Ace Frehley - Anomaly

Anyone else an Ace fan? He was easily the best thing about KISS, IMO.

I was expecting to be blown away by the new album, Anomaly since so many people were ranking it in their top five of the year, and some even saying that it is his best ever. I must say I'm a bit let down, mainly because of those high expectations.

I like the solo '78 album and the first two Comet albums much better than Anomaly so far. It does rank ahead of Trouble Walkin' but then, it almost had to. I thought it was pretty uneven. Some really great songs like Foxy and Free, Outer Space, Sister, Genghis Kahn etc.. and I love Ace's version of Fox On The Run, but then there are some real clunkers like Pain In The Neck and A Little Below The Angels. The instrumentals are good, but not great.

Don't get me wrong, I still like it a lot. Mediocre Ace is better than no Ace at all, but there's way too many skippers here.
