CD Review: The Spaceman Returns To Invade Your Mind With New Music

Ace Frehley, the newly inducted Rock N Roll Hall of Fame guitarist, will be releasing his sixth solo album entitled "Space Invader" on August 19th through eOne Music. This is his first album on a new label and follows his comeback release "Anomaly" which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Album chart upon its release back in 2009.
The new twelve-song release showcases some of Ace's hardest rocking songs in over two decades, beginning with "Space Invader." The song feels as if Ace has a chip on his shoulder as the song's rhythm rocks your core as the chorus gets lodged into your memory. Also, his guitar playing still amazes as he injects a shot of adrenaline into the first single "Gimmie A Feelin'." The heavy rhythm of "Toys," allows Ace to display his showmanship and gets your heart pumping, before slowing down the pace for the classic, Kiss solo album appeal of "Immortal Pleasures." His guitar takes center stage on the "in your face" feel of "Past The Milky Way," while Ace's cover of Steve Miller's "The Joker" is a bit bluesier than what we are used to from Ace Frehley, but still fun and enjoyable to listen to. As with almost every Ace Frehley solo album, it closes with an instrumental, this one taking you on a seven-minute journey to the "Starship."
