Re: Your favorite HIGHLIGHT of Alice's career...

It's impossible for me to narrow it down to just one, so here's a load! ACG: Setting eyes on them for the first time ever in Sounds circa 1971 - I was hooked. School's Out getting to number one in the UK - resulting in loads of airplay and THAT TOTP appearance. (The rictus grin on Tony Blackburn's f...

Re: Your biggest disappointment in Alice's career

The highs vastly outnumber any lows but we can always grumble. Here goes:


ACG Muscle Of Love album - from the sublime to the downright ordinary in one fell swoop. Woman Machine is as dull as ditchwater.

AC The hair-metal years. Exhibit A in any 'crimes against music' trial.

Re: School's Out cover production/assembly

School's Out was the first AC album I ever purchased, back in those glorious summer days of 1972. I bought it at my local Boots the Chemist branch - in the days when virtually every shop seemed to sell records. What I didn't realize though was that there would be something a bit, er, extra included....

Re: why do people hate ACAS?

Well - I like the cover, the booklet and the songs. I like Alice's vocals, the instrumentation and the production. ACAS would rank in my top ten all-time AC albums and, after Brutal Planet, I rate it his best album since the millennium. So, I guess I'm part of that non-vocal group that actually LOVE...

Re: Which are YOUR comeback albums?

Comeback 1 - Constrictor! I'd bought all AC's previous studio albums (although L&W left me nonplussed) but couldn't stand Flush The Fashion. Clones/Pain aside I hated the tinny sound and banal lyrics. Missed out on next three albums but decided to take a punt on Constrictor as it was also AC's comeb...

Re: new album ?

Frankly, I'm just thankful that Alice is still regularly releasing albums - whatever sort they are! The beauty with AC is that there's such a large, diverse, back catalogue that if you don't like the new one then there are plenty of oldies to go back to; until he releases another one that you do lik...

Re: Your Favorite and Least Favorite ACG Album/ Solo

ACG Favourite - Killer THE benchmark record against which all their/his other albums can be measured. Everyone and everything is firing on all cylinders here. It's not just an album but an experience and still sends shivers down my spine 42 years after buying the original vinyl! Having said that it ...

Re: Alice Voted Top Act

Hi, I'm back! I posted the original topic yesterday but unfortunately registered under a username almost identical to that of an existing member. Apologies all round - I've had my original account deleted and now have a new username! To re-cap the original post:- Alice has been voted the top act at ...
