Alice Cooper: Classic or Dud??

Hi! Now I think Alice Cooper is great! And I would recommend "Goes to Hell" as an album you should own! So...classic or dud?

jel, Wednesday, 21 February 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Unquestionably classic with the original band, middling in the late seventies, fairly undistinguished since. He ended up working with Desmond Fucking Child, which is always A Bad Sign. Still, a worthy thing at the start, and from what friends who remember those days tell me, the sheer amount of fear and loathing he generated among Concerned Parents and Newly Christened Rock Scholars alike make anything Marilyn Manson and Eminem have done combined look utterly mild. I'd go for albums like _Killer_ and _Billion Dollar Babies_ in a heartbeat.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 21 February 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

"Goes To Hell", I dunno, that's kind of some proto-crypto-Meatloaf shit. The original band stuff tho', hell yeah. "Love It To Death" & "Killer" are 2 of the best hard rock albums of the '70s ( = ever).

Duane Zarakov, Wednesday, 21 February 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Dud.

Omar, Thursday, 22 February 2001 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link

Early 70's stuff is pure rock'n'roll genius, up until Welcome to My Nightmare. Also put out fantastic concept album on music-making computers in 80's - Dada, which is absolutely fantastic. Lots of classic stuff and nearly an equal amount of dud.

Pre/including-Welcome To My Nightmare = Classic, Post-Welcome To My Nightmare, horrible.

Helltime Producto (Pavlik), Sunday, 22 December 2002 09:18 (sixteen years ago) link

I was listening to Love It To Death when I noticed this thread. CLASSIC. First two albums (Pretties For You & Easy Action) - nicely weird. Next few (Love It To Death, Killers, School's Out) some of the best straight-up rock ever. Next couple (Billion Dollar Babies, Muscle of Love) damned good. After that, it gets a bit silly and contrived, with the occasion good song here and there. His 80s metal is obviously horrificly bad.

Dave Fischer, Sunday, 22 December 2002 15:08 (sixteen years ago) link

bloody hell, it's Missta Helltime Producto who's taken the words straight outta my mouth this time
yeah, "Welcome" was still good, the next one - "...Whisky", something? - wasn't worth 'possum shit

I must have responded to one of the olther Alice Cooper threads. Anyway, I don't care for "Nightmare". Even thought the concept and production are similar to say "Billion Dollar Babies", the band sounds like Hollywood's version of rock. Then again, I haven't played it in years. Post "Nightmare" does contain a ton of schlock, but do search "Flush the Fashion".

Sean (Sean), Monday, 23 December 2002 03:22 (sixteen years ago) link

FLUSH THE FASHION is fucking brilliant in an unintentionally hilarious manner!

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Monday, 23 December 2002 20:54 (sixteen years ago) link

I owned FLUSH THE FASHION as a teenager. "Dance Yourself To Death" is an awful song with a Family Ties-type setup (the kid's embarrassed by his partying parents, one of whom flaunts a T-shirt that reads "Gimme Pot, Not Booze"). "Clones (We're All)" is a hilariously hamfisted take on Devo/Numan. Oh, and this LP marked the first time I ever heard "Talk Talk."

SO i finally got meself "Love it to Death", "Killer", "School's Out", "Billion Dollar Babies", "Muscle of Love", and some greatest hits. Me happy.

Are "Pretties For You" and "Easy Action" essential purchases? I'm waiting until "Welcome to my Nightmare" or the later ones. are the late 70s ones alright?

donut bitch (donut), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 00:25 (fifteen years ago) link

I just remembered some Beat Club performance footage of Alice Cooper, and just thought.. "Damn, Sonic Youth totally just ripped off that rock sound, bare and clean." Anyone know what album/era of Alice Cooper this would have been?

donut bitch (donut), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 00:26 (fifteen years ago) link

Exactly what Ned said. Billion Dollar Babies and Killer are his best.

"Telephone is ringing..."

Francis Watlington (Francis Watlington), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 01:09 (fifteen years ago) link

One of the greatest ever. The orginal line-up is awesome, and Alice-the-singer is practically my role model. Flush the Fashion is (still) great, btw.

Sean (Sean), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 01:29 (fifteen years ago) link

classic, though whenever I'm in this kinda mood I end up putting on the NY Dolls Rock & Roll rather than Alice's Greatest Hits.

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 01:34 (fifteen years ago) link

Donut: I never heard Easy Action, but Pretties is skipable. The hadn't really developed their songwriting or band sound at that point. Some of it is kinda psychedelic. From Nightmare onward the LPs were definately less raw, but not bad. You've got all the good ones. I think Lace and Whiskey was mostly outtakes from Nightmare, but in a way it's better because it's less theatrical and more rocking. Rocking in a pro forma kind of way though. From the Inside has Bernie Taupin lyrics but even more canned-sounding production. For a fan, it's listenable but not essential.

