Mark (Singing 'Born To Be My Baby' over the music): This is more like Bon Jovi than Bon Jovi . . . it's Bon Jovi with a sore throat! 'Poison' sounded like Bon Jovi and 'Bed Of Nails' sounded like 'Livin' On A Prayer', now this sounds like 'BTBMB'. It's a good song but it sounds like a revamp of something else. He'll be at Vegas soon doing a cabaret spot!
Ian: It's slightly formularised and I don't like the way Alice Cooper has changed from being a group and become just him. It isn't as good as 'Poison' or his earlier stuff, which I really like, but I'm glad he's back.
