Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are two great songwriters. I have a multitude of respect for both of them. There is a Kiss formula that is attached to all the songs they recorded - some years writers got away with more - but overall the criteria is the same. Paul Stanley writes with this formula very, very well. If you'll notice - more of his songs became hits than any of the other writers in the band. However, he can go beyond this formula. And he did on his solo album. THIS is why Paul is such a great writer - he injects the right hooks and melodies into the songs and then Kiss tampers with them enough to make them hard rock. Paul Stanley is a pop writer. And he's best that way. One listen to his solo album and you'll hear that he took it seriously - this wasn't a gimmick - it was a Paul Stanley album (I'm not so sure the other three had this attitude - especially <shudder> Gene). There are several highlights on the record. Tracks like "Wouldn't You Like to Know Me", "It's Alright" and "Goodbye" are the songs that could be found on a Kiss album. Tracks like "Tonight You Belong to Me", "Hold Me, Touch Me", and "Take Me Away" are songs that wouldn't have made the "cut". They are also the strongest songs in the set. "Hold Me, Touch Me" was the single from the album, and it doesn't surprise me one bit that it didn't chart. Not with the Kiss name attached to it...it was ignored. But it's arguably one of the best pop ballads to come out of the decade. Topped off with a melodic, moving guitar solo by Paul, the song really is a pop music masterpiece. I would never want Paul to leave Kiss because I love the band so much and he is an integral part of it, but I also know that Paul has great attributes beyond Kiss - as a slick producer, a distinct vocalist, impressive guitarist (his acoustic work on the album is extraordinary)...and most of all, as a writer. What a great album.

This album alone proves that much of Kiss' driving force, aside from Simmons' signature Kiss classics (and the tongue), comes from Stanley. His powerful, soulful voice and his memorable riffs have long been Kiss' staple, and his devotion to the craft have made him Kiss' long-standing frontman. Every track on this solo album is exellent and full of full-fledged rock. The ballad "Hold Me, Touch Me", a minor hit in 1978, also shows his depth, and the opening track, "Tonight You Belong to Me", shows his creativity and uniqueness when it comes to structure. Altogether, this is the best of the solo albums and one of the better Kiss albums.

Listening to this album makes me somewhat depressed knowing it's Paul's only solo album. KISS has its amusements, but I enjoy that Paul Stanley's songs are mostly from the heart than the groin. This album, for me at least, has a very lonely feel to it. Ain't Quite Right reminds me of Tea For One by Led Zeppelin, also a depressing song, but cathartic. At least listen to a few of the audio clips provided.

In 1978 rock group KISS then at the top of their popularity did something that surprised many. The band members each released their own studio album on the exact same day which has never been done since or before. Each member did their own musical thing as they wished. The record company, Cassablanca, released the albums each with the KISS logo on the top left corner and the albums were named quite simply after each individual member: Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, each member with a different color (Red, purple, blue and green respectively). Paul Stanley's first solo album sounds a lot like KISS but that's only because he IS KISS. Not to take away from Gene or any other member but with this album Paul proved was that he was the one who was the main creative and driving force behind the phenomenon that is KISS. Yet even the album bares a lot of resemblance with KISS it's also different , here Paul was given the opportunity to do what he pleased and sing about subjects or stuff he wanted to sing about. Stanley's album does not disappoint and the man showed a lot of passion with songs like "Tonight You Belong To Me" and there are some really good moments here. Interestingly enough Paul co-produced and this would not be the last time he did so and produced later KISS albums.

"Tonight You Belong To Me" is the first and possibly best song off the album. The soft opening that leads to a monster of a song does a nice job of preparing the listener for the terrific song that this is. "Move On" features excellent lyrics and is one of the best song here, simple cool riff and catchy chorus."Ain't Quite Right" and "Wouldn't You Like To Me" are two overall softer song but they're not ballads, both end up being good and catchy.

Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons were generally the primary songwriters of Kiss. Honestly though to a non Kiss Army member such as myself I didn't really know much about Paul's musical ability until this album. In the liner notes for this CD it's made clear that while Paul made this album,as all the others very much to stand apart from what Kiss did that it was one of those albums that had the effect of sounding the most like the band. One part of that is,aside from Carmine Appice on drums any well known session players were kept out of this project,with Paul concentrating primarily on his songwriting and guitar playing than anything else. And you'd be surprised how much this paid off.

In terms of being to write anthemic,emotional rock n roll hooks on both electric and acoustic guitar Paul Stanley is in a class of his own. Three of the best songs on this album are ballads such as "Ain't Quite Right","Take Me Away (Together As One)" and "Hold Me,Touch Me" are actually three of the most gorgeously crafted songs I've ever heard done in 70's rock outside some of the solo Beatle material. The piano and electric/acoustic guitar interaction is wonderful,as is Paul's vocal interpretation. But if it's hard rock that does it for you,he lets go screaming it right out of the box as he did with Kiss on "Move On","It's Alright" and "Love In Chains". Again the pace is somewhat slower than Kiss of that period might've taken it. And even a bit more no frills. But both the rockers and the ballads have the same effect.

This is likely one of the most well rounded and defined on the 1978 Kiss solo albums,not to mention again the most familiar.
