Re: Hollywood Vampires meet and greet.

It was about $1500 or 3 times a normal Alice meet and greet. A fan would get so much more out of 3 AC meet and greets than 1 AC meet and greet. Then again, maybe they've received similar feedback and improved the process a little bit. Then again again, maybe not.

Re: OGs on the next Alice album

For those who aren't satisfied with the OGs only doing three tracks per album, if you make them all into one playlist, by the time the new album drops, there should be enough OG tracks to make up a faux album if that helps!

Re: Hollywood Vampires meet and greet.

I hesitate to say anything that could cost Alice business, but for me the Vampires meet and greet was not worth the money. It was basically in and out in 2 minutes. I was trying to chat Alice up and we both are making goofy faces in the pictures as a result. I waited in line for quite a long time as...

Re: Breadcrumbs

I loved Paranormal - listened maybe 50 times. Maybe more. Rise isn’t bad, but I haven’t listened to it since the week it came out. I like this EP more than anything on Rise. Production in general is great. Love the guitars. Love the backing vocals - they compliment Alice’s voice nicely. In terms of ...

Re: Rise - First reviews

Like others, I am struck by Congratulations. Definitely unique. Overall, it’s a good album with more surprises than the average Alice Cooper album. It’s really nice having some vocal variety between Depp on Heroes and People Who Died, Perry on Can’t put your arms around a memory, and Tommy on Git fr...

Re: Vampires Who's Laughing Now?

On first listen I was not in love, but I've listened to it a bunch of times now and it's definitely growing on me. Some of the lyrics are questionable and some production choices cheapen the sound a bit, but it is a welcome departure from the trusty Alice / Ezrin sound. It's also pretty exciting tha...

Re: Paranormal (Tour Edition)

I saw the track list as well and it’s odd that they added the two band songs at the end of the album, but on the vinyl, they’re both sequenced before the Sound of A. Who is making these decisions? Personally, I’ve gotten so used to their placement on the vinyl that it’s the only version in my mind. ...

Re: Thoughts On And Ranking The New Album

Listening to Paranormal for the first time through in a while and all I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Anyone can say what they want, but for a 69 year old rockstar to release one of the - arguably - best solo albums of his career, that’s pretty big miracle. How can we ask for more?

Re: Am I The Only One Who Liked W2MN?

W2MN is a great album and I think why a lot of people give a snub is because it's compared to the first.......Don't!!!! look at it as it's own separate entity. That would be easier if it weren't for all of the musical tie-ins, like I am Made of You (which is literally made of the Steven melody), Ni...

Re: Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Edgar Winter North American T

Saw the show in Mansfield, Massachusetts last night. First of all, Edgar Winter was great. Super fun warm-up that got us really excited for the rest of the show. Alice and band were in top form. Everything sounded great, including WOMD and Paranoiac Personality. The truncated set and limited space o...

Oh god yes. If any of you are not aware of Maron, he has a tendency to dig deep and pull much more humanity out of celebrities than they are usually willing to share. I'm sure this will be great.

Re: Parnormal Lyrics Help!!

Si mentioned that the lyrics on the CD are too tiny to read. They are plastered on the disk sleeves of the vinyl version. Assuming they are (mostly) accurate, I can take some hi-rez snaps of them and post them tonight if you like.

Re: Thoughts On And Ranking The New Album

Only bought the CD today-honest. HMV York and the guy behind the counter said the CD was flying off the shelves- I thought I had misheard him but No it apparently has been selling well - the shelves pretty well stocked too. Anyway, I am very entertained by this Album-there are a lot of influences o...

I'm very tempted to buy the vinyl but my record player, while ok, isn't great and I play through a soundbar so I'm not sure the quality would be better. Anyone got any advice Can you plug headphones into your turntable/amplifier? A decent pair of headphones is all you need. Even on a not so great r...

Another example of the issue. Here's a Spectral of 'Fireball' I did last night.

Re: Vinyl rip vs. 24-bit Studio Masters

I would be interested in sharing our results to compare what we've all captured, as this is really my first attempt at recording vinyl. I've had the equipment to do 24/96 recording but my turntable has been boxed up for the last 3 years. I very meticulously set the levels and recorded each side. Eve...

Vinyl rip vs. 24-bit Studio Masters

Hi all. I thought I'd share this. I ripped my vinyl today and under-laid the 24-bit studio tracks to align the start and stop points of each song, to splice the different takes of each side. Take a look at the difference in dynamic range between the vinyl and 24-bit version (presumably same as CD an...
