Re: Detroit Stories Review

After a few spins I am starting to form an opinion on this DS. One consideration comes up in my mind: Does the "Villain" still exist? Would like to know what you thin about I mean, you could ask that question at many different times in Alice's career. You could ask that about Lace and Whiskey, abou...

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

In the band meeting Roxie also asked Bob about the solo on Don't Give Up, sounded like he had recorded one but didn't know if it had ended up on the album. Am I reading that correctly? Yeah, heard this also. I haven't seen Ryan's names on any credits, although there is a solo on the album version o...

I doubt we will ever see another Alice Cooper album that starts of with 3 cover songs.
Except "Go, Man, Go" is an original, unless you count it being previously released on the Breadcrumps EP as it being a cover for some reason.

Re: I Hate You

So "I Hate You" appears to be a song about the ACG members slagging of each other and everyone singing on it, right?
"You Wanted the Best" by KISS also features the original members sharing vocals for the first time and bitching about each other.

Just a IMO fun observation. :)

Re: I Hate You

So, now that "Don't Give Up" is 30 or so seconds longer, it's been given a Title Re-vamp? :bam: "Hanging On By A Thread (Don't Give Up)" Well it also has different lyrics. It seems likely to me that "Hanging on By a Thread" was the original titel, and after they'd done the different covid-related v...

Re: Social Debris

The muscianship is very good, always nice to hear Dennis and really good solo Steven. But there's something about it that only makes me think of other songs when I hear it. For example, the verses just makes me wanna sing "Addicted to Love" instead (or rather Weird Als "Addicted to Spuds" since I'm ...

Re: New single - 'Our Love Will Change The World'

I quite like it. It'll be interesting to see it in the context of the album. It's also worth noting, that while it's musically pretty much a straight cover quite a fair bit of the lyrics has been changed, the entire second verse is essentially new for example. Also noticable is that the Outrageous C...

Re: New album cover

First single is 'Rock'n'Roll' and it's yet another cover, this time that well known Detroit band Velvet Underground.... (they're from NYC) Apparently Lou Reed WROTE it in Detroit.. kinda tenuous surely... I think it's more to do with Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels putting it out as a single in '7...

Re: Old School Uncool

That album cover is uncomfortably bad. Just scrolling through the news page here it first looked like someone hacked the site with a porn ad. Even if you wanted to make that stupid choice and have a woman in bikini on the cover that's the picture you choose? A random stock softcore porn image? The a...

For what it's worth last time they collaborated, "I am Made of You" on W2MN, it was really darn good IMO.

Is this the first time the straightjacket's been used for another song than Dwight Fry?
No it isn't. It's been used in 1991 for Wind up toy.
I thought they used the cage for that?

Re: Rise - First reviews

I think they were nervous that they could pull off an album of originals and threw these needless covers on. Either that or they just wanted to include them because they enjoy playing them live. At least with cds you can burn a copy without the covers. Maybe the track running will play better. I sk...

Re: Rise - First reviews

Heroes is ok with me ( and I like Bowie) for he stayed as close to the original as possible ( the way Alice did with Eleanor Rigby). Sometimes I read here that he adds nothing to it, but, as it is very good song, it would be hard to make it better, wouldn't it ? That's the thing for me - when it's ...

six hours .. always wondered about this song : six hours till when ? why ? wash the dust from your hair now.... : what happened ?? I remember reading two theories I liked back when Dirty Diamonds was new. 1) They're having an affair and in six hours she has to return to her husband. 2) She's a ghos...

Re: Rise - First reviews

"Heroes" is one of those songs were I can understand why they would want to cover it live on tour but this studio version adds nothing new to the song and just ends up being boring.

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

Question for Swinger. If Mr Barlow is offending you so much how can you support an artist that openly makes fun of gays and transgenders? We have had The Prettiest Cop on the Block, King Of The Silver Screen, Genuine American Girl, The Saga of Jesse Jane and I think one more that escapes me. I wasn...

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

I was expecting the same backlash--and of course--it came once again in the form of YOU. If you simply found it "not funny" than why the big LGBT rant? You mean the "rant" where the point was that maybe LGBTQ people also enjoy Alice and it's silly that a bunch of old straight men sit and claim we w...
