Ace Frehley is on a roll, and he's ready to embark on his next musical journey with Spaceman. His third solo outing in four years (and the first album featuring new Frehley compositions since his Top 10 ''Space Invader'' album in 2014). Of all of Ace's post-KISS recorded output, Spaceman might be the closest link to his widely acclaimed 1978 solo record, both in spirit and execution. First off, Frehley played all of the guitar parts on Spaceman, as well as bass on all but two songs. Longtime drummer Anton Fig, whose friendship with Ace began in that 1978 record, also appears on ''Off My Back'' and ''Pursuit of Rock and Roll''. Speaking of KISS brethren, one listen of opener ''Without You I'm Nothing'' should be a dead giveaway. That mighty dinosaur growl of a bass tone belongs to Gene Simmons, who co-wrote that song, along with ''Your Wish Is My Command,'' with the Space Ace at Frehley's home studio in Rancho Santa Fe, California. His reconnection with Simmons and fellow KISS vocalist-guitarist Paul Stanley (who joined Ace on a cover of Free's ''Fire and Water'' for 2016's covers LP Origins, Vol. 1) might be chalked up to the fact that Frehley has been sober for more than a decade (he celebrated 12 years of sobriety in September). Ace's clean living no doubt has a lot to do with his productive streak, which began with the release of his top 20 Anomaly album in 2009, his top 10 Space Invader LP in 2014 (a first for any KISS member); and continues with Spaceman (a title suggested by Gene himself).
