Personally, I like AC's early stuff, but he keeps getting better. His later stuff holds, in my opinion, the classics like Poison, House On Fire and Trash, with the exception of the Billion Dollar Babies album from earlier in his career.
This new offering from AC will hopefull please both sets of fans.
I heard a preview copy, and it ROCKS!!
From the very first guitar chord on Woman of Mass Distraction, it sounds classic AC. It's fast, it's pounding and if you don't smile you must be dead. And then AC's vocals kick in.
Man, if he doesn't keep surprising me with the versatility of his voice. The chorus of WMD has that Alice Cooper caterwaul that only he can perfect; thats unmistakeable Alice!
And some of the later songs he really stretches his vocals. The earlier songs will please later fans, while the middle section of the album is similar in style to his early career, and should please those fans. It slows down a bit in tempo, but will pick up again before his album ends.
1 - the album is short. 13 songs, but only about 45mins of music. Some of the songs can't be too much longer than 3minutes, and they are so good, I wanted them to go on longer.
2 - The UK album does have a bonus track, which actually is a pile of Trash. It tries to mix in this rap which is extremely poor, and you long to hear proper Alice sounds. It spoils the end taste of the album slightly, but it is only a bonus track, so we can forgive it.
But it HAS got some of the best songs AC's done for years. Babies (All Got Rabies) is brilliant, and You Make Me Wanna is truly hilarious.Read more ›
Alice shows his trademark tongue-in-cheek and current affairs savvy on such tracks as 'Woman of Mass Distraction', 'Saga of Jesse Jane' (classic Alice), 'Steal That Car' and 'Your Own Worst Enemy'. The guitar sound is perfectly retro - nice stuff! However, the bonus track 'Stand' with Xzibit is just awful and sticks out on this record like a sore thumb. It should have been left off.
In summary a good album and one of the better Alice albums
Alice Cooper is the F***ing master of his trade, this album hits the correct formula right on the nose. Read more
