Specialists/collaborators reviews

Definately not Alice's best. Upon first crushing riffage it immediately sounds like a ripoff of Rammstein, especially on the “Sehnsucht” album. The last song “Cold Machines” starts off ripping off “The Beautiful People” from Marilyn Manson. The songs on this album are ok, but this is ALICE COOPER. They're supposed to be more than ok, right? I mean even the stuff in the 80s may have been playing keep up with the new game in town but at least the songs were catchy and the lyrics were clever. On this album it simply feels like Alice is trying a little too hard to be relevant in an ever changing musical landscape and instead of trying to find some relevant life experiences to bring forth a new surge of creativity he seems to be trying to borrow here and supplement there from the well that has already sprung forth much more talented acts for this kind of sound. Nice try Alice but this one just lacks sincerity, integrity and worst of all, anything that grabs my attention.
Warthur
Alice Cooper's lucrative glam metal phase was beginning to wear thin, so his next step was to inject his approach with a heavy dose of industrial-tinged traditional metal (seeing how Marilyn Manson had done so well with combining that with Cooper's shock-rock theatricality). The end result of this is Brutal Planet, which adds a little crunch to the proceedings and sees Cooper in a somewhat more serious mood. The lyrical topics tackle a variety of social ills - xenophobia, sexism, and so on - through the lens of Cooper's own Christian faith, which he declares fairly adamantly on the title track.

It isn't as groundbreaking, memorable, catchy or entertaining as the trashy glam rock proto-metal classics of Cooper's back catalogue, but at the same time the album proves that you can be a Christian heavy metal artist who expresses their faith through their music without becoming a mouthpiece for right-wing social policies or getting excessively preachy - and rock out hard whilst you do so. In that sense, it's arguably Cooper's most successful album for a long time.
