Dynasty

Performers Kiss

Mercury | January 1, 1990 | Compact Disc

Dynasty is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Kiss: Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley (vocals, guitar); Gene Simmons (vocals, bass); Peter Criss (vocals, drums).
Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Record Plant, New York, New York. Includes liner notes by Robert V. Conte.
For many of the faithful, DYNASTY marks a turning point in the Kiss story. Their first release after the members' solo albums, it was their last outing with drummer Peter Criss (he was on the cover of UNMASKED, but not the tracks within), and Ace Frehley's departure wasn't far off. DYNASTY is an album of some bombast, with slick production, the inevitable nod to disco ("I Was Made For Loving You"), a Stones cover ("2000 Man") and plenty of their trademark hard rock/pop hybrid.
Definitely a softer take on the Kiss sound, this was a harbinger of what the '80s would hold for the band--a more radio-friendly style. With the catchy echoing chorus of "Charisma" and the wistful strut of "Magic Touch," Kiss evolved past the Neanderthal stomp of yesteryear and into a new age of slick, sophisticated, and ultimately more lucrative pop mastery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When The KISS music died in 1979 it was over! Dynasty proved when things went pretty bad to wrong disagreements. Because when drummer Peter Criss and bass guitarist Ace Freley broke up together by spliting from KISS. Criss was in a car vehicle accident and Freley had his weird relationship with the band and to Criss. They played a few tracks on the albums CD. Then they were replaced by one extra additional new band member playing drums name unknown? My two favorite songs only are I Was Made For Lovin' You and Sure Know Something .
