CD Reviews
A Fistful of Alice
Review by Gary Hill
It has been said that this release is redundant because hard-core Alice Cooper fans already have a solid live album in The Alice Cooper Show. However, I find that this release is a a considerably better recording, and that the performance presented herein is superior to that one.

Along Came A Spider
Review by Gary Hill
Alice Cooper is a performer who has (in the opinion of this reviewer) always had a problem with consistency. Sometimes it’s represented with an album that has some awesome music, but a few songs that leave you scratching your head.

Billion Dollar Babies (Limited Edition Hybrid SACD version)
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always loved this album. It’s one of the “band” albums from Alice Cooper.

Brutal Planet
Review by Gary Hill
Quite probably Alice's strongest release in years, and possibly one of the best ever, this disc is a concept album that musically seems to take the classic Alice sound and bring it up to date with a hard (even brutal) edge. The album really seems to fully integrate those two types of sounds, which is something that he seems to have been struggling with in recent years.

Classiks
Review by Gary Hill
You could say that there are enough Alice Cooper compilations out there. Here’s the thing, though.

Dragontown
Review by Gary Hill
Last year Cooper introduced to a world he called "Brutal Planet", and it was a brutal sounding very hard-edged release that had a strong concept to it. One would expect more of the same on his follow up, but that is not what he delivered.

Dragontown (Special Edition)
Review by Gary Hill
This Special Edition version of Alice Cooper's Dragontown contains the entire original album as the first CD of this 2 CD set. A second CD has been added wiuch contains four previously unreleased songs and two videos.

Goes to Hell
Review by Gary Hill
This was the second Alice Cooper album as a solo performer (rather than the front man of Alice Cooper the band).

More...
Hey Stoopid
Review by Gary Hill

This album showcases a metal perpective on the classic Cooper sound and also shows prog tendencies in several places. Alice is joined on this album by many musicians, including several very notables guests (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Ozzy Osbourne and others).

Muscle of Love Hybrid SACD
Review by Gary Hill
I remember borrowing this on vinyl from a friend many years ago.

Paranormal
Review by Gary Hill
I always look forward to new Alice Cooper albums. While I don't love everything he's done, he generally manages to entertain, and I'm a big fan.

The Eyes of Alice Cooper
Review by Gary Hill

Alice Cooper has never been the most consistent artist. When he has it right he is brilliant.

The Last Temptation
Review by Gary Hill
This album is show biz from Cooper. It really feels like much of the high entertainment of `70`s era Cooper, while bringing a new intensity and power to them. This one has plenty of spooky moments along with humor.

The Last Temptation (20th Anniversary Edition)
Review by Gary Hill
So, I’ve already reviewed this album in an earlier release.

Trash (Reissue)
Review by Gary Hill
I remember when this album first came out, I wasn’t really very impressed by it.

More...
Welcome to My Nightmare
Review by Gary Hill
To many this classic album represents Alice Cooper at his theatric best. It is a loosely knit concept album that at times is a bit weak, at times a bit over the top, but in many ways a spooky masterpiece.

Alice Cooper - Brutally Live DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Recorded in London on July 19, 2000, this is a great record of Alice's Brutal Planet tour and a killer concert video to boot. The show begins with a warning from the robotic "controller" to get away while you have the chance.

Alice Cooper - Live at Montreux 2005 DVD
Review by Gary Hill
I've been an Alice Cooper fan for a very long time and have seen him live on numerous occasions. As such I suppose I'm a pretty good person to review this new DVD.

Review by Gary Hill

Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare Special Edition DVD
Review by Gary Hill
I remember having the two features on this DVD as separate VHS tapes years ago. Those tapes are long gone, so to finally have this in my collection again is great.

Alice Cooper - Live at Beloit Riverfest, July 9, 2004
Review by Mike Korn
I had seen Alice only a couple of years ago, while he was touring behind the "Dragontown" CD, and enjoyed the experience, so I didn't feel it was much of a risk to venture up into the land of cheese
and beer (Wisconsin) and check out the madman once more at Beloit Riverfest.

Review by Gary Hill

Alice Cooper - Live in Las Vegas, Nevada, August 2017
Review by Larry Toering
One of the shows on this Vegas trip was seeing the spectacular Alice Cooper event on a three-band bill with Deep Purple and Edgar Winter Group. It was not a well-paired event on anything besides paper though.

Alice Cooper - Live In Milwaukee, August 7, 2000
Review by Gary Hill
As the Cooper show began, a large, robotic presence was seen on the stage. He told us of his quest to destroy Alice Cooper and his evil.

This book is not really new material but rather a collection of Gary Hill's articles for a website called “Suite 101."  Some might not like dated material, but I find these types of books enjoyable for a number of reasons.
