Funniest thing I’ve heard all year, and perhaps my favorite download ever: People, Let Me Get This Off My Chest, 70 tracks of Paul Stanley’s onstage banter from assorted Kiss concerts.

Now, I’ve been a Kiss fan for a long time, and I still love the songs I grew up listening to. But a big turning point for me was paying attention to Paul’s chatter on “Alive III,” where I realized just how much he reminded me of Kevin Cronin. It’s been downhill from there. This is the final, glorious, undeniably terrific nail in the coffin. ( has a few tracks posted.)
