This is one of my favorite Alice Cooper albums of all time. The diversity of Alice Cooper never ceases to amaze me. You can feel the heat in 'It's Hot Tonight', having moved drums and amps and junk I know where he's coming from in 'Road Rats'. Who would have believed that Alice Cooper wrote the best love song ever with 'You and Me'. And to finish it off we have 'My God' which is totally astounding, opening up with a church organ. This album proves my point that Alice Cooper is better than heavy metal, he's class. Love you Alice!

What is wrong with you people ? my feet were tapping from track one .This CD shows all sides of alice cooper . It is nice to listen to. that is what music is about fun listening and good vibes. never mind the analytical stuff if it sounds good enjoy it.
A great Listen as the title suggests .
Lace - soft and delicate.. Whiskey - a kicker with a bite.
Rock and a gentle Roll !!

As often when artists depart from their regular style, the outcome is not well received by die-hard fans, while the greater public never has a chance to discover the gem, because of the negative reviews of the fans (see the ones of the first Supertramp or Lou Reed's Rock'n'Roll Animal).
Lace and Whiskey falls into this category. It is a terrific mid-70's pop FM album, and in my opinion a much more convincing achievement than the rest of Alice Cooper's discography. Of course, this is not easy to admit if you despise pop music, and it is not easy to find out if you despise Alice Cooper.
Well, whatever side you on, it is time to open your mind.

After `Goes to Hell', the appalling disco Disney, made-for-The-Muppets follow-up to 1975's seminal `Welcome to My Nightmare', `Lace and Whiskey' was a welcome improvement from Alice Cooper (and, I imagine, somewhat of a relief for fans). Not quite a return to form, it is certainly coherent and adult, where its predecessor was anything but.

This time, producer Bob Ezrin brings a darker tone and an edgier rock sound than he did on `Goes to Hell', but as a whole it is still on the soft side compared to `Nightmare' and the Alice Cooper Band albums. Though there is no horror or shock in these songs (and bluntly, a few are lyrically limp), there is an undercurrent of sex and wretchedness to it which becomes apparent after a few listens. This infuses the whole thing with an unexpected power that will keep bringing you back.

The steamy rock riffs of `It's Hot Tonight' start the album off with a sense of restlessness that seems to stay with it throughout, despite the genre-hopping styles of the other tracks. As an opener, it definitely recalls the Alice Cooper Band of old. Possibly the most addictive track in this set follows with the castanet-infused title track rocker paralleling sex with alcoholism (Be as soft as you can, Put a drink in my hand, I'm as scared as I ever could be). The pace picks up a notch with the piano-driven `Road Rats', a song about roadies. Lyrically bereft it may be (We work this band cause we make it rock, But we're the guys that make it roll), but in its self justification that the star would be nothing without the roadie, it supports the developing theme of despair.

An anomaly in the Alice Cooper back catalogue that certainly looks good - most of his record sleeves were pieces of art and this is no exception - but doesn't quite deliver on the music.

'It's Hot Tonight' however is a fantastic opener that is a perfect marriage of form and content. It feels clammy and dirty and hot. It's phenomenally catchy and quick becoming one of my favourite AC tracks. The title track is another great song but without the swagger of 'It's Hot...' 'Road Rats' is where it starts to wane slightly. It's ok but not particularly interesting. It has quite a nice riff but it is ultimately forgettable. The same can be said for 'Damned if You Do'. It is a lot more fun but doesn't have the staying power of most of AC's classics. More of a filler. 'You & Me' is an oddity. As seen in his previous album, AC seemed to have gone a bit 'easy listening' and 'You & Me' is the culmination of that. While I cannot disagree that it is a very good song, has exceptional lyrics and a nice production, there is something unnerving about it. It does not feel like an AC song. It is an Andy Williams number. Not that that's a bad thing. Ultimately it is a good track.

'King of the Silver Screen' is ok and gets an extra star for some great lyrics but it is not a great tune and does go on a minute or 2 too long. 'Ubangi Stomp' is minor classic and a personal favourite of mine. It is just so cool and rock and roll, all wrapped up in 2 minutes. Brilliant. 'No More Love at Your Convenience' is a song that should have been great but just ambles on regardless. A catchy chorus but otherwise average at best. 'I Never Wrote These Songs' is forgettable, especially for the saxophone solo at the end! No need. 'My God', however does finish off the album very well.
