The American musician Ace Frehley is one of the founding members of KISS, but he was also always doing his solo music on the side whenever he found the time. Making music since 1973 leaves behind an impressive discography, not only solo and with KISS, but also with quite some cooperations. Well, anyway, this is the ninth studio album. “Origins Vol. 2” is the name of this release. “Origins Vol. 1” was released in 2016. And now, four years later, this is the successor.
This album comes with eleven songs plus a bonus track. On “Origins Vol. 2” Ace Frehley is focusing on his musical origin. Picking eleven songs to cover, as well as various guest artists to support him on the songs, seems like a huge challenge. But he did well. The album has a great mix of tunes. And a wonderful journey through time. Each song has its own character. Even though they all are covers, Ace Frehley made them his own.
Forty-seven minutes of a journey through time. Ace Frehley will keep you entertained with each song. “Origins Vol. 2” is definitely worth listening to and a great addition to every music lover’s collection. So go get your copy now.
