produced the one of the best Kiss covers in the history of humankind, but the two are playing in different leagues.

Making brilliant Kiss covers is one thing, and making brilliant Kiss pastiches is another.

They both excelled in their respective games.

Kudos to them both!

They 70s-ified that cover quite nicely.

I like it. The song names are better than real KISS song names.

They mime the sound of the Alive II side four ok I guess. But the songs I've heard aren't any good. Do we really want this? I think some fans are clinging too hard. Objectively this strives to be mediocre. They should get their own gig.
