I give it a 6/10. This album has some really cool songs, but on a whole, most of them feel like fillers. I keep playing it to see if I will change my mind and it hasn't. The creativity of Alice's of brilliance is just not there....I like W2MN much better!!!!!!!!! In fact I happen to love W2MN.,,,,sorry.

I don't think the media is trying to make it look like everybody is racist, bigoted, or transphobic. I think when you have politicians that are continuously speaking out against and making it extremely hard for these people to be treated equally, and you have supremacists of any kind shouting in agreeance, that it should be viewed as a major issue.

It doesn't mean that the majority of people, and it is probably not even 10% of the population that feels this way, but when the system is run by less than 1% of the population and many of them have these ideologies and are continuously trying to legislate people's lifestyles, it should be talked about by the media until that kind of pathetic, over-reaching style of governing the people is eradicated.

Hell yeah! media hatred is brought on by dictators. It's a tactic so you think that the only truth is coming out of them. This was how Hitler was born........oh humans, they are such easy prey.

To me this is one of the beter solo efforts and it is still getting better...could do without rats however..
And i even like the cover..far better than the w2mnm2 cover imo.

Now that we're down the road a piece from the release of Paranormal, there's three or four songs I still listen to. Maybe releasing an EP every year would be a good idea. In the course of the past 6 years since W2MN, we would have gotten 24 songs instead of 12. And the quality would probably be much higher, because the focus would be on making those 4 songs their very best. With his busy schedule, this seems much more do-able.

If anyone is interested, then my review of Paranormal can be found here:

http://welcometomynightmare.co.uk/reviews/paranormal/

In short, I gave it a solid 8 out of 10.

I don't know how George Harrison was sued for "My Sweet Lord" sounding too much like "He's So Fine" by the Chiffons but Alice walks away scot-free from "his" "Paranoic Personality" not sounding exactly like "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour?

:bam: Turrible song and album...


Probably because it doesn’t sound “exactly” like it

Not sure. I suppose I should, but I was partially waiting to see what others thought first. I did the initial impressions thing on the news page after the press release.

Paranormal has a simpler arrangement of instruments, and sounds much better than, W2MN - I really like Alice's voice, the drums and the guitars for the most part.

There are 4 songs I don't care for at all - GAG being the worst of the bunch, followed by HW, SOA and FIL.

New rating: 5/5 (When compared against any rock album released in the past 35 years). Paranormal is easily his best overall solo record - and that's saying a lot.

I agree with Padre
his best solo effort whatsoever imo. No fillers (except perhaps Rats).
Recently read another review stating that Alice made a "shockingly good record" , and a comment from a buyer stating that "should this be the last album ever made by Alice" , he could live with that !

Wow, that shows how subjective music is.I think the new album is okay but I don't love it. I am a bigger fan of his solo work than the original band (though I love it all) but I can think of a ton of his solo albums I prefer over Paranormal and that includes its predecessor W2MN.

Agreed. Rats is filler-like to me, although no tracks are unlistenable, there are some that just don't catch my ears. Again, the sound of the recording is more in my wheelhouse than anything he's done in decades. Kinda hope he's got a few more albums in him at this rate.

Rats is one of the best songs on the album. Thunders along.

+1 from me.

I personally thought Private Public Breakdown and Dynamite Road were the only real weak links on the album.
