Re: A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris DVD / Blu-Ray release

That's just par for the course for Amazon in Canada. I pre-ordered two releases dropping today; one of them is in stock but Amazon has no shipping date for it, and the other Amazon says they have no idea when they're getting it. This happens pretty much every couple of weeks for me. Can't comment on...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

I had the exact same thought about that song while listening to it. I felt it to be a bit for FTF than ZCS, but it definitely fits in that era.

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

This band meeting has been amazing to watch. Definitely some of the best AC content I've seen.

Re: Detroit Stories Review

I've listened to the album twice now and will fully admit that it's much better than I thought it would be. I still think it's his worst album in 40 years and it doesn't really sound that much like Alice Cooper. I agree with others that if he'd cut the cover songs, it would be better - the originals...

Re: Social Debris

Listening to the previews of each of the songs, I think the album will work better in the full context than any of the singles did, but it still sounds like it will fall short of everything he's done over the last 40ish years. From what I've heard (which obviously isn't everything), the only part th...

Re: Great AC songs (that aren't)

I've always thought that Lost Reflection by Crimson Glory was 100% inspired by Alice Cooper. No other fans of the band seem to mention Alice when they listen to this song, but Alice could easily sing the first half of this song and it would fit on most of his albums.

Re: Social Debris

I am starting to wonder that Steven Crayns guitar solo has created some kind of mass hysteria here. If it wasn't him would there have been so much of a fuss for this track? Suddenly " the band " are being lauded as not being washed up and this is the best thing since sliced bread and how about a fu...

Re: New single - 'Our Love Will Change The World'

This might be the worst song to appear on an AC record. Even if the original songs on this album end up being good (and I have faith because I do like Don't Give Up), when am I ever going to want to spin it with how lame the opening to this album is?

Re: New single - 'Our Love Will Change The World'

I saw this news yesterday and had already forgotten he was releasing the new single tomorrow within one day. I've never had this little enthusiasm for a new Alice record - perhaps because it's not even really an Alice record. He's just singing on it.

Re: Detroit Stories first song "Rock 'N' Roll" to be available Fri 11-13-20

Seems I've enjoyed this less than most here. I've never heard the original, but the song feels lethargic and safe. Alice does something cool with his voice a couple of times, and I liked the guitar solos, but this is a weak opening track. I can't help but feel that if Chuck/Nita/Ryan were involved i...

Re: New album cover

Any thoughts on if there will also be a CD of that Paris show? I've only bought a few of the live albums in recent years because there are so many, so I wouldn't mind getting the CD in addition to the blu-ray. Also, I'll echo the crowd and say Alice needs to drop the covers. I wrote a super long art...

I was a bit worried seeing the discussion here, but I love the new art (presuming that is the final cover)! Definitely my favourite one in a while (maybe since Brutal Planet).

Re: Alice Songs You Like More Than Most Other Fans Do

Alice has such a diverse catalogue that I feel like it's hard to say what most fans like outside of the classic albums. That said, here are some I really dig: Why Trust You - glad to see this one get another mention. This thing is overflowing with riffs and Alice's delivery is venomous. Dangerous To...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

I know this has been discussed a little bit already, but do we have a sense on the strategy for releasing the new album? Do we think it's ready to go and they're going to wait for things to get closer to normal? Or is it going to be released as soon as it's ready? This song has me very hyped up for ...

Re: The Alice Cooper logo

Though the first logo posted is the definitive one when I think of Alice Cooper, he doesn't quite have an iconic logo the way that bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, or Metallica do. In fact, I'd honestly never really thought of the logos on those later albums as being problematic because they se...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

The song itself is awesome. A little simple but the melodies work so well. The talking is bad though, and definitely ruins the song. It seems like it could be pretty easily reworked to remove those and be put on an album, but with the voiceovers, it definitely will get way fewer listens than without...

Re: New album.

Awesome news! It's actually been a few years since I last saw Alice live so I was looking forward to the upcoming tour, but I'm of the opinion that he should pump out as many albums as possible at this point in his career. I do think the recording getting done earlier might push up the release. Ever...

I've seen in a few places posted that VIP tickets go on sale tomorrow. The Peterborough venue seems to suggest there's a pre-sale going on Thursday instead. Anyone know how I can buy tickets tomorrow?
