Love how he blew Peter Criss shit for using co-writers, and then hooks up with Desmond Child, Diane Warren, Poncia, and several others over the course of the ’80s. After its release, Unmasked divided the critics and received both positive and negative reviews. Add to cart. Saved by Anthony Smith. And it is quite ironic of me to accuse someone else of going too far. When it came time to make the album, producer Vini Poncia was brought back in yet again to handle the boards and as a result, the toned down album of Dynasty saw the same thing here. Undoubtedly the first truly mediocre album released by Kiss (and believe me, there would be plenty in 1980-1998), "Unmasked" is a shamelessly bland and commercial new wave/power pop album that makes "Dynasty" sound like "Rock And Roll Over". But damn! Kiss played only one show in the US, at the Palladium with Carr. Then Ace is back with another classic song called “Two Sides of the Coin”, not to be confused with the podcast Three Sides of the Coin which took their name from this song.

It was the cover version done by The Hollies. I like going too far…it is fun! KISS UNMASKED Released on May 20, 1980 (Casablanca records) Review by Lance Lumley: By 1980, KISS had a major problem within the band. Ace Frehley‘s solo record produced a hit and became the breakout of the four solo attempts. Wilkening remarked that "Frehley manages to eclipse everyone by adding enough distorted guitars to bring together a sound comparable to the Rolling Stones in such outstanding subjects as 'Two Sides of the Coin,' 'Talk to Me,' and the wonderfully insane 'Torpedo Girl. The album sleeve for me was only a solid black sleeve with no pictures or anything on it as seen below. What is different about this album is it is the first Kiss album to include a co-write on almost every song (Ace’s being the exception). You just have to be on his good side I guess. A lip-synched German television performance of "Talk to Me" and "She's So European" featured the debut of Eric Carr, who became the band's permanent drummer until his death in 1991. At this point, I still thought Ace could do no wrong. “Easy as it Seems” is great. 1. When the song starts you immediately can tell, this doesn’t sound like Kiss. He is a tough nut to crack. During an interview on October 31, 1979 on the Tom Snyder Show, Ace was totally hammered and you could see the faces of Gene and Paul and they did not look altogether happy. It was the cover version done by The Hollies. The album marked the first time Kiss had used the contributions of outside songwriters to such a large extent, as all tracks except two of the Frehley contributions, "Talk to Me" and "Two Sides of the Coin", were written or co-written by someone outside the band. This is right back to the beginning of the album with another pure Pop song by Paul. I agree with the 3/5 score though, maybe even think it’s a tad generous. The band filmed a promotional video for "Shandi" with Criss. Poppy, sure. The final song on the first side is “What Makes the World Go Round” written by Paul and Vini. Produced exclusively by The Art of Victor Stabin. Some of the worlds are: Planet Earth, Under The Sea, Inventions, Seasons, Circus, Transports and Culinary Arts. With bands like AC/DC and Van Halen tearing up the charts, Kiss for some reason thought the pop market was where they needed to be. Just better. Kiss then toured Europe and Australia (where their popularity was at an all-time high) and played "Is That You? And I want the cover to be a cartoon that ends with 'They stink.' Are you looking for never-ending fun in this exciting logic-brain app? At least Dynasty still sounded like Kiss with only a couple exceptions. The album cover design returned to the comic book style that had last been used on "Love Gun." There was a promotional video done for the song and it does feature the last appearance of Peter Criss…that is until the MTV unplugged era in the 90’s. The cover, which is a comic strip of the band being chased by paparazzi trying to get a picture of them without their make-up, was done by artist Victor Stabin. That is the thing with Kiss, there is so much stuff that people like different things about them. Yes, some great stuff on here but weaker than anything prior. I think I’m he only one that doesn’t like Easy As It Seems. Meanwhile, in Europe and Oceania, Kiss maintained its popularity; Unmasked topped the charts in Norway and New Zealand, and reached the top 5 in Australia, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands. ", For his part, Matthew Wilkening of Ultimate Classic Rock had positive comments on the album, according to him "Unmasked is an underrated gem of power pop in the middle of a race in free fall." It is catchy, a little anthemic and sticks in your head. Ace’s bass smokes, man it’s so hot! Thanks a lot! Jason Josephes of Pitchfork Media wrote that until he did not hear it he could not discern "how bad he was" and that he preferred to remain in that ignorance for the rest of his life. It is too poppy and doesn’t fit his demon persona. ( Log Out / And yes, this is by Victor as well. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account.

It wasn’t the worst solo album ever made by a drummer – that was Keith Moon’s risible Two Sides Of The Moon. Howard [Marks] said, 'The name of the new album is 'Unmasked.' I liked the album then and I like it now, but after listening to the albums in a row like I’ve been doing, it is a good album, but I can see why it was received the way it was. So many great bands over the last 10+ years. Although Unmasked was certified gold shortly after its release in the U.S., it quickly fell off the charts. And let us not forget Peter during the Tour. It might be my favorite Paul song on the album. Nirvana released their gloriously dishevelled version of the track in 1990 on the Hard To Believe: A Kiss Covers Album just as they completed work on Nevermind – … Side 2 starts off with “Tomorrow” which was written also by Paul and Vini. It is actually quite a sad, insightful and observant viewpoint of the city. Unmasked, an Album by KISS. One of the more rocking songs and one of my favorites from the album. Love this album. The album marked the first time Kiss had used the contributions of outside songwriters to such a large extent, as all tracks except two of the Frehley contributions, "Talk to Me" and "Two Sides of the Coin", were written or co-written by someone outside the band.

The song is more of a pop/rock song and doesn’t have the full edge of the classic Kiss tunes, but it is smoking when it comes to overall tone, groove and Gene’s vocals. The album features substantial songwriting contributions from Vini Poncia, who had previously been Ringo Starr's post-Beatles songwriting partner. Another favorite song on the album is Gene’s “Naked City”. Now, I love Gene, but this song is So Awful. The song was written by Paul Stanley and Vini Poncia and was actually inspired by “4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)” by Bruce Springsteen, but not his version. Awesome. “Easy As It Seems” is the best song, and I got Mr. Harrison Kopp on my side with that one. Around this time I remember seeing them on Kids Are People Too… The host asked the audience at first who was their favorite member…the first kid answered Peter Criss…and someone answered Ace… they explained that Peter married the Coppertone lady.

I think this is what it came with which is kind of boring. Gene and Paul had had enough and so had Peter. You may withdraw your consent at any time. Though not a cover, it certainly isn’t a Kiss song either. Good times!! Two Sides of the Coin is also off the hook, melodically. Stepehen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic commented that none of the songs are memorable and that the group sounds uninspired throughout the album. Go do it.' Maybe they should’ve switched leads on it.

Outside writers were now leaving their mark with Kiss. And I’m right so that makes it even funner (is that a word??) Paul is very shy, and very reserved. Even without all original members (Anton on drums, Bob Kulick on guitar), it is still Kiss and it is still fantastic. In the band's authorized biography, the drummer revealed that he was the last one left in the band's dressing room after filming and broke down crying.

Fricke also noted that rock songs such as "She's So European", "Easy As It Seems" and "You're All That I Want" are "disappointingly boring" and that "the sterile production" of Vini Poncia left "in the background the guitars and the harrowing voices of yesteryear." Each world has more than 20 groups with 5 puzzles each. When 1980 rolls around, the band have to make a new album and this would become the first album without all four members of the band.
