Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Dragontown, the third and final chapter to his rock morality series, finds Alice Cooper unfurling more grim tales of life before the apocalypse, but does it with the same wit, ferocity and genius that was first heard in his 1971 classic, Killer. Marilyn Manson may have stolen some of Cooper's thunder a few years back, but there is more to this old rock warrior than smeared mascara and ripped tights. On his 40th album, he's eschewed most of his comic shtick and self-parody of years past, employing a harder, guitar-saturated industrial sound that can compete with the best of agro rockers such as Korn and Rob Zombie. And while there aren't any teen anthems such as "Eighteen" or "Under My Wheels", lurking on the disc, "Mr Fantasy", his paean to self acceptance, comes close, as Cooper's menacing cartoon voice thunders, "I don't read books / I don't French cook or stroll around in galleries / I hate opera / I hate Oprah / Don't fill my head with poetry." Listeners will be aghast when Cooper serves up sacred cow in "Disgraceland" as he croons in a flawless Elvis Presley imitation that the fallen King "Ate his weight in country ham/ Killed on pills and broken dreams" and proves once again that this city ham still has what it takes to shock and rock. --Jaan Uhelszki

As it goes without saying, Alice Cooper is a legend. He has been going strongly for longer than any modern bands can hope to. About 4 or 5 times as long.
And yet he still comes up with new and original songs. His style has gotten heavier over the years (in particular the last two ...). But the lyrics are still intelligent, putting across very important points on our world and society.
If only modern rock could be even half as good ...
Unfortunately, though, a large number of nu-metal heads will overlook Alice Cooper as too old, and uncool. Well, the thing is, he is the original Marilyn Manson, and far superior. Where Manson will repeat too hate filled sentences over a repeated 4-bar tune, Alice will sing a story through the whole album, and have actual ideas withing these ... Not to mention interesting music !
I thouroughly recomend this album. It knocks any competition (Slipknot, MachineHead, BioHazard ... ) down and keeps on running.
Although not quite as good as Brutal Planet, and not up to the standards set out with such classics as Welcome To My Nightmare, and Billion Dollar Babies, this is still a great CD, and any Cooper fan, or rock fan, will be satisfied.

When you put this on for the first time and Alice launches into "Triggerman", you know this is going to be another masterpiece. There is real ambition and drive here and having been a fan for thirty years, I think I am qualified to say that he has never sounded better.
The music and the subjects of the songs have changed over the decades and become much more contemporary, but that's what keeping pace is all about. There is enough power and hard edge here to give any of today's supposedly heavy outfits pause for thought.
It's fair to say that the album is similar in content to Brutal Planet but that is in itself the highest praise. The tracks are individual and include some very memorable riffs and lyrics. In keeping with Alice's perennial qualities, what differentiates this from the mindless noise served up routinely by younger bands,is the very easily recognisable tunes. Underpinning the Coop's work has always been his ability to produce a good rock & roll record and you can expect nothing different here.
It's difficult to pick a stand out track but my favourites are Triggerman, Sex, Death & Money, Sister Sara & It's Much Too Late. There are no cuts I would skip.
Having been at Wembley this year for the 2001 Brutal Planet show, I can't wait to see this new material performed live.
I bought the album yesterday and have played it 4 times. (On the day of release, of course.) Buy it now, if you have even the slightest interest in this type of music. You won't be disappointed.

Format: Audio CD
So, the pop metal phase has finished, as did the art-rock phase twenty years ago, and the father of shock rock has once again ascended to the heavy metal throne.
No-one writes better lyrics than Alice Cooper, and his raw, gritty voice has lost absolutely none of his power even now as he has entered his mid-fifties. Just listen to the evil Elvis-satire "Disgraceland" (is that really Cooper singing?!), or the poignant, yet powerful ballad "Every Woman Has A Name", a succesful throwback to the days of "Only Women Bleed".
This album is highlighted by the slow, sludgy rap/heavy fusion track "I Just Wanna Be God", "Every Woman Has A Name", the furious "Triggerman" and the harsh "Fantasy Man". Cooper's vocals has never been better, and this album finally, finally, finally restores him to his former glory.
No pop metal or prog-rock anthems here, just pure, unadulterated heavy metal. Pick up this album and enjoy once more the father of shock rock, the musical might of the great Alice Cooper.

If you enjoyed Brutal planet and the accompanying dvd then this follow up is for you! All the familiar Alice elements are present and this cd does not disappoint, Alice is adept at keeping up with the times and as with its predecessor, Dragon Town uses scorching chugging guitars that are right up to date! This truly is a reborn Alice Cooper who puts his heart and soul into his messages such as the african genocide! Buy this cd, you will not be disappointed with it! Essential stuff!!!

Very much in a similar vein to his last album "Brutal Planet", "Dragontown" is a hard, fast and grim collection of tracks. Acerbic in places, the lyrics continue to express the tales of dissatisfaction and bleakness of the urban nightmare that "The Last Temptation" began. Had this album been by any other artist it would have warranted a rating of five stars; however to my mind it doesn't quite match the power and distinctive sound of "Brutal Planet" or the atmosphere and imagery of "The Last Temptation". It's still a good album though, as any Alice Cooper fan would expect.

Alice once again showing that he wont lay down and die. After last years album "Brutal Planet" and its amazing success of bringing Alice back into the spotlight. Taking away the industrial feel of brutal plaanet and adding more trademark Cooper saarcasm and wit within the lyrics of the album with his usuaal melodic theme to some song, this album is pure genius, and adding the bonus disc makes it a must have for any faan of alice Cooper new or old, a definate worth while investment from Alice and as always amazon dont fail to stock the treat for us all to buy aand enjoy:)
