Dont post here often but felt the need to after hearing 2 more tracks via the above link.Absolutley love the first track we have all heard and these two new ones are just as good if not better.Been an Alice fan for 36 years now and have not truly enjoyed an album since Brutal Planet,but these 3 tracks have got me very excited. I know its all about opinions and tastes and it wont be everyones cup of tea but for me all the signs are pointing to this being a very good/great album,never doubt the Coop

The first song is a bit too slick. Very catchy but a bit dad rock. Genuine American Girl seems like a lot of fun and a bit Beach Boys like. I really wish he would have not put that slant on the lyrics and hip hop should really not be mentioned in an Alice Cooper song.

I must say that I'm excited. Like he said - digesting. If Dirty Diamonds is eclectic? No. Not at all. This will be quality eclectic Cooper, like it or not. It'll fit in. I tend to love that Alice is Alice and not Aliceinthe70's. But I still can't stand the cover.

Thanks!

Title track was amazing. I didn't really like the other song very much, but maybe it will be a grower.

Alice should have worked with Tobias Forge on that first one, because it sounds like a Ghost or Subvision (or even Year Of The Goat) track. It's interesting that Deep Purple's newest album that was produced by Ezrin also has a song that sounds like Ghost too. Wasn't into the ACG track at all.

Oh wow, the clip of Paranormal sounded great! Genuine American Girl, not so much. This is a knee jerk reaction however.

Well those two tracks are heads above Paranoid . I really liked Genuine American Girl. Neal's drumming drives that song and it has that Alice Cooper Group feel to it from back in the day. My hopes have been raised.

I absolutely loved the clip of the title track "paranormal" very haunting sounding at the beginning and definitely fits it's title sounds kind of 70sish with a modern edge to it. And "genuine American girl " is great Alice's singing is great on this and title track, now I await with great anticipation for the rest of the album.

I thought all of the tracks were solid & if "Genuine American Girl" is the weakest song on the Lp (even though Billy Gibbons rocks it!) We may have something very special here. :rock:

"Genuine American Girl " is not with Billy Gibbons you're confusing this with the song he is featured on called "fallen in love and I can't get up" which si, specifically described as sounding southern rock both on the guitar sound and on Alice's vocals having southern sound as well. This what you heard is in no way a southern rock song,more in the vein of a Alice meets beach boys song for sure.

It's SO refreshing to hear more of Alice's clean voice on these clips. There were plenty of cuts on the last album that featured it too and it really gives the albums more depth and variety. I've been pining for that for aeons. It seems with the predominantly heavier stuff he's done over the last couple of decades, he's used that nasally sneer a ton. Having a little more variety in the vocals really makes for a more dynamic listen.

I dunno, maybe I'm weird for even noticing in the first place. :grin:

"Paranormal," the track, shows promise. "Geniune American Girl" = Less said, the better, in my opinion.

Umm... no I didn`t.
I said "sounding not unlike Alice singing on a real ZZ Top track, with that familiar blues swagger."

Genuine AG is very very catchy...and I noticed another "black out" era song reference with No man's Land...

Paranormal is a very haunting piece...almost dreamlike I love what I'm hearing so far

I think the title track is one of the best Alice tracks i've heard in many years. It's up there with Last Man on Earth.

The ACG track is catchy. Just a straight up rocker but nothing memorable.

I still find the title track a little disjointed.. like it doesn`t really flow between the quiet and heavy parts.
Wish I could remember where they have "stolen" the second section riff (the two repeated notes bit) from as well. It's really bugging me as I've heard it before.
