From the very first album, Ace Frehley seemed to be the quiet one. The other members all sang while Ace remained mute. He also rarely surfaced as songwriter over the first five albums and it was only in his awesome guitar playing that fans got to hear his talents. Then in 1977 on the Love Gun album, Ace wrote, recorded and sang lead vocals on Shock Me. According to legend, he was so nervous he sang the track while lying down. He had nonetheless produced a rock classic, something he repeated with Rocket Ride on Alive II.

Despite all that, when the four members recorded solo albums in 1978, no one really expected much from Ace. He had written less than one albums worth of KISS' first few releases and so coming up with one all by himself must have seemed a daunting task. He surprised everyone with a fantastic album, and perhaps the best of the four.

The album opens with the frantic Rip it Out and the catchy Speedin' Back to My Baby before really hitting hard with the menacing Snowblind. Heavy in sound and attitude, the song is as good much of KISS finest. Ozone proves much slower but equally atmospheric and edgy before the tone is lightened with What's on you Mind. Then comes the albums big single (none of the other three members troubled the charts) with a cover of New York Grove. The song is softer, a bit pop rock in nature but extremely catchy and never seems to age. It became a signature tune for the New York Yankees, the only song to feature in KISS set list after 1979 and the only song from the four solo albums to make it onto one of KISS's many greatest hits albums. I'm in Need of Love and Wiped out return to the heavy style before you are really blown away by the last track.

When KISS decided to go on a brief hiatus in 1978 to record solo albums, few would have expected that Ace Frehley would come up with the best.
Starting with "Rip it Out", a barnstorming heavy rock opener, it soon becomes obvious that the Space Ace is a lot more than a mere lead guitarist. With its thunderous drums and brain shattering riffs, the song makes a bold opening statement. "Speedin' back to my Baby" is a more poppy song, harking back to the 50's and 60's, and shows Aces ability to write a catchy chorus. "Snowblind" and "Ozone" are both more unorthodox songs - heavy yet spacey and showing influences far beyond the average KISS album. "Ozone" even features a chorus reminiscient of a Monks Gregorian chant. With these two songs, Ace was clearly exploring the darker side of his hedonistic lifestyle.
"Whats on your mind?" is, in my humble opinion, Aces best crafted song, and once again shows how he can write catchy, melodic choruses. With a stuttering verse riff, and a gently spiralling chorus, this song is a worthy rival to even Paul Stanleys pop writing nous. "New York Groove" the only song not written by Ace, was a big hit and consists of a soulful, cod funk tune over which Ace half-talks and half-sings, and shows the diversity of his sound. "I'm in need of Love" and "Wiped Out" are both more haggard and wasted rock songs, similar to "Ozone" and "Snowblind", and giving proof to the argument that on this album Ace was trying to exorcise some of his demons in his haze of drug and alcohol addiction.
Closer "Fractured Mirror" is, in short, a beautiful song, an instrumental with many layers of instruments combined to create a melancholic end to an album that was arguably built around Aces drug usee, but nevertheless was a true classic and showed that Ace had true song writing ability and control that he never truly exercised while in KISS.

an album which confused gene and paul,they never saw it coming,nothing Ace had done before (or since) comes close to emulating this disc,this is one of the best albums of 1978 never mind the kiss catalog,from the kiss inspired rip it out to the stunning finale of fractured mirror this album takes the listener to another planet,wiped out/ozone/snowblind one classic after another,cant believe 30 years have elapsed and we're still waiting for this to be equalled by Ace, apart from the odd track his career has been in a black hole.

I still have all of the kiss albums in vinyl in a box in the garage, along with all the solo albums and a medley solo australian album and concert photos and programmes. I recently went down memory lane, looking at all my concert programmes that I could find, KISS included, an autographed Scorpion one, Iron Maiden, ACDC, the list goes on. My children are embarrassed when I start bopping round the kitchen to "my music" and I often get told to "turn it down mum!!"

My brother recently took me to see Kiss in concert again at Wembley (my husband wouldnt come). I'm now 47 and last was "in" to KISS when I was about 17-20yrs. However, it was such a fantastic show, bringing all the memories flooding back that I decided to buy a couple of the old albums on cd (as I no longer have a record player). Ace's was always the best and I love 8 out of the 9 tracks, most especially fractured mirror.

I am not being analytical about this album or any past KISS connections, I just really still enjoyed listening to it after all these years and would say that even if you are not sure about KISS or the make-up thing! For the ridiculously cheap price you can pick this up now, go for it and decide for yourself. Out of all four solo's - this is the one to start with.
