The sixth full-length studio solo album by former guitarist of legendary American Hard Rock band KISS.
Frehley self-produced the album, which was recorded at The Creation Lab in Turlock, California. Coming off a year when Kiss' induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame came off, as the ungrateful Gene and Paul show, original member and now solo outsider Ace Frehley had something to prove, at least to the loyal fans (aka the Kiss Army).
Like a shooting star headed toward earth from another solar system, Ace Frehley operates in his own musical galaxy. He's a musical maverick, an improbable bestselling New York Times author in 2011, and an iconoclast adored by millions of fans around the world since 1974.
No kowtowing to the current sound or other embarrassments make this a fan album in the best sense, and on top of it all, Ace's guitar playing is inspired while his voice remains a Buck Dharma-like mix of warm and weathered. For longtime fans, "Space Invader" is a rocket well worth riding!
Upon release, the album reached No. 9 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the only time a solo album from a past or current Kiss member has ever attained a US top 10 album position.
Through his seminal work with KISS and as a solo artist, Ace Frehley is championed as one of the most influential guitar players of the last four decades, and his impact on popular music is immeasurable. With his smash 1978 solo album and post-KISS work, including 2009's "Anomaly", Frehley continues to be the best-selling member of the original line-up, or any other!!
