Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album has a Bayesian average rating of 69.6/100, a mean average of 69.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 23.5.

Definitely an improvement over any studio KISS I've been subjected to.

It's an alright live album. Absolutely loved it 35 years ago. When I listen to it now though I find it has a bit of a dated sound. Still good, just not worthy of all the accolades it receives.

Live album with an amazing set list considering they only had 3 studio albums to draw from. It rocks hard from start to finish.

One of the very best ‘live’ albums of all time, Alive! catapulted the band into superstardom. I’ve been listening to this for many years and it still sounds fresh and exciting. A must for any Kiss fan, and/or any hard rock fan.

Good live album. I like the guitar work here over the studio versions of the songs. In other words, Kiss rocks harder in their live albums.

The first record I ever bought...I have never bought a better one. Simply perfect and powerful. Did they touch it up in the studio? Unless you want to claim they invented the idea its irrelevant. Almost all live records are. The song selection pulled almost all the best tracks from the first three records and made them all even better. A rarity still in these days. This record justifies all the fame and fortune that came after it.

A fun rock/metal classic. Obviously, alive, has a load of overdubs, but is still Kiss at their best. All the classics are here; deuce, strutter, black diamond, and, rock and roll all nite. It's just a great rock'n'roll album.

For what it's worth, this is a timeless live album. One of the most important live albums ever. Not as good as Live at Leeds or Live After Death, but it's a lot of fun, and as influential as anything in the Kiss (k)atalog.
