Alice Cooper - Alice Does Alice Ep

The original shock rocker has decided to re-record five Cooper classics for this iTunes only release. 'Schools Out', 'No More Mr Nice Guy', Elected', Eighteen' and 'Welcome To My Nightmare' are the classics in question.

As you would expect, Alice remains very faithful to the originals, maintaining that classic 70's era Cooper sound, with a really crisp and clean production, which in many ways enhances these new versions. I love all five songs here, and if I had to find faults, then it would be with Alice's vocals on 'Elected', where to me he just seems to be struggling.

Worth buying? Probably only for the completests amongst us, as the songs remain so faithful to the originals, but a great little EP none the less!
