For its time, this was a seriously disturbing album. Forget Marilyn Manson and all the other wannabes, this guy was/is still the man, no question. I had an inkling that this had been remixed in surround and it didn't take long to find it. As a now obsolete format, DVD audio didn't really get the chance to make an impact, sadly. I have had the cd of this for many years and still regard it as one of Alice's finest hours. Does DVD audio do the album justice? Oh yes, and some!!!! I have played this cd many times across several cd players but I'm hearing instruments that are normally buried in the mix, making this a new listening experience. It was the same for Queen's A Night at the Opera. The track "Steven" quite literally made my hair stand on end. A bit unhinged in stereo, in surround it's genuinely creepy, just brilliant. Classical instruments like violins on "Only Women Bleed" really stand out, thanks largely to 4.7 gigs of info and 5 speakers to spread unsuppressed sound. This wasn't cheap to buy, even second hand, but boy was it worth it. If you love this album like I do, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Alice Cooper's masterpiece. Remastered and added to, repackaged and simply amazing. If you listened to this years ago or if you just love classic rock this is one to consider. Banned in the UK because of it's creepy, dark references to drug-induced murder it has been recently given a reprieve and is, for me, a trip down memory lane. Made when rock was creative, experimental and pushed the bar to the top. Excellent buy! If you haven't heard this then you don't know rock at it's best!

Been waiting years to have this on CD. (Price sensitive) Grew up in an era where I knew all Alices' singles and stumbled on this Lp.
It is a masterpiece. Stands the test of time

I used to have this when it first came out on vinyl in 1975, but it's a bit worn, so i thought i'd get this expanded version. it's well worth it, you get the original album plus 3 alternative versions of Devil's Food, Cold Ethel(what an odd song) and The Awakening.

Saw Alice cooper perform this album in 1975 , what a great show and a great album , support at wembley was the heavy metal kids with the late Gary Bolton on vocals, only women bleed was a hit for Julie Covington two years later but Alice's original by far superior.

I like all of his music but this is the best of all of them.
The music is good and the lyrics are great, so diverse and dark but some humour in there.
