Ace Frehley's solo career always has been as uneven as his personal life. Though by no means perfect, Space Invader is the guitarist's most energized effort since his 1978 debut. Its best cuts -- "Gimme a Feelin'," "I Wanna Hold You," "Inside the Vortex" -- spotlight front and center Frehley's coolly laconic vocals and nifty ability to blend glam, power pop and a street-punk swagger that belies his Bronx-bred background. If you're a fan of veteran rockers like Black Star Riders and The Winery Dogs, then check out Space Invader.
