Not regarded as one of Alice's best, but it's so much more than an interesting find. It's too bad the stage will never see Alice as private eye Maurice Escargot again...
Well, i'm a fan of ALL eras of Alice. And I must say that I went out on a limb when purchasing this, but i'm glad to say I'm not disapointed!
Sure, this isnt Alice's best work. But its defnitly somthing I'd recomend you listen to if your into Alice. I would recomend other Alice titles as opposed to this one, and I wont tell you this is a MUST HAVE album! But it certinly is a very underrated rock album!
It's god some great tunes and Alice has written some great songs here, my fav would be "no mor elove at your conveniance" but why do you care whats my fav?
The album has some funny moments too, I think it gets put down by alot of people because they dont get the humour of the album, Alice mocks a few of the BALLED bands of the time when this was released around mid 70's. And some pretty funny stuff caught me off guard that just reminds you that Alice Cooper is not about trying to win awards for his music, he's just having fun.
Probably only the Alice fan of any era would enjoy this album. I wouldnt recomend this as a starting album, or one of the top tating must have albums, like i said before. But it does have some great rock tunes, some nice contruction to the songs and some fun rockin tunes.... it really is more an album that will play more on your own personal taste then anything else, to me, its a pretty good album.
Only the die hard fans of the original Alice Cooper band who wont accept that Alice has gone onto do better things will tell you this album is bad. Or the people who didnt get the humour that Alice provided through the album.Read more ›
The opener "It's Hot Tonight" has excellent loud guitar solos by Wagner along the great set of lyrics by Alice. The beats and the guitar riffs are just out of the world. The title track "Lace & Whiskey" is a real catchy tune and is another Alice classic. The next track "Road Rats" is definately without a doubt the heaviest track on the album with loud squelling guitars and real trashy lyrics by the Nightmare child himself. It's definately a 5-Star Masterpiece!
The next track "Damned If You Do" is a very catchy tune and has a good swing in the lyrics to it. The chorus line lyrics go like "You're Damned If You Do, damned if you don't. Damned if you do, damned if you won't." Another classic Alice ballad is "You And Me." This ballad easily fits right in with 1975's "Only Women Bleed," and 1976's "I Never Cry." The song is basically about marriage life and the loving relationship between a husband and wife. It's the perfect ballad for a married couple to listen to.
This track "Ubangi Stomp" is a real classic rock tune. It's sounds a lot like a 50's rock song. It's a another catchy tune. Alice sings the lyrics also in a 50's tone as if he's a 50's rocker. Alice and Dick did a great collaboration on this tune. Without a doubt it is a classic.Read more ›
