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’s the last one with the original band with themes of teenage angst and all that. As a theme album, it’s kind of brilliant. The cover art was really cool on the vinyl album. It was delivered in a cart board box rather than a regular album sleeve. You...

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...

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 song from Killer though. I think I’m in...
