Situation;KISS has been very succesfull in the 70s as the decade was ending disco was `it`and they decided to make a disco record `dynasty`wich did good on charts and the single `i was made for loving you` disco fans loved it but fans of KISS`s rock n roll roots hated it.Now a new decade comes and `Unmasked`their second disco album arrives see below for my rewiew.

Thats right rock n roll icon KISS went disco a decision fans boed but think about it,just because they try something different it doesnt mean it sucks.Yeah me too i would have liked another rock album but i like this album they actually do disco pretty well,so if you are ready to accept that they try new things and actually give it a chance you might like it.

I am a die-hard KISS fan and i like their good AND bad times and i think Unmasked is a good album that deserves a listen.People might think im crazy but i like this album and for some reasons,Ace has 3 songs here and on Dynasty wich are what saved the records.But there are some bad factors such as Peter Criss departure wich caused problems to the band and strugle for the beggening of the decade.

Songs;Ace did a nice 3 songs contribution in `talk to me` `two sides of the coin` and `torpedo girl` whom are all good.I like the disco/pop ballad `Shandi` who was a big hit in Australia and song like `what makes the world go round`are good despite disco.I like the song `is that you?`Its surprising that KISS made me like like something that i didnt like originaly.

The cover/name issues;The weird comic book cover for the album is interresting,the name of the record says `unmasked` but we would have to wait another 3 years to see them unmasked for the first time.

Kiss' Unmasked was recorded in 1980. After the release of "Dynasty", Peter Criss had left the band even though he was still on the cover. Kiss began to expierence inner turmoil after the song "Beth" was released in 1976. Peter Criss's head got too big and he forgot what he really was, a drummer.
The solo albums are a good indication of a band falling apart.
Peter had told his bandmates he wanted to go solo and leave Kiss. Gene and Paul begged him not to leave and they suggested that they all do solo albums just to make him happy and keep him in the band.
When "Dynasty" was about to be recorded Peter again threw an ultimatum at Gene and Paul and said he would leave the band again if they didn't use Vinnie Poncia (Peter's solo album producer) to produce the album. Gene and Paul let Peter have his way.
Peter left the band after the "Dynasty" world tour and Kiss was left to pick up the pieces.
"Unmasked" is a very strange record for Kiss. The sound is very poppy, very radio friendly.
Some of the songs on it are good, but they just don't have that Kiss sound like "Hotter Than Hell" or "Rock and Roll Over".
I am a huge Kiss fan. I love Kiss, but when all is said and done and rock and roll history is written, "Unmasked" will not be remembered as one of their best. If you love Kiss, buy this album. If you want a good Kiss album let me suggest "Alive" or "Destroyer"

1980's KISS Unmasked (they still had make up on) was the first KISS album to not feature any contribution from the "Catman" Peter Criss. Criss was in the process of leaving the group since their previous album, 1979's Dynasty (Criss only worked on the track "Dirty Livin"). The drummer for the remaining 8 tracks of Dynasty is the same for all of Unmasked, Anton Fig. Fig maybe best known for being the drummer for David Letterman, but he also worked on Ace Frehley's 1978 solo album and later as a member of Frehley's Comet. Unmasked gets a bad rap due in most part because of it's radio friendly sound, which shouldn't be a total shock since Dynasty featured a few similar moments ("Sure know something" and their big disco hit "I was made for loving you"). Many credit Ringo Starr producer Vini Poncia for steering KISS into the more pop sound. Poncia, ironically, came from Peter Criss' recommendation after producing and sharing writing credits on Criss' "very friendly" 1978 KISS solo album. Unmasked would be the last time they would work with Poncia as producer. As for the music on Unmasked, there are several great riffs and the recording sounds very good (easily KISS' most polished up until now). Many fans were discouraged by KISS' dabbles in pop mainstream ("Shandi" maybe the most poppy here), but it was no different than when "Beth" was released in 1976, of course that was on the same record as "God of Thunder"! Still Unmasked is no throwaway, there really isn't a weak song on the album and there's a total of 3 Ace Frehley penned and sung tracks! ("Talk to me", "Two sides of the coin", & "Torpedo Girl") I've always thought Ace was a strong influence in the band and it's obvious he got more album time on Dynasty and Unmasked because his '78 solo album was the highest seller of the four.Read more ›
