P.S. Marilyn Manson is just a poseur! Long Live Alice!
The results are quite impressive. Along Came A Spider reunites us with "Steven", the childlike alter-ego to the murderous and insane "Alice Cooper"(or is it the other way around? We may never know. Hoo Hoo Ha Ha!). Steven was introduced to us on the Welcome To My Nightmare album, and would pop up here and there throughout Alice's career. Steven now calls himself, "The Spider" and is a serial killer. Alice handles his plot, lyrics and storytelling duties wonderfully. Also with a dash of humor, as to be expected from Alice.
Musically it seems that many folks have different ways they've interpreted it. I'd have to say that to my ears, the sound of this album is a cross between Dirty Diamonds and The Last Temptation. The ballads remind me of the kind of tunes you'd hear on Alice's mid to late 70s period albums like From The Inside or Lace and Whiskey. Alice is still using a few guys from his Dirty Diamonds/Eyes of Alice Cooper band lineup, but with a few new musicians. Slash also makes a guest appearance on "Vengeance Is Mine". These songs are very good, but need a few listens to get their fangs into you. For me, on the first listen I did find the album overall enjoyable, but nothing really seemed to jump out. On the second listen, that all changed and the songs really began to take hold.Read more ›
