some tunes. An obvious Beatle influence again. Just great songwriting.
I can't see how anyone would dismiss this album as crummy. It is more listenable than the debut, so I don't wanna hear that crap about it being too weird or too sloppy. This is really one of AC's most cohesive albums, in terms of songwriting, and in terms of musical technicality. Just listen to the breakdown in Below your Means. Or the progression of Lay Down and Die. Or the melody of Beautiful Flyaway. The hook of Misemeanor.Read more ›
The classic Alice Cooper band, made up of himself, Michael Bruce, Glen Buxton, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith, released their first album, Pretties For You, in 1969. Although the album was a very good one, it was lacking the sound that would make the band such a hit in the years to come. Likewise, it didn't achieve any true popularity outside of the small cult following that the band had built up. The band needed to find a way to appeal to the masses, and in 1970, they began to change their sound. That year, they released their sophomore album, Easy Action. This was the band's second and last album on Frank Zappa's record label How does it measure up? Read on for my review.
This is the classic Alice Cooper band's transitional album, and it's on this album that they began to lean toward using the classic sound that fans would grow to love them for in the years that would immediately follow. The solid blues rocker, Mr. And Misdemeanor, kicks things off. Bluesy rock never sounded so good. With this opening track, Alice and the boys grab your attention and hold onto it tightly - exactly what the first track of an album should do. Shoe Salesman is an interesting little pop rock that is strangely reminiscent of John Lennon. This is considerably different from what you're used to hearing from the Coop, but it's still damn good. On the gloomy Still No Air, it's not the guitars or vocals, but rather Dennis Dunaway's bass playing that steals the show. It's hard to make such a bass-heavy song, much less a good one, but here the boys do it without fail. Below Your Means is a slower track. It's not one of the best tracks on the album, but it's not a bad one by any means either.Read more ›
