Inspired by the Ozzy-solo thread. It might make sense to make a Ozzy vs. Alice poll but here's just to his solo albums (I didn't include the blackout-albums as no one would vote for them anyway)

While From the Inside is my nr #1 any day of the week, the rest of list changes with each listen for me.

I probably like the one with "Poison" on it best.

that would be Trash.

You didn't include "Hey Stoopid"; my first tape ever.

Trash because this is the only one I listened to really (with The Last Temptation...) even though I heard some of the others too.

In another thread people are discussing about nostialgia and the glorious times when they were discovering Dissection and/or Emperor. It's almost the same for me with Trash: it reminds me of this time when I was "exploring" metal in the broader sense of the term, Alice Cooper and Cannibal Corpse, Little Caesar and Venom and so on. I've got great memories about this album by the Coop although I haven't listened to it for years and won't probably do it again.

If I remember it was a highly collaborative record with Joan Jett, the infamous Desmond Child and others.

My totally off the wall nuts super orthodox and old testament insane hypocrite zealot of a Christian aunt used to LOVE Alice Cooper. Laughing

She was fucking cool when she was young. She lived in both Africa and China for an extended period teaching and travelling. At that time she was fucking the best aunt any child could want or have.

...apparently she fell in love with some blacker than night African man though and good old Dutch to the core grandpa (her father) wasn't having any of that, he bailed cause he was too cowardly to approach the heat and she was left heartbroken to marry some plain ass boring white fucker... and turned to that fucking imaginary jesus in the end to a degree that would spin anyone's head.

...but when she was cool she was a total Alice Cooper freak
Laughing (so fucking hard to imagine now)

Alice Cooper has a lot of good stuff. The Last Temptation is great and Along Came A Spider should be on this list. But as great as Welcome To My Nightmare is, I like the 80's stuff. Constrictor and Hey Stoopid being greats of that era.

Even though Raise Your Fist and Yell could be panned pretty legitimately, I love it, and have loved it since I was a fourteen year old horror movie addicted goon for whom that album just fit to perfection. Side two especially is fucking fantastic. I can forgive a silly chorus like "Chop Chop Chop" when "Roses on White Lace" is right around the corner; that may be my fave Alice song.

Welcome to My Nightmare, baby. Absolute classic.

I'm not really familiar with much of his output beyond that, but Brutal Planet is a surprisingly good album for an old rocker trying his hand at metal.

From the list Constrictor as it was my first album circa 30 years ago.

I really like Goes to Hell as well.

TRASH just slightly over NIGHTMARE. STOOPID wasn't bad, either.

lace n' whiskey sucked!

As many GOOD ones has he has... he has a surprising amount of CRAP.

It's a little too long, but it has some zingers and a great early 90s vibe! Especially Snakebite is brilliant and overlooked!

FUCK no Shocked side A is some of the best he has ever done! Side B doesn't keep up, but it's not bad either.

Sadly yes. It has taken me many years to find any merit in his blackout-albums, and most of his post-Brutal Planet material is still terrible.
