iTunes Review

Alice Cooper’s 10th studio album doesn’t play with the flowing continuity of a normal Alice Cooper album. In 1977 a many rock records were drowning in overproduction and Lace & Whiskey was no exception. And to further befuddle the fans who love Alice Cooper for his teenage delinquent anthems and onstage guillotine antics, Lace & Whiskey was somewhat of a conceptual album about Maurice Escargot — a film noir styled private eye. But amidst all that went wrong, there are still some bona-fide gems to be mined from the darker corners here. “It’s Hot Tonight” starts off the album on the right foot (or platform boot) with some of that dirty, greasy-haired, riff-rock and fiery imagery in the lyrics. The title track lets cinematic narrative and out-of-place elements (like castanets and generic backing vocals) overshadow the song, but the menacing “Road Rats” sounds like the hard rocking Alice Cooper that everyone knows and loves. “(No More) Love At Your Convenience” dangerously flirts with disco which was ultra-taboo during the “Disco Sucks” era. But “You And Me” makes up for it with winsome balladry.

Customer Reviews

Beware of the length of "You And Me"

This downloadable 'album' contains the single version of "You And Me", which runs 3:26. The original album version ran about 5 minutes. I-Tunes properly lists the length as 3:26, but any purist seeking the album version will have to look elsewhere.

One of the Greats

There are few albums that I own that I can listen to over and over again from start to finish. Along with the majority of my Alice albums, this one really takes the cake. It's just an incredible album all around. If I could give it a 6 star rating, I would.

Alice

I'm not sure how old any of the previous reviewers are, but they are more than likely Johnny Come Lately's in terms of Alice knowledge and insight. Lace and Whiskey was NOT released after "From the Inside" but actually prior to it. In 1977 Alice was such an alcoholic he could barely stand up to sing these songs into the mic. A couple of months after completing this album he checked into rehab. THEN, after his release he wrote and recorded "From The Inside". Get the correlation? This album is incredible in the for the simple fact that the artist was barely coherent and still managed a better collection of songs than most of his late 80s efforts. (Feed my Frankenstein???) Alice is a true rock n roll chameleon-different sounds in different stages of his sometimes twisted life. Try out "Special Forces" and "Zipper Catches Skin" for an even different side to the man's music.Long live Alice.

Originally, there was a band called Alice Cooper led by a singer named Vincent Damon Furnier. Under his direction, Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, heavy metal, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood, and huge boa constrictors, all coordinated by the heavily made-up Furnier. By that time, Furnier had adopted the name...
