    I like Alice Cooper; those are five cool tunes.

    I've yet to hear this new EP. But I know I will, really soon. I'll post my take on the 'new' versions of these old classics, once I hear them.

      Oh, this was a news flash to me and surprising one at that! Didn't even know about this until now, I knew he's been making his new studio album "The Night Shift" for a while...

      Have to get this, Alice is one of my rock gods and he's already blown me away live twice...

      ALICE = ROCK

        Those will be cool to hear. Except for 'School's Out' which is the most overatted song of his career. I would've re-recorded Billion Dollar Babies or one of his other hits that are way better than School's Out.

        Also, did anyone else hear that Bob Ezrin and Alice are working together again!! They're suppose to be writting stuff for Alice's new album together. It seems 'The Night Shift' is being put on the backburner for now. The rumor going around is that they're working on a sequal to 'Welcome To My Nightmare'!!!

          I heard the Elected version (the one that is free to download) and boy, does it kick ass. Alice still kills it both inside the studio and out.

          I'm also extremely excited to hear that Alice is working with Bob Ezrin again. His records with Ezrin sounded the best tonally and are the real Alice classics. Hopefully they strike that magic again.

            I haven't heard these, but I doubt they can improve on the originals. Modern production, perhaps ... I'd love to hear the Killer album done again with modern production.

            I saw Alice five times in the '70s and unfortunately haven't seen him since. I'd love to hear him do a project with Iommi/Butler

              You haven't seen him since? I highly recommend you take the opportunity next time it presents himself. He comes around every year or two (tours six months out of the year) and the man still has it. Killer band, killer voice, killer performances (literally!).

                I saw him last summer with BOC opening at the Ohio state fair and it was great. He played a 28 song set.

                  I bought the EP. Pretty cool. I also love his single Keeping Halloween Alive.

                    Except for Welcome To My Nightmare, anything after the original AC band never came close to his early material.

                      Agreed. Can it be played better than Buxton, Dunaway, and Smith did? I doubt it.

                        True... there was a great article on the original band and the eventual breakup. It was in Guitar Player the issue that had Iommi on the cover (a few months back)! Anyway, the original band was great, great song writing. The article told of each band memebrs recalection of each album right up to Welcome TMN. There's the Alice Cooper band era, then there's the Alice Cooper with a backing band era...no comparo.

                            Alice Cooper was a 5 Member band: Michael Bruce, Glen Buxton, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith, in addition to Alice. And IMO anything after the original band never came close to the ACG material.

                              I dont like his current direction... all albums up to trashed is really fucking brilliant, especially Welcome to my Nightmare, probably one of my favorite albums ever... But after trashed I think it just started going down for him.

                              He still puts on a good show tho, as he always have.

                              But to get on topic, I doubt very much that those will even come close to the original
