Well this is a "best-of" that I never thought I would see released. Undeniably fans of the Ace KNOW he is worthy of a collection such as this, but for some reason a greatest hits just didn't seem that it would be warranted by the powers-that-be at the record label.
12 Picks covers all the bases really, though a couple more studio cuts could have replaced the live selections. I mean Rip It Out and Breakout were already released on Live + 1 (OK, in different versions) so why not replace them with, say, the studio version of Breakout and another great tune like Shot Full of Rock or We Got Your Rock? As far as the rest of the new material goes, it is pretty good. Rip It Out, Breakout and Rocket Ride sound like they were lifted directly from Live + 1 as there is little difference between these "new" versions. Cold Gin is respectable though we could have been spared Tod Howarth's melodramatic vocal overtures. It is a nice inclusion as Ace wrote the song of course but never sang it live when he was a member of KISS. Ace's guitar is the real star of this version of Cold Gin, especially during the intro and the bridge. Shock Me, what can I say....an extended 5 minute solo from Mr. Frehley on what I consider to be his best song. Who could ask for more? 12 Picks closes with Deuce, KISS' best song in my opinion. Why Ace sings it and includes it on the album I have no idea. My best guess is the guitar doodling during the solo. You would think that he would rather include some of his own material but, oh well. He pulls it off alright.
12 Picks is a welcome addition to any KISS fan's collection. As far as Ace fans go, it is nice to have most of Ace's prime material on one CD. If one has never owned any of Ace's post-KISS recordings, pick up this album. It contains the essentials and throws in a few surprises as well--if you are fortunate enough to get one of the limted-edition copies with the autographed Ace Frehley colored guitar picks (mine's black...nice gimmick). But if you have an extra $15 burning a hole in your pocket, pick up Loaded Deck as well to get the entire Ace experience.
