The year is 1980--it's a new decade and Alice Cooper rides the New Wave of music to come up with a fresh twist on his now-formulaic approach to album-making. "Flsuh the Fashion" is a mix of then-trendy keyboard-heavy, pogo-inducing sounds with his patented sardonic rock numbers.

The all-too-short but great opener "Talk Talk" segues perfectly into this album's big hit single "Clones (We're All)" which was a Top-5 smash here in July 1980. "Clones" features an offbeat, otherworldy keyboard line that meshes perfectly with the songs paranoid lyrics. It's one of Alice's strongest performances on record IMO; but the album's best cut is definitely the sorrowful rocker "Pain". The chain-gang rhythm and stinging guitars punctuate what are some of Alice's best lyrics ever. This may be my favorite solo Alice song, period.

The remainder of the album is less inspired but still a good listen. We get more new-wave on "Aspirin Damage" and "Nuclear Infected"; upbeat rock ditty "Leather Boots" and average rock-and-roll numbers "Grim Facts", "Model Citizen", "Headlines" and "Dance Yourself to Death", the latter being the best of the lot with its bluesy tempo and let's-diss-the-parents attitude.

Some filler on this one, but the several outstanding numbers make it essential listening for Alice fans.

After "Goes to Hell", "Lace & Whiskey", and "From the Inside", it was quite a shock for Alice to put together a solid rock album. He, of course, was trying to get on the punk rock/new wave explosion and actually succeeded. The music is tight and fast -- the album clocks in at under 29 minutes! It's not a perfect album -- hence, only 4 stars. But it contains some of Alice's best material since "Billion Dollar Babies" including the songs "Talk Talk", "Clones", "Pain", "Dance Yourself to Death", "Aspirin Damage", "Leather Boots", "Model Citizen", and "Headlines". Unlike so many of his '80s albums, to include "Special Forces", "Zipper", and "DaDa", the humour in the songs actually works -- staying sharp and subtle -- and not stupid or overly silly like the other aforementioned albums. In 1980, this album restored my faith that Alice could still produce worthwhile albums and left me in anticipation of Alice's next release (which was to be "Special Forces" -- so much for faith). Highly recommended!

After tripping throught the insane asylum on FROM THE INSIDE, Alice Cooper was again unleashed on the waiting world.New wave was in(B-52s,The Cars,Gary Numan)and Alice was determined not to become a repetitive oldies act.Therefore,he married the Alice Cooper sly observations of society with a new wave sound.To help him was acclaimed producer Roy Thomas Baker(Queen,Cars).Each song is short,full of sharp sharp wit and gets to the point. CLONES should have been a bigger hit than it was around the world.PAIN is Alice at his most lrical:think of pain as a person,and you'll get half of what he's aiming at.MODEL CITIZEN is a parody of his "celebrity squares/golf with the stars" image;and HEADLINES jokingly tells of how he got where he was. NUCLEAR INFECTED plays on the time's reactor meltdown fears. CLONES should make us take a second look at what we're attempting in science nowadays.DANCE YOURSELF TO DEATH has Alice's extremely liberated parents embarassing him!FLUSH THE FASHION is an underrated gem in the Cooper discography,even though it officially marked the start of the Coop's years in the wildrness(YEAH,RIGHT!)Buy FLUSH THE FASHION;he wasn't all snakes and spiders,you know.

The critics have always been cruel to "Flush The Fashion" and once again they've proven their ignorance. This is a remarkable and risky adventure that never got the praise it deserved.
Alice obviously knew the pitfalls of not changing his musical direction, and this brave attempt at doing just that is a pure joy to hear. Some of "The Coop's" best work is on this disk and unfortunately due to it's "import only" status many will not get to experience the greatness within.
With gusto Cooper tries his sly hand at the Punk and New Wave experience and clearly succeeds. The one's who panned this effort when it was first released were clueless that Alice is one of Punk's founding fathers.
In Short:
This disc tears it up, spits it out and swallows again...you will not be disappointed!

READY FOR THE ROCK'N'ROLL SPRINT OF YOUR LIFE? then hold tight as alice practically cuts you up and glues you into his own pastice track laden magazine of the ups, downs and the in your face complexities of life! This album really is a blitz of short sharp rock classicks. Yes rock, the synth fits in perfectly with every cliched rock riff ever percieved! Every track is a classick, but the ones that really stick out are pain, asprin damage, the 100mph leather boots, and the single lift from the album clones {were all}. Really, if you drive a fast car,or maybe you want to get a buzz before you hit the town, stick this album on the player and watch your windows melt.
