I have to say that I never expected such a great album from Ace, especially not at this point in his career... but this album is FANTASTIC! Ace has gone into musical areas that he's never covered before & Genghis Khan alone is more than worth getting this LP for. I think it's the best tune he's ever written but I also love Fox on the Run, Change the World, It's a Great Life & Fractured Quantum.
Too Many Faces and Sister are the standout tracks and the latest Fractured tune is the best of the four.
The songwriting is good & VERY different for the Spaceman & while there are some "Frehley's Comet" style tunes here (Foxy & Free, Pain in the Neck & Sister) that style is a big part of Ace's repetoire & you either like it or you don't.
But the new direction he's taken on Genghis Khan, A Little Below the Angels, Change the World & It's a Great Life are HUGE musical shifts for Ace & sound like NOTHING he's ever done before.
The production on Anomaly is fantastic; the guitars and vocals sound great! I'm amazed at how good Ace sounds. His vocals sound as good as they did when he was half the age he is today and his guitar work is scorching!
