Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The Eyes of Alice Cooper arrives right on schedule. Every decade or so, the living legend that is Alice Cooper temporarily abandons the golf courses of Arizona to recapture the rock zeitgeist that he once bestrode like a gore-drenched colossus. Whether he's defining schoolyard rebellion, empathising with feminists, decapitating dollies or seducing drive-time slots with vials of pomp rock "Poison", when it comes to the rock & roll "A" list, the stately, vaudevillian Cooper has always been there (or thereabouts). And after a relatively protracted lean spell of twisting in the wind of change while desperately trying to get the measure of nu-metal, Alice is back to the very peak of his form with an album that, while casually capturing the stripped-down, garage-rocking contemporary mood, is quintessentially Cooper. Inspired by the fundamentalist spirit of the White Stripes and the Vines, Alice has re-embraced his incendiary Detroit roots, stripped his band right back to basics and delivered a set of deliciously concise, hook-laden, potential hits that mirror his very best work of the early 1970s. Simultaneously vital ("Man of the Year"), inspired ("Detroit City"), classic ("The Song that Didn't Rhyme") and contemporary ("Between High School & Old School") the apparently indestructible Alice Cooper sounds like a contender once more. --Ian Fortnam

Just purchased this CD yesterday, on the strength of the return to the Garage feel, which has been lacking from Alice's offerings in recent years. This is not a concept set of tunes like we have become used to from Alice throughout his career.
What we have here are 13 average to great tracks, all independent of each other, simple straightforward lyrics, first class musicianship and production. In short this is what Alice should have done years ago - say after 'Trash' (his last decent recordings).
On 'Eyes', the first track is a bit of a throwaway track - possible live material to fill between a couple of classic tracks. I would reccomend skipping straight to track 2, which rocks. We even get a smoocher in 'Be With You Awhile' - and it does not disappoint - if you like 'I Never Cry'.
An interesting track comes in 'This House Is Haunted' - a creepy number akin to 'Former Lee Warner' on 'DaDa' LP. In fact this track could come straight from 'DaDa'.
In short a good rocking CD, with plenty of variety for all Coop fans, with a smattering of the Garage feel we hear from the vaults from Spiders and Nazz - it is there, you can hear feel it in the production. As for the cover, it features a return to my favorite spider eye make up (aka Love It To Death). Yes!
Treat yourself. Let's just hope he plays 'Black JuJu' on the next tour. Come on Alice, please.

So, here’s the much vaunted, ‘back to basics’, Alice Cooper release. But, having clawed his way back from Dragontown, and recruited a couple of young guns on the way, is he still capable of kicking out the garage door, taking to the alleys, and spilling blood on the concrete?
Well, the CD cover certainly whets the appetite, with Alice’s eyes glaring at you from each grainy page, and a Gibson SG Custom making an overdue return to the mix. I can hardly wait! Outta my way!
What do you want from me? Is a capable track, nothing too clever, lyrics for the ordinary man, and a archetypal Alice guitar sound at 1 minute 17 seconds (if you’re quick), so we’re off to a reasonable start. Not so much kicking the garage door down as rebelliously leaving it unlocked overnight.
Between High School and old school is a track which us ‘traditionalist’ aficionados can relate to, another satisfactory track, but not one which finds Alice back to the boil.
Man of the year had me fooled initially, as the voice just doesn’t sound like Alice’s. There’s no snarl, no sneer, and no venom going on here, but it’s the best track of the album so far. It almost has the classic ‘Alice’ feel to it, is sharp, and has three gutsy plectrum scrapes - more than enough for old rocker like me.
Novocaine is bang on target. We’re out of the garage and halfway down an alley, and beginning to wish we'd kicked the garage door for the hell of it - bugger the bunions! We're being shown the good stuff with this simple, yet mature song, and at 1 minute 34 seconds there’s a nice dual bend of trebly guitar strings.

For a devoted thespian of the Alice Cooper Group such as me this is my fave album from Alice's solo career. Not the reflective look back in anger the title would suggest. Not the Mansonesque metal that Alice's iconic appearence on the cover hints at either. The Eyes is Alice returning at long last to his garage roots.
The recalls the arrangements of the early seventies and their sheer "outness", School's Out & Muscle Of Love are particularly
represented. Alice treats us to a singing style not heard for nearly thirty years. The guys defy Mudrock's production to really let it swing.
There was only one Alice Cooper Group but to sound like them today just wont get you airplay unless like Manson you are having squillions pumped into your promotion. With today's "bands" obliged to sound like session muso's anyway this album is an act of defiance and a real fete.
Alice sings about how cheap you have to get to please your opera loving girlfriend, yuppie suicide, streetfights,and of course Detroit City. His humour is blacker than ever, no wonder Maddonna feinted.
From High School To Old School is a loners anthem which sits alongside punk gems,r&b workouts,and some dark ballads. When Alice sings of sharing his flat with his dead girlfriend we know weve got him back again.
No more shadowplay with the nu metal this is Alice Cooper "sui generis". Time to believe this beatnik once again.

At first I didnt like this album,I'd played dragontown over and over when it first came out,but it took me 2-3 plays to get into 'eyes'.However the album is a grower,so because of all the references to 'Love it to death' ie the original eye make up,black and white cover,the photo of the band in a similar pose etc I went back and played all the early original Alice cooper band material and really understood what was on offer here.Alice has taken us back to the start again I think.Not right back to easy action or pretties for you though but these songs would be there on Love it to death,killer or schools out.And there is alot of good material here,stand outs being 'between high school and old school','detroit city'(reminds me of be my lover),'novocaine','spirits rebellious'(similar to public animal no9)and 'man of the year'(a bit like dance yourself to death),low points being 'the song that never rhymed' and 'i'm so angry'.Whats missing is a 'black juju' or a 'dead babies' as all the songs are just 3-4 minutes long.So all in all a decent offering from the man i've followed since i was 11 in '72.Maybe too much humour and not enough shock and dark lyrics for my liking.What Alice needs now is some airplay and a single or 2,'be with you awhile' is very radio friendly as is'novocaine'.
