"The critics have always been our enemy because of the self-appointed, self-anoited, houlier-than-thou approach they take. Even though they rarely have credentials, never went to school,never studied journalism and have no ethics, they have the point of view that their opinion is more important than ours. They are a bane to society, a completely worthless form of life as we know it on this planet." -Gene Simmons

Kiss - Unmasked
Relatively speaking this is not so bad pop rock. I bought this when it was new and I was a youngster. I pretty much thought it didn't stand up to their earlier stuff, and it doesn't, but compared to the stuff that came after this... it's not too bad. The songs are mostly kinda catchy. I think they're leaning more towards bands like Devo, Blondie,The Knack...really lightweight stuff, but bigger. By this time I had moved on to Van Halen, AC/DC, Judas Priest ect. A couple songs are dangerously close to reminding me of Disco. Some of the styles of guitar playing on here doesn't sound like Kiss at all...and it's probably not.
Paul gets to sing one of the best couple lines. "I feel you deep inside of me, Beating up against my heart"
