The critics panned it. Most Kiss fans hated it. And few bought it. But in terms of artistry and ambition, there has never been a Kiss album to equal it, before or since.
Blackwell and Dark Light , all of which were co-written with rock legend Lou Reed. Where Stanley and Frehley took the route-one approach to their solo albums, Simmons went completely off-piste. The album featured Criss on the cover, but was recorded with drummer Anton Fig. By the time Unmasked was released in May , Criss was out of the band. Timing is everything.
And in the same year, Kiss put out a disco song. Parent album Dynasty reached the Top Tonight You Belong To Me is a sensational song with an intense emotional charge — rated by Stanley as one of his best. But on two tracks, he pushed the envelope. But with former Black Sabbath drummer Eric Singer in place of Carr, and producer Bob Ezrin back for a third time, Revenge was a shrewd repositioning of Kiss at a time when grunge was king.
It had been 11 years since Kiss had made a new studio record, and Paul Stanley was determined that they should come back with a bang. Guitarist Tommy Thayer made his debut on Sonic Boom. He even sang lead on one track, as did Eric Singer. And Simmons was back to his best on the sneering Russian Roulette. Beginning in , the new-look Kiss achieved a remarkable comeback. Having already used the perfect title for this album — Unmasked — they named it Lick It Up after a song that was classically Kiss.
Guitarist Vinnie Vincent would be fired after the Lick It Up tour, but the album sold well — proof Kiss could survive on their music alone. The second Kiss album was, like the first one, a flop. Hotter Than Hell peaked at No. It was also the last Kiss album to feature the full original line-up on every track. But on Love Gun , they still sounded tight. On Shock Me , Frehley sings lead for the first time, sounding effortlessly cool — or maybe just pissed.
With its smooth funk vibe and killer chorus, Sure Know Something is high-class Kiss and a clear indication of the myriad sounds and influences that have always made Kiss a unique proposition. I was reading all kinds of space and time continuance stuff, and it was all swirling around my head. Beginning with Paul Stanley yodelling, this is one of the great Kiss songs of the 80s.
Its status as a band favourite is illustrated by fact it's one of only a few of the bands' non-makeup era songs to have been performed live after the band returned to painting their faces.
