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.
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.
This disc tears it up, spits it out and swallows again...you will not be disappointed!

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. Read morePublished on Dec 28 2003 by R. Recchia
I've been buying up Alice cds lately, and this is definitely the worst out of Constrictor, Special Forces, Trash, Hey Stoopid, Last Temptation, Brutal Planet, and Dragontown. Read morePublished on Feb. 18 2003 by Nick Teplanson

Yeah, yeah, we all know this isn't one of Alice's finer efforts. I mean, you'd never even guess it was Alice unless you're familiar with his voice(and that is sometimes tricky on... Read morePublished on Sept. 8 2002 by Stanley Runk
