Ace Frehley - ANOMALY - 09/15/09

The release date has been set, and the commercial has hit YouTube!

This is some great campy/tongue-in-cheek stuff!
<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/E2tWsNqnfpk&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/E2tWsNqnfpk&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>

That's a funny commercial with a few inside jokes.


As for the album itself - I'm in!


edit - here's a demo for one of the songs. this isn't the final album version, but it's a demo he did a few years ago.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/1eJXBX4vQm4&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/1eJXBX4vQm4&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x006699&color2=0x54abd6" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

1. Foxy & Free

I love Ace but my expectations are pretty low for this one. Hopefully he'll prove me wrong!

Day one for me too!

Can't wait for this. Will be worth it just to hear him doing "Fox On The Run".

Ack!

Re: Ace Frehley - ANOMALY - 09/15/09

I'm expecting a very good album from Ace.

I remember hearing him play, "Sister," live back in 1994 and thinking that it was a really strong song. I figured back then if he could do a whole album with songs that strong that the next Ace Frehley album would be a killer.

Little did I know that it would take another 15 years for that album to be released! But, hey! It's got, "Sister," on it!!!

Wow. I'll definitely check it out.

I almost popped in my ACE '78 cd the other day.

I have to ask...who designed that[the new cd's] CD cover? It looks kinda, Wolf T-shirtish.

Ace's 1978 solo LP gets a LOT of play in Casa Millheiser. It's just a great, straight-up rock-and-roll record. In interviews, Ace has said many times that he's modelling his new album after the 78 record, so I remain very hopeful.

"Sister" has been kicking around since before the Kiss reunion. I saw Ace perform it on the "Bad Boys" tour and I have it on an unofficial compilation of rareties called "The Other Side Of The Coin"

I like it. May be a little long for what it is, but I like it. It's catchy. Memorable.

Liking it a bit more now that I've come home and listened to it again. It's growing on me. If nothing else, it FEELS like Ace.

Ace is still making albums? Hmmm, I have to ask Eddie Trunk about Ace now.

*For those wondering, Eddie Trunk, Q104.3 DJ, is a friend of my family and he has all of these great stories about Ace being totally bombed while recording albums in his Nazi uniforms.

After about 10 minutes, I thought it was a waaay too long, but then I realized the website was looping it.
