Best song on DYNASTY?

Post by Mr Slow » Sat May 23, 2020 3:09 pm

Just like UNMASKED a few days ago, DYNASTY also had a birthday. Believe it or not, it’s now 41 years old. WOW! :shock:

What’s the best song on this record?

Dirty Livin’, but the guitar solo from Save Your Love makes it a close second.

Sure Know Something gets my vote. It’s objectively the best written song in the album. Great melody, catchy chorus and outstanding vocal performance. I think this song the perfect bridge between 70’s and 80’s KISS.

Magic Touch, Dirty Livin' and Sure Know Something.

If I could lose one song it's the pointless 2,000 Man cover.

Sure Know Something for me as well.

Love X-Ray Eyes, too.

Very underrated track, almost a companion piece to Naked City.

IWMFLY is a masterpiece and one of the best known Kiss songs in many places, rightfully so.

Dynasty, its production shortcomings notwithstanding, is another Klinic in high-quality, original, creative songwriting.

Songwriting, people! ...Songwriting. That has always been the key. Even most famous artists can barely do it.

And Charisma is my all-time favorite KISS song. Probably.

I love this album...dunno why it get such a Bad disco rap. I went with Sure Know Something, but love Hard Times, 2000 Man, X-ray eyes, IWMFLY, and always loved Charisma

Of course this was my first show, one of my first albums and I was one of those kindergartners in the crowd so it’s special to me.

I think there are only really 2 songs that could be considered to have disco elements. I Was Made For Loving You and Dirty Livin’. Sure Know Something and Magic Touch are certainly a lot different in style from the previous studio record (LOVE GUN) but seem a logical progression from Paul’s solo record. Ace’s 3 and Gene’s 2 are pretty typical for KISS.

DYNASTY is definitely a more mature album than their first 6. There is more depth to the songwriting and the playing has new levels of sophistication. It’s a pretty complete album too, with all 4 guys getting to sing. I agree that it gets a bad rap for being a disco record. It’s so much more than that. It’s a good quality KISS album.
