Lots of reviewers like to throw their credentials out there as they review this release, so I figured that's a good way to start as well:

1) I am as hard-core a Kiss fan as they come, having joined the ranks of the Kiss Army in 1976 upon the release of "Destroyer."

2) I am a professional musician, having earned a PhD in composition as well as being a percussionist.

There! Now that that's out of the way, my opinion shouldn't matter any more than anyone ELSE'S out there. Because ultimately, you'll decide on your own whether on not you think "One For All" is a worthwhile CD. As far as I'm concerned, I think this is a touching and honest release from Peter, perhaps the most codified collection of songs he's ever released. A few particulars:

1) Peter's singing: he's not all over the place in terms of intonation...far from it. I think Peter has a good ear, and his vocal performance is solid and heartfelt. Sometimes the timbre of Peter's voice is a little flat, without any of the interesting throatiness of Paul or the growling quality of Gene. And, much of the time he sings from his throat, which can make him sound strained in higher registers. But he really explores his low voice on the album, especially on the great Sondheim cover "Send in the Clowns." If you accuse Peter of being out of tune, you need to level the same accusation at singers from John Lennon to Janis Joplin.

2) Peter's drumming: I've never understood complaints about Peter's drumming, from other fans or from Gene. Look, if Pete needed someone to pound a cardboard box to keep him on-tempo during the recording of "Rock & Roll Over," then how could he play all those concerts WITHOUT that?

There are quite a few folks who don't like this album. To that I say, Good! Music these days stinks bad. It all sounds the same. It's all made cookie-cutter and it's freaking boring. Since there are some who will compare Peter's effort to Gene's and Paul's, I will only briefly. Paul writes the same tired, frayed tunes he always does. Gene, well, Gene is quite possibly the worst song writer to come down the pike since, well, me. :)

Peter wrote what he liked, sang the way he sings and released and album that is not something you will find anywhere else. You will know it's Peter Criss.

When I first heard the snipits, I was like, what the heck is that? But I waited. I don't want to get disappointed until I heard the whole thing.

When the CD arrived, I put it in the CD player and slapped on the headphones to give it an honest listen. After three listens I was hooked. Why? Because it's honest. It's real. It's not over produced like his last release was, like Stanley's or Simmon's. It's the real Peter Criss there, not a computer. That's why I like it.

I grew up in the 70's when stuff was real and there was no such thing as protools. So no matter if the pitch is perfect, or the lyrics don't meet your standards, it's from the heart, it's real and it's honest. Britney Spears could learn a thing or two here.

I haven't stopped listening to it. The songs stick in my head and I can't get them out. They're catchy tunes and quality tunes. I'm glad I bought this album. Peter captures an era here that has long since passed. I'm glad he did.

He's coming out with two more, so this is only the first. As I understand it, we'll here rock and swing! Can you imagine that? What we here from the others? The same old tired stuff.

Singing completely out of tune .... any wondering why the album is a flop. I really have to wonder about this guys sanity. Sounds like it was recorded in someones bathroom on a Tascam. The vocals are terrible. Is he drunk? Seriously ... wow. This is bad. This is like a really bad demo tape from a 40 year old used car salesman who decided to make a record one night with no previous training or experience. Called some neighbors over who could pay intruments but were not really familiar with the tunes .. or maybe just showed up for the session fee and tried not to laugh? My god .... this is just bad. Cant get over how out of tune the vocal are. Its really really bad.

This seems like a far more genuine set of tunes from Peter than Cat #1's rock stance ever provided but does it mean its better well frankly yes and no. But there are some nice moments and one great moment. Lyrically clumsy and tone wise often head scratch-ingly askew it does have what perhaps was last displayed on Peter's first post Kiss release "Out of Control" a sense of 'screw you I'll do what makes me happy' and for this I say good for you. For the uninitiated Peter's blues and R&B leanings are not going to be a big draw, the 'Beth' brigade may feel let down by the quality of the ballads and the 'Baby Driver' metal crowd are going to be horrified by the non rocked-ness, but you know what I quite like it (at times). So what works well is "Last Night" which is a tender ballad over acoustic guitar and the cover of "Send In The Clowns". Both are genuine and have that realism that the other more up beat material seems to lack. "Don't Get Better Than This" is heartfelt but not too great lyrically "Falling All Over Again" with its country twinge is quite nice but lacks a a hook, "Whisper" reminds me a little of 'First Day In The Rain' from 'Let Me Rock You' with an almost Mac like 'Albatross' sense to it. I think I will appreciate this more from a few more listens. "Memories" is also kinda sweet in intent but a little under constructed. Outside of that group the rest is a less than stellar. Honest and from the heart, ambitious or just plain bad on the first few spins I am not really sure, I guess time will tell?
