Alice Cooper – School’s Out – 1972

I think this Alice Cooper album contains the most worn out title track of all Alice Cooper albums. It’s a good song, no doubt about that but I’m kind of sick of hearing School’s Out. It was a mega hit at the time of course and I don’t think there’s a compilation album out there without it. I’m sorry but I cannot stand it anymore. It’s a rock n roll anthem so successful that it’s...

Alice Cooper – Killer – 1971

Just like the previous record – Love it to Death – in Alice Coopers discography Michael Bruce is the one that contributes with the greatest rock songs. You might almost call the rock anthems. Well, that’s actually what they’ve become over the years. I mean, how often has Alice Cooper performed Under my Wheels or Be my Lover live from this album? That’s not the only great songs from Killer though. I think I’m in...

Alice Cooper – Paranormal – 2017

Is the king of shock rock’s new album Paranormal what we’ve been waiting for? Well, I don’t know. It’s a good album for sure if you’re an Alice Cooper fan. But on the other hand, as a fan you might recognize quite a lot of the material even if you never heard it before. It’s new song but they’re familiar in some way. Not all of them of course but enough to almost create a...

Alice Cooper – Love it to Death – 1971

In 1971 Alice Cooper finally started to get close to the sound that would put them on the map of rock n roll forever. There is still a couple of song on Love it to Death that are kind of psychedelic but there’s fewer of them than ever before. It’s obvious that the involvement of Bob Ezrin as producer was a real vitamin injection for the band. For me, this is where the true saga...

Alice Cooper – Easy Action – 1970

Just like Alice Coopers first album Pretties for You Easy Action was released by Frank Zappa’s Straight Records. It’s really hard to say what’s really the truth. But the first two albums were released at least, that’s a fact. Both albums are pretty out there in my opinion but Easy Action is more settled down than its predecessor. And of course, compared to the great late Frank Zappa himself, this is very easy listening. Everything is about...

Alice Cooper – Pretties For You – 1969

I discovered Alice Cooper in the mid 80’s I think. DaDa was the first album I ever got in my possession. I guess Constrictor was the next one after that and from that day I knew I needed to have every album made by this dude. It never occurred to me that Alice Cooper once wasn’t a guy but a whole band. There were five members of the group and they all contributed to the...

Dennis Dunaway Project – Bones in the Yard – 2006

The first you hear when you put on the album and play it is something I would call oriental scales. It’s something you can’t put together with the original Alice Cooper Band sound or with one of its original members. It’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite in fact, but nothing to be expected at all. Soon you are totally in unison with the music and there’s a lot of interesting listening. It’s music...

Alice Cooper – Welcome 2 My Nightmare – 2011

This review is for the Universal: Exclusive Limited Edition. I haven’t bought the last few albums with Alice on the release day. I was so disappointed with The Last Temptation and Brutal Planet that I thought he’d lost his touch. But a few months, or even a couple of years ago, I started to write a complete discography on all the albums, the initial band era and Alice’s solo material. It’s only available in Swedish I’m...

Goes to Hell 0

Alice Cooper – Goes to Hell – 1976

Alice Cooper Goes to Hell follows in the musical wake after the legendary masterpiece Welcome to my Nightmare. The songs seem to be written with the stage in mind and how they could be performed live. It’s theatrical and would fit on any musical scene. At least if you’re talking about rock scenes and other equivalents. But I don’t think there’s any real classics on this album. Of course, we got the main title but...

Super Duper Alice Cooper – 2014

I’m never first with reviewing stuff. Well actually I am sometimes but usually not. Especially when I come to big commercial things. For some special interest stuff, I can be first and alone to write about it in the whole world. Alice Cooper is kinda one of my special interests though, but Super Duper Alice Cooper is kinda “big” and very commercial. I’m sure there are loads of reviews out there so why should I...
