Alice Cooper Show Album Review

ALICE COOPER
The Alice Cooper Show

Producer(s): Brian Christian, Bob Ezrin
Warner Bros. BSK3138

This is a pastiche of Cooper's more well-known tunes culled from his recent tour. The live versions are filled with the same excitement and emotion as the studio-cuts and are representative of the various Cooper theatrical transformations he undergoes during the course of his latest stage show production. While emphasis is placed on Cooper's vocals, the stinging guitar riffs of Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner shouldn't be over-looked. Although Cooper's extravagant visuals are as much a part of his live show as the music, this is nonetheless a superb recreation. Best cuts: "Eighteen," "Only Woman Bleed," "School's Out," "You And Me," "Under My Wheels."
