    "Live to Win" is a winner! Paul's voice in top form, staying away from the rock'n roll trappings many of our heroes fell prey to. Still, Paul is not one to sit on laurels, his contributions in KISS as co-founder/ singer/songwriter/rythm guitar player who occasionally rips into a solo from time to time, it's what he does on his own that makes everything he's done over the years sound grand in huge porportions catchy but rocking. Yet with only ten tracks, Paul knows how to work it by leaving you salivating for more. "Live to Win" is a heavy contender for every thing played on the mainstream radio. For all you die-hard KISS Army fans, you need to run out and add this your collection, a must have!!

    The guy can still rock, with or without his KISS bandmates.

    Sometimes a rocker doesn't need ear-piercing tunes and shrieking lyrics to prove that he or she still has backbone, and Paul proves this point clearly with Live to Win. Though there are only ten tracks on this album that are no longer than three or four minutes apiece, each one has been painstakingly articulated and performed to perfectly blend polish and class with the same kind of quiet yet profound intensity that constituted some of the best (and frequently most underrated) rock songs of the not-too-distant 1980s and '90s. Granted, the title track is my personal favorite here, but Bulletproof also has a nice rocking beat to it, as does It's Not Me. Similarly, Second to None is an excellent radio-worthy ballad that shouldn't be overlooked by any means, which I can also happily say for Loving You Without You. In fact, the only really issue I have with this album overall is that I only wish Paul would have put another two to three more songs on it. Then again, if quality over quantity is your thing, then there's really nothing to complain about.<BR/><BR/>This is definitely a superior album, and KISS fans owe it to themselves to check it out.
