Kissin' Dynamite: Money Sex & Power
Kissin' Dynamite - Money Sex & Power Review

Kissin' Dynamite: Money Sex & Power

Melodic Hard Rock/Metal
4.0/5.0

Kissin' Dynamite works all the Eighties angles: melodic hard rock with a side of glam and sleaze and a bit metal edge. And check out the photo below. Boffo big coiffure.

Kissin' Dynamite: 1987 glam redux.

While possibly not as sensational as the marvelous Addicted to Metal, Money Sex & Power certainly follows the same path. Kissin' Dynamite is quite good at combining melody and hook with their edgier, metalish, melodic hard rock. Actually, this disc may lean more on the rock groove than previously.

Most times it works positively perfect as on Club 27, I Will Be King, Operation Supernova, or Sleaze Deluxe. Sometimes not so much, as on Sex Is War or She's A Killer, but even these songs ring true to KD' signature formula. Then some songs titles just make you scratch your head like Dinosaurs Are Still Alive and Ego-Shooter. Musically, these are some heavy hitters, but what they're talking about I'm not quite sure. Perhaps the most interesting song is the closer, Six Feet Under, a very classy and catchy rock number where Kissin' Dynamite knocks down the heaviness for acoustic guitars.

Overall, Kissin' Dynamite's Money Sex & Power is a worthy follow up to their previous success, and shows a talented band maturing as they follow their musical path. Recommended.
