“In Your Face” WAS on PSYCHO CIRCUS internationally in some places, just not on the U.S. release.

I picked Rocket Ride, Shock Me and 2000 Man. Though none of the songs listed are as good as my three favorite vocals from his '78 solo (Rip It Out, What's On Your Mind, Speeding Back To My Baby). The planets really aligned for Ace when he wrote/recorded his solo album!

Dark Light might be my favourite Ace song. It's so weird.

I went Rocket Ride, Talk To Me, and Dark Light. I have really been digging The Elder lately. I love the attitude in the "It's gettin' darka' all the time." line.

I think he sang particularly well on "Hard Times" and "Save Your Love". There was more power and aggression in his delivery on those than on anything before or since.

It's a cool song but I always felt his vocal on that was subdued, almost mumbling.

I like his delivery, almost talking, Lou Reed style (fitting in this case).

Shock Me,
Hard Times,
Dark Light.

all three are among my favorites and Ace's aggressive vocals on these make them highlights on the respective albums. The spoken parts in Dark Light are cool.
