The Master Returns

by ajevans@ajevans.net on 7/29/2008

Alice Cooper brings the conceptual album back. While many have tried during the past twenty years to do a concept album, most have fallen just short of accomplishing anything close aside from puffy production to tie all the tracks together. Like 'Welcome To My Nightmare', 'From the Inside', 'The Last Temptation' and the brilliantly produced 'Brutal Planet' Alice has delivered another gem to the list of conceptual albums maintaining his place as the master. This storyline of songs being appropriately called "A disturbing album for disturbing times" is one not to be missed. While I was not too thrilled with 'The Eyes of Alice Cooper' or 'Rough Diamods', largely due to them lacking the essence of 'Temptation', 'Brutal Planet' and 'Dragontown' I was hoping for something a bit stronger than its two predecessors and 'Along Came a Spider' truly delivers. From the opening track through to the end, this is a strong collection of material featuring tracks like 'I Know Where You Live' 'Vengence is Mine' (my personal favorite) and 'Wake the Dead' which brings Ozzy Osbourne, depicting the thought processes of a very disturbed serial killer, which American culture seems to breeding in abundance these days, making this album all the more relevant. This album is sure to open the doors to a new generation of Alice Cooper fans and I am quite sure the tour is one not to be missed.
