KISS: The Top 13 albums of the Makeup Years 

This is where KISS began changing its sound to keep up with pop trends. Exhibit A and B: “I Was Made For Loving You” and “Sure Know Something” are flat out disco. They aren’t terrible, but would have definitely freaked out fans of its earlier work. Ace’s cover of the Rolling Stone “2,000 Man” is pretty cool and provides some much needed rock credibility to this collection. Interestingly, this is the only album where Ace sings more lead vocals than Gene. Other redeemable moments are Ace’s “Save Your Love” and Gene’s “X-Ray Eyes”. Overall though, Dynasty reeks of a band having an identity crisis.
