Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Kiss Unmasked was the group's first album since Destroyer to not go platinum, and it's easy to see why. Driven by pedestrian riffs and melodies, none of the songs are memorable, and the group sounds uninspired throughout the record. Peter Criss left during the recording of the album; session drummer Anton Fig completed the record after Criss' departure. The change in drummers isn't evident in the music, but what the music does make clear is that it was time for Kiss to change their act.

    Unmasked? Cover it up and plug Your Ears

    This album was such a dissapointment. As a vetren Kiss fan from the early 70's (and after the shock of the disco beat of the Dynysty album) I would have prefered my lifelong idols to have tossed all these recordings in the trash. It is simply the worst Kiss album, right next to Animalize. It would be better if you began repurchasing Kiss albums from Creatures of the Night, where the band gets back on track.

    Is this Kiss or The Bay City Rollers?

    This album is fun, but not very good. ''Is that You'' would've been a Kiss anthem had it appeared on ''Love Gun'', or ''Rock & Roll over''. This album is full of nonsense; ''She's so European'', & what the heck is this ''Torpedo Girl'' anyway? ''Two sides of the coin'' is a good one, but this release is basically lame.
