you should really have worded that better... You make it sound like its an Alice Cooper solo project.
"I’m deliriously excited to work with Alice again next week on *my* new solo project coming out in 2020"

For what it's worth last time they collaborated, "I am Made of You" on W2MN, it was really darn good IMO.
"You, sir, are a demented, sick, degenerate, barbaric, naughty freako."

21 years of sobriety almost went down the tubes. Once I heard it was Child's solo project I put the cap back on the vodka and had a cup of tea.

From a defender of trash, that sounds awesome. I am made of you was a killer tune!

Am I the only one who really disliked "I am made of you" ?

although not a typical Alice song, and somewhat bombastic, I like it. has some nice guitar playing too.
At the time it came out, there was some criticism here on the voice effect used... Strange enough, this did not happen as far as I remember when Fireball came out..
you really wouldn't understand..

Yes because on Fireball he didn't sound like some dumb ass rapper!

I actually showed disdain for Fireball as well as I Am Made Of You. While the effect on Fireball isn’t quite as destructive to the song, Ezrin and Alice could have done some kind of effect that was more natural and organic and a better fit for the song, but they took the easy way out and did some typical protools sounding effect that to me sounds cheap and lazy.

But Pitkin is right, at least he doesn’t sound like a rapper on it.

Fireball is the best song since the Brutal Planet album. Dennis wrote it ---lyrics and all--and I'm hoping it gets played live on the occasions he makes guest appearances.

Ezrin tweaked it a bit (for the better) and Alice changed a word or two...but it's all Dennis's song.

You can find his original version on YouTube.

The song is good. I hate the production of the album, and the decision to use such an unremarkable vocal effect on it.

The remake is much better than the original.
