This album was very disappointing from a sales point of view, and that is certainly a shame. As Alice Cooper albums go, this one is really far above average. It seems to be one of his albums that tried to merge the older, creepy style with a newer, more alternative style. From the spooky opening tones of the title track, that horror movie chic that Cooper did so well is quite apparent. Other tracks, such as "Former Lee Warmer," also do well at capturing that sort of a mood. Still, there are lighter-hearted, more alternative rock-type pieces such as "Scarlet and Sheba" and "Enough's Enough." One the humorous side, Cooper gives "I Love America" and "Dyslexia." The lyrical pun to the latter cut is absolutely priceless. This album is a rather varied release, showcasing several sides of Cooper's musical tastes, but it is all very entertaining. If you missed it when it first came around, do yourself a favor and give it a try now.

Dada based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The above headline speaks for itself. I've had this album for over five years now and I still get goosebumps and shivers whenever I listen to it. Dada represents a side of Alice he should explore more and more and more. Dada is also a personal favorite of mine. When you listen to it you can feel the terror in the air. It's just a great,spooky,eerie album, plain and simple.
