Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the former Kiss guitarist, his first 'solo' album in nearly 20 years! Flaunting fiery riffs, pristine production by Marty Fredrickson and jaw-dropping craftsmanship, Anomaly ties together the axeman's trailblazing past, present and future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anomaly Rocks!! September 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have to say that I never expected such a great album from Ace, especially not at this point in his career... but this album is FANTASTIC! Ace has gone into musical areas that he's never covered before & Genghis Khan alone is more than worth getting this CD for. I think it's the best tune he's ever written but I also love Fox on the Run, Change the World, It's a Great Life & Fractured Quantum.

I doubt Ace is ever going to bring in too may new fans at this late point in his career so if you're a fan I would HIGHLY recomend not listening to the bad reviews that I find to be ill-informed & completely out of touch with what Ace has produced here. The songwriting is surprisingly good & VERY different for the Spaceman & while there are some "Frehley's Comet" style tunes here (Foxy & Free, Pain in the Neck & Sister) that style is a big part of Ace's repetoire & you either like it or you don't. But the new direction he's taken on Genghis Khan, A Little Below the Angels, Change the World & It's a Great Life are HUGE musical shifts for Ace & sound like NOTHING he's ever done before.

I've been a KISS fan since 1974 & while I'm not too thrilled with what they're doing now I certainly know the music backwards & forwards & for anyone to say that this album is "more of the same" immediately lets me know that they have no idea what they're talking about.

Ace Fans: If you're still not sure you can listen to the entire album for free at VH1... I have NO DOUBT that you'll be running to the store to buy it or iTunes to download it after having a listen. I haven't been this thrilled with a Kiss-related release in about 20 years & I take my hat off to Ace for pushing the envelope on this GREAT ALBUM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Ace In The Hole! September 15, 2009
By KingV
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album since Ace's 1978 solo to feature him alone on lead vocals. The only negative thing I can say is that I don't care for the digipack pyramid packaging. It was very cool to see that Anomaly is dedicated to Ace's family, friends, and fans and is in memory of Eric Carr and Dimebag Darrell. It was also cool to see a thank you in the liner notes to Gene, Paul, and Peter. Would have been cool to see some sort of acknowledgement to Jon Regan, Tod Howarth, Richie Scarlet, or any mention of the Comet; at least Anton Fig was mentioned.

The production on Anomaly is fantastic; the guitars and vocals sound great! I'm amazed at how good Ace sounds. His vocals sound as good as they did when he was half the age he is today and his guitar work is scorching! I can hear hints of work from his 1978 solo album, Unmasked, Frehley's Comet and Trouble Walkin'. There's a great variety of music here from heavy to pop; heavily distorted guitars to acoustic. Too Many Faces and Sister are the standout tracks and the latest Fractured tune is the best of the four.

I'm not disappointed at all and this has exceeded all expectations; highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ace is back! September 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This release leaves no doubt that while Paul and Gene may have been the brains behind Kiss, Ace was certainly the heart of the band. Some of the songs on this album sound a bit like his 1978 solo album (Foxy & Free), some sound like contemporary rock (Too Many Faces) and some are just plain fantastic (Sister). His cover of The Sweet's Fox On The Run is a lot better than I could have expected; in fact it's quite enjoyable, but the gem of the disc is definitely the fourth installment of the Fractured series. At last! Well worth the wait. Hard to believe it's been 20 years since the Ace's last solo album. BTW, don't expect this to sound much like Kiss; it doesn't. But that's a good thing. Ahh, it feels like 1978 all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars ACE BRINGS IT HARD..... September 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Surprise, surprise!! Aceman RIPS on this record. This is, so far, the best rock release Ive heard this year. Really, who else has anything out like this?

The guitars sounds are KILLER..big massive Les Paul tones with shimmers of clean electrics and acoustics laying back behind it all. Surprised at the quality of his vocals as well - glad he still has it in him.

Favorite cuts are the opener, Foxy & Free, Pain In The Neck (check out his killer classic Ace solo), Ghenghis Kahn (Page would be proud) and Fractured Quantum, which hints at his classic 78 Fractured Mirror.

I've been an Ace fan since early Kiss (75-79), but then lost him in a haze of 80's 90's mediocrity.

Believe me, he's back. Very impressive release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Expectations October 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Ace was said to have been working on a new album way back even before the reunion tour. After all these years, I had to wonder if Ace still had the goods. I had no idea that "Anomaly" would rock this hard. True Rock and Roll may be slowly dying, but if so Ace Frehley is the last man standing. And not only is he holding down the fort, he is kicking @$$ all over the place. I have not heard a Rock album this fresh, this energizing, and this solid from start to finish in many, many years. Ace deserves all the credit in the world for pulling this off. There is not a bad track or any filler to be found on this record. The only bad thing I can say about it is that it makes you sad to think about what "Psycho Circus" could have been if Ace had been allowed more input on that album. It's hard to single out the great tracks here, but I haven't heard anything that rocks like "Sister" in a long time. "Ghengis Khan" is absolutely unique and amazing. The "Fox on the Run" single is also brilliant. It's rare that a cover bests the original, but this one does. The highlight for me though is "Fractured Quantum". I've always loved Ace's Fractured series, and this one is especially sublime. I really hope this album finds a wide audience, this man deserves his due!

annoying packaging!
Yeah I was annoyed too, but I'll just put the pyramid thing together (or ignore it) and put the CD itself in a jewel case, which should slip inside the outer packaging. No big deal. It's what on the inside that counts, and that my friends, is one of the best rockin CDs in ages. So glad he's back.... Read More

Why Buy Without Samples

Remember, There was a time when people could only buy a "record" by an artist without ever hearing it first. They bought it based on the fact that they either heard a song on the radio or they bought it simply because they liked the artist from passed albums. There are... Read More