Sean (Sean), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 01:38 (fifteen years ago) link

Yay DB! What a good person you are. But you didn't get the stuff I had on the box set when you were down here? SHAME. ;-)

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 5 November 2003 06:39 (fifteen years ago) link

I concur that the first 2 are non-essential. But they do have their moments.

Has anyone else seen this new Staples commercial with Alice Cooper? He's going back-to-school shopping with his 'daughter' (it could really be his daughter, but I have no idea, so I'm assuming it's an actress) and she looks sulky and says "I thought you said 'School's out forever.'" And Alice says, "No, what I actually said was 'School's out for SUMMER'" and continues picking up school supplies. Now, I'm no Alice Cooper expert, but don't the lyrics go "School's out for summer/School's out forever"? Is Alice Cooper willfully misquoting his own lyrics for a buck?

But seriously...

A co-worker of a certain age want to a show last week, and apparently the guillotine was nowhere in sight. Does this mean that "Good Alice" has finally won out?

briania (briania), Thursday, 26 August 2004 13:38 (fifteen years ago) link

Alice has gone all revisionist of late. He now prefers to harkin back to his "garage" days (ala Pretties For You), pre-guillotine era.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Thursday, 26 August 2004 16:38 (fifteen years ago) link

I think I have around 11 AC albums now...

Flush the Fashion is great because Alice Cooper invented electroclash.

"From the Inside" is a favourite, Tauplin is the man!

jel -- (jel), Thursday, 26 August 2004 16:46 (fifteen years ago) link

You know, I think that any artist who can be described as having a "pre-guillotine era" is classic any day of the week.

Pleasant Plains (Pleasant Plains), Thursday, 26 August 2004 16:56 (fifteen years ago) link

All the albums with the original line up are fantastic, muscle of love does have its not-so-good moments though.

Dennis Dunaway is without a doubt the greatest, individual sounding and [anti]-melodic bass player OF AAALLL TIIIIIME!!!!!!!!

p.s i urge anyone who rates alice cooper on the cheese rock hes been doing for the last 20-odd years to buy the alice cooper cd that you always see going for about £2.99 in record shops. its usually called Nobody Likes Me,Nobody Like Me,Snorting Anthrax or 1969 Toronto Rock N Roll Revival. its garagy trashy psycho-delia. (ignore the 'going to the river' and 'ain't that just like a woman' tracks though cos they've got nothing to do with alice cooper as far as i know. UNLESS they are Gene Vincent tracks as the Alice Cooper group played as GV's backing band at the very same festival. it WAS going to be The Doors but they didn't for some reason)

trust me it'll be the best bargain you've ever bargained on!

Mr Demeanor, Sunday, 5 June 2005 12:00 (fourteen years ago) link

That's Ronnie Hawkins on those two tracks, Mr. D. And yeah, I've seen that thing for sale under DOZENS of titles. All of which (as well as wrongly identifying those two Hawkins songs) even mistitle every ACTUAL Alice song! Not that most people would know, since those AC songs are (almost) entirely taken from their first two LPs, long out of print. And the actual titles are super-weird anyways and seemingly have nothing to do with the actual lyrics, when there are any.

CLASSIC for the first four albums, including those bizarre & hard-to-find first two (which many people dislike but not me.) LESS CLASSIC but still fair-to-great for the next four. After that, mostly DUD, tho with the occasional great moment. ("Clones" aside, I've never heard Flush The Fashion myself, but lotsa people like it so I give it the benefit of the doubt.)

There's a great live album recorded at the Whisky in '69 which is all songs from the first album. I love their early psycho-delic garage sound as Myonga called it. 30 Seconds Before the Worm, Today Mueller, BB on Mars... great stuff.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Sunday, 5 June 2005 17:19 (fourteen years ago) link

OK, voice of dissent here. I think Pretties for You is utter crap - one of the worst psychedelic albums. Rather listen to Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida or 1st Vanilla Fudge just about any day.

Tim Ellison (Tim Ellison), Sunday, 5 June 2005 17:36 (fourteen years ago) link

I've not heard much AC, but my older brother taught me to sing "Poison" when I was 5. 15 years later, I still remember every word despite not having heard it for said amount of time. This annoys me, I don't know why.

(Yes, I'm a very young person.)

walter kranz (walterkranz), Sunday, 5 June 2005 19:00 (fourteen years ago) link

Wow, no love for Pretties For You and Easy Action at all... I've long since gotten those CDs and I think they both might be two of my faves of the bunch...

