Just a year after Alice warned us that this indeed is a brutal planet, he’s back with “Dragontown”, an album that has a lot in common with its predecessor. The great Cooper is today quite modern in his musical expression, but if you think about it – for the last 20 years he always was. He was never accused of selling out, though “Trash” was a close attempt, and that proves that Alice always kept enough of his own style to please his fans. He always had great melodies, he always scared your family members, and he always had his brilliant humor, messing with amongst others; politics. This album is no exception. “Disgraceland” is a tribute to Elvis Presley (or is it?), while “Every Woman Has A Name” is another of Alice’s incredible ballads, kind of an “Only Women Bleed” part 284. The title track belongs to the best songs Alice ever has penned, while a couple of the other songs are not up to par for the Master Of Horror Rock. All in all, I find this record good, but not among his best. As a follow up to “Brutal World”, I prefer “Brutal…”, but like I said; Alice still pleases his fans, me included.
