ALICE COOPER IS OUTSTANDING!,
This review is from: Classicks (Audio CD)I bought this album because I had heard a couple of Alice's songs and thought they were pretty good so I bought a classicks album and said "WOW!" Alice Cooper is amazing in singing with his psycho personality.
This album consists of Alice's all-time hits and some of his famous classicks LIVE! This greatest hits collection is the best out of all the other Alice greatest hits CD's. The major hits of the album includes the famous deadly, "Poison." Also one of Alice's most evil hits, "Feed My Frankenstein." The CD also consists of Alice's great ballads such as "Stolen Prayer", "It's ME", and a live version of his classic "Only Women Bleed."
The second half consists of six life tracks recorded in Birmingham, AL in 1989. The live tracks are so INTENSE and LOUD that Alice makes you feel like you're actually at the concert. The intense heavy metal track, "Under My Wheels" sounds great on stage. Another great live version is "No More Mr. Nice Guy." The greatest live piece is Alice's all-time greatest hit, "School's Out." The song is 100x better than the orginal studio recording. Last but not least is Alice's remake of Jimi Hendrix's "Fire". Alice did a great job on vocals for this. He sang it in such a trashy tone just like Jimi and it turned out great.
If you're interested in buying a CD of Alice Cooper, start with this so you can get a great taste of how he sounds. The album has hits from the 70's - Present. Every time I'm intereted in buying a CD of a new artist, I buy a hits collection to listen to their overall sound. This album definately does more than just that. Alice gets you HOOKED! This is the first Alice CD I bought and now I have over ten in just half a year. There's your're example of how easily any rock fan can get hooked on Alice Cooper. ROCK ON ALICE!
