Alice's triumph. A dark,creepy, thrill a minute rock album which hits the heights at every turn. A concept album of vaudeville horror, its camp, its scary & its superb. From the title track to the Vincent Price narration on "Black Widow", to the finger clicking "Some Folks",the raucous "Department Of Youth" & the eerie "Steven" this is a record that takes you on a journey to some unsavoury places. This is not a record that is distasteful, its more like a 1950's monster movie or "Hammer House Of Horror" production, consigned to vinyl. This is the album (& the show) that made the name synonymous with extravagance & excess. There are a variety of styles on the album but it all seems to fit effortlessly,it really is a classic in every way.
