Paul Stanley
October 2003
Released: 1978, Mercury Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Lord of the Wasteland

PAUL STANLEY is the most Kiss-like of the four solo albums, probably because (DUH?!) Paul Stanley is the main songwriter and vocalist in Kiss. I've always felt that Paul Stanley has one of the best voices in rock and roll--and as the latest tours have shown, he's still got it!). The vocals on the album are excellent as usual and I really like all the acoustic guitars. It is for these reasons that Paul's album is my second favorite behind Ace's

“Tonight You Belong To Me”, “Love In Chains”, “Move On”, “It’s Alright”, “Wouldn't You Like To Know Me?”, and “Ain't Quite Right” are great songs with the catchy hooks that Paul always manages to nail. For all you saps, there are ballads aplenty here. “Hold Me Touch Me (Think of Me When We're Apart)” and “Ain't Quite Right” both have all the charm of a good Kiss weeper like “Beth” or “Forever”. The only songs that don't quite measure up to the rest are “Take Me Away (Together As One)” and “Goodbye”. They just aren't as grabbing as the rest of the material on PAUL STANLEY.

This album is a great Kiss substitute.
