Paul Stanley
One Live Kiss (DVD)
December 2008
Released: 2008, Universal Music
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

Kiss main man Paul Stanley released his outstanding solo album LIVE TO WIN back in 2006 and immediately went out on tour to support it. ONE LIVE KISS captures that tour during its stop at Chicago’s House of Blues.

The very first thing you will notice about this concert DVD is that it is very stripped down compared to what we are used to seeing from Paul when he is in Kiss. Gone is the massive huge arena, the gigantic production, the light show… It is in a more intimate setting that you really appreciate his music more so than the spectacle. Paul and the ‘Rock Star House Band’ cover all the bases by playing selections from the latest album, the ’78 Kiss solo LP as well as a few Kiss ones. Paul’s voice is in great form on the DVD and he appears to be allot more relaxed and comfortable in this setting and being closer to the fans. His between song banter is still a bit cheesy and slightly laughable at times but we have come to expect that as he always had his own way of introducing the songs. It really doesn’t matter much as the quality of the show outweighs this tenfold.

After watching this DVD several times it is easy to see that Paul is the musical talent in Kiss and without him the band wouldn’t be able to survive. Sure they have Gene the marketing machine but without the music there is nothing. This is definitely one of the best live concert DVD’s you could get this year.
