Recensioner i media

"...gets into the nitty gritty detail that a card-carrying member of the KISS Army can appreciate...what makes Popoffs writing a bit refreshingly different here is that he seems to give voice to many varied and common opinions of fans about both the high and low points of KISStory." * Houston Press * "All the important stand out moments are covered here, making this a welcoming engagement for KISS fans to see how one of their own, found in Martin Popoff, offers explanations, and gets critical in his case studies." * Spill Magazine * "I would be remiss not to discuss how gorgeous this book wanted the best, you got the best. Popoff and Motorbooks combine forces for a fine tribute to the hottest band in the land." * *
