This is one of the best alice albums,every song is very cool.
kurtis primm
Flush the Fashion is not typical album but considering it's release in the 80's with the new wave era it's very good.
Bela
There are a handfull of good songs here, and a lot that fall pretty flat.

As an Alice Cooper fan I really like "Flush the Fashion", but then again I like almost every album, and every era of Alice Cooper. It seems like other reviewers also had a tough time either recommending this disk, or not. As a Cooper fan you already come to the party with a bias in favor the music. "Flush the Fashion" really launched the New Wave era for Cooper that also included "Special Forces" & "Zipper Catches Skin" (I don't include "Dada" in this era, simply because it doesn't fit into any Cooper era). You have to give Cooper credit if for nothing else, than for trying something new. Alice could have just holed up and penned songs that sounded like "School's Out" or done "Welcome to my Nightmare" rip-offs for the rest of his career. Instead he tried to go a different route and completely changed his sound. I think "Flush the Fashion" works well in some places like "Pain". "Pain" is one of the best Alice Cooper songs of any era. "Clones", "Aspirin Damage" and "Nuclear Infected" also work well, and give you a handy little snapshot of 80's attitude. "Dance Yourself to Death", "Model Citizen" and "Headlines" don't work as well, but they are still enjoyable and listenable. Overall, if you like Cooper, you will like this album, if only a fan of the hits, then look elsewhere first.

First of all, this is my all time favourite Alice Cooper album, and yes, I have heard them all. This album's songs are all classics, my favourite being Clones. If dance music isn't your thing, however, I recommend Killer. It's early but it's cool.

I'm a huge Alice fan. Naturally I favor the original group, but this is Alice in top form for the first time in years. He'd become limp and boring after his first post-original band album "Welcome to my Nightmare". Every album from "Nightmare" on had to have the requisite sappy ballad hit single. Then comes "Flush the Fashion". Yes, Alice went new wave....but GOOD new wave. More in the Cars vein than say, the Vapors. Really, this is a great rock-n-roll record. There's a freshness to this album that makes it sound like a debut. It's so different for Alice that there are bound to be a lot of people who just don't get it. Believe me, this one blows away pap like "Constrictor", "Brutal Planet", "Trash", etc. It also blows away the likes of "Alice Cooper Goes to Hell", "Lace & Whiskey" and "From the Inside". As many have noted here, 'Pain' is one of Alice's best songs...of any era. It has a dramatic almost early 70's glam feel to it. Bowie almost could have written it in the same batch of tunes as 'Time' from "Aladdin Sane". 'Clones' is full-on new wave and an incredible ultra-catchy single. 'Leather Boots' is an early 80's Rockabilly tune with an S&M Cop theme while songs like 'Grim Facts' and 'Nuclear Infected' are no frills Rock-n-roll. Other songs like 'Headlines' and 'Dance Yourself to Death' aren't quite up to snuff but definitely listenable. I should point out that his lyrics are also top-notch here. His dark (and sometimes not so dark) sense of humor is working overtime. This album is not a great example of Alice as a whole because no other AC lp sounds like this one. It is simply a fantastic album in it's own right.

Wow, Flush the Fashion is a fantastic pop album, very similar to the Cars, Elvis Costello, and maybe even a touch of Blondie. This is just a really good pop album from the early 80's. If you like your rock and roll short, catchy, and full of life and excitement (and even somewhat danceable) this is a really good album to listen to. It's a huge mistake ignoring this album, or even criticizing it for that matter- Alice Cooper didn't turn into another generic hard rock band just yet!

Alright, maybe the album loses a little bit of steam near the end, because by that point we're hearing early signs of stuff like Motley Crue and other bands that were to arrive shortly after, but that's hardly a reason to think less of THIS album. Many of the choruses are loud and screaming with excitement.

If the album has one flaw, it's that it's too short. Not even 30 minutes long? Give me a BREAK! Besides, this album might have his very best song- "Clones". LOVE that one. "Talk Talk" and "Pain are other highlights. "Leather Boots" is absolutely COOL. Get this album now.

I have avoided Alice's "Flush the Fashion" for years due to negative reviews. Anyway, I picked it up on a whim with a few other of the more obscure Cooper albums. Ok, ok...this is a REALLY rockin' album, and I was totally surprised. It was produced by Roy Thomas Baker (The Cars) so it has a little of that vibe/sound, but it's undeniable Alice. I wish I had got this sooner. The way each track effortlessly segues into the next is great and the song Clones (We're All) is one of Cooper's best. There is plenty of humour throughout these tight punchy numbers. For example, check out the tunes, Aspirin Damage, Model Citizen and Grim Facts. Check it out you may be surprised, like I was...

I was 10 when this was first released and I must admit I wore out the grooves in the vynil with my constant playing. Now 27 years later I have finally repurchased it on CD and I am very happy I did. I love every song on this release and it absolutely rocks, whether the song has a New Wave flavor or is straight-up Alice Cooper rock-n-roll.

Alice is quite a character and it shows in his lyrics and delivery. Not the best vocalist, but hey, does one have to be in order to be a great rock performer? I will answer that for you with a resounding NO!

This is a much overlooked classic and I plan on introducing it to my friends that totally missed it the first time around.
