Its kind of obvious....... although gene did write some killers e.g unholy, child hoods end, and journey of a thousand years, paul just has the consistancy to write good songs and always has done, i mean i dont care what anyone says about the psycho circus album but pauls songs on there are just cool............. raise your glasses rocks along with i pledge allegence and many others, on COS i will be there, jungle and rain are stand out tracks for me and on revenge well not so good but i just wanna is just a cool song and everytime i look at you is a great ballad, as well as consistancy he shows great range in writing ideas lol welll im just rambling bye!

I haven't listen to a lot of their later releases but without a doubt, 8/10 times, Paul always writes better songs than Gene, (only my opinion though).

Although Gene's '90's songs showed a huge improvement over the garbage he spewed throughout most of the '80's, overall, the edge has to go to Paul, who is just more talented a songwriter and almost always hits the mark.

Both of them turned in some fine tunes, though. "Journey of 1000 Years" stands as one of the finest songs in the history of the band.

Journey of 1000 years is not one of my favs but it is well written and does show what Gene is capable of.

Paul will always have the edge

Have to admit, Journey Of 1000 Years is one of my favourites from that album. That and Dreamin' which is also underrated.

Definately Paul, although Gene has improved somewhat, i still think Paul outshines him. *-)

I think it'll be interesting to see how 'Live to win' stacks up against 'A**hole' when it comes out.... *-) $-) :?:

Agreed, although my love for 'Dreamin' has diminished slightly since realising it is an obvious rip of 'I'm Eighteen' by Alice Cooper...

Well, the similarity in the main riff was pretty obvious upon first listen....but I never thought it was similar enough to warrant a lawsuit. As "The Daily Show" commented at the time, if you put 100 monkeys in a room with a guitar, eventually one of them will write "I'm Eighteen".

And I don't mean that as an insult to Alice, I'm a huge fan....but it ain't exactly a complicated riff.
