I can’t believe I am done going through all the disks in detail. It took 10 solid weeks to get through all 11 disks. I read the entire Vault Book and researched more details online. I dived into it like I have never done before for any release. It was time consuming and it was a total and utter blast.
And to keep the fun going, I thought I would compile what I found to be the 20 Best Songs in The Vault. There are a 164 songs in The Vault to go through. I know you get 166, but one song is in there twice (oops on someone’s part) and the Bob Dylan 15 minute track with Gene at a writing session doesn’t really count.
To determine the songs, I picked all the songs that scored a 4 or 5 and placed them in a playlist. That gave me around 60 songs to choose from. From there I thought, if the song is just a demo of a Kiss song or a Gene Simmons song that was actually released, I want to exclude those as well. In the end I think I started with about 30-34 songs.
