Episode 80 - KISS - Unmasked

April 15th, 2017

I know we keep saying we're done with KISS, but we keep getting pulled back in. Join us when we at Iron-Cast go KISS Krazy once more as we delve into their 1980 release, "Unmasked". While the album quickly went Gold, it fell off the charts fast in the US but became a bit of a hit overseas. But what of this album? Is it pop-rock/powerpop gold or is it bland, toned-down pop designed not to offend the parents of the 7-year-olds who made up the majority of KISS' audience at the time? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments from episodes seventy-one to eighty.


Episode 34 - Guilty Pleasure Month, Part IV - Mr. Mister - Welcome to the Real World

May 27th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast closes out Guilty Pleasure Month, where we review an album that is a guilty pleasure of at least one of the co-hosts of Iron-Cast, with the most guilty pleasure of them all, Mr. Mister's 1985 release, "Welcome to the Real World". So, it's a guilty pleasure for at least one co-host, but what about the album itself? Is this album a piece of mid-80's power pop gold or is it a prime example why the mid-80's was the worst part of the decade? Tune in to find out.
