classic 3rd album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 29/08/2009 19:25:16
If like me your a new fan of Alice and their music and don't know where to begin i suggest you start with this album. Originally released way back in 1971 this is technically the groups third album but due to the experimental nature of the first two Love it to death is where it all starts to fall into place wonderfully.
Reportdely written over a seventh month period much of the credit is now given to the work of Bob Ezrin who reconstructed the bands sound and made them more accessible to radio. The emphasis on the group getting play ment that a whole new audiance not only live were now able to hear the band. The single from this album was I'm Eighteen which was a teen anthem. Several other tracks make the grade in terms of accessiblity. Tracks like Caught in a dream, Second Coming, and the Rolf Harris cover Sun Arise all have a rock and roll sound which still stand the test of time.
Listeners were drawn to the simple yet thought provking lyrics such I'm Eighteen and the group struck a chord with their public. Kids began to love the band and what they did live and in the studio. Experimental material is included which listerners should be ready for Black Juju anyone ! which I still don't understand .
The original album sleeve was withdrawn as it reputedly included a photo of the lead singer with his thumb stick out the front of his trousers. Many people misinterpreted the photo and it was changed to a more conservative one but this was only the beginning or a band who would go onto greater sucess and controversey both with their music, shows and album covers.
