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"
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.Read more ›

This is where it all went down hill from medicore rock to just plain bad where Kiss as they still do to this day follow any trend of music thats popular.Published 8 months ago by Deimos
Sounds great on my turntable. Which is odd because the final mix of the\is album was never great primarily due to the "barely there" bass. Read morePublished on July 31 2014 by Javie
I've always had a soft spot for this album. While far from the band's best, UNMASKED is still a worthy addition to the catalogue, if only for the beautiful "Shandi" and the catchy... Read morePublished on Feb. 20 2010 by LP Quagmire
No, this is not a classic sounding Kiss album but it actually holds up nicely after 30 yrs. Outside of some of the synthesizers (yes synthesizers) the recording is really hard to... Read morePublished on Dec 19 2009 by Darryl Brueckner