Pretties For You sounds like a Beatles-cum-Zappa album but in mostly great ways. the recording quality is inconsistent, but the songs are quite solid.. the best one is "Levity Ball"..

Easy Action seers all the way through. "Lay Down And Die, Goodbye" is Alice's best song, period.

donut debonair (donut), Monday, 6 June 2005 00:24 (fourteen years ago) link

I don't actually own the first album and it's been a while since I heard it but from what I remember, the versions on that '69 live CD are way better in terms of both recording quality & performance. It reminds me a lot of the sound of the Deviants' #3.

Hmmmmm (jamiesummerz), Tuesday, 18 December 2018 15:16 (nine months ago) link

Billion Dollar Babies is top tier imo
The songs aren't all good but the really good ones (including title track, Hello Hooray) always put me in a good mood. LOVE Hello Hooray!!!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 18 December 2018 15:37 (nine months ago) link

If we're including solo Alice, hen Welcome to My Nightmare and DaDa are easy inclusions in the top tier for me.

I'm not much into 1976-1979 Alice. The coked up New Wave blackout years (1980-1982) are far more interesting, if spotty. I like some tracks from the hair metal period (1986-1991) although not entire albums. I suspect only the real absolute die hards are familiar with his work after 1994.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 18 December 2018 15:48 (nine months ago) link

Huh, I've never heard that version of 'Hello Hooray' until now... I've heard the 1968 Judy Collins version (which is where I think Cooper/Ezrin got the song) and it really is nothing like Cooper's. They really made that song their own.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 18 December 2018 15:56 (nine months ago) link

― eva logorrhea (bendy), Tuesday, December 18, 2018 2:16 PM (one hour ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

School's Out was a bit of a departure for them in many ways - the rock gets toned down a touch and it starts to get a little more theatrical (hammered home by the brief West Side Story cover and things like 'Blue Turk' and 'Grande Finale') and there's more contributions from session musicians and more emphasis on production. It feels less sinister than the LP's before it and even the one after.

However! Dunaway's bass playing throughout is stunning and 'My Stars' is one of the very best Cooper songs, IMO.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christ (Tom D.), Tuesday, 18 December 2018 16:43 (nine months ago) link

man, its so peculiar to me that anyone after the fact thinks that this band was at any time "the best rock band in the world," or even particularly good. Neal Smith, Buxton…fuck, all of the four instrumentalists' shit is pretty weak. Grand Funk and this band got the payday and acclaim that I would rather the Stooges and MC5 received. I watch that footage upthread, and I'm forever waiting around for this band to be revealed as the American Sabbath. But I always end up thinking it was correct for him to leave those guys behind, and I don't believe there's any other circumstance where I agree with "you're the star, you're the one with talent, ditch those losers." I'm surely the only ILMnik who thinks KIss is a sesquidillion times better than the Alice Cooper band.

veronica moser, Tuesday, 18 December 2018 20:27 (nine months ago) link

I hope you are! Neal Smith was a great drummer and Dunaway churned out great bassline after great bassline, Glen Buxton was no virtuoso admittedly.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christ (Tom D.), Tuesday, 18 December 2018 23:21 (nine months ago) link

Yeah, Cooper's rhythm section was truly great and Michael Bruce was largely responsible for a lot of the evergreen Cooper classics that the solo Alice would never dream of leaving out of his live set.

Also, when listening to 'Halo of Flies', the band that I'm hearing doesn't square up with what veronica moser is saying/describing at all.

five months pass...

Listening a really nice 1st press Love It To Death I got for a song rn. Having never really gone post the hits until recently, I'm amazed how garage-y they still were. Perhaps the most Nuggets-ish of all the big early Hard Rock/Metal bands? "Black Juju" could pass for the Chocolate Watchband!

a large tuna called “Justice” (C. Grisso/McCain), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 21:38 (three months ago) link

Absolutely! Garage-y while still having a decent degree of musicianship, I think, particularly the rhythm section of Dunaway and Smith. Bob Ezrin really worked wonders in keeping this band focused - apparently, he helped to tighten up 'I'm Eighteen' a great deal for one. I like Welcome to My Nightmare and - much later - DaDa a lot as "solo" Cooper collaborations with Ezrin and Dick Wagner, but I wish the band would have just taken a year off and realised that the theatrics were as much a part of the bands identity as the music.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 21:46 (three months ago) link

Bob Ezrin fingerprints are on the mixing board when the classic lineups of Alice Cooper, Kiss and Pink Floyd came apart (at least for the first time).
