Kiss - Dynasty

Any thoughts on this album? I just downloaded it and really like it. It's funky and fun. I heard their fans hated it when it first dropped. Charisma is a really cool track.

You're not gonna find many KISS fans on the org....but I loved the "Dynasty" album. "Sure Know Something" and "Magic Touch" are good songs.."Dirty Livin" sounds like it could have been the theme for a late 70's police action show. The older diehards hated it but the young-uns who loved the merch and KISS movie liked it..My first rock concert too.

I have a friend who was a die hard Kiss fan. When I mentioned to him that I downloaded that album he laughed. He said that it's such a sellout album lol. I think it's funky in a way.

Yeah..It's got some groove to it. It fit right in to what Rod, The Stones and other rock bands were trying to cash in on.

Sure know something, I was made for loving you and Magic Touch are all great songs. The rest, while not as good, is still quite solid. Well, maybe the 2 Ace songs and the 1 Gene song fall a bit off, but still not bad. All in all a really enjoyable album.

I think it's a great album, but then again, I didn't get into Kiss until fairly recently. "Magic Touch" is my favorite, followed by "Hard Times" and "2,000 Man." The only song I don't like on the album is "Dirty Livin'."

2000 Man is good. I'm still getting to know the songs but I think the standout is Charisma. I was very surprised to read that Gene Simmons sings that one. Very funky.

True. It's KISS' disco album, though unlike Rod and the Stones, KISS hit on the disco phenomenon on its way down. They were at their height at the same time as disco. This was a way of trying to extend their commercial run.

That aside, it was one of the first albums I bought.

I think Dynasty is cool for what it is. Sure Know Something is probably my favorite and made me realize that if you take away all the stupid inneundo Paul (and $immon$ especially) are guilty of putting into their work, they're actually good songwriters, especially Stanley. Dirty Livin' is awesome too, even if Peter Criss is a total doucher. The Ace songs rock as well, but Ace Frehley is a total G.
