That's the way I like uncle Alice! Released in 1986 Constrictor is a great example of it's era. Back in the 80s glam rock and metal were very popular so mr. Cooper's decision to record album like this seems no surprise. And the result is fantastic! This album has all the ingredients needed to be essential. Solid rock anthems, great musicianship and production. There is no need to describe the album song by song but I have to mention Teenage Frankenstein one of the most popular Alice Cooper songs, Thrill My Gorilla with it's Judas Priest like chorus and the closing track He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask) written for Friday 13th soundtrack with it's disco like synth parts. In conclusion 25 years later in the time of hard and glam rock revival this album still sounds fresh and modern.
