Alice Cooper – The Eyes Of Alice Cooper
TAGS:

With the comparative youngsters of the so-called New Rock Revolution currently kicking ass, it seems appropriate that panto-rock’s ultimate ugly sister should see fit to try his hand at some old-fashioned, stripped-down rock action. Recorded over a month with Godsmack producer Mudrock and a bare-bones band, The Eyes Of Alice Cooper finds the great man thoroughly revitalised. That said, while the rollicking “Detroit City” (Uncle Alice tells it like it is to the neophytes) and the whispery ghost story “This House Is Haunted” are enormous fun, there’s also some FM filler, and whether the kids will be won over remains to be seen.
