3.0 out of 5 stars The Life (and Death) of the Party, 21 April 2010
This review is from: Constrictor (Audio CD)
I would assume you are here because you're an Alice Cooper fan, and you've probably heard Man Behind The Mask or you are wishing to complete your collection of 25-ish Cooper studio albums. Well, this is a very curious album. It's full of glam metal-type hits heavily influenced by the trends of the time (sadly, Alice has been a trend chaser rather than setter since Flush The Fashion). It is one hell of a guilty pleasure album. This reviewer personally finds his early 80s so-called 'wilderness albums' far more beguiling and creative than these late 80s albums that put his name back on the map so to speak, and the dire production nigh-on sinks it. Yet there is much to enjoy: the rousing Teenage Frankenstein, the irreverent humour of Thrill My Gorilla, and the only song I consider to be close to an actual Cooper song on the album, Simple Disobedience. Sadly, this is the album's main problem- none of it sounds much like Alice. It's an 80s digest Alice, buffered and polished into a pop-rock package. Thankfully, things were looking up post-Constrictor.
