Hi-Res
What do you do when you're a 73-year-old shock rocker in a world where rock doesn't shock but you still have gas in the tank? Relive the glory days. Alice Cooper's 28th album and first since 2017's Paranormal is an ode to the city where Alice got his start as one of the godfathers of hard rock. It was recorded with longtime producer Bob Ezrin, features players from Motor City legends like the MC5 and The Detroit Wheels, and attempts to recapture the grimy magic of his once-subversive project's inception in the early '70s. The stakes couldn't be lower for new Alice Cooper music in 2021, and the record sees him acknowledge that and then choose to rock out anyways for himself and whoever's listening. Even at 73, Alice is still a charismatic vocalist who sounds best when he's knee-deep in dirt-kicking blues-rock riffs, like on "Go Man Go," "Sister Anne," and the Sabbathy "East Side Story." Unlike '90s acolytes like Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, Cooper's strain of shock was always more silly than scary, and those sensibilities have aged nicely as the last few decades of culture have drained all the transgression out of his schtick. "Hail Mary" is a hammy hard-rock song about a woman who certainly doesn't invoke Virgin qualities, and when Cooper self-deprecatingly groans, "I'm dumb but even sometimes losers win," you can practically see his toothy grin materalize before you. Forty years ago, you would've been hard-pressed to see a critic describe Alice Cooper as comfort food, but now his nostalgically endearing antics have a warm, Grandpa-esque quality to them. The inoffensively awkward swerves into funk ("$1000 High Heel Shoes") and industrial ("Wonderful World") are goofy but easily forgivable. Other gimmicky tracks like "Detroit City 2021," a lovably dated-sounding anthem, and "I Hate You," a song where each band member playfully roasts the others with schoolyard taunts, find the sweet-spot between shlocky and unapologetically fun. The only track on the record that really doesn't work is the sunny power-pop song "Our Love Will Change the World," which is so bright and uplifting that it's unclear whether Cooper is being cheeky or earnest. The grungey power-ballad, "Don't Give Up," is a well-intentioned fight song for COVID-era resilience, but Cooper's spoken-word plug for the Suicide Prevention Hotline feels out of sorts on an album with a burning building and blood-red lettering on its cover art. At the end of the day, Detroit Stories doesn't really have all that much to say about its namesake and most of the songs lack the narrative focus one would associate with a story, but that's OK. Just hearing Alice Cooper do his thing, as he's done with remarkable consistency for over 50 years, is good enough. © Eli Enis/Qobuz

A few months after his 70th birthday, Alice Cooper is not looking forward to a retirement home. Detroit's prince of darkness is full of fire and brimstone throughout his album Paranormal. Recorded in Nashville with his old collaborator, producer Bob Ezrin, this 27th studio album from the wildest of the old masters of hard rock was in part written with several original members of his group, including Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce, but also prestigious guests like Larry Mullen, U2's drummer, Billy Gibbons, guitarist with ZZ Top, or Roger Glover, the Deep Purple bassist. As ever with Alice Cooper, the guitar riffs attack the ears, the artist's pen tackles themes as diverse as the devil (of course) but also nightmares and transgender issues. A record of quality. © CM/Qobuz

The question that everyone is asking obviously is: who needs a new compilation from the master of shock rock? Even if more have been released since the first Greatest Hits in 1974 than any of us can count, statistically, there is still a huge majority of people on this planet that doesn’t own a single one of his albums or even never once listened to him. So the question should rather be: can one start their initiation with this new double album? The answer is both yes and no. As indicated by the “Epic Years” label, this best-of only covers the era during which Alice Cooper was under contract with the powerful American label. It was a highly prosperous period that started in 1989 with the monumental Trash, with its procession of hits that were perfectly calibrated for FM radios (Poison, Bed of Nails House on Fire, Only My Heart Talkin) and a handful of others that belong to the category of Cooperian classics (Spark in the Dark, Trash, Hell Is Living Without You, I’m Your Gun). This album, which sold more than 2 million copies, completely relaunched Cooper’s career, a fact that surprised even the artist: “There are kids who come up to me on the street who think Trash is my first album.” But it also owed its popularity to the presence of guest stars, including almost all the members of Aerosmith (Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton and Joey Kramer), Jon Bon Jovi and his former accomplice Richie Sambora and Steve Lukather (Toto)… But eight tracks out of ten taken from Trash is either excessive or petty.Without being a failure, far from it, the following album didn’t enjoy the same success, despite using the same formula—if only more ambitious—with even more prestigious guests (Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and two members from Mötley Crüe, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars…). And yet, the entirety of its content was kept here. One track was put aside from the excellent The Last Temptation, but the collaborations with Chris Cornell were fortunately kept (Stolen Prayer and Unholly War). To justify despite all of that the “essential” label that could have seemed a bit excessive, three classics have been taken from the live A Fistful of Alice, and pretty great at that: No More Mr. Nice Guy, Billion Dollar Babies and School’s Out, but only the latter benefits from a true guest, Sammy Hagar, while Rob Zombie and Slash had also come to play with Cooper on stage for other tracks. A few less studio tracks in favor of more pieces coming from this well-made live would probably have been a more judicious choice. But if we had to give a clear answer to the question asked above, we would lean toward the affirmative. You can absolutely start with this album, since it corresponds to the years during which there was not much to throw away in Cooper’s production. But you will quickly need to explore further if you want to really know the artist… © Jean-Pierre Sabouret/Qobuz
