Ace Frehley - Space Invader - Deluxe 14 Track Edition (2014)






Yes, I started listening to this back on August 19, 2014 and I'm just NOW getting to a review for Space Invader. But there is a method to my madness here and the time between then and now is definitely warranted. So, why the long delay? Well, after initially listening to the album for a good solid week back when the album first came out, I had to step away from the album as a whole because I just couldn't put my finger on what it was that was keeping me from embracing the album as I have done with all his other releases. Sure, the album has it's share of fillers, but that wasn't what was bothering me. It wasn't until day, listening to it from start to finish that my initial gripe (that I was uncertain of back then) came to the forefront as the main reason why it was grating on me at times. It's the way he album is mixed that is definitely the problem here. I don't know if it's my ears or the headphones, the EQ or what, but if you have ever dealt with your ears popping from high altitude or recovered from being sick and you couldn't hear right after the fact, that's how best to describe this mix. From song to song you are feeling like your underwater.

Like I said, it may be an issue with something on my end. But I did test a couple of other albums and songs and they sound fine. As for the songs on Space Invader, nothing has changed between then and now in regards to what I think are the best tracks. Those would be Gimme A Feelin', Change, Past the Milky Way and Starship. There is no doubt these are the best of the bunch. The playing and arrangement for each is great and ones that I would definitely come back for in the future for a quick hit of Frehley's vibe. The other songs have their moments, be it a solo, a riff or a lick. But as full songs, not really on par with his best and more iconic stuff.  I could listen to them here and there, but they don't do the album justice.  Worth a Rent from your local library for Hard Rock fans.
