The four members of Kiss released solo albums on the same day in September 1978. Paul Stanley, a.k.a. Starchild, was the most Kiss-like of the four, sounding more like an official band release rather than a solo outing, says AllMusic.com.
But this wasn't necessarily a bad thing — Stanley, a seasoned hard rock songwriter, had penned some of Kiss' best material ("Love Gun," "Detroit Rock City," "I Want You,") and more. He wisely stuck to his winning formula on this solo record.
"With the help of studio musicians, as well as guitarist Bob Kulick (who was almost an original member of Kiss, and brother of future Kiss replacement guitarist Bruce Kulick) and Rod Stewart/Vanilla Fudge drummer Carmine Appice, Stanley's album is on par with Ace Frehley's as far as consistency is concerned. A couple of epic compositions (by Kiss standards) are highlights — 'Tonight You Belong to Me' and 'Take Me Away (Together as One)' — as are the more straightforward tracks 'Ain't Quite Right,' 'Wouldn't You Like to Know Me?,' 'It's Alright,' and 'Goodbye.'... Stanley's album is more or less what a new Kiss album released in 1978 would have sounded like." — AllMusic.com
