The Real Thing
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/09/2007 18:11:26
If you consider where do all the best glam/trash/hard - rock bands come from, you should try this! It is unfair to say this is Alice´s best album BUT it is the best band album Alice Cooper Band ever did. The sound world is best described as: Different. Bob Ezrin´s production is airy, tight and colourfull. Songs are great and often weird, but the end result is pure rock ´n´roll, at it´s best. If you ever get a original vinyl copy of this master piece: BUY IT.
It will double your hearing pleasure!

This is probably the best album by Alice. I first heard it when I was 16 and living on a diet of Kate Bush, Meatloaf, ELO, Abba & Pink Floyd. A rather more "with it" friend was not impressed with my musical choices and lent me this album specifically to listen to "I Love The Dead". I'd never heard anything like it before - or since. I obviously listened to the whole album, loved it all and everything changed.
The best thing was discovering I'd arrived in the middle of his career at that point. So, there was the whole back catalogue of records already released before and after this one to discover. Billion Dollar Babies is still by far the best. (Though Welcome to my Nightmare is very close).
This album defies being pigeon holed. Every song is catchy and unique. The band were at their peak musically and lyrically. This is rock music at it's inspired best. No formulae, no boundaries and every song unique. Forget the heavy metal drivel he's been churning out since the mid eighties. This is the real thing.
