By T. Gore
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Fashion Sept. 12 2000
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A CERTAIN KICK UP THE EIGHTIES FOR ALICE COOPER May 24 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alice goes punk and new wave. Dec 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
The early 80's was a strange time for Alice Cooper, as he changed his image a bit and also changed music styles, resulting in some very weird, but overlooked albums. My favorite of his "experimental" albums( which ended with 1983's "DaDa") is "Flush The Fashion".

I remember seeing the video for the song "Clones(We're All)" on T.V. with my brothers and sisters and being very shocked at the way Alice looked, dressed up in a military uniform, with a beret on his head, standing very still and looking nearly anorexic. The song itself is very catchy, however and very new wave, with it's synthesizers and all. The lyrics are interesting....I like the part where one clone has a problem with his "clone status", leading him to say, "I just wanna be myself!".
The album has ten very short songs, with practically no space between songs. The album is very short, clocking in at under 33 minutes. I think half of the album is terrific and find the other half at the very least "interesting", especially in the lyrics department. The first half of the album gets off to a great start with A.C.'s hard rock version of the MUSIC MACHINE song, "Talk, Talk". Alice alternates smoothly between his crunch and sneer voice and his smoother crooning voice. Very solid drumming by Dennis Conway. "Clones" is of course a great song, even though it wasn't written by Alice. "Pain" is one of the better songs on the album, both musically and lyrically. Starting out with just piano, the song then rocks out a bit in a strange time signature and Alice describes what pain would be like if it were a person. This song is followed by the minute and a half rockabilly tune "Leather Boots", with Alice doing his best Elvis impersonation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too shabby.
This was one of the last Alice Cooper CDs I bought, because I put his early 80s albums at the bottom of my must-have list. Shame. Read more
