Shot in London during the 2000 world tour, Brutally Live showcases Alice Cooper doing what he's been doing better than anyone else over the past 25 years: turning a rock concert into a campy theatrical extravaganza. That he's old enough to be almost anyone in the audience's (grand?)father is quite beside the point. For Alice remains one of the few who knows that rock & roll should be fun, even if that means severed heads, gushing blood, and murdered babies. Even the fabled guillotine, from his heyday a quarter-century ago, makes an appearance. Alice also takes a shot at Marilyn Manson, Ozzy Osbourne, and Kiss by calling them "my undisciplined children."

Alice and his band rip through 105 minutes of some of his best-known songs, including "I'm 18," "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "Only Women Bleed," and the immortal anthem "School's Out," along with newer tunes like "Brutal Planet" and "Gimme" (also seen as a bonus video). The concert will surely satisfy Cooper fans, if not win him new ones; the DVD itself is a winner, with bludgeoning DTS and Dolby 5.0 Surround Sound and the choice of alternate camera angles on six of the 25 songs. --Kevin Filipski

Format: DVD
I cant say I agree that this is the ultimate Alice DVD like some have said. It was the first time i'd seen an Alice show live in full. And the sound quality is pretty darn good! I will say that this is more a musicly live show, then any previous Alice show where theatrics where involved!
Provided you liked the album Brutal Planet, then you will probably like most of the transformations into live versions! Most of them sound pretty good! The classics of Alice are preformed well. Its the songs from "Trash" and "Hey stoopid" like "poison" and "feed my frankinstein" that dont sound good. Its just because on those albums they where edited and mixed so strongly that the live versions dont have that great impact the terrific recorded versions do!
The overall show is pretty good. But it seems to have a few things that just dont go anywhere? I'm not sure what the mechanical beast at the begiing was meant to be about? but it wouldve made more sense if it actualy had somthing to do with the show! And during feed my frankinstein it wouldve been great to see Alice actualy contruct one with his magic tricks like he did years ago with "Teenage Frankinstein".
Overall the show is great music wise. But not so great theatrical wise! The bonus feature is just the video clip to "gimmie" which isnt all that worthwhile, but it would have been if theyd added a few more from the BP album! The alternate camera angles arnt worth looking at, unless your a fan of Alice and are obsessed enough to wanna watch his every move on stage, then the camera angles might be worth it for you?
I dont recomend you pay too much for this DVD. It is a good show music wise, like i said, but not theatricale wise. I hope Alice brings back his great stage perfromances he has been known to do over the years back on the next tour! And on the next DVD.

More than a decade after The Coop's last concert video ALICE COOPER TRASHES THE WORLD comes this DVD of his BRUTAL PLANET tour, filmed in London on July 19, 2000.
The stage show for the tour is Alice's usual combo of hi-tech and tack.
There are 25 tracks on this DVD, several of which the viewer can use alternate camera angles. The set list is OK- 7 BRUTAL PLANET cuts plus classics like POISON, NO MORE MR. NICE GUY and ONLY WOMEN BLEED , plus DEAD BABIES, IT'S HOT TONIGHT from the LACE AND WHISKEY album and a cover of The Who's MY GENERATION- and during the show Alice is wearing a t-shirt which says "Britney Wants Me... DEAD". Marilyn Manson needs to get a sense of humor if he wants to stick around as long as Alice has.
Sure, artists like Manson and Slipknot may be stealing some of Alice's thunder in the shock stakes; but even though Alice is one of metal's elder statesmen he can still teach these young whipper snappers a thing or two about true showmanship and PURE ENTERTAINMENT.
Special highlights include PICK UP THE BONES; a song inspired by a news item on Kosovo, which is even more chilling live, Eric Singer's brilliant drum solo with flaming sticks and Alice referring to Manson, Ozzy and Kiss as "My undisciplined children" when he sees some of the audience in Manson t-shirts. How cool is that? Also part of the show is Alice's (very cute) daughter Calico in dual roles as a "Whip dancer" and also as the nurse who does the honors during DWIGHT FRYE. I'll bet there aren't many kids who can say they get to put their Dad in a strait-jacket every night! DVD extras include a weblink and the video for GIMME.

This is the first time I'd ever seen a Alice Cooper concert. Had no idea that it was a full blown stage show, not just a music concert. I have thoroughly enjoyed this DVD at least five times and will watch it again when time prevails.
I would like to point out that the production of this video is excellent. The video portion gives you two angles, but that is not what sells me on this DVD, it's the quality, just great! The audio portion is well done also. It gives you the feeling of being in the front row. Put this DVD to a big screen tv and a good sound system, and you are there!
I just attended an Alice Cooper concert in Cincinnati last night. It was pretty much the same as what is on the Brutally Live DVD with a few exceptions. A few of his newer songs off of the Dragontown disc had been added in place of some others.
I must say that I think that the Brutally Live DVD is better than the live show I saw. Don't get me wrong, the man and his band put on a hell of a performance, but the sound in the theater was not as good as what I get from the DVD.
In summary, if you get a chance to see Alice live, do it by all means. Then buy this DVD to enjoy when you can't see him live. In either case it's entertainment money well spent.

For those of you wanting to know whether or not to purchase this DVD, here's something that might be of some help. Ingnore the negative reviews that claim the sound is awful, I took the chance on that and purchased the DVD and it sounded great. I do have high end amps and speakers, but the DVD should sound good on any system that's setup properly. Picture quality is just as good as any professionally recorded video these days. The refereces to things being a bit fuzzy is due to the type of lighting used during the show and video compression on the DVD player. My player had no problems, but my friend's player had the fuzzy stuff. To truely experience the DVD you have to listen to it in DTS. Stereo is ok, but the DTS sounded so much better.
Now, as for the show. The show was great! Of course you have to be expecting an Alice Cooper show, not the typical run-of-the-mill rock concerts they have these days. This show wasn't as theatrical as Alice's Welcome to my Nightmare, but there was still a common theme/story being told throughout the entire show. Think of it as a play, or some reasonable facimalty thereof; it's not just four fat guys on stage making a lot of noise and swearing at the croud. I've compared this to my Metallica Cunning Stunts Live show DVD, and there really is no comparison. Alice puts on a performance while other bands are just there, they really don't do anything accept walk around the stage. Alice has props, blood, costumes, babies, a couple of actors, swords, and that damn guillotine. The songs range the full 30 plus years of Alice's career. It's great to hear all the different styles of rock he went through. Several of his songs were chopped and tied together in some manner in order to tell a particular part of the story.
