Kiss. The biggest gimmick band in history. The face-paint, the fancy costumes, the huge stage show with smoking guitars, blood, fire, explosions. They had it all. Gimmicks as far as the eye could see. By 1980, people were growing tired of it. Perhaps their fans were starting to grow up too? In any event, their 1980 album Unmasked seems like a direct pitch at popularity. It's a pop record. Pure pop rock. But this is Metalstorm, right? It sure is - that's why I'm not going to be very kind.

Rating: 10 Confession... I love this album.. it's definately my favorite by Kiss by a long shot.... I've been listening to Judas Iscariot: To Embrace the Corpses Bleeding all day... but I could just have easily put this one on instead.... I guess it's the same as enjoying a bad movie... you appreciate the cheese factor of it... this is my cheesy movie!!!.... and probably will be until it kills me....

  Wow, 10 for this one? I dunno if i can give this rating to a/any Kiss album, not even to their classic 70s period albums, but after all tastes differ.

this one would get a 6.5.

Rating: 4 This is bubblegum pop rock that should appeal to children under the age of fifteen. Lyrics are woeful and the songs are simple, yet catchy. Of course, there is merit here - I think the song "Shandi" has some incredible vocal harmonies. But if I'm assessing this as an album on a site dedicated to METAL, then this gets a rating of 4 from me. I loved some of this stuff when it came out (I was seven-years-old) but today it doesn't get me going. I'll probably play it to my daughter when she's about five or six.

THANK YOU!! Except for the Shitty Shandi I agree with you finally. This is their worst make up era album. Even "Music from the Elder" has better songs.

Nothing wrong with a little debate. If we all had the same tastes would become so drab suicide rates would skyrocket lol
