Alice Cooper – Love It To Death

★★☆☆☆ = Eh, fine

What’s it sound like?

‘Hard’ classic rock


Aside from 18 I’m not familiar with Alice Cooper’s catalog so I was looking forward to this when I saw it was high on WFMUs most played albums list. This album starts off as solid barebones rock and roll. It recounts the doors (black juju), and a forebearer to chord driven punk like the Ramones (Long way to go), sounds of Iggy pop and Black Sabbath are definitely at play.

Unfortunately it feels slightly watered down from those greats and it begins to show itself as the album wears on; I just don’t find it to be a great listen. Hard to write as I know this was influential to many but to my ears it just doesn’t stand the test of time.
