Pretty much the perfect AC compilation this. Rather than put you through my opinions of each of these tracks - which will be familiar to many of you anyway, I'll just point out a few things that may get you thinking or sway your decision.

1) With 21 tracks this is a chock full disc. And it covers the 70's through to the early 90's.

2) It includes some of the guys art rock phase, which was always more linear than Zappas but still kinda out there. The benefit of including this stuff is that it gives the new an a real taste for the guys career.

3) Great liner notes - you get snippets of info plus a few photos and also a discography up to and including Brutal planet which also gives the actual release dates for the albums and the producer for each album.

This would be a great buy for the newcomer to hard rock/metal wanting to get an education or the casual fan of a couple of AC tunes that just want's a disc that's a decent retrospective up to the turn of the century. More hardcore fans probably own all these tunes anyway so will have to decide for themselves!

They don't make rock'n'roll like this these days... I'm not saying I don't like nowadays music, but nobody can make it like Alice Cooper.
This compilation is, in my opinion, a must-have for any music fan out there. It doesn't matter if you like rock, pop, rap or classical music; what matters is that this CD has 21 tracks of great music, something who seems to be unknown to most bands today.
My favorite songs in here are "Desperado", "Hey Stoopid", "I Never Cry", "I'm Eighteen", "No More Mr. Nice Guy", "Only Women Bleed" and "Teenage Lament '74". These songs are just awesome, you must listen them to know what I'm saying.
The message of this review is simple: buy this CD, it's awesome. I don't need to explain anything more, this is the Definitive Alice Cooper compilation and you should take it home.

Basically, a 21-track compilation of Cooper's big hits, plus some of those 'deep album cuts' that us old school Alice Cooper fans never really grow tired of hearing. Tunes like his Jim Morrison tribute "Desperado", "Halo Of Flies" (I about s*** my pants when I saw him play this song on his 'Rock & Roll Carnival Tour' a few years ago), "Hello Hooray", "Generation Landslide" (nice harp work), "Teenage Landslide '74" and "From The Inside". Very nice.

This collection came out in 2002 and contains songs from the period of when Alice Cooper was in his heyday as a recording artist. Not sure what he has done in the recording studio but can see that he is still performing live and on TV (pretty good for a man in his 60s).

For all the stage diabolism, it was all a great theatrical act. He was a great performer presenting a wonderful macabre image but offstage he is a born again christian, a teetotaller (after earlier alcoholism) and a keen golfer. I suspect that had he actually been what he appeared to be, the act would have been less entertaining and he probably would have died long ago.

My memories of Alice Cooper include Top of the Pops (School's Out), the Muppet Show (Welcome to my Nightmare and Schools Out) and The Two Ronnies (Welcome to my Nightmare) as well as appearances in Waynes World. As I say, Alice Cooper is a mainstream entertainer rather than a debauched rockstar.

Anyway what of the music? This is a very well filled CD of 21 tracks lasting over 70 minutes taking you through most (but not all) of hit most memorable tracks. I love the sheer abandon and joy (and humour) of School's Out and Department of Youth, the creepiness of Welcome to my Nightmare, and Billion Dollar Babies, the sheer energy and excitement of Poison, No More Mr Nice Guy and Hey Stoopid. What I did not expect was how moving and lyrical he could be. Only Women Bleed, I Never Cry and How You Gonna See me Now? are all very tender and moving songs.
There are also many less familiar songs on this CD which I also enjoyed. I have to say that it was a really excellent feelgood compilation.

What also makes this CD nice to have is Alice Cooper's own notes. I hadn't realised how personal some of the songs were.
