Ace Frehley (Frehley's Comet) 1987





My Original Reveiw

Quote
When Ace left KISS, I had been anticipating the release of his solo venture. Seemed to take years for it to happen. And when it finally dropped, I wasn't disappointed at all. From the first single "Rock Soldiers". One of the coolest drum intros ever. I was hooked. This was a completely different sounding Ace, guitar-wise that is. It was more current, in line with the day's shredders of that year.

My only thing I had to get my head around was the inclusion of Tod Howarth. I couldn't understand why this dude was getting to sing on the record at the time. Ace wanted a band, and not to be viewed as a "solo" record. Overall it's just a kick ass record.

But this has one of the weirdest songs I had ever heard: "Dolls". The video is pre-album version and really can't compare to the final version on the record. If you ever get the chance, check it out. It's a trip.

As he did on his KISS Solo record, he continues with his all instrumental song "Fractured Too", which is so far from either record sonically, and oh so cool.

Updated Review

Whenever I listen to this one, it instantly takes me back to 1987. So many great albums came out that year that it was overload to me. And Frehley's Comet was one of my favorites that year. Love this one a lot. Ace didn't disappoint me when it finally came out. He had left the band back in 1982 and he still kept his identity hidden from the rest of the world till this finally came out.

So, I couldn't wait to see his first music video for Into The Night, where I would FINALLY get to see what he looked like. It was definitely a head trip, more so than seeing the other guys because the wait was much longer.

Fave Songs: Rock Soldiers, Into The Night, We Got Your Rock, Love Me Right, Dolls and Fractured Too

Album cover was and is meh. Nothing groundbreaking here.
