ALICE COOPER / Constrictor (1986)

A timely return to the spotlight for Alice after getting himself fixed up in a clinic for people who like their vices a little too much. He'd been gone for three years.
It's cheesy mid-eighties rock and as such is hard to recommend to anyone who didn't discover it close to the era, or someone who isn't interested in the musician's career as a whole. It's not quite hair-metal, but it's definitely girlfriend-metal. You know what I mean. 'Nuff said.

Songs of Note: Teenage Frankenstein; He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)

2½ the nightmare plays it safe out of 5
