Ace Frehley – Space Invader

Ace is back!

If you like huge 1970′s Les Paul guitars and punch to head solo’s then you will not be dissapointed! If you are looking for deep introspective lyrics…. ummm… really? It’s Ace Frehley dude.

Although I liked his last solo effrot Anomally it felt disjointed at times and even a little mean. Space Invader on the other hand is nothing but fun! Thankfully Gimmie A Feeling  the first single is the radio edit so there are no pointless curse words at the end. For me however track three I Wanna Hold You is my first listen fave however each and every song has something to offer in the first three KISS records way (with todays recording production of course!)

The only knock I have heard on the record is Ace’s cover of Steve Miller’s The Joker. Here’s my thing, the only reason to cover a hit song is if it has personal meaning to you and if you can put your own spin on it. Ace’s version of The Joker is cool… because I get it.

Clean production, monster guitars, Ace’s signature talk singing and straight ahead throwback rock and roll songwriting makes this the perfect end of the summer record!
