Sound — 10
This disc is just pure heavy, dark, raw, powerful, and angry rock. I first heard these songs in the DVD Alice Cooper Brutally Live. The guitars plain out breathe fire, truly some of the greatest tracks for guitar in a long time. The lyrics are sinaster and some of the best lyrics Alice has ever written. Drums, the power! The drums are truly a work of art in this album. The bass pounds out the beat of some of the greatest Alice Cooper songs ever. I got about half of the songs off this album from iTunes, and the rest I saw on Brutally Live.
Lyrics — 10
Lyrics are amazing in this album. Singing is incredible, Alice did a great job! Here are some examples of some powerful song lyrics. Pick up the bones ("Pick up the bones, and set them on fire, follow the smoke, goin' higher and higher, pickup the bones, and wish them good night, pray 'em a prayer, and turn out the lights"), Gimme ("I know all your desires, your heart is so full of pain, is their something I can provide?, when you feel like life's past you bye, I'm on your side"), Wicked Young Man ("I like to run my body on heavy heavy fuel, I can punch through a wall I can kick like a mule, I got a pocketful of bullets and a blueprint of the school, I'm the devil's little soldier I'm the devil's little tool, I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man, It's not the games that I play the movies I see the music I dig, I'm just a wicked young man"), Brutal Planet ("Why don't you, come down to, It's such a brutal planet It's such an ugly world, Why won't you, come down to"), What A Sight ("This world is such perfection"), For My Eyes ("It's just like paradise"). That's a samle of some good parts of a few of my favorites on this great album.
Overall Impression — 10
This is probably one of my favorite albums ever! Best songs on the album (my opinion, in order of least to fav.): Wicked Young Man, Pick Up The Bones, Gimme, Brutal Planet, Blow Me A Kiss, Sanctuary. I love the overall power and evil of this great Alice album. If it were stolen or lost, the guy ho stole it would be hunted down and not live to steal another album ever again.
