Amoeba Review

07/27/2017

Alice Cooper is a one of a kind rock God. Although his shock rocker antics made him a legendary and controversial figure surrounded by questionable rumors and hearsay, the real Alice Cooper took elements of glam and made them dangerous and weirder in a type of proto-metal sound. Before the shredding guitars, black clothes, and connections to horror films that now seem to define metal, Alice Cooper put fear into the hearts of the '70s "me generation." Though in today's world he seems fairly tame compared to what you can watch on YouTube, Alice Cooper does a type of comical and winking variation on the theatrical rock sound he embraced with his latest album, Paranormal, that is equal parts campy and seriously crazy. The melody of the title track is rich and melodramatic, but the lyrics are filled with sardonic and outright mean things to say that feel like Alice Cooper has never dropped the influence of his old pal Frank Zappa. But riding behind it is "Dead Flies," which has a blistering drum cadence that could be right out of a military school. In case you weren't sure if Cooper was a weird dude, give "Genuine American Girl" a whirl. Recorded with the original band from his first album, Cooper sings from the point of view of a teenage girl, something guaranteed to cause a few people to squirm in their seats, making the song funny and outright disturbing. Steal your sister's mascara, slather it under your eyes and wear an outfit that would make a leather daddy blush. Being the type of weirdo who loves Alice Cooper feels more necessary than ever.
