I am not going to go into every song, but some songs seem like they could have been right off of his KISS solo album, and others off of the Frehley's comet album. Is that a good thing though or a bad thing? You know he has been sitting on this material for 20 years, so maybe that is just natural. The kids singing on the album I could do without.
He will be forever tied to KISS, which is a good thing if he wants to sell records. If I close my eyes and don't think about it and listen to these songs, it's kinda that Rocket Ride feeling all over again. Sure I wish he could have cleaned himself up and had the dedication to KISS, and if he did I think he still would be in the band, same for Peter. It's not Gene's problem if Ace can't commit to the band. As much as Gene loves money, he knows damn well that Ace (if sober and dedicated) is a money magnet if he is in KISS, but when he's not and showing late, playing sloppy, and not dedicated he is a detriment to KISS. It is what it is, and ACE is who he is. I have been in a crappy bar band for 5 years now, and have gone through 3 different 2nd guitar players for various reasons. It's hard work keeping a band together, very few have managed to do it that play any length of time. It may be for the best they keep doing their own things, and I will still buy and follow them both.
The version i bought also has one of the most unique CD package designs i've seen, as you can fold it into a pyramid, and put it on display.
If you are a fan of the Space Ace, or just classic 70's hard rock in general, this album is highly recommended.
In case you are interested: after the digital download I got the signed copy from Tinman, which included a T-shirt with flaming Guitar. I also bought the CD from Best Buy ( a place I usually avoid) with the Silver pressing. And finally I bought a copy from Amazon that I can mess around with and not be concerned with like the signed copy, or the unopened Silver copy. I'm happy !!
