Just sitting here going through some stuff and came across these and just was wondering what people thought. I like Lick It Up alot and Hot In The Shade also. But I think Revenge was the best since I feel it went back to hard Kiss. The others to me just had scattered good songs and bad songs.

 

Just wondering what others thought?

 

Ok you can go back to what you were doing. :D

I'll go with "Lick It Up"...for me, this was the best thing they did out from under the make-up. "Lick It Up", "All Hell's Breaking Loose","And on the 8th Day","Exciter", and "Not For the Innocent" all RAWK! Their "Crazy Nights" release would be second for me I s'pose..... :banger:

I liked some of Crazy Nights but it had too many keyboards for me for Kiss. Plus I didn't like Ron Nevison producing it. I thought Lick It Up did have some great tunes on it. I guess it would be my second favorite. Actually on Crazy Nights I still remember cutting school that day just to go and buy it.

I side with the majority (judging from the poll results) on this one...the best KISS sans makeup album is "Revenge," with "Hot in the Shade" a close runner-up. "Revenge" is just such a classic...how can you go wrong with the CD that has the monster metal anthem "Unholy" on it? Not only do I consider "Revenge" the best non-makeup KISS album, I consider is the best KISS album, period! :banger:

 

OK, I'm going back to what I was doing now. :) As always, just my two cents' worth.

 

Keep the faith.

Anything they did after removing the make up is better than the make up days!

Carr & Kulick were far superior to Criss & Frehley!

 

I wouldn't say far superior in great songs. Even though they did have some great songs after make-up. But yes Carr and Kulick were 100 times better musically! But then these two always made the old songs sound better.

Point One

Great musicians do not necessarily mean better songs.

 

Point Two

Bruce Kulick may have been more technically proficient, but he is a cookie cutter guitarist. Nothing is unique. Ace Frehley has a distinctive sound, even if part of that sound is missed notes and pentatonic scales.

 

Point Three

Peter Criss gets knocked for being a crappy drummer, but he created some very interesting beats that were actually integral parts of some songs. Listen to "Detroit Rock City" and "Goin' Blind".

 

Point Four

KISS with make-up was cool. KISS without make-up was just like every other lite metal band in the 80s.

 

 

BTW, I picked Crazy Nights which I like just slightly better than Revenge. But my faves are still the 70s albums...

Today it's Crazy Nights, but I like all of their non make-up stuff. Revenge is very good too. I like non make-up better than the make-up days. And Bruce is the best guitarplayer Kiss had. They should get rid of Tommy Thayer, get back Bruce take that make-up off and kick ass. I think that Kiss today is a very sad attempt to relive the glory days

Point five:

Only America gave a damn about them (with some interest in Australia & Japan) when they wore make-up, but when they took it off they gained a massive world wide audience!

Crazy Nights is probably their biggest selling album worldwide!

Your 'Point Five' is not true......

 

KISS were HUGE in Japan and Australia when they had makeup. Where'd you get that notion from, Captain?

Check their album sales in the 70s for Germany, Canada, Australia, Japan and England and I'll bet you'll be surprised. I guarantee they sold more albums than Boxcar Willy and Zamfir combined! :headbanger:

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
