Bed of Nails Single Review

Alice Cooper
'Bed Of Nails'
(Epic)

Oh, lots better than that last mush of pithy harmonies. This is 'Livin' On A Prayer' in overdrive. Desmond Child, have you no shame? So, anyway, in the (paraphrased) words of Big Black, it's more songs about f**king. Alice is going to, uh, drive into her or something and, apparently, he gets deeper inside than anyone else. I suppose we can be reassured that he'll never grow up, and that the flip, 'I'm Your gun', is close to superb.
