Alice Tracks Delivers Rock To Camp Crystal Lake,
This review is from: Constrictor (Audio CD)
This vastly underrated album titled Constrictor features Alice Cooper doing what he does best glam rock horror yet this album features two tracks from the cult horror movie franchise Friday The 13th Part VI:Jason Lives with Teenage Frankenstein & He's Back, The Man Behind The Mask complete with the Friday The 13th iconic "Ki Ma"
This album deserves far more credit as it's a vastly underrated album, While it isn't Alice Coopers best album & there are a couple of bland fillers it's by no means not his worst either.
This album is more a medium tempo rock which is neither to hard, Dark or glam as it demonstrates what a underrated lyricist Alice Cooper is.
In my opinion Alice Cooper is one of rocks most influential artists of all time.

Must admit I only really know of the songs that charted in
the seventies of 'Alice' 'Alice' ???
But am aware of his long-term impact on the Rock-Scene.
Good 'music' review 'Doc'

For myself I think his 1970's output is Alice's purple patch, especially when Alice Cooper was the name of the Band, not just the singer. But if you are going to investigate his post 70's catalogue, "Constrictor" is probably one of Alice's strongest offerings (my personnel favourite is "Dirty Diamonds").
Songs like "Teenage Frankenstein" & "Trick Bag" are great little rock songs, although you do get the 1980's production values, which I've never been a big fan of.
Dreadful full album cover though, it really does baffle me how the record company let it slide.
Saying all that, it still nice to read a review of lesser know record by the "The Cooper-Man" (an affectionate nick name I've given him).

I love his show on Planet Rock.
