By my reckoning, this 1982 release was Cooper's 14th studio album, and although it doesn't bear comparison to the Grand Guignol concept albums of his mid-70s heyday, it's not entirely unsuccessful in its attempt to absorb New Wave influences - keyboards and programmed rhythms feature heavily. For a performer who many would have dismissed as a washed-up old glam rocker in a post-punk world, Cooper has proven remarkably resilient and adaptable. As the cover art showing all the lyrics for the album indicates, this is above all a talky album. Cooper has long been underrated as a witty lyricist, but Zipper Catches Skin features sassy and satirical takes on tabloid culture (I'm Alive), the battle of the sexes (Remarkable Insincere, Adaptable) and slasher films (Tag, You're It). The album also includes I Am The Future,a dystopian anthem used in the film Class of 1984.

This album basically comprises a bunch of short pop songs. I like girls works well but some of the humour on this album is just irritating.
The best songs are Zorro's Ascent, a guitar driven tongue in cheek story about the death of Zorro. Coopers voice works well on this one. I am the future ( from the film class of 1984 ) is a real classic and should have been a major hit. A classy use of soft keyboards with a slow delivery and great lyrics. Homosapiens also works very well. An accoustic based song with effective changes of pace and an interesting lyric about aliens.
Make that money is just about one of Alice's worst ever songs and the rest of the album is distinctly average. If you're a fan it's worth having, if not I probably would'nt bother

Better than the atrocious Special Forces but only by a whisker. Zipper... returns to the guitar-driven rock left behind after Lace & Whisky and , on the whole, is an ok album.

'Zorro's Ascent' is interesting for it's odd content and not too bad. However if you compare it to any opening track from any of his first 10 albums, it pales. 'Make That Money' is a dirty little rock song. It's a grower and the chorus turns out to be quite catchy, but again it is forgettable. 'I am the Future' is a great little semi-ballad/half-pint stadium rocker. 'No Baloney Homo Sapiens' is another bonkers song that is good but no cigar. 'Adaptable' is the best track here. It reminds you how good he was and could have been taken off of Love It To Death or Killer or Muscle of Love quite easily. Cracking.

'I Like Girls' and 'Remarkably Insincere' are 2 parts of the same track, basically. They are fast, urgent, slightly rocky, somewhat hard to pigeon-hole and completely awful. 'Tag You're It' is better with a very creepy tone and chorus. More like this would have been good. 'I Better Be Good' is ok but also kind-of nothing. As is 'I'm Alive'. It's a shame because the first half of the album wasn't too bad.

A step in the right direction. However, the tone for Dada would be somewhat different still...

This is a mixed album, something to cater for everyones taste. Some of the tracks are hilarious, lively mixes of rock, such as 'I'd better be good' which had me creased up with laughter for about an hour after I'd listened to it. Some tracks have extremely talented electric guitar solos such as 'Zorro's Ascent',which are amazing. On a more sinister note, the album contains 'Tag, your'e it' Which is about a bride called Debbie who is being chased by her maniac groom through the house. There are also knife-sharpening sounds, cutting sounds and terrified, ragged breathing on this track, as well as graphic descriptions of violence. Not for the fainthearted. (there's also a 'Something about Mary' style situation on the back of the CD cover OUCH!)All in all this is a fantastic album. If you haven't got it already-WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!
