ALICE COOPER / Zipper Catches Skin (1982)

I’d walk any distance, with no shoes, over glass to see Alice in concert but I wouldn’t walk across the street in my comfy slippers to see him if he was to just play this album in its entirety.  Alice claims to have no memory of recording it, suffering from an alcoholism haze at the time.  It’s not entirely awful.  His vocals are okay but the music is lazy, uninspired, the production is flat and the melodies utterly forgettable.  It’s still better than Trash (1989).
