I can't explain it, but for some reason I like the no make-up cheesy KISS better than the classic KISS. My hunch is that it has to do with my age. I was too young to really remember KISS in makeup and their mid-career resurgence was basically brought about thanks to MTV. The mere fact that MTV existed even gave the band a shot at a career without make-up. So, while Paul Stanley is completely mugging like a goofball for the camera without his Starchild pancake, I love it. I like the Asylum album in general. I know "Tears are Falling" wasn't a big hit, but then that's me: always liking what others loathe.
Do you think Paul still has those yellow gloves? I think my favorite part of the "Tears Are Falling" video are the giant shoulder pads. I mean, Gene Simmons looks like he's dressed for Friday night lights. Cue Paul: spirit fingers!
