Kiss 'Rock and Roll Over', 'Dynasty' and 'Unmasked'

Dynasty and Unmasked are my "most returned to" KISS period these days.

Two really great and very underrated albums, and chocked to the brim with really great songs.
File under Pop Rock, but don't let that put anybody off.

Interesting that the band dismiss this period as a low in their career.

They protest far too much.

I also have much love for the "Vini Poncia" period. Some brilliant, hookladen and melodic pop-rock that would be praised to high heavens had it been by another band. Yes, it's a shame they themselves are dismissive of it, though "I Was Made For Lovin You" has been in the live set for awhile now. Presumably cos it was a pretty big hit worldwide. And they did "Shandi" and "A World Without Heroes" on that Unplugged album so it seems they haven't totally forsaken some of this stuff.

That said, I'm still enjoying the fuck out of the OTTness of 'Monster'. It makes me grin like a loon when I'm in the mood for it!
