When most people reach the age of 60, they begin to think about retirement or at least toning things down. The same cannot be said for rock legend Alice Cooper. Along many of his peers such as Ozzy Osbourne, Cooper has found the fountain of youth and continues to put out quality albums and is still a great live act. On Cooper’s new release “Along Came A Spider,” the original shockrocker decided to do what he does best and release a concept album. Along Came a Spider is about a serial killer named Spider who falls in love with one of his planned victims. In classic Cooper fashion, the album becomes a morality play. What happens? Well you will have to buy the album to find that out. The album is a good blend of a variety of musicial styles. A few of the tracks and riffs will remind you of his Brutal Planet period (one of my favorite later Alice phases) while some of the album sounds like his 70’s heyday. There even a few choruses that would fit with the 80’s material. In other words, whatever era of Alice you prefer, you will find it on this album. Standout tracks include “Killed By Love” and “Vengenance is Mine.” This album should please not only Alice fans, but fans of great hard rock. Don’t miss this one.
