So how does this one match up, well the '78 disc is still his best but this is easily the most consistent and enjoyable solo album since then,the good points from his previous disc ANOMALY have been carried forward with this one,its all the better for it.
All the Ace'isms that we've come to expect are there in spades,he's not a great singer,lyrics are goofy but some of his guitar playin' is superb.
Highlights - easy the title track and 'Past the Milky Way' are classic Ace while 'Inside the Vortex' might just be one of the best tracks he ever produced.
Others such as 'Gimme A Feelin' just struts along while 'I Wanna Hold You' and 'What Every Girl Wants' remind me of Ace circa the UNMASKED era.
Naturally we get an instrumental 'Starship' quality once again and of course a cover version,2 versions of 'The Joker' the extended version being the best,
Love the sound quality,sounds great,the packaging is excellent.although couldnt unfold the poster as it appears the folds are actually stuck together.
And who didnt have a smile at the inside cover with Ace's make up face on his t shirt,might have sold the rights,but you cant keep the man down. excellent release
The cover of "Joker", while very well executed might seem a bit out of place-or is it simply because I've heard the original so much that I'm fed up with it? I could have done without it.
The closing track (on the regular version) is another one of Ace's trademark instrumentals, although there is no reference to "Fractured Mirror" in the title ("Starship"), this is clearly another eposide of the mirror's adventures, and one of the best to boot!
Great to have the Space Invader back.
As it is, I don't think his "solo" Kiss album was as good as his song writing in Kiss up until that point suggested that he could be, but it was still undoubtedly very strong. Then we have a number of proper solo albums in the early 80's/90's that are on par with the quality of those other former Kiss members; Vinnie Vincent and Peter Criss....i.e drivel.
However sobriety has been kind to Ace and in 2008 he released the exceptional album "Anomaly". Good songs, great sound, excellent guitar playing and overall, finally something rendering on credible....I still play it frequently.
And so...5 years on and we have Space Invader...Ken Kelly (Destroyer artwork) packaged and all...
Space Invader is another fine, fine record on the whole. Ace is a great guitar player and has finally built upon the great sound of Anomaly with a harder edge that compliments his strengths and weaknesses and is undoubtedly Ace Frehley. Layered guitars and double tracked voice make a potent wall of sound and when he does hit on a great song, such as "Gimmie a Feelin" or "Past the Milky Way", then the legend is almost justified.
The Space (Ace) themes can at times wear a little thin, and whoever at his record label suggested the cover of The Joker should be fired. Ill advised to say the least and the low point of the album.
As a Kiss fan of 35 years, I have no desire to see Ace back in the band...Read more ›

Every thing I expected from the ex Kiss man. Great riff's catchy and punchy. His vocals perhaps are a tad weak but on the whole a great CD.Published 13 months ago by David Corringham
