Re: Album opinion change

I've only changed my mind on Dragontown which with age ive come to like less, it just does not age well unlike BP. Minus d****r, the album is not bad. I can't even say it. :x Haha that track is actually one of the better ones imo. Almost sounds like it was written for Brutal Planet. Listening to it...

Re: Album opinion change

I've only changed my mind on Dragontown which with age ive come to like less, it just does not age well unlike BP. I think post BP was full of a lot of material that does not hit the spot, maybe a song here and there. the last EP was fantastic though so I hope Detroit Stories is an album of original...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Nope which is a bummer as all momentum for me has gone before I get the vinyl, I think if they had managed ot keep a B side unheard i'd still be excited.

biblical touch

Ignoring WTMN does anyone else think The Last Temptation and Brutal Planet are both his strongest solo albums lyrically and musically? They seem to have the clearest influence from his personal beliefs and are both solid albums...I know Dragon town was the BP follow up but imo it is just not a worth...

Re: Old School Uncool

I have not bothered with any of the OG solo stuff (outside Alice) other than Battle Axe which everyone seems to agree is decent enough. In fact for me it was a must to complete the AC album collection. This thread has had me going on YT and confirming that I have not missed anything, Bones From The ...

Re: Alice Unplugged

Worth a thought for the replies...Ha thrill my gorilla maybe could go a miss but a lot from the ACG years would work and plenty up until the end of the black out years, then the odd track here and there after. As Vineraven suggested the Gothic setting could still really work. I guess it would only s...

Alice Unplugged

Lots of artost release one of these. Could it work?

I think if he stuck to the deeper tones with the odd rasp then yeah. But thats only with a conventional unplugged album.

Alice unplugged with some harpsichord for example would be a game changer :rotfl:

Re: Goes To Hell album cover

Look at the studio album that followed it. Perhaps it was Warner insisting on the use of photography from his peak period due to what they could see as a decline coming?

Personally I like the album and have never until now considered the art work too much although have always thought it looked basic.

Re: 65 Quid For an Autograph!

Thats not a bad deal, people pay £50 for a signed vinyl via official artists shops these days, £65 to meet Alice and get a sig is no bad, maybe try and have a mate on standby who can sneak a mobile photo of you talking to him? On the subject of signed albums maybe with lockdown Alice will be working...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Could Hanging By A Thread be a left over from Brutal Planet that eventually became "It's The Little Things"? So then the band thought it would be cool to use the Pick Up The Bones vibe for the reasons I mentioned earlier?

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Now that I have had a few glasses of clarity I think the fact the guitar riff is similar to pick up the bones is on purpose. Pick up the bones was a song about despair. This song is about hope, even in that despair there is hope.

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Showing on ear music (in UK) as in stock, it lets you order 10, not that I have. But I hope that person on ebay ends up with a lot of vinyl he cant flog for anything more than he paid :rotfl:

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Bit disappointing to see the pre-orders pop up on ebay for a profit and on FB fan pages folk are complaining they cant get one. I know it is not Alice's fault or the Alice camp at fault but it sucks that genuine fans are being scalped for vinyl, sometimes the internet can be a pain in the ass.

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

I take it the hand written message from Alice on the pic disc will be a copy...I know artists are releasing a lot of hand signed stuff right now (apart from Ozzy busted with autopen) but cant see a couple thousand hand written messages (or whatever the actual number is)

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Id be amazed if it went viral...sadly as bad as it sounds this is Alice not Dua Lipa...But its new music ahead of the album, will be good i'm sure, might never see a stage but at least he is still giving us music, and that's the key i think. Just a thought but like the last stage show and set list, ...
