Re: Disappointed by the show: a question

I think the reality is Alice is not high profile like AC/DC,Aerosmith,Ozzy ect . He has a very loyal cult following,and a big budget show vis-a vis with cd sales.....does not equate to a show like the original "Nightmare"or something in his heyday...Its not going to happen unless he has a "hit" cd a...

Re: Opening Night SPOILERS!!!!

Where is "Under My Wheels??"..lol...one of his signature songs removed.Not that fond of the "covers section"....but I love The Who,would have liked to see him do "Substitute" or "The Seeker"

Re: Tonights the night...Maiden shows may contain spoilers

Thx for the clip!

....Glad Babies is back into the setlist,now if he can only put Wheels in!! I'm taking 2 newbies to the Maiden/Alice show in Toronto,and for their sake,I expected to see his signature songs in concert,even though I know its a truncated setlist.

Re: chart position

I saw the UK chart position discussed on Alice's Facebook page,then i noticed it was posted on the Wikkipedia Alice Cooper page,under discography.I don't know if this corroborates the chart position or not,but all the other chart info seemed to be correct.I was lead to believe that the UK edition wa...

Re: W2MN .. REVIEWED

Here's my rather terse critique..... Firstly.i have more a predilection for the "Evil Alice" as opposed to the "Fun Alice".From the get go i was hoping for a Welcome To My Nightmare meets Brutal Planet type of album.a darker, heavier, twisted album.With Nightmare 2 we have a gallimaufry of songs,a v...

Re: chart position

W2MN had quite a precipitous drop off this week.IMHO i thought IBYFO was not a good single choice,maybe IAMOY would of been better.The "Fan Pack" must have significantly hurt the UK chart position,with the cd debuting at #161.

2008 "Shogun" 24 thousand #23
2011 "In Waves" 22thousand #13

Re: W2MN - First Week U.S. Sales Projection at 20-22K

Also keep in mind the declivity of record sales every year. 20k in 2011 might be akin to 30k back in '08 when ACAS came out.

Re: W2MN - First Week U.S. Sales Projection at 20-22K

More food for thought:..Lenny Kravitz's latest opus was projected to sell 15-20 thousand and ended up selling 20,145.landing at #17 on the Billboard charts.The last Alice album to hit the Top 20 was Trash (pre Soundscan era)back in '89.

Re: W2MN - First Week U.S. Sales Projection at 20-22K

Food for thought.Metal band Trivium last month sold 22 thousand copies and landed at # 13 on the Billboard charts.Week to week sales fluctuate,but this may auger well for Alice to place in the Top 20.

Re: If W2MN is successful

The way i look at it is.......ACAS went to #53 on an independent label (SPV).and i can imagine if they would have a top 40 album if they had W2MN.

Now,being on Universal ,with the whole Nightmare hoopla,the Rock & roll Hall of Fame,and a ton more promotion,should that not warrant a Top 20 placing?

Re: If W2MN is successful

i would like to see at least a top 20 ,and with the added promotion ,maybe a top 10,that would be nice! More radio play would help.

The last time Alice was in the Top 10,you guessed it,,,the original Nightmare went Top 5.
