This was the last Alice cooper album i bought my best friend before he died in 2000. im so glad my buddy got to here Alice going back to heavy metal. Raise your fist and yell was our favourite album, and we had given up all hope of hearing Alice screaming snarling vicious lyric's again. Alice on this occasion invites us to a brutal vision of the world with wicked young men cold machines waste greed and bones! it sounds like Alice had written this in the apocalypse! but in truth the disturbing reality is this is world we live in. exellent return to form.

Once again Alice returned after a few years away but he came back surprisingly heavy and well...brutal. This album sounds very similar to bands at the time such as Marylyn Manson, White Zombie, Korn, Metallica, as Alice proved he could be just as heavy and intense as them but also he could write memorable quality tunes and always had done.
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.

Well, many have may be disappointed but I'm not. Being a die-hard Alice Cooper fan I wouldn't want to listen anything less than a new, heavy metal record getting released at this time from Alice Cooper. True, cruel, heavy, meaning-full, a very rich album that stands tall to the new musical standards of the heavy metal scene of today and gives Alice a step ahead to prove that he ain't no nostalgic old man who will seat back and whine about the old glory days. He's here with this album and he will say through it what he wants to say, and not for making another pointless record (like many groups do!) just to be around. Fave songs are "Pick Up The Bones" - a true macabre of the war of Cossovo through Alice's eyes, something that only HE could paint in such a cynical way. Next is "Pessi-mystic", a big SHUT UP from the Master Of Shock Rock to anyone who would try to change his mind....no, honestly is such a heavy song that really makes me wanna go headbanging! "Brutal Planet" song is the way that Alice sees a Godless world and no one could ever say it more clear and loud than him! All the songs are pure hard and heavy, showing that Alice never melted or soften up by time....like wine, the older the better! Alice Cooper's back! Strong and healthy as ever to get on everyone's nerves for not being retired. He won't, get used to that idea! ;)

Once again Alice ups the ante by changing from metal to industrial nu-metal - sort of. As always, he pulls it off to a degree as he has chops in this genre and a long history of adapting to trends, but it ultimately fails as the majority of the album is pretty weak. Although it does sound quite hefty.

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.

At the turn of the century it had been six years since Alice Cooper had released an album (the oddly old-fashioned `Last Temptation'). For such a momentous occasion - his return - he chose to do so with the howling industrial metal onslaught of `Brutal Planet'.

`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".
