Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Alice Cooper terrorized parents across America long before Marilyn Manson was out of his dirty diapers. On this album, compiled by former Meat Loaf sideman and one-time Cooper touring guitarist Bob Kulick, members of metal's biggest bands pay tribute to the artist formerly known as Vincent Furnier. New life is breathed into Cooper's classic tunes as hardheads such as Alice in Chains ' Mike Inez, the Who's Roger Daltry, Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, and Slash rework (and add their own distinctive licks to) "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "Billion Dollar Babies," and the anthem for graduating seniors everywhere, "Schools Out." The most unexpected contribution, however, comes from former Deep Purple bassist Glen Hughes, who after spending most of the '90s off the radar screen, wrings out a wickedly dramatic version of "Only Women Bleed," Cooper's dark paean to feminism. --Jaan Uhulzski

Another decent tribute CD put out on the Cleopatra label. Not great, but okay. Worth pulling out for a listen now and then. Many well established artists lend their time and effort for the making of this disc. A complete different line-up on each of the eleven tracks. Cuts I enjoyed the most were "No More Mr. Nice Guy" by Roger Daltrey, "Welcome To My Nightmare" by Ronnie James Dio, "Billion Dollar Babies" by L. A. Gun's Phil Lewis and "Elected" by Sex Pistol's guitarist Steve Jones. Believe there are a couple of other Cooper tribute CD's out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice Cooper Rules and so does this tribute November 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good album. The songs are all very good musically and there are some amazing musicians on this album. All on one CD you've got guitarists like Slash, Mick Mars and Marty Friedman, you've got Ronnie James Dio and Bruce Dickinson on vocals and the list goes on. In my view the highlights are Schools out (With Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman from Megadeth), Cold Ethyl(With Vince Niel and Mick Mars from Motley Crue) and Go to Hell (With shock rock deity Dee Snider and Ex-Ozzy guitar whizz/beer monster Zakk Wylde). All the songs on this album are very well performed, this is the sort of album you can listen to all the way through without being tempted to hit that skip track button.
I bought this album as a birthday present for my dad (a big Alice Cooper fan) and he liked it a lot too. I have listened to it a few times and might just have to buy my own copy.
The only dissappointment for me is that many of the great musicians that collaborated with Alice on 'Trash' and 'Hey Stoopid' did not appear on this album. For example: Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Ozzy, Joe Perry, Steve Tyler, Zodiac Mindwarp (They wrote 'feed my frankenstein'), Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi. Had these superstars contributed as well then this great album could have been even greater. I am not too dissappointed that songs off hey stoopid and trash were not covered because those songs already have lots of guest stars on them, and are just about as good as tock music gets . However I do feel that if someone did decide to do a tribute to Alice's eighties albums then it would be pretty awesome, just so long as the quality of musicians remained constant and the artists who appeared on the original tracks only played on tracks that they did not originally perform.
This is a great tribute to early Alice, Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best tribute albums April 20, 2001
By LUIS
Format:Audio CD
OK, we all know that tribute albums generally suck, but this one delivers the goods and then some. Instead of relying on bands to cover each song, different musicians from different bands join together for each track. That way we have Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman (Megadeth) joining Eric Singer (Kiss) and Bob Daisley (Sabbath/Ozzy) for School's Out. All the tracks feature this mix-up approach that works remarkably well and gives each song a fresh feel. The album rocks from start to finish, and most of Alice's hits are included. Also the musicians included truly pay tribute by sticking pretty close to the original arrangement of the song, this a good thing or bad thing depending on your point of view, the only real difference is that the songs sound a lot heavier!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tribute album September 22, 2005
By sevry
Format:Audio CD
Maybe one of the best tribute albums ever done. For those fans who prefer his more raspy voice and under-mixed guitar sound of Cooper himself, or the dated 'punk' interpretations on another tribute album, this won't seem to be what is it. This is a heavier, more produced, less of a garage-band sound, than the other. And so the songs play well, even after repeated listening. These are very strong covers of some of Cooper's greatest hits, his best work. And they show that he was behind some very well-composed tunes, that Cooper wasn't just shock and 'entertainment', but he was a composer and musician who spoke to some truths, on occasion. The complaint, again, that I've seen is that people do not prefer a faithful tribute, but that if cover bands are used that they cover in the style which they normally play. Even if not 'punk', if the CCM Guardian covered Elected, say, the critics would desire that it sound like Guardian. But I think there's definitely a place for covers produced in the way that is done here. I think it can be both.

While one may not approve of Cooper's own views or stage presence, or of the lyrics of certain songs (the putatively satirical Cold Ethyl, for ex, which I don't think is funny), other songs speak to a truth such as the stand-outs Eighteen, Elected, and of course the classic, Billion Dollar Babies. In terms of performance, only the signature - School's Out - is a little flat or weak compared to Cooper's own renditions. But even the silly ballad, Even Women Bleed, is well produced here. It's a must-have CD, in other words.
