This album has been run roughshod over since the day it was released. Its critics lambaste it for not sounding like a KISS record, which isn't entirely true - many of the songs on this album have a similar feel to the group's cuts that feature Criss prominently, (think "Nothin' To Lose," and "Mainline"). Probably due to the (much-deserved) success of Beth, Criss has never been recognized as the fine r&b/soul vocalist he truly is, and more than any other member of the band, he went into the studio to produce the album he couldn't make within the confines of KISS. With a rasp somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Rod Stewart, Criss tempers the expected ballads with equal doses of rock and funk. Opener "I'm Gonna Love You" is a first-rate soul stomper, complete with punchy horns and Supremes-style back-ups. "Easy Thing" and "I Can't Stop the Rain" are big, epic love songs that Criss and his sandpaper lungs deliver beautifully, and his snappy version of "Tossin' & Turnin'" holds its own.
KISS were at the height of their popularity when the solo projects were released, and Criss could easily have stuck with the tried and true and been assured of strong sales. Daring to be different requires guts and should be commended, especially
when the end result is a fine album such as this.

The KISS solo albums provided an interesting look at how each band member's style came out apart from the band. For the Cat Man, Peter Criss, who didn't sing enough songs, this was the perfect opportunity for his feline self to emerge. His album is a mixture of soulful piano and brass rock and slow ballads. There's nothing here that rocks as hard as anything from the KISS to Love Gun albums. Most of the material is mid-paced to downright mellow. There's a lot of personality in Criss's raspy voice, which is really heartfelt in the ballad songs. He also steps away from the drums in half the songs.
"I'm Gonna Love You" sports piano, rock guitar, a brass section and some soulful backing vocals.
"You Matter To Me" with the Farfisa-like synthesizers, could be easily remixed into an old school disco tune.
Peter does a decent and rousing cover of the insomniac "Tossin' And Turnin'" with a pair of soulful female backup singers. Curious that this was the one track that KISS fans really liked.
The sad Elton Johnesque "Don't You let Me Down" is the first of four sad killer ballads. The second, my favourite song here, "Easy Thing," as in "Love is such an easy thing to lose," is backed by strings, and actually outdoes "Beth" in its heartfeltness. The lullaby-like "Kiss The Girl Goodbye" with lines as "Time for me to fly/I will be home some day/baby please wait for me" might be a sequel to "Beth." Some of the guitar work reminds me of Heart's "Dog & Butterfly.

Back when I was a young punk and only turned an ear to Paul Stanley's heavy distortion and ACE's wailing feedback, this record just didn't work for me and would have made a better pottery wheel than earn a spot on my record player.

Fast Forward 25 years later...

Now that I would consider myself a little more mature in my music appreciation and my ear is far more tuned in to musicianship, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt, this is a really good album. I love the fact that Peter completely went his own direction and showed more of his big band, jazz and soul roots. His voice is so sweet...however I can see where he was searching a little too hard for Beth II. I think there's one too many ballads on this record. Tracks 1-5 really rock out and I would say this album is worth it just for those songs alone.

I pride myself in finding older music that's really good and I would say that going back and giving this album another chance was worth every penny. I would love to see more music today come from the record labels like this!

The album of first KISS drummer is not bad. But as compared to solo albums created by other KISS members (Ace, Paul and Gene) the solo effort made by "Catman" is the least impressive. It is also the album which is completely different from what we could expect while listening to the hottest band in the world. The first two songs ("I'm gonna love you", "You matter to me" sound awkwardly and their style does not make us think of heavy metal at all. It is not rock n' roll either. The track number 3 - "Tossing and turning" is one of the best here. The tune is catchy but the guitar could be more active. The next song "Don't you let me down" is a beautiful ballad which may remind us of legendary "Beth" from DESTROYER. It is also amongst the best tracks we can hear. The fifth song "That's kind of sugar papalike" is pretty interesting as there are more guitar sounds involved in it. The sixth track called "Easy thing" is very sentimental due to romantic, emotional lyrics. It is about love and the risk of losing it. It is a nice song as well. The seventh track "Rock me baby" is not appropriate to its title. What we can hear is something which is unlike rock and roll or hard rock. Therefore it is a major disappointment. The song number 8 "Kiss the girl goodbye" is just beautiful lyrics but the instrumental content is rather boring and simple. The ninth track "Hooked on rock n' roll" is particularly concentrated on the rythm which makes this song monotonous and dull. The last but not least song ("I can't stop the rain") is another ballad which is comparable to "Easy thing". It is classic ballad, very nice and inspiring.
To end with, I think that every die-hard fan of KISS should buy that CD.
