Once essential and unassailable, Alice Cooper albums have been gradually reduced to the status of gig souvenirs; the sonic equivalent of tour programmes for their inglorious creator's increasingly burlesque stage shows. Yet Brutal Planet finds Alice at least toying with the musical Zeitgeist by utilising contemporary metal devices and echoing Marilyn Manson dynamics. His lyrics, meanwhile, can still raise occasional eyebrows. "Pick Up The Bones" is traditionally and exquisitely sick while "Take It Like A Woman" is heavily reminiscent of "Only Women Bleed". But with the album's title track and "Eat Some More" Alice has also belatedly unearthed an environmentally motivated social conscience. Somewhat disturbingly however, both "Wicked Young Man" and "Blow Me A Kiss" are savagely right wing in tone and such clumsy, easily-misinterpreted lyrics would undeniably cause a less established, or indeed, younger man to be publicly pilloried. --Ian Fortnam

It is a very good metal album, and not the usual kind Alice makes-being his heaviest sounding ever-but has the tunes he is known for after many decades and influencing many, many shock rock bands. Excellent brutal album.
The title track is one of the good tracks. It's a great opener and is interesting for the inclusion of gothic tropes like the female vocal and slower chorus. If he'd have stuck to this format, it may have worked. 'Wicked Young Man' isn't bad at all, but is just not any better than ok. 'Sanctuary' is a great track with a killer chorus and a driving melody. 'Blow Me A Kiss' is simply boring and a dirge with no real hook or tune. 'Eat Some More' is better but is still a dirge that could have been excellent. It is only ok. 'Pick Up The Bones' is much of the same, a good song that should have been tremendous. These are all pretty slow tunes.
Then come s another slower and longer tune. 'Pessi-Mystic' is too long and too slow again. There is an interesting chorus but it is too little to grab the attention. 'Gimme' and 'It's the Little Things' are ok, slightly more upbeat but ultimately boring with no real meat. 'Take It Like A Woman' is great. It's the only ballad on here and is one of the 3 great songs on the whole album. 'Cold Machines' is quite catchy and finishes off the album well without being too interesting.
An Alice Cooper anomaly that he revisited in his sequel, Dragontown' although that had a lighter feel thankfully. Brutal Planet is just too dark and nihilistic, without the fun Alice of old.
`Brutal Planet' largely jettisons the tongue in cheek maestro of shock rock for an approach that uses these cold harsh industrial tones to address social woes that were clearly close to Old Black Eyes' heart as he faced the dawn of a new millennium. And in doing so, Cooper delivered one of the very best albums he has ever recorded. He ferociously heralded his second coming.
The new sound is deceptive at first listen. It sounds heavy and inaccessible. But after a few spins, it is clear that Alice's commitment to melody is still present and his lyrics have a serious maturity about them - though he still has the odd wink at his audience once in a while.
The songs are mostly co-written by Cooper and the album's producer, Bob Marlette. The infectious title track opener sets the scene with an examination of the conundrum of all the hideous brutality that takes place on planet earth while, at the same time, extreme beauty and acts of extreme beauty abound. It takes the form of Alice expounding on the horror in the verses, while in the choruses, God (a woman) replies by reassuring him about the beauty. It undoubtedly nods to Cooper's Christian rebirth, but it is done with great subtlety (though the final verse almost goes too far).
From here he examines the phenomenon of racial hatred and violence (`Wicked Young Man'), articulating his disdain for blame-laying -"It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig, I'm just a wicked young man".Read more ›

Excellent selection of songs with Alice at his best.
Highly recommended to everybody loving AC's style, music and the atmosphere it creates.
