ACE FREHLEY – Space Invader (CD)
Upon first listen of Ace Frehley’s newest release “Space Invader” I was not blown away immediately, but upon a few more detailed spins, my ears were sold. This is his first new record in five years, and man, Ace has gone all out on this 12 tracker, with tons of emotion and rock and roll hooks that’ll turn the listener into a serious Ace Frehley addict.
It is the upbeat attitude, which the former Kiss lead guitarist has injected into this record that’ll make you, the listener jump with joy – it is definitely a feel good record. The fact that Frehley can still rock out after all these years of playing and writing quality music, speaks volumes here as “Space Invader” is a true testament in evolving as an overall musician.
“Space Invader”, “I Wanna Hold You”, “Change”, “What Every Girl Wants”, and “Past The Milky Way” are some of the catchy and confident-sounding songs you’ll find here. These tracks stood out for me the most, as this is something you’d probably hear on rock radio when you’re hauling ass to meet that important dinner date.
This is definitely one of the best solo albums written by Frehley and the one he will be known for for years to come. Check it out as it is destined to become a hit in due time. [Eone] Sarjoo Devani
