4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Underrated Album March 28, 2006
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to this album a lot over the last couple of years and I personally think it's better than the first. I enjoy all the songs except maybe Time Ain't Runnin' Out.

A couple of the songs could have been recorded with a little more oomph, listen to Separate on this album and its OK, listen to the live version on Loaded Deck and its brilliant. Juvenile Delinquent is also a little slow, when they played it live at the Limelight Club at the start of the second tour it really rocked.

The best song on the album I would say is It's Over Now, which is a great ballad. Insane is a great tune too.

Definitely buy this is you're a fan of Ace, just don't expect hard rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Classic! April 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't agree with the other reviews. I think every song on this disc is great! While I prefer Ace to Todd Haworth, Haworth cowrote both of the "Frehley's Comet" albums. His songs are good, though, especially "Time Ain't Running Out"! This don't sound anymore like glam metal than any of Ace's post - Kiss material. Giove this a shot. You won't be sorry!

Second Sighting is an excellent follow-up to 1987's Frehley's Comet. Though Tod Howarth's vocals take up 5 of the songs on the album, Ace still pops up to sing on the majority of the tracks. Insane opens Second Sighting and sets the mood for similar material as Frehley's Comet--straight-up, guitar-based rock. Insane is a good rocker from Ace which is one of the better tracks. Time Ain't Runnin' Out is one of Tod Howarth's better performances without too much screaming. Dancin' With Danger is a middle-of-the-road track from Ace which showcases his vocals and blazing guitar. Despite its rather sappy tone (which was all the rage at the time), It's Over Now, a ballad from Tod Howarth, is the best song on the album. Loser In A Fight is another forgettable track. Juvenille Delinquent is a standard Ace rocker--nothing fancy, just OK, but it does have a great feedback and effects intro. Fallen Angel really doesn't fit. It's almost as if it was written and recorded by someone else and dropped on to Second Sighting accidentally. Separate has a cool riff and rap-type delivery by Ace. New Kind of Lover is more cookie-cutter material from Mr. Howarth. I wonder if this guy can write anything that doesn't have "Aaaaahhhhh!!!" as its main lyrical component? The Acorn Is Spinning is Ace's obligatory guitar-doodling inclusion...but with a twist; it's almost like a soundtrack for a short film about a boxer who takes a dive. I like Ace's cackling at the end of the song. Jamie Oldaker's drums also really add to this song's groove. Great stuff! Second Sighting doesn't quite measure up to Frehley's Comet but it is a worthy inclusion in Ace's catalogue. Unfortunately the songs are a little too commercial thanks to the late 80's trends and Tod Howarth's more dominant presence than on the previous album. Still, Second Sighting gives us another dose of Ace which is always a good thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd one, as good as the first. February 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the 2nd album by the comet, and it is as good as the first one. His guitar work on this album is more mainlined but just as heavy, and well worth the money. Stand out tracks include, The Acorn is spinning, and Loser in a Fight. This album plain rocks!

3.0 out of 5 stars Energetic and satisfying January 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I think that Second Sighting is a pretty good album from Frehley's Comet. It's in a straight-ahead hard rock musical direction. A total of ten tracks is included. Almost all of the tracks are straightforward hard rockers except for two of them. There's a power ballad ("It's Over Now") and an instrumental ("The Acorn Is Spinning"). The album's musicianship, songwriting, and production are good. I find all of the tracks to be listenable and worthwhile. Ace Frehley handles the vocals on four songs, and Tod Howarth sings on four others. Both Frehley and Howarth share the vocal duties on the straightforward hard rocker "Loser in a Fight." The guitar work throughout the album is cool and tight. The songs that I like the best are "It's Over Now" and "Time Ain't Runnin' Out." "It's Over Now" is an attractive, well-written power ballad that features nice vocals from Howarth. The song also contains a well-constructed guitar solo and good keyboard playing. "Time Ain't Runnin' Out" is a catchy tune that contains nice keyboard work and cool vocals from Howarth. Also, "New Kind of Lover" sports a pleasing guitar solo. Second Sighting is worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ace Frehley is God. January 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Alot of customers bash Second Sighting for its commercial appeal, but the power ballads on here are some of the most powerful,catchy rock-ballads EVER. Tod Howarth's high pitched singing tone might annoy. but Ace has never sung a ballad ever,so I guess i'd rather hear Howarth's ballads than Ace trying to struggle through a softer song.Ace's best work is his Raw rock tunesbut Ace Frehley's raw rock n roll voice makes this album worth it.
1.Insane-This is undoubtably Frehleys best song on here it just leaves you beggin for more.
2.Time Aint Runnin Out-One of the more rocking ballads on here,still a solid track though.
3.Dancing With Danger-Ace at his rocking best
4.It's Over Now-Todd Howarth's epic love song.
5.Loser in A Fight-both Ace and Tod sing on this one,probably one of the weaker songs on here
6.Juvinile Delinquent-Powerful,anthemic,great song.
7.Fallen Angel-Another Howarth ballad,this one is one of the catchier power ballads.
8.Seperate-Great song,great guitar work,great hook.
9.New Kind Of Lover-Tod Howarth REALLY lets loose his rock n roll talent here.best Howarth tune since "Breakout" from Frehleys Comet.
10.The Acorn is Spinning-Ace's fast,powerful,shredding guitar work reminds us why he's one of the greats.

Best Songs:Insane,Dancing With Danger,New Kind Of Lover

Worth it.

This remaster is nice, recorded at a higher volume which is typical for remasters. Great to be able to enjoy a classic Ace album in the best available format.

The CD resembles more like part two rather than a 2nd release.However, it's not all that bad if you liked the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the comet
I purchased every Ace Frehley album during the 80's and this is the most consistant. Song writing is tight and vocals by both Ace and Todd are superb. A must have.

As a devoted KISS fan this album is second only to Ace's first solo album in my book. Every riff and solo is memorable with the classic Frehley guitar tricks I felt were missing... Read more

This album contains a "few gems" as the previous rating stated, all of which were sung by Todd Haworth. Unfortunately, finding material from Todd is nearly impossible. Read more
