Travel with the Sun – TwentySeventeen – 2017

When there’s an email from a band that recently released their debut album in the inbox things can basically go in two directions. The first way is that it’s something kinda awkward on the album. Perhaps something that’s way to modern and doesn’t suit an old man like me. Then there’s the other possibility. That the music featured on the album is really good and you wonder why you never heard it before. This is...

Some suff I listened to…

I listen to a whole lot of music but it’s only on occasion I have enough energy to write something like a review about it. I thought I would take this opportunity to very quickly describe what I have been listening to in the last week without going into any depth. But first, some background. When I was very young I listened mostly to what was played on the radio at the time. Later I...

Alice Cooper – Welcome to my nightmare – 1975

Since the previous album, Muscle of Love was the last with the original Alice Cooper group, Welcome to my Nightmare is the first by the solo artist. It’s a theme album of course and I think it’s pretty obvious what the theme is. If not, there’s a hint in the title. Welcome to my Nightmare might also be the definite album that Alice Cooper is most associated with. There is a couple of song that...

Alice Cooper – Muscle of Love – 1973

This album has been over shadowed by other successes to say the least. That doesn’t mean that Muscle of Love isn’t a good album, it is!

It was delivered in a cart board box rather than a regular album sleeve. You...

John Mellencamp – Sad Clowns and Hillbillies – 2017

I started to listen to John Mellencamp when the Lonesome Jubilee came out. When was that? 1987? During that time he was still calling himself John Cougar Mellencamp. There’s actually a rather long story about his name. From the early days, it was just John Cougar and as far as I know that was due to record company demands. But nowadays – on Sad Clowns and Hillbillies, he uses his real name and has done...

Billion Dollar Babies – 1973 – The first masterpiece

I’ve been an Alice Cooper fan for over 30 years. That makes me feel kind of old but never mind that. I know some people have been fans for an even longer period so that makes them…even older. The first album I bought was the atypical Da Da and after that, it was Constrictor I think. After that everything exploded and I knew I needed to own every single album. It wasn’t that hard to...
