ALICE COOPER / Dragontown (2001)

Alice's 22nd studio album continued the heavier, grungier sound he'd adopted, but not to the exclusion of all else, there's still melody, there's traditional rock and roll and, of course, a ballad thrown into the mix. Yay! Thankfully, no matter how much he changes, there's always the unassailable essence of Alice underneath.
The lyrics from a number of songs suggest that the titular Dragontown is a part of Brutal Planet (2000). Both albums deal with notions of morality and reflect Alice's views of what constitutes good and evil.
