I did earlier today myself (i was tricked into it!). I really like the sound personally. it has a great classic Alice feel to it imo. The two that stand out for me are salvation and along came a spider

I really hope there is a video...or...better yet...I know I'm dreaming here but why not?

A movie, Staring Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie/director/producer...Calico could be in there, maybe even Ozzy if he can remember some lines. (no Ozz not do lines...remember lines) Throw slash in there with a cameo.
erm but none of these are actors, well in the movie sense anyway.

So far, In touch with you Feminine Side, Killed By Love, and Salvation sound the most memorable to me. They will be solid tracks.

Wake the Dead sounds the weakest track to me. None of them sound bad, but WTD sounds the weakest. All the other songs sound cool, but the ones I mentioned above sound the most interesting and memorable. The epilogue also sounded cool. Catch me if you can sounds as if it will be about as good as Vengeance.

From these samples alone I can be sure this will be a very good and consistent album.

It sounds remarkable. Sort of like Killer meets Dada. The prologue sounds a lot like the title track from Dada. BRILLIANT!

First reaction is that it sounds pretty good. I understand FeezleNuts reaction. I am still hoping for some songs that have a Stephen, Gail, Dragontown type slow creepy part to them.

I also got a bit of a 70's vibe on some of the songs. This might turn out to be a very different album for Alice (a combination of several earlier styles). I'm still excited. :clap:

I've heard the album and it rocks.
It sounds different to anything else Alice has done, kind of a mix of the 70's Alice sound in places mixed with something more modern...it's unique sounding.
If you're expecting a goofy Halloween slasher type thing, or an ultra-dark Brutal Planet-esque experience, you will be disappointed. This is something all new, totally unique and it rocks.
I'm looking forward to adding the CD to my collection.

I have to say I'm not a fan of albums that give you 30 seconds of every song before its officially released. The bits you hear may influence your tastes at the beginning, but the concept hasn't been explored fully in those bits; they're out of context as far as I'm concerned.

I know, I haven't listened to anything yet, but as an outsider I wonder if small samples are influencing the big picture. I'm not saying the songs won't be bad or deserving of less merit... I just want to give it a fair shake all at once.

I'll shut up now. :grin:
If I may put forward a slice of personal colostomy...

Ok people here s my quick review


The coop set this album up with a fantastic theme and quotes like lots of hits

Ok like most people at sickthings im buying the album no matter what as its a coop album and im digging the whole idea of the album .


But this album falls short , very short of what i was thinking it would and could have been .

The theme and lyric content just scream for some eerie twists maybe a dash of the coop weirdness we all love . To my ear much of the music seems very disconnected to the theme and lyrics . Many of the tunes are for the lack of a better word , bland basic rock tunes that go nowhere , there s no tension and release etc . A few tunes like slavation and i am the spider are good but overall to me most tunes sound like theve been rushed and are just there as filler .


I love every coop album even the misunderstood works of art like Da Da , special forces , zipper , goes to hell etc .

So i hate to say this , but imho as an overall album , for me its easy one of the coops worst efforts . uninspired material , average hooks , it s almost as if the coop knew he had a great theme and thought that would be enough to carry the album .

In the end i guess the coop got what he was aiming for , and many people will enjoy the album so thats all that matters .
