The Strange Case of Alice Cooper

Biography

Every great production deserves a sequel – even if comes 35-plus years after the original.

In 1975, Alice Cooper joined forces with longtime collaborator and producer Bob Ezrin to record his first solo album Welcome to My Nightmare, a theatrical concept album about the nightmares of a young boy named Steven. Now, he’s followed Steven into adulthood and presents Welcome 2 My ... Read more in Amazon's Alice Cooper Store

By Rykre

I truly appreciate that Rhino Records re-released and remastered Alice Cooper's "Billion Dollar Babies" and "Welcome To My Nightmare" which included bonus tracks and more.

Rhino's 4 CD box set was rather a disappointment because they chopped up or only gave us "single" versions of many of his tracks. So when I saw "Welcome To My Nightmare" come out re-released and remastered from Rhino, I was hoping that Rhino would re-release and remaster Alice Cooper's entire catalog.

At least, Rhino should consider remastering Alice Cooper's "Love it To Death", "Killer", and "School's Out".

"Love it To Death", and "Killer" really need some extra attention. The first and only issues of these two albums from Warner Brothers just sound simply awful.

Come on Rhino, please finish what you started.

5.0 out of 5 stars School's Back In! May 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
SCHOOL'S OUT was the album that put the Alice Cooper Group way over the top.Taking every worn out cliche of American High School,a dollop of teen angst,and a love of WEST SIDE STORY,and you have a classic seventies(and beyond)release.The title track has always been a song to be played on the last day of school(very loudly!).Many music styles are incorporated:cool jazz(BLUE TURK),space rock(MY STARS),hard rock(PUBLIC ANIMAL NUMBER 9),and broadway show tunes(GUTTER CATS VERSUS THE JETS,FINALE).My favorite track is ALMA MATER because it shows a hitherto unseen sensitive side of the Coop.SCHOOL'S OUT is a perfect concept album for the teenage years.Even the cover was innovative for it's time(I wish I had the first edition with the "surprise" wrapper) .I'd advise all novice Cooper addicts to purchase this release.Remember the Coop,eh?

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Albums of 1972: No. 5 June 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Alice Cooper struck a universal chord with the title track from their fifth album and the group-penned anthem became the only Top 10 hit of their career--"School's Out" peaked at No. 7 in the summer of 1972. [Note: It was also a No. 1 hit for three weeks in the U.K.]

While "School's Out" is the focal point (and only hit) of this apparent concept album, there are other classic Alice Cooper songs here, including the rockin' "Luney Tune" (co-written by bassist Dennis Dunaway and Alice Cooper), the snarling "Public Animal #9, and the jazzy "Blue Turk" (the latter two co-written by guitarist Michael Bruce and Alice Cooper). Two other strong tracks are the ones inspired by the music from WEST SIDE STORY: "Gutter Cat vs. the Jets" and "Grande Finale." [It should be noted that Leonard Bernstein is given co-writer status on both of these tracks.]

In addition to the terrific music, the original LP was housed in an album jacket that could fold into an actual school desk--and the record was not in a paper sleeve but a pair of pink women's underwear! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic Alice Cooper February 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Alice Cooper is interesting, misunderstood, and hard to classify. Many have placed his music in the hard rock category, but in listening to the range of music on this CD I find jazz, rock, hard rock, progressive rock, instrumentals, and even a song that sounds like a Broadway show tune.
The CD opens with the title track. While the song sounds like it is anti-school and anti-establishment, the song is a parody of teen angst. It's easy to overlook the key line in this hard rock song, which is "Well we got no class and we got no principals and we got no innocence and we can't even think of a word that rhymes." The opening lyrics and the closing lyrics sound rebellious, but the middle line has more double entendres than a James Bond movie and pokes fun at people who do not go to school. This wonderfully subtle song is considered to be Alice Cooper's signature song.
"Luney Tune" is a bizarre song that evokes surreal images of horror that still contain pieces of parody regarding teenagers understanding their world and how they react to it. The last line is interesting because many teenagers have a difficult time understanding their mortality, and the images in the song are so surreal that dissociation is possible and what you do to yourself may not be happening, but then again, how would you know? The style of this song contains elements that were a part of new wave music in the following decade.
The following song continues the parody, this time of the fight in "West Side Story." The satire in this song is subtle in some ways, and blatant in others. Alice Cooper does a good job of conveying bloody images, but the lines that surround them are too humorous for the song to be taken seriously.

Format:Audio CD
Please Note: This review is for the Audio Fidelity limited edition gold disc NOT for any other editions. Amazon as usual has combined these into one mishmash that serves no one well. Amazon, you really, really need to address and fix this issue since it misrepresents the reviews making them, in effect, useless for many.

"School's Out" remains one of my favorite Alice Cooper albums. Steve Hoffman has done a really good job of remastering the album (although you shouldn't expect a miracle--the album itself suffered from a poor, often muddy mix) but those of you who have HDCD players may notice a glitch; the HDCD light your player may go off and on during the playing of the album. I'm not sure if that's an encoding glitch that occurred during the manufacturing process or not but those of you who want to purchase this may want to be aware of it. Reportedly there's an audible click when the CD goes out of HDCD mode however I did not hear it on my player (but I didn't listen to this on headphones either which might be why).

As for the sound of the CD itself--it's probably the best sounding version of the album but let's be honest--this will probably never sound perfect because of the mixing and production of the album itself unless someone goes back and remixes it.Is it a huge improvement over the previously issued CD? Yes and no. It does improve the clarity of the sound BUT the mix is still muddy something a remastering job won't change any time soon.

This has been reissued in a limited numbered edition. I'm hoping that Audio Fidelity won't have any more of these glitches because the sound quality on their reissues have been stellar.

3 stars for the sound and 1 star because of the HDCD issue. 5 stars for the album itself.
