KISS the Religion?

As you may or may not know, I am a closet KISS fan. Just something that brings back my childhood. Although, don't worry I do recognize that KISS is not exactly the upper echelon of musicianship. They are just easy, mindless and entertaining.

So today they have a new album coming out with new music. There is a big get up at WalMarts for this release. I happened to be at a WalMart in Linden, NJ and caught a glimpse.

Well, truthfully it wasn't all that impressive. There were KISS M&Ms, KISS Potato Heads, t-shirt, halloween masks, blankets, etc..
But it was kind of a mess and still being put on display. However, the best of all was what the new KISS album was labelled under. Either they've changed their musical style or Gene Simmons has succeeded in creating a religion out of KISS.
